30 Mar Virtual Assistants: How They Can Help
Virtual Assistants: People who work remotely to provide administrative support
Every business owner knows that running a business doesn’t just involve working on the fun parts, even when the business’ core services started as a personal passion. It also involves time-consuming administrative tasks and other skills that may not be their strengths. Obviously being a business owner means having to do some stuff outside your comfort zone sometimes, but you don’t have to do everything. It may be more time and cost-efficient to hire remote part-time help to do some tasks. Virtual assistants provides remote part-time assistance to business owners and entrepreneurs. That work can be project-based or a set number of hours as part of a monthly retainer. Examples of tasks a virtual assistant can help with include:
- Document design and updating
- Graphic design
- Website building and maintenance
- Building landing pages
- Calendar and email management
- Social media management
- Writing blogs and newsletters
- Video transcription
- Appointment scheduling
- Data entry
Tasks like these are ongoing, time-consuming, and/or require specific technical skills that can take time to acquire. Also they normally are not full-time tasks and not directly related to revenue generation. This means that a business owner probably cannot justify hiring full-time staff. However, if a business owner has the resources to hire part-time help and is finding that there is rarely spend time on their passion projects or the core revenue-generating focus of the business, they might benefit from hiring a virtual assistant.
