Top Tips for Delegating

Delegating tasks to your Virtual Assistant for the first time can be daunting. You’ll be quizzing yourself with ‘what should I give them?’ or ‘what happens if they don’t know what to do?’ this is a perfectly normal line of questioning, but you needn’t worry when working with our virtual team. Our PA’s are trained to the highest level, so we can deal with any task that you may throw at us.

The best way to start the delegation process is to make a list of what you do over the period of a week; this allows you to pin-point exactly how you spend your time and in turn will give you a better idea of which tasks to pass on.

The easiest way to decide what to assign to your virtual PA is by following these simple points:

  • Are there any tasks that don’t generate income but are extremely time-consuming?
  • There are probably a number of errands that you don’t enjoy doing, but are the nuts and bolts of your business. So if possible you may want to delegate these to your virtual assistant.
  • It may also be worth considering the cost of certain duties, if a task can be completed by your virtual PA for half the price that you would usually charge a customer, then you should contemplate delegating those types of jobs.
  • Our virtual PA’s may have knowledge in areas where you don’t particularly excel and so it may be of interest to you to pass on those tasks.

If you are still unsure about how your virtual PA is coping then we are always happy to keep in close contact with you, we fully understand how it may feel to relinquish some control over a business that you took so long to build up.
