Some light reading for a sunny Friday afternoon. Has Spring sprung at last?
So, why hire a virtual assistant? There are many benefits to hiring a virtual assistant, I have listed my top 5 below. Get reading and, at the end, get thinking about how a virtual assistant could help you and your business.
Consider this, how much is your time worth? Do you bill by the hour? In this day and age, money matters and with rates starting as low as £15 per hour, can you afford not to outsource your admin? All those hours lost to general administration could have been invested in generating income. Do the maths.
Can’t justify a full-time permanent admin assistant? A virtual assistant can provide you with a solution. Hire one by the hour as and when needed. It’s like pay as you go with the benefit of no commitment, no large financial outlay at the outset and one off projects can be dealt with. Hell you can even get a virtual assistant to help you go on holiday (not only could we source and book it for you, but we could manage your inbox whilst you are away sunning yourself!!). Now how does that sound?!
Overheads? No need to worry about tax, insurance, pension, sick pay etc. When you hire a virtual assistant, all these horrible overheads are taken care of as virtual assistants are usually self-employed.
Likewise, no room for a personal assistant in your workplace? No money to buy them a desk/laptop/chair/phone …. Bingo, a virtual assistant comes with all of that included! No moaning about the troublesome air-conditioning or the crap vending machine. Most of us work from home with our own lovely chairs, desks, phones and laptops. Most of us can work from any location. If it’s sunny (yeah right ….) I can work in the garden. If it’s cold, you’ll find this virtual assistant in front of the wood burning stove….. And as I live on the North East coast of England, just 8 miles from Newcastle, then the wood burning stove sees a lot of action .
Finally, you can benefit from the huge skill base offered by some virtual assistants. Many have chosen to take the plunge and set up on their own after years and years in the business (myself included). Not only are we virtual assistants, but we are astute business people. You only need to look at my testimonials page to see my experience.
