Why you should outsource to a virtual assistant

What is a Virtual Assistant?

If you don’t have a large enough team or someone with your preferred skill set to delegate to, consider hiring a VA. You can hire a virtual assistant to perform general online office tasks, such as managing calendars and answering emails.

Many virtual assistants specialize in a particular area or have extensive knowledge of a specific program or software. They are helpful for businesses that need someone to perform a particular task occasionally but don’t need to hire a full- or part-time employee.

Virtual assistants can help your business in so many ways. Every virtual assistant specialized in something different. I specialize in content creation, blog management, podcast show notes, and creating social media graphics. As you look for a VA to help you and your business, consider what areas you need support in the most.

Here is a list of ideas of tasks you can hand over to a VA:

  • Answering Customer Service Emails /Tickets / Chat Support
  • Calendar Management
  • Appointment Scheduling
  • Travel Arrangement and Planning
  • Blog Publishing Management
  • Moderating Blog Comments
  • Creating graphics

Why Should You Outsource to a Virtual Assistant?

Save time

A Virtual Assistant can help you save time by taking care of all the day-to-day tasks of running your business. If there is a task you don’t prefer doing or that takes up way too much of your time, this is the perfect task to outsource to a virtual assistant.  By outsourcing, you give yourself the freedom to invest your time and energy in what’s important to you.

Save money

By outsourcing work, you can cut down costs in many ways. You won’t have to worry about having to pay employee benefits such as healthcare or vacation days. It has been shown that, on average, a business can save about 60% in operational costs with an outsourced individual. At first glance, a Virtual Assistant’s rates may seem high, but when you factor in all the savings you will be making from not having to hire an employee, it’s a no-brainer! 

Increased efficiency

A Virtual Assistant can help you prioritize your workload by organizing and implementing systems to help you manage your business. Hiring a VA to automate processes can save time and increase your productivity while they handle the rest.  

Increased Visibility

A lot of virtual assistants offer a service that can help grow your business’s visibility. If your business needs help with ongoing tasks like social media management, blog writing, website updates, email marketing, hire a VA who excels in those areas. Wouldn’t it be nice not to spend hours looking at your screen trying to come up with captions and find eye-catching photos?
