I know the world is becoming much more familiar with Virtual Assistants, but there are still a great many people who have no idea what a Virtual Assistant is or does.
I can hardly keep track of the strange looks I get when I tell people what I do, especially the “virtual” part.
Most people seem to relate that to “almost” being an assistant or something along those lines.
So, to be clear, a Virtual Assistant works virtually – they don’t virtually work.
Yes, it is a real job and yes, I do real work.
All those tasks you would normally hire an Administrative Assistant for, I perform, not in your office but instead in mine.
Why would you want to hire someone who works virtually? Well, there are many great reasons.
Below are some examples:
- You need administrative help, but only for a few hours here and there
- You don’t have an office that you run your business out of
- You don’t want to hire HR staff or bookkeeping staff to have to pay an administrative assistant
- You don’t want the hassle of remitting taxes etc to CRA
- You don’t want the risk of hiring someone and they don’t work out
- You don’t want to have to spend the time trying to hire someone; place ads, review resumes, contact references, interview potential candidates
- You don’t want to have to worry about paying for the time someone is not actually working I.E.- vacation time, sick days, lunch/coffee breaks, issues with kids, surfing the internet
- You don’t have the time to train someone
- You don’t want to have to pay for benefits
These are just some of the reasons hiring a Virtual Assistant makes sense to many small business owners. Little to no risk, no overhead, and you get the services you pay for without having to pay for all the extra costs associated with having an employee.
There is no task too big or too small. Want to know more about what I do?
Seems simple enough right? It is!
So, if you are ready to hand over some of that stuff that is weighing you down and keeping you from doing what you really enjoy in your business – reach out!
How does “Consider it done!” sound to you?
