Many small businesses don’t have the luxury of being able to hire a staff of employees. However, that doesn’t mean they must manage their business alone.

By outsourcing to a virtual assistant (often referred to as a VA), they can have specialized help when they need it and for a fraction of the cost of hiring full-time employees.

 

Working With A Virtual Assistant Means

Smaller Learning Curves. While understanding the basic concepts are great, there’s simply no need to learn graphic design, marketing, programming, website creation, etc. Hiring assistants who specialize in these areas will save you loads of time and frustration.

Balanced Home and Business Life. Business is important, but so is spending time with family and friends.  Maintaining a healthy balance reduces stress, increases productivity and ensures everyone is happy.

Increased Productivity & Profits. Knowing your assistant is taking care of the time-consuming tasks allows you to stay focused on more profit-producing business activities.

Signs That You Need a Virtual Assistant

  • You Feel Overwhelmed

    Are you working long hours in order to get things done? Maybe you feel paralyzed by the long list of tasks you need to complete. Feeling overwhelmed at times is natural, but if it happens often, it’s time to take action and hire an assistant.

  • You dislike the work.

    Everyone is good at something, but nobody is good at everything. If you have tasks that you simply dread doing, perhaps you always put them off until the last minute; consider hiring an assistant to do them for you.

  • It takes you forever to….

    If you burn up three hours trying to draft your weekly newsletter because you struggle with the formatting, stop! It is not worth it when you can outsource the task.

  • You don’t know how to do something.

    One great thing about virtual assistants is that many have knowledge in a lot of areas. If you've been doing without something because you can't do it yourself, hiring it out may be the answer.

  • Tasks are getting pushed aside.

    If emails and phone calls are going unanswered, then your customer service may be suffering. Poor customer service can lead to lost sales. Regardless of the task, if you do not have time to do it, hire someone to take care of it for you.

  • The family is unhappy.

    Take your queues from family and friends. When family members start migrating to your office, rather than you to the family room, chances are, you’re working too much.

  • You are tired of doing it alone.

    It’s tough operating a one-person business. You have to be the creative thinker, implementer, follow-up person and more. While doing everything is great for the ego, it’s not always great for business. When you tire of doing it alone, call a VA. Remember, even superheroes call in reinforcements when they need it.

G.P., Senior Vice President

As a commercial real estate broker, I do not have a lot of time available to enhance my company's business through marketing personally. Michelle Downing of Virtually Aligned Business Services has saved the day. I met with her, and she listened to my requirements for a flier to send to my clients. The very next day, I received three drafts in color to peruse, and with a few tweaks, she was able to finalize them for me. Michelle is an incredibly bright lady and her involvement in my business promotion has proven successful for my business. Her reaction time was unbelievable compared to other marketers. Her ideas were fresh, and as a small business owner, she understood the importance of time. I will continue to use her in the future and would recommend her to anyone.
