How a Personal Assistant Can Benefit Your Business

Naturally, if you’re the owner of a small business, you’re going to want to watch it grow and flourish. You’ve passed the initial start-up phase, it’s now time to enter the more challenging era of: “How do I grow my business?” However, it’s unlikely that you’re going to be able to take big financial risks, so you’re going to need to take a more strategic approach, such as hiring a virtual personal assistant.

Money Saving

Many start-ups decide to hire a virtual assistant to help with the cost of running a business as they cost considerably less compared to a full-time employee because you, as the business owner, do not have to pay employee benefits.

It is thought to be estimated that by hiring a virtual assistant, you can save as much as 40% in business expenses. This is because virtual PA’s are standalone which means you don’t have to allocate expenses or pay for their power or rent.

By hiring a personal assistant, you can reinvest the money that would be spent on a full-time employee back into the business, increasing your brand exposure.


One of the major benefits of hiring a virtual PA is the flexibility they offer to you. If you’re in the midst of trying to grow your business, a virtual assistant can be a great option during the interim.

  • Virtual personal assistants do not have a set work schedule; therefore, you can assign them to tasks that require more focus.
  • You do not have to spend money and time training your virtual PA as they already have the skills required.
  • You can easily terminate and hire virtual assistants as they work on a contractual basis.

Delegate admin

Administration tasks can be mundane to everyone, especially if you want to focus on attracting and attaining clients. Fortunately, you’re able to delegate all non-essential tasks to your personal assistant. This can include bookkeeping, call answering and calendar management.
