Despite quite a few articles out there on this subject including a well read one I did on ‘4 ways a V.A can make your business pay’ there are still a number of people who ask what exactly is a V.A? …and why should I use one? How will my business benefit from it?
That’s exactly why I’ve titled this one ‘a few great reasons to outsource a V.A.’ firstly a V.A is an abbreviation for Virtual Assistant. In days gone by Executives tended to have a P.A or personal Assistant and of course many still do. The difference with a V.A is that the V.A is essentially your P.A, but outsourced as a service.
The reasons to do this are numerous and here are just a few of them:
Many smaller businesses don’t have the money to hire permanent staff and nowadays even those who do, are realising that hiring permanent staff can be a costly headache. After all why hire someone who may spend a large part of their day not actually working at what you want them to, when you can outsource to a Virtual Assistant for the specific tasks you want done and pay only for those?
So if you can’t afford to hire a P.A or for the reasons stated above don’t really want to, then you are probably facing a shortage of time situation. There are a thousand of those irritating smaller jobs like answering e-mail, keeping a diary, setting up meetings and in the case of a work from home Mom, a million other things to do whilst trying to run a business. It simply makes sense to outsource some of these tasks to an ‘out of your hair, but always there’ V.A!
Time is money! If you have even a reasonably profitable business, chances are your time is worth way more than what you’ll pay a good V.A to handle menial tasks for you. Don’t underestimate what they can do either – my aforementioned article on ‘4 ways a V.A can make your business pay’ goes into ways that I as an excellent networker, can generate business for you too!
