Why should you outsource to a Virtual Assistant?

Updated: May 7, 2020

Whatever stage of your business journey you are at right now, chances are you've invested a lot of time, energy and money. Now it's time to start getting serious. You want to land those big clients, you want to get ahead of the competition, be a leader in your industry and get the financial rewards that go with that.

Here's how a Virtual Assistant can help you achieve those goals:

Save time

A Virtual Assistant can help you save time by taking care of all the day to day tasks of running your business and employing faster and simpler working methods.

Save money

Many VAs are highly skilled in a wide variety of business processes and can help you identify cost effective methods to run your business, saving you money where possible.

Save energy

As a business owner your energy is far better spent developing your business and getting ahead of the competition than it is spent dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. A virtual assistant gives you back the freedom to invest your energy in what’s important to you.

Cheaper than hiring an employee

Hiring an employee can be costly. Factor in their hourly rate, insurance, cost of training. Then you have to worry about providing that employee with all the equipment necessary to do their job. Also, you’re paying an employee at times when they may not be actually working – maybe on quiet days or when they are sick.

At first glance a Virtual Assistant’s rates may seem high but when you factor in all the savings you will be making from not having to hire an employee it’s a no brainer!

Your business benefits from a varied skillset

You could spend a lot of money outsourcing to different suppliers for the likes of social media management, newsletter campaigns, credit control, event management etc. These costs all add up. Most Virtual Assistants have years of experience and bring their own skillset to manage all these tasks for you – all in one place – one monthly bill – with complete transparency.

If there is something that your Virtual Assistant isn’t experienced in you can pretty much guarantee they know someone who is. Many Virtual Assistants team up with associates that specialise in different areas providing their clients with access to even more resources.

We’ve got your back

Your Virtual Assistant will be as invested in the success of your business as you are yourself. After all, if you do well they do well. The busier you get, the more support you will need. It’s a win win! They can also be an effective sounding board for you to bounce ideas off and provide feedback.

Increase efficiency

A Virtual Assistant can prioritise your workload for you, organise items that require your attention and they will look after the rest. They can implement systems and procedures that will save you time and increase your productivity.

Excellent ROI

A Virtual Assistant can help you to retain valuable business and drum up repeat business by nurturing your existing and past clients. They can also bring in new business by following up on leads that you might not otherwise have time to and build relationships on your behalf.
