What would you do if you had an extra day in your week? I’m guessing much more of what you enjoy and lots less of what you don’t. Well, if you hire a VA (Virtual Assistant) that is exactly what can happen.
We all know time is money so by hiring a Virtual Assistant you can delegate the mundane tasks to someone else that is qualified so you can focus on what really matters, growing your business.
A Harvard Business Review did a 3 year study that shows handing off day to day tasks can save you up to one fifth of your time each day. That adds up to one full day a week. There you have it, you have gained an extra day! Think of all you could do with that additional time.
Below are a few ways in which a Virtual Assistant can save you time and money. To learn more about each of these please check out my Services page.
How often do you get sucked into negative emails? You know the type I’m talking about. The constructive criticism that is supposed to be “helpful.” A VA can weed those out for you and just send on the emails that are actually helpful. Replying to common customer questions, flagging important messages that you need to reply to, deleting spam and tagging and archiving emails are just a few more of the many benefits to hiring a VA to manage your email for you. This is what I love to do and would be honored to have you consider trusting me with your email.
A Virtual Assistant is much cheaper to hire than a traditional assistant and can do pretty much everything an in-person assistant can do. Maybe not bring you coffee, but then again, lots of places deliver so…
Why hiring a Virtual Assistant is a wise investment.
- No office space, furniture or equipment to purchase
- VAs are often looking for part-time work
- They want you to succeed (in turn they succeed)
- No office supply budget needed
- Don’t have to pay benefits
- Save on insurance
- Word done outside traditional work hours
- Less office drama (don’t discount the importance of this one!)
As a small business owner often you are expected to be the chief cook and bottle washer. You are in charge of all that matters, both important and menial. Hiring a VA can relieve you of those tiresome tasks and free up your time for more important projects doing what you and only you can do.
Your VA can help you streamline processes and be more efficient which in turn will help your business grow.
In short a qualified VA is an invaluable investment in your business.
