Hire A Virtual Assistant
Are you confused about outsourcing, how to hire a virtual assistant and the benefits of outsourcing rather than employing?
A great VA is an office lady or social media manager or personal assistant who gets things done in a timely fashion. For you.
We want you to achieve your dream which means your success is our success.
Our VA’s love admin, paperwork and digital marketing and we love using our skills to benefit you.
What benefits can I enjoy?
You can work anywhere, any time. Like me, you went into business so you can get some balance in your life. Outsourcing to us is a great way to keep that balance working for you.
Pay for the hours you need each month. Got a quiet few months coming up? No worries, we can easily adjust your service plan to suit your business flow.
Without the distractions of an office environment, we can focus and dedicate our time to getting your tasks done. We only turn on the timer when working on your tasks.
You get more time to focus on what you love doing. Instead of doing the jobs you don’t like, you can do the jobs you do like. It also means no more working late and missing out.
How to Hire a Virtual Assistant
Step 1: Make a list
Outsourcing is all about you and what you need. Before you start researching virtual assistant agencies, you need to decide what you need help with.
- What should I be doing to grow my business?
- What tasks do I struggle with or not enjoy doing?
- Are these tasks ongoing or one off tasks?
You will also need to take into consideration the systems you have in place around these tasks. How easy will it be for you to hand this task over to someone else? Perhaps these tasks could be automated? If so, you can find a VA who can help you automate your work flow.
Step 2: Research and Hire
Once you have your list, you can start researching virtual assistants. You will want to find someone who has the right skills and experience for the jobs you are looking to get help with.
Searching online and asking other business owners for recommendations are great ways to come up with a list of possible candidates. Then once you have your list finished, it is time to research each one by checking references and testimonials, as well as their websites.
Contact your preferred choices through phone and email, as this helps you to assess their verbal and written communication skills. Make sure that they tick all the right boxes for your job ad and if not, seek out another.
If you can’t decide, give each one you like a simple task to complete.
Step 3: Nurture and Grow
Hiring a VA gives you back your time, which as a small business owner is one of the most precious commodities you’ll ever have.
To make most of your virtual assistant and the benefits you can enjoy, you will need to spend time with your VA to train them and ensure they understand how your business works. Communication is key.
There are plenty of apps you can use to create a shared To Do List, such as Trello.
