Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Virtual Assistant
Updated: May 6
If you own an online business and you’re starting to feel like you could use a little help, hiring a virtual assistant is the best first step you can take in growing your team! Virtual assistants work from their own home office as independent contractors, keeping your overhead costs low. So, what exactly can a VA do for you and your business?
Here are the top three benefits of working with a virtual assistant.
You pour all you have into your business, but the more you do, the more you notice all those loose ends piling up and clutter taking over. If you struggle to keep up with all your documents, commit to your systems, or just keep up with business in general, then you might need a VA that loves all things systems! A VA can help clean up the back end of your business and set up systems and processes to get you organized and help you stay organized! Without the stress of day-to-day operations, you will have more time for strategic and creative ideas.
Did you know that many virtual assistants are experts in a specific area of business? While there are plenty of General VAs, by engaging a VA with a lot of expertise in your least favorite part of your business, you will instantly boost the level of expertise and care being applied to that area.
Is your content calendar lacking? Are you super inconsistent with showing up on social media because you just loathe sitting down and having to crank out piece after piece of content? Well, that’s what a Social Media VA is for! Let your VA create beautiful graphics, write compelling captions, and even schedule it all out using a platform like Planoly or Hootsuite! Not only will this free up your time, but you can rest assured that someone knowledgeable in social media is handling your accounts.
Do techy tasks terrify (or bore) you? A Tech VA will expertly set up automations so your customers feel personally guided by you, build high-converting sites or landing pages, and integrate multiple platforms to free up time! You will be amazed at all of the expertise a Tech VA will bring to your business, making sure it runs a lot smoother.
There are skilled virtual assistants out there for every project and niche. By finding a virtual assistant who is skilled or interested in areas you are not, your business will bring so much more valuable to potential clients.
Time Back Into Your Day
Time is truly our most valuable and limited resource. Is your time better spent behind the scenes in areas other people could take care of, or is it better spent doing what only you can do? Your clients choose to work with you for a reason, so make sure you are giving your best to them. At a certain point in your business growth, you just won't be able to personally take care of all of the moving parts without losing your mind or losing out on time with family and friends. Remember - you do not have to do it all on your own!
Feeling supported in your business means your virtual assistant can handle non-core areas, while you dedicate your time to your zone of genius. The true perk of working with a virtual assistant is gaining time back into your life.
