Why work with a VA?
Do you ever feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to keep up with your business? If so, you might benefit from hiring a virtual assistant (VA). With the help of a VA, you’ll have the extra time to focus on the tasks that can really help to make your business a success.
Here are some top reasons why hiring a VA could be the best move you make!
You don’t have enough time
Running a business is challenging. With the seemingly never-ending to-do list and never enough time to keep up, it can be overwhelming. This is where a VA can help.
VAs are professionals who provide a wide range of administrative, operational, creative and technical services online. Whether you need help with social media marketing, streamlining processes, automating elements of the business, copywriting, web design or email and diary management, one of the biggest benefits of hiring a VA is that they can free up your valuable time so you can focus on the things that only you can do.
You need technical support
When it comes to running a business, there is no denying that there are a lot of technical aspects to consider. From setting up CRMs to updating websites, handling databases to implementing new software the list is seemingly endless. This is why so many businesses turn to a VA to lend a helping hand.
With a VA, you can ensure that all the technical facets of your business are taken care of with efficiency and expertise. VAs have the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out complex tasks quickly and accurately. This means that you don’t have to worry about learning how to do everything yourself or hiring an expensive IT team (unless you really need one in which case a VA can manage that too – from selecting the providers to managing their workload), as your VA will handle everything for you.
You spend too much time on mundane tasks
Every business has mundane, yet necessary, tasks that need to be performed. If these are taking up so much of your time that you can’t focus on things that drive your business forward, you might consider having a VA take care them (and write a Standard Operating Procedure about how they did it too!). You get peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of and is being handled efficiently, while you focus your attention on other areas.
You want to save time and money
As a business owner, time and money are often in short supply. Having a VA working as part of your team allows you to delegate tasks, shift your overwhelm and give you time to focus on growing and developing your business. Understanding and utilising their skills and knowledge might even enable you to delegate more than you first thought!
VAs are typically hired on an hourly or project basis, so it is more cost effective than bringing in permanent staff. You only pay for the hours they work, so there’s no worry about additional overheads like payroll costs, holiday pay or insurance contributions. Even better, you don’t have to sacrifice the quality of output for cost savings. VAs are highly trained professionals with experience and expertise in many areas who can provide you with top-notch services.
You want to grow your business
A VA is an invaluable asset when it comes to growing your business. They understand your business needs and can provide a professional yet personalised service. VAs can provide feedback and advice based on their own experience (of running a business and helping you with yours) as well as the expertise in their chosen fields. Your VAs external perspective combined with their knowledge in certain areas of your business can be very useful when it comes to making informed decisions about the future growth of the company.
