As virtual assistants we are continuously asked, "what are the benefits of having a VA?" "How can you help and support remotely?"
If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that working remotely is far more achievable than ever imagined and the benefits would be the same as if we were sitting in an office next to you.
At Positive VA Solutions, we pride ourselves on having an extensive skill set that can support all types of businesses. Whether it be calendar and diary management, audio dictation, market research, fleet management and Social Media. We have the skills and capabilities to support businesses with the menial tasks that consume time away from focusing what's really important to you and that is your business.
Here are our top benefits of hiring a virtual assistant:
Time: Time is invaluable, there never seems to be enough of it and you should be spending those hours doing what you love to do, not what you have to do to keep the paperwork moving. That's why it's mission-critical to hire someone to whom you can delegate those tasks.
Administrative Tasks: From calendar management, to emails and answering phones, a Virtual Assistant’s scope of work can almost vary as much as the industries that hire them, for instance, marketing, web design, bookkeeping, and other services. A Virtual Assistant empowers you to delegate what you can’t keep managing yourself no matter what industry you’re in.
Costs: Hiring a virtual assistant is far more cost effective than a full time employee. No need to consider tax and NI contributions, no more holiday or sick leave pay. You only pay for the time spent working. A 2007 survey by Salary.com found that 1.7 hours of an 8.5 hour day were classed by employers as wasted time.
Customer Service: We all require the highest level of customer service don't we? As a VA, we ensure an email is never missed, client queries and complaints are responded to expeditiously.
Improve Processes, Procedures & Services: As a virtual assistant, we can take the time to streamline your operation, ensuring processes and procedures are working effectively for your business. We can also monitor market trends, listen to conversations on social media relating to your industry and keep a watchful eye on competitors. Keeping you one step head.
Peace of Mind: Having someone to whom you can have complete faith to delegate tasks to is priceless! As we’ve mentioned before, multitasking is often far less effective and less efficient than monotasking. A Virtual Assistant can help you focus on the important things.
