If you run a business, then you know that your main priority is growth. But it can become overwhelming when you not only have to run a business but also take care of the administrative tasks. These tasks can take up most of your time and create sleepless nights for you.
With today’s technology, many business professionals are hiring Virtual Assistants to take over the administrative support of the business. Giving the owner ample time to take care of the most important part; the bottom line.
But how do you know if a Virtual Assistant is right for you? Here are a few tips:
1. Find out which tasks you need the most help with, the tasks that you don’t like or the ones that are taking most of your time and delegate those tasks to a Virtual Assistant. This will not only save you money due to no overhead, equipment, or supplies but it will also save you time. And time is the most valuable commodity to every business professional.
2. Collaborate with your Virtual Assistant on which online tools will work for you to be more efficient and effective in your business. Tools such as Hootsuite to schedule your social media posts or Smartsheet to create templates and forms for business purposes and correspondence to your clients. The great part is that most VA’s already utilize most of these tools in their own business so you won’t have to waste time in training.
3. Figure out how many hours you would need your VA. The great part of working with a VA is that you only use them for the time you need them. This creates longer business relationships and a great team.
4. Finally, take a break and get some Zzzzz.
Here’s to great collaboration!
