Most owners and entrepreneurs of tiny businesses have regarded whether to employ extra assistance or not. Whether you’re just starting out, searching for expansion, or just having to become more structured and effective, delegating common administrative duties is a typical issue.
Knowing you need assistance is the simple component, but it’s a little bit more daunting to decide how to get that assistance.
- Is it better to employ a Virtual Assistant in-house?
- Is a cost-effective VA?
- What are the real benefits of hiring a Virtual Assistant for the business and the user?
1.) Hiring a virtual assistant actually saves you money
Your time is important, and literally we mean that. For example, if you make $100 an hour and use your own time to do small repetitive tasks instead of paying someone else $25 an hour to do them, you lose money.
You should spend your time on the significant job that moves your company forward and that nobody else can do. A personal assistant’s average wage is $39 K per year, but using a Virtual Assistant service is only about $4 to $16 K per year, which is a significant savings! And, once you have offloaded those time-consuming tasks to your VA, the potential increase in productivity and sales can have a meaningful impact on your business and budget.
2.) Hiring A Virtual Assistant Saves You Time
You only have so many hours in a day, are you spending them on the most productive assignments, or are endless emails and scheduling eating up your time?
The Harvard Business Review conducted a 3-year survey that demonstrates you can save up to one-fifth of your productive time per day by delegating repetitive, less productive assignments. That makes it a week-long saving of a complete working day. What would you do every week with an additional day?
You could make more sales or connect with more individuals using that time. Or perhaps by having time for private objectives such as going to the gym or spending time with family and friends, you could give more equilibrium to your timetable.
3.) Hiring a Virtual Assistant is Less Hassle Than Hiring In-House
Sometimes in your department, you need to employ someone to work. But if you don’t need physical duties such as altering the printer toner or signing for UPS delivery, it may be simpler to go with a Virtual Assistant.
Often a tedious cycle of recruiting, hiring, training, and firing includes finding the correct individual, which you repeat until you get the correct fit. This is highly expensive both in terms of time and money and can have an adverse effect on the culture of your office and clientele.
You are free of worries about payroll expenses or advantages with a Virtual Assistant, and there is no need for office room or facilities. Using a Virtual Assistant service gives you all the benefits of the assistance you need without the trouble you don’t have.
4.) You Can Use a Virtual Assistant As Needed
There are not enough tasks for many tiny companies and entrepreneurs to maintain a full-time worker busy. Others may need more assistance during busier times of the year, but then in the slower months little or no help. Some may only need assistance for a particular project’s length.
So why pay a wage for somebody to work 40 hours a week if you need them only sometimes? You have the choice to use time with them for a few hours a week, or several hours a day, with a Virtual Assistant service. And, as your company requires change, you can adjust the quantity.
Having the flexibility to customize your assistant’s quantity at any stage guarantees that you only pay for what you need.
5.) Having A Virtual Assistant Increases Your Productivity and Helps Avoid Burn Out
You wear a lot of distinct hats when you operate a small business, and being accountable for such a broad variety of duties can make you feel too thin. If you often end the day feeling like you’ve achieved very little even if you’re exhausted, it’s probable that too many tiny activities block your productivity.
What if there was a way of skipping the tedious, time-consuming portion and making the significant choices?
For example, if you need to go on a business conference trip, having a Virtual Assistant do everything you need to search for the best flight and hotel options (and book them for you) leaves you free to concentrate on preparing for the conference and the connections you want to make.
Or if you need research done for a blog post, having your assistant find the most relevant and up-to-date information means you’re not distracted or wasting time with anything you can’t use.
Having someone else to do the tiny original steps of bigger assignments enables you to concentrate on the large image and save you from tired decision making so you can be more productive and feel less stressed.
