Every entrepreneur knows that additional manpower is needed when scaling your business. Hiring more people would mean additional overhead costs which can cut into your business profits. However, on the other hand, if you want to do everything yourself, you would not only be sacrificing your health and your sanity, but your precious time as well.
So what is the best option for you? TWO words — VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS.
What are Virtual Assistants?
Simply put, they are entrepreneurs and skilled workers who work remotely. With specific skill sets, they can serve multiple clients and work on different tasks. They offer a wide range of services and provide quality services.
So why do you need to hire Virtual Assistants?
1 – They can Drive Business Growth
Admit it, you are not a superhero! Everyone needs a helping hand and it is essential to the growth of your business. The key is to hire a talented VA who understands your business ethics and policies and most of all who are easy to work with. Your business can flourish with shared interests and strategic partnerships, so allow your VAs to share their ideas. After all, they’re experts in their fields, so you will eventually see a substantial growth in your business.
2 – They Reduce Labor Costs
Getting some tasks outsourced is a perfect way to save costs for entrepreneurs. So be wise as far as your money is concerned and hire a VA. Since VAs work remotely, you can save office expenses like phones, computers, internet and office rentals.
And the best part is, VAs can work on a part-time or a full-time basis and bill you only for the hours they work. So depending on your current need of business support, you can just hire them for a certain amount of hours to fit your budget. And one more thing, you don’t even have to pay for any employee benefits like the regular employees.
3 – They Reduce your Workload
As a business owner, your time is very valuable and you usually get jam-packed with loads of time-wasting tasks that you want to get rid of. True?
Virtual Assistants are experts who multi-task and can work on different crucial tasks and finish them within the given time frame. They can help you in Market Research, Data Entry, Email Management, Online Marketing, Scheduling, Call Answering, Web Development, Content Writing, Transcription and a whole lot more. Name it, they can do it! They not only reduce your work-related stress but also keep the business running smoothly and organized.
4 – They can Offer After-Hours Support
In the busy business world that we live in, being available to work for 8-10 hours a day is not enough. So, how can you make your business available 24/7? Hire VAs from a different timezone and they’ll surely be there to deal with your customers even on official holidays.
It would be best to work with Virtual Assistant Agencies who have multiple team members who can provide back-up staff who will be there to help out in times of emergency.
5 – You can Have More Time to Market Your Business
Let’s face it, we all know that your business will never grow if you don’t spend time marketing it. With all the menial tasks that your business needs to be done, you would barely have time to market your business or find leads and clients to work with. Don’t be strapped down to your desk doing all these tasks. Hire a virtual assistant and free your hours for those important business meetings and close those deals!
6 – You will Have More Time to Enjoy your Success
The last on our list is very important for business owners because, who doesn’t love enjoying leisure time?
Hiring VAs allows you more time to enjoy your success. By offloading your mundane tasks, your virtual assistants can add more productive hours to your day while you take your rest or go on vacation. This means more time with family and friends and get to live a normal life with them. Basically what you’ll be able to get most importantly is work-life balance. You deserve to enjoy the time and money your business brings.
Nowadays, business owners are realizing the importance of delegation. As what Richard Branson said, “If you really want to grow as an entrepreneur, you’ve got to learn to delegate”. Don’t try to do everything yourself, because you can’t.
