7 Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Virtual Assistant

What is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual assistant is a professional who helps remotely run and manage online accounts for business owners to free up their time and make their mundane tasks straightforward and easy. Virtual assistants can offer a wide range of services depending on their skills and expertise.

1. Extension of your business

Hiring a virtual assistant can bring an additional skill set to your business and help to grow your team.

2. Provide flexible alternative to fulfilling administrative demands

Va’s offer flexibility in terms of working hours and the ability to scale up or down based on your business needs. You can adjust the level of support required without the commitments of hiring and firing employees.

Having a great online presence can be an essential lifeblood of a business. VA’s help a lot of businesses that are not online savvy with their many different skills. Sometimes you don’t have time to research the latest programs or gadgets that could help take your business to the next level.

Outsourcing to an expert that has the skills to be able to create a Mailchimp Newsletter or an On Boarding Form which will save you time and have it done right!

By delegating time-consuming tasks to a VA, you can free up your own time to focus on core business activities, strategic planning, or personal priorities.

VA’s save you time so you can focus on other things that require attention.
  • With your family and friends

Qualities you should look for in a great VA

When looking for a VA it's essential to look for certain qualities that can contribute to their effectiveness and success in supporting your business. Here are some key qualities to consider:
  • Strong communication skills - Virtual assistants need excellent communication skills to understand your instructions clearly and ask for clarification when needed.
  • Reliability - A great virtual assistant should be dependable and trustworthy.
  • Adaptability - The ability to adapt to new tasks, technologies, and work environments is crucial for a virtual assistant.
  • Proactive Approach - Look for a virtual assistant who takes the initiative and thinks ahead. They should be proactive in identifying opportunities for improvement, suggesting solutions, and anticipating your needs.

What should I not do when hiring a VA

  • Rush the Hiring Process: Take your time when hiring a virtual assistant. Rushing the process can lead to overlooking important factors or making hasty decisions.
  • Don’t hire them if they don’t align with you
  • Don’t hire a VA just because it’s the trend at the time, everyone’s doing it and it’s not as needed in your business.
  • Don’t say to your VA, “By the time I told you to do it, I could have done it myself”. That is the most annoying thing that a person can say when hiring a VA.
  • Fail to Sign a Contractor Agreement: To protect both parties involved, it's advisable to have a written contract or agreement in place.
