Virtual assistants are gaining traction as a valuable tool for businesses, particularly small ones. Most businesses could benefit from hiring a virtual assistant some of the time, whether it is bookkeeping, hiring new employees or helping with your social media marketing.
Here are four reasons why Virtual PA UK, personal assistant Essex, believes business owners can benefit from using a virtual assistant.
Contrary to popular belief, hiring a virtual assistant doesn’t mean paying someone to answer phones. Virtual assistants can complete a variety of tasks. If your business is planning an upcoming event, you can hire a virtual PA that specialises in event management. You can even ask them to help increase your promotion efforts on social media by scheduling and boosting business-related posts while you create product posts that you like.
More ‘me’ time
When it comes to running your own business, time is money. It’s easy to get bogged down with smaller, tedious tasks rather than focusing on the important aspects of your business. Hiring a virtual PA will not only allow you to balance your personal and work life, but to spend more time on the parts of your business that you enjoy and generate more income in the long run.
Did you know that employees in a salaried position are only productive for three hours a day? Unlike a tradition team member, a virtual assistants time is always accounted for. That way, you know every penny you are spending is going into productive hours.
Access to a range of expertise
Many Virtual Assistants have had long, varied careers, possessing expertise that wouldn’t be easy to find anywhere else. Hiring a virtual assistant from Virtual PA UK means choosing from a ready-made pool of talent that you can dip into as and when you want. Define the expertise you want, and you will find the right personal assistant who fits the bill.
