Benefits to using a Virtual Assistant
So business is going well, you have an established customer base, you may be thinking why do I need a Virtual Assistant?
Well, consider this for a moment. Do you ever think if only I had more time? Or, I would like help but can’t justify employing someone full time? Recruiting employees can be a time-consuming and expensive experience. This is where I can help.
Business owners are often doing everything themselves; owner, administrator, marketing executive, sales, accountant & HR. As a result, they spread themselves too thinly and cannot get everything done. Even if you have a small team you won’t necessarily have someone dedicated to doing your marketing and perhaps can’t justify that expense full time. What if you had someone on call that could do these tasks whenever you need it?
What each client will use a VA for will vary? For some, it may be to do something they don’t have the knowledge and experience in, others it may be something they don’t enjoy or simply want to free themselves up to focus on their customers. Maybe you need help with general admin, you might need marketing support, someone to upload content and manage your website or your social media. Perhaps all your prospect and customer data is in several places and you need it in an easy to manage the system or someone to write and send out your email newsletters for you.
The main benefits to using a VA are:
When you hire a virtual assistant you save money in several ways; no agency fees, no equipment to buy, no money spent on training, no benefits, tax or National Insurance to pay. You won’t have the expense of sick pay, holiday pay, or for the non-productive times like tea breaks/lunch breaks.
Pay only for the time taken to do the job
Using time-tracking software whilst working on tasks means complete transparency and you only pay for the actual time taken to do the task. If you were to employ a temp you would have to pay them for a whole day when the work needed may only take a couple of hours.
You get back more hours in your day to focus on core areas
By outsourcing some of these tasks, this will give you more time every day to focus on what you do best and building your business.
Because your VA already has the skills they will probably get the task done much quicker.
Virtually no training required
With in-house staff, there will inevitably be training required in various systems/software. A VA will already have the knowledge to get the job done.
