As a small business owner, a Virtual Assistant (VA) can help make your life a whole lot easier! VA’s offer professional administrative, technical and/or creative assistance from a remote location. We are here to help small business owners and solopreneurs like you, with those tiresome tasks that take you away from doing the work you love.
There Ain’t Much We Can’t Do
Services offered depend on the Virtual Assistant and their experience. Tasks vary from compiling spreadsheets to writing blog posts. Many VA’s offer services along the lines of:
- Professional Administrative Services such as document creation, formatting, email management, database entry and maintenance;
- Website Management including the set up of WordPress sites, domain registration and blog posting;
- Social Media Set-up and Management such set-up and upkeep of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest;
- Media and Communications for your business including email marketing and content writing.
Virtual Assistant’s like myself are often multi-skilled and LOVE to learn, so never hesitate to enquire about a task that isn’t on our list! It’s likely that we’ll give it a go. If a task is a little beyond our knowledge base then we will let you know. We usually have a large network of freelancing friends so it’s likely we can find someone to help you with what you need.
Why Hire a Virtual Assistant?
The cost of hiring a full-time employee can be a big hit to the budget of a solopreneur, especially if you don’t quite need a full-time or even part-time person. Hiring a Virtual Assistant is the perfect solution as VA’s have numerous clients and are usually paid by the hour or on a project basis. This means that you don’t have to commit to paying a full-time salary. You can hire a Virtual Assistant as and when you need them. Perfect!
When Will I Know That I Need a VA?
You’ll know it’s time to hire a Virtual Assistant when thoughts such as these start to run in your head:
“Keeping my Facebook page up-to-date is a full-time job!”
“What do you mean I need SnapChat for my business? Isn’t that just for teenagers?”
“What? Pinterest drives more sales to my website that Facebook? Oh god, I don’t have time to create a Pinterest account!”
“If there is someone out there who ACTUALLY enjoys formatting documents then send them to me now!!!”
If any one of these thoughts has cycled through your mind then it sounds like you could benefit from a Virtual Assistant.
