It’s Time to Hire a Virtual Assistant

Member Blog Feature: by Charlaine from Virtual BizHub


Business Owners start their ventures with bold visions and big plans. However, it’s all too easy to get distracted by the mundane tasks involved in building a business empire. No matter the industry, every company has these critical tasks that can’t be ignored, and ultimately keep entrepreneurs from the work they do best. A virtual assistant is an individual who cleans up your crucial administrative tasks from a remote location.

Virtual Assistants can and often handle everything from answering emails, to database entry, website administration, and even social media. Most are contract or freelance workers who work from home, allowing for complete flexibility in how much or how little of your work you choose to delegate.

Virtual assistants can also help your business by running promotions, managing social media marketing and more. Automating some of these processes can be effective, but the tasks may grow as your business expands. Hiring a VA who has experience and hardworking is essential if you want to work efficiently without diminishing the importance of marketing efforts. The great thing about virtual assistants is that they can do a variety of things depending on the needs of their clients. While you may feel nervous to give up control and tend to be a perfectionist, a VA is trained in offering the professional and thorough service you are used to giving.

Virtual assistants can do anything from document formatting to timelines for product launches, or setting up your events to scheduling your newsletters. VA’s can help with social media efforts like posting and targeted ads too. You won’t have to answer the phone, schedule your appointments, or sort through your inbox anymore; your virtual assistant can answer all of the calls, take messages, alert you of urgent emails, and sort through your inbox. Business grows when you have the time to focus on tasks without disruptions, when you have the time to take on work that will grow your business, and when you have a virtual assistant helping you with the administrative tasks and ensuring they are done with quality and care.
