Hiring and leveraging virtual assistants provide a number of benefits to different businesses.
Any business (whether small, medium, or large) can hire virtual assistants to help them accomplish specific daily routine tasks. When done right, virtual assistants can help you:
- Monitor and work on Bookkeeping Tasks
- Check and Manage Your Email Inbox
- Manage Your Email Listing (for Newsletters, Sales Emails, etc.)
- Market Your Business on social media
- Manage Your social media and Monitor its Performance (i.e., creating insight reports for online growth vs. competitors)
- Handle customer service and customer support (inbound and outbound calls, chat support, and email support)
- Handle Administrative and Back-Office tasks
While it is true that virtual assistants can help you with such tasks, it is important to know the significant impact of hiring and leveraging virtual assistants.
Here are 4 reasons why you need to hire and leverage professional virtual assistants.
1. Savings on Time
Time is a crucial factor for most of us, especially if we’re business owners.
However, in most businesses, business owners do most of the work such as making and taking calls, managing the business’s finances, etc.
If you’re a business owner, you wouldn’t want to do tedious repetitive tasks on your own, right? You would instead focus on more important things such as coming up with effective business strategies for growth.
By hiring and leveraging virtual assistants, you can save at least 30% of your time. This “EXTRA” free time can now be refocused on things that need more attention. You can also use those extra hours at your own expense such as spending time with your loved ones, going on a holiday, etc.
2. Savings on Overhead Costs
It costs a lot to hire an in-house employee. When you hire someone to work at the office, you will be spending on advertising a job post, equipment, onboarding, salaries, etc.
On the other hand, when you hire and leverage a virtual assistant, you don’t have to spend much during the hiring process. On top of that, you can save on overhead costs because your VA will be working remotely. This means that your VA will have its own equipment to work with.
Also, in some cases, you will only have to pay your virtual assistant depending on the tasks you will give them. It could be project-based, commission-based, hourly, or full-time. Amazing, right?
3. Increased Productivity and Efficiency
When you do most of those repetitive tasks every day, you lose track of what’s more important (i.e., business growth, making more connections, etc.). You also become less productive and your business less efficient.
Remember, productivity and efficiency are two stepping stones toward business growth. Hiring and leveraging virtual assistants grants you not only more time but also increases the productivity and efficiency of your business. With professional virtual assistants doing most of the leg work for you, you can achieve and accomplish more by doing less.
4. Transparency and Accountability
Now that you know how virtual assistants can help you save time and cut costs while increasing your productivity and efficiency, you might be asking, “How will I know if my VA will actually work with minimum supervision?” A lot of business owners would hesitate to hire a virtual assistant because they don’t want to take such a risk.
But here’s an amazing fact about hiring and leveraging virtual assistants – you can build a sense of accountability between yourself and your VA. You can monitor their progress in a time-efficient way with systems that allow you to do so. When you know that your VA is able to perform and deliver according to your standards, there is nothing for you to be worried about.
A. Virtual assistants do most of the leg work for you by handling tedious daily tasks for you.
B. You save time for yourself when you hire and leverage virtual assistants.
C. You save on overhead costs when hiring a virtual assistant VS. hiring an in-house employee.
D. Hiring and leveraging virtual assistants increases productivity and efficiency for your business.
E. You build a sense of accountability when working with virtual assistants to guarantee exceptional results.
