Hiring Virtual Assistant: Virtual Assistants are experienced administrative professionals who have decided to work for themselves. Often times, Virtual Assistants have worked not only in administrative roles but in marketing, Information Technology (IT), and Real Estate, depending on their credentials and past experience. Using communication technology such as the internet, phone and fax machine to remain in contact, a Virtual Assistant essentially works as a business partner who can be available as often or as little as required, saving you money and valuable time.

Deciding to hire a Virtual Assistant can save you not only money but resources often associated with hiring onsite staff including: taxes, holiday pay, benefits, equipment and office space.

Whether your business has been, or is close to being, launched and requires ‘start up’ assistance, or you find you are running yourself thin by taking on work that can be handled by an assistant; the benefits of hiring a Virtual Assistant, especially a Virtual Assistant who provides full business support, are endless.

Benefits of Hiring a Virtual Assistant

  1. Make Time for Yourself

    When you hire a Virtual Assistant, you create more time to focus on establishing yourself as a business owner and generating revenue. Your business will no longer be running you. A Virtual Assistant will allow you to take the reins and fully run and concentrate on your business and your future.

  2. Cut the Costs

    When you hire a Virtual Assistant, it cuts the costs. You do not pay for benefits, taxes, equipment, location, or software.

  3. Save on Space

    When you hire a Virtual Assistant, there is no need to use up valuable office space and provide expensive equipment. A Virtual Assistant works from a remote office and uses his or her own equipment and software.

  4. An All in One Solution

    Hiring a Virtual Assistant who provides full business support, will help to create even more time for you to focus on the direction of your business. A Virtual Assistant who provides full business support is essentially your ‘invisible’ business partner; developing marketing campaigns, public relations strategies and managing day to day business operations.

  5. Marketing Know-how

    Marketing strategies are quickly expanding to include the use of the internet and social media outlets. A Virtual Assistant, who is aware of and experienced with internet and social media marketing, is one step ahead of the rest! It is difficult to own a thriving business these days without an informative website. And a business present on social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter is opening itself up to new possibilities, providing itself with access to vast amounts of information and generating tons of leads and traffic.

  6. You are Hiring a Professional

    Keep in mind that when you hire a Virtual Assistant, you are hiring an individual who, prior to working for himself or herself, spent years working in the workforce as an Administrative or Executive Assistant. A high-quality Virtual Assistant is usually tech savvy and will have the necessary skills, knowledge and education to provide your business with top quality service.

  7. Increased Productivity

    As a behind-the-scenes partner, your Virtual Assistant will be available to ensure your business runs smoothly. Whether you are on a business trip and require a document emailed or faxed, or require a presentation complete with short notice; your Virtual Assistant will efficiently complete tasks, and enable you to run a productive and prosperous business.
