Ever feel that there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done? This is a common problem for business owners, but it doesn't have to be this way. With the help of a Virtual Assistant, you can free up valuable time to focus on the tasks that you are best at. A VA is a personal or business support professional who can help support you remotely with day-to-day tasks. In this blog post, we will discuss what a VA is - and how they can help your business grow!
So what is a Virtual Assistant?
Not to be confused with Siri, Alexa, or any of the in-house voice search tools you might have in your home, a Virtual Assistant / Business Support professional can help support you remotely with day-to-day tasks like administration, bookkeeping, diary and email management, marketing (including email marketing and digital marketing), website design and maintenance, etc. With just a few hours a week, a Virtual Assistant can assist you to work more productively and efficiently than ever before, freeing up valuable time so that you can work IN your business and focus on those tasks where you add most value in your business.
A VA can be a lifesaver for small business owners who are trying to do it all. By taking on some of the tasks that you don't have time for, or that you're not particularly good at, a VA can help you to focus your time and energy on the things that you're great at and that will help your business. Hate chasing customers for payment after you've sent your invoices out? Why not get support with that? Struggle to find exciting and engaging content to share on social media? There's help out there for that! If a large proportion of your free time is spent working ON your business, and you're not spending much time working IN it, or you're lacking in time, energy and focus because you're distracted by trying to keep on top of all those back office tasks, this could be costing you in lost revenue.*
The Benefits ...
There are many benefits to working with a Virtual Assistant, but the biggest ones are that they'll save you time and help you to grow your business. On average, we add between 40 and 60% revenue to our clients' bottom lines. So if you're feeling overwhelmed, or you're just not able to focus on the things that matter, then it might be time to consider hiring some support. By taking on your admin / back office tasks, a Business Support resource can help double - or even triple - the time available for creating new products and services, and improve your work-life balance by making time for recharging, and spending more time with your family.
