Are you a small business owner with not enough hours in your day? There is a solution to give you back your time.
For all the secretarial services you require without needing a full time assistant to employ a full time secretary. A virtual assistant is able to manage many aspects of your business from ‘one off” projects, peak periods or during employee absence. By outsourcing your administration, you only pay for the time you use – no holiday pay, no superannuation costs, no babysitting the office time, so it just simply makes sense if you are a solo operator or wanting more efficiency in your business.
After a day filled with meetings, writing reports or quotations, liaising with suppliers, following up on clients, answering emails and the rest of core tasks of your day, why should you then be faced with administration tasks that could be handled more efficiently by an expert and free up your time. You possibly already outsource your IT, bookkeeping, accountancy and more so outsourcing to a virtual assistant all the administration and marketing that you don’t need to control yourself, will enable you to focus on your core skills.
Here’s a great article about the pro’s and con’s of outsourcing and what may work best for your business model. In general, the rule has been for any task that does not have a direct influence on your revenue, it is possible to outsource. If you are one that likes to be in the control seat on absolutely everything, then it may not work for you; through micro-managing your business, you could be restricting the growth of your business.
