Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Virtual Assistant
So you’re an entrepreneur looking to maximize your time. You’re also a modern, hands on approach type of business owner, who usually doesn’t opt to have your employees handle some areas of operation. But have you considered that sometimes, you have too much on your plate?
Stress is a real thing, and it may affect more than your mind. You need to be in tiptop shape in order to run your business properly, and if you need someone to help you with the upkeep, then it’s worth looking into hiring a Virtual Assistant.
What’s a Virtual Assistant, you ask? They’re not much different from the usual support staff you’d have on your payroll, except they either work from a remote office or using their own resources at home. Your typical virtual assistant is an administrative whiz, drawing from their experiences in the business they’ve worked in before, from IT all the way to marketing, to help you run your business more smoothly.
The best part is, they’re one call or instant message away, and hiring one may be one of the best decisions you’ve made for your business so far. Need more proof? Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a Virtual Assistant ASAP.
#1 No Employee Costs
Virtual assistants are on call, and usually only charge for the hours they work for you. Unlike an employee that you hire, you don’t need to consider the cost of taxes, employee benefits, insurance, or an extensive training program. VA’s come as a complete package and you can call on them only when you need them—if it’s 2 or 20 hours in a week.
#2 A Space Saver
A virtual assistant doesn’t require their own space in your office. You won’t need to set up another computer for them, you won’t need to provide them with any sort of equipment, and you won’t have one more person lining up at the water cooler.
#3 Maximized Productivity
Do you know of an employee that makes full use of your typical 8-hour work day? Chances are, your workforce isn’t making the most of the time that they’re being paid for. There’s breaks, obligatory office chatter, time waiting for a meeting room to fill up—the list goes on. The Virtual Assistant poses no such conundrum. They clock in, do the job you’ve assigned, and as soon as they finish, are out of your hands. No time wasted.
#4 The Up-to-date Professional
Social media marketing, Google analytics, Search Engine Optimization—who has time for all these strategies that make up the world of internet business today? Virtual Assistants, that’s who. They’re an all in one solution to generating leads and traffic in the digital age, and they’ll leverage all their online savvy for the benefit of your business.
#5 More “Me” Time
Don’t stress yourself out thinking of those sleepless nights you’ll have doing the bookkeeping, accounting, and encoding that a Virtual Assistant can now handle for you. With your backstage tasks being taken care of, you’re now free to focus on the little things about your business to improve revenue. Even better, you can take those half days you’ve always wanted and hit the golf course.
