It’s four o’clock in the afternoon, and you have just spent 12 hours at your desk, with no end in sight. Yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s work are all piling up on your desk. You need another set of hands. We all know the feeling, and all business owners have been where you’re at. With a virtual assistant, support is just a click away.
Known as an administrative assistant, virtual assistants work from their home office and accomplish all of the same tasks that an administrative, or personal, assistant does. This involves everything from electronic filing and organizing of your files to creating a course of action that, if followed, can bring your business back to a more organized and productive state.
Is your office cluttered with no clear plan of action in place? This is where we can step in and help you get back on track. This can be achieved through organizing all of your tasks into different categories and checking that each category is being cared for on time and to completion. Another method involves organizing all of the programs you have at your disposal to see where they can synergistically work together to get a job done. What’s important is that you have a plan and stick to it.
Specifically, what can a virtual assistant do for your business?
- Create an e-book for your business
- Real Estate support services
- Desktop publishing
- Create PowerPoint presentations
- Organize your data into an Excel spreadsheet
- Write and publish your blogs
- Social media management
- Contact management
- Clean up your website
- Internet research
- Any task that an on-site assistant does for your business
Where do we get all of this work done? This is where it gets good. We get all of our work done from our own home office. There is no need to make room for us in your office or to purchase office furniture, equipment, or work space. As small business owners, we pay for all of these expenses ourselves.
It gets better, though. There is no need to pay for taxes, worker’s compensation insurance, or payroll tax expenses that are associated with an employee. There are more savings to be had when using our services. These include employee benefits, which can eat away at your profits, such as medical, dental, and vision care benefits. When added to your operating costs, these costs considerably affect your bottom line. Again, there is no need to pay these benefits when working with a virtual assistant. We’re just a click away.
Are vacation time, sick time, and breaks costing your small business more than you can afford? With us, you will only pay for the time it takes to complete a task. There is no need to pay us for government mandated employee breaks. We are only paid when we work, and time tracking software makes it easy to offer accountability to our clients who ask for such services.
Support is just a click away. If you have any questions regarding how a virtual assistant might help your business to be more productive, please contact us. We would love to help.
