Running a business is no easy task. Big or small, the size of the company has little bearing on the endless duties and responsibilities that come with ensuring the smooth running of the business. When faced with countless seemingly urgent tasks, small jobs such as replying to emails, dealing with customer enquiries, data entry, making bookings, and scheduling meetings can feel burdensome and overwhelming.
Here enters your Superstar VA! (aka the lovely people at Victoria Eve. & Co.)
A good virtual assistant (or VA) can “step in” anytime and immediately ease your workload by carrying out all the little but oh-so-time-consuming tasks that fall by your wayside. On the other hand, an excellent VA can virtually run your business for you (if that’s what you want, of course), freeing up your time and saving you money.
Now, there are many things a virtual assistant could do for you – but what are some of these tasks, I hear you ask?
- Creating presentations
PowerPoints are a powerful tool when it comes to communicating in a business meeting, but presentations can take hours to prepare, so why not outsource it?
- Data entry
Collecting data and entering it into spreadsheets is a tedious but necessary task; a virtual assistant can take the responsibility of updating your database off your hands so you can enjoy some more free time.
- Managing emails
Managing massive volumes of incoming emails can be daunting. Still, a VA can answer emails on your behalf, check promotional messages, and delete spam so you can enjoy a clean inbox without all the work.
- Social media management & content creation
A virtual assistant with these skills can help you increase brand visibility, boost sales, and draw more traffic to your socials or website by engaging with your audience and writing and posting content for you.
- Blog writing
Finding a VA who has experience in your field enables you to outsource the writing for your blog without sacrificing the value and quality of your content.
- Handling your phone calls
A virtual assistant can make or answer calls on behalf of your business. They would make necessary calls, respond to incoming communications and record vital information for you to peruse at your convenience.
7. Updating content on your website
Virtual Assistants are masters of working in the back end. While you focus on the front of your business and doing what you desire to propel your business forward, your VA can ensure your website remains relevant and up-to-date to support your business.
- Preparing invoices
Yet another time-consuming (yet necessary) task you can outsource to a VA that has skills in bookkeeping or finance to ensure all your invoicing is completed clearly and efficiently.
- Research tasks
Conducting online research takes up a lot of valuable time. You can delegate the research work to your VA, who would scour the internet for useful information on your behalf and report it back to you.
- Scheduling meetings & appointments
Similarly to an executive assistant, VAs can aid you by interacting with your contacts and scheduling your time, so you don’t have to.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
