Entrepreneurs are looking for more avant-garde & supportive ways to increase profits and normally those that are successful, generally have been able to master two things:-

  1. They are strategic in proceeding with their business objectives.
  2. They make full use of the resources available to them in the pursuit of profit and growth and manage to remain positive on the outcome.

As your business grows, so does the pressure of your workload and sometimes it becomes very overwhelming, and you wonder if you will ever get through it on your own.

However after assessing the situation, hiring a full time assistant may not be the better option.

So what would be the better option for you?

Investigate hiring a Virtual Assistant (VA) and experience more than you expected.

A Virtual Assistant is a self employed expert who works remotely and may serve several clients, working on different projects. They work on the brief set down by their client and offer a wide range of affordable services.

Here are a few of the top reasons why you should be hiring a Virtual Assistant today.

  1. DRIVE BUSINESS GROWTHYou can’t do everything on your own, having someone to help you and to collaborate is a powerful tool that can help take your business to another level.
  2. ACCESS TO THE BEST TALENTHiring a VA means that you don’t need to be geographically tied to who you hire and therefore have access to the best talent.
  3. DECREASED OPERATING COSTS– Outsourcing some tasks is the perfect way of saving money for entrepreneurs.  You can scale your operations according to your business needs, this will allow you to manage business variables with ease and manage costs.  A VA will also only bill you for the hours worked, so no need to pay for sick days, annual leave, or benefits.
  4. REDUCE YOUR WORKLOAD AND MORE WORK IN LESS TIME– Alone you can do so little, but together you can do so much. Why try and do it all on your own when you can hire a VA? Important tasks can often be overshadowed by other mundane tasks that you can outsource to a VA. For example e-mail management, data entry, online marketing, transcription, social media monitoring, etc.
  5. FOCUS ON OUR CORE BUSINESS– Define what things you don’t need to do and you can’t do on your own.  Let your VA handle your routine tasks.  They can help you with your personal tasks as well as your administrative tasks.
  6. STRENGTHEN YOUR BRAND– Have your VA post on your social media platforms.  As you know social media requires a lot of time and persistence.  Just think what you can do with your time if you outsource this to a VA?  Maybe explore more business opportunities?
  7. FLEXIBLE WORK ETHICAs VA’s have flexible work schedules, this can fit in with your needs.  And allows you to choose between an hourly or retention package to suit your current work demands and your budget.
  8. CONFIDENTIALITYIt is possible to build trust with your VA just as it would be if you had a full-time personal assistant. As an entrepreneur a VA’s brand is as important to him/her as yours is to you. They will be dedicated to protecting your company’s interests and reputation.
  9. STRENGTHEN YOUR WEAK AREAS A VA may be able to assist you in strengthening your weak areas by filling a skills gap in your business.  Although you think you are a jack of all trades, you can’t be in control of everything all the time.
  10. PROVIDE A QUALITY SERVICEA VA realises the need to deliver service to their clients as their reputation and business success depends on providing a high quality service to their clients.
  11. MORE LEISURE TIME Outsource the mundane task that need to get done and the rest of the core tasks that need your attention can be handled by you. This will free up more time for you to spend with family and friends.

An entrepreneur needs to realise the importance of outsourcing work and making better use of their time. This will allow them to focus on more important productive issues and rise up the business ladder.
