5 Reasons to Hire A Virtual Assistant

Running a business takes more time and resources than one person can handle alone. That’s why I’m here. I do the work you don’t have the time or staff to accomplish.

5 Reasons to Hire A Virtual Assistant

1. Reduce Your Workload

I have way too much time on my hands,” said no business owner ever! As your virtual assistant, I can take on the tedious, time-consuming, or mundane tasks you just don’t have time for. I’m like an invisible “right hand”, taking care of the little things so your time can truly be spent on your top priorities.

 As your virtual assistant, I can take on:

  • Little tasks that pile up because they keep getting bumped to the bottom of the priority list
  • Time-consuming jobs like research or data entry
  • Projects that overwhelm you and never seem to end, like maintaining your online presence
  • Finally getting started on that brochure or slideshow you’ve wanted to put together for ages

See my Services page for more details on how I can help you.

A reduced workload allows you to:

  • Maintain your focus on the big things instead of constant distractions by the little things
  • Increase your productivity by freeing you to work on driving business growth

2. Decrease Costs

Hiring a virtual assistant means you get the benefits of another team member without the costs of providing office space and equipment, payroll taxes, health benefits, coffee breaks, or vacation time. You pay only for the hours or projects you and I have agreed upon.

Hiring me as your virtual assistant could save you over $60,000.00 per year!

I can also give you the flexibility to pay for work as you need it and, in the amount and structure that works best. You’re not tied to the legalities of employing a full- or part-time staff person. Depending on the work you need done, our arrangement can be on an hourly basis or a project basis.

3. Improve Your Online Presence

A business without a website is almost unheard of today. Establishing an online presence is vital to building trust with your customers and authority in your industry. Your online presence is an invaluable part of your entire marketing strategy and can serve as an important method of communicating with your customers. 

But maintaining a website, blog, and social media platforms is time-consuming and requires an increasing amount of skill and training. For most business owners, it’s simply too much to handle alone. As a virtual assistant, part of my job is to help you with this.

4. Scale Your Business with Less Risk

If your volume of work is increasing, that’s exciting! Your business is growing!

It also means you probably need to hire more help. This can be risky, especially in an unstable economy, a start-up company, or a new industry. Hiring me as your virtual assistant gives you the extra help without the added risk. You don’t have to worry about hiring a staff person and being stuck needing to cover payroll even if things slow down again. (Refer to the Cost Comparison table above.)

5. Strengthen Your Business

No matter how passionate, committed, and skilled you are, you simply cannot do everything. At the very least, it’s impossible to do everything and do it all with excellence. As a virtual assistant, my favorite thing is using the skills I’m strong in to strengthen your business in the areas where you might be less strong. Allowing me to do what I do best so you’re free to do what you do best can only strengthen your business overall.
