Are you running out of hours in the day and falling behind on your admin tasks? Do you have time to represent your company brand on social media and to your clients at the high standard it should be?
Asking for help is not as hard as it seems! When you hire a Virtual Assistant you have someone available for any task, on an as needed basis. Whether it be putting together a monthly newsletter for your client/website database or scheduling posts on your social media channels, all these things added up can take up a lot of valuable time! I have put together 5 tasks a Virtual Assistant can help you with in your business so you have more time to focus on your clients.
1. Company Image: Social Media
What you put online can change someone’s perspective of your business within seconds. A professional infographic is eye catching and more likely to get read than text. Your profiles should be professionally branded and have clear logos and up to date information. If you are producing content, is it being shared in a way that people want to read it? Having a Virtual Assistant overlooking and/or managing your social media can ensure your brand is presented at the consistently high standard it should be.
2. Company Image: Business documents
Anything you put in front of a client should be professional, easy to read, consistent with your style guide and to a high standard. Do you have a slick proposal to present to your clients? A Virtual Assistant can brand all your documents professionally by sticking to or creating a style guide to ensure consistency across your businesses image.
3. Database Management
Most databases are the backbone to any business, without it being up to date you could forget things or more importantly miss crucial follow ups with clients. Having an efficient Virtual Assistant to bring a database back up to scratch can really take the pressure off, so you can reconnect with your clients, while newly set up processes will ensure it remains that way.
Technology is advancing so quickly and without knowing it there could be better options for your business out there. Virtual Assistants need to be up to date with the latest technological trends and have skills in implementing and picking up new software quickly. Do you want to move to a new software but don’t know where to start? Hiring someone with the technical know how can ensure you are using your software to its fullest potential. Its amazing how many programs are out there that can save you valuable time, that are not being utilised as they could be.
5. Everything else
Virtual Assistants usually have such a broad set of experience. If you don’t know how to do something or you have something that is just taking up too much of your time, a helping hand might just be the key to taking the pressure off. Virtual Assistants work with a variety of clients and have insight on efficient workflow processes and what different technology is out there. Also if we don’t know how to do something, or don’t know how to use a software, we will go and teach ourselves.
Whether you need someone to help for an hour or you need ongoing help within your company, hiring a Virtual Assistant might just be the answer you have been looking for. Without the added costs and responsibilities of an employee such as workcover and Superannuation, a Virtual Assistant can help you build your business up professionally, as you would like it to be. You will be surprised at the amount of technology there is available to have a Virtual Assistant as a member of your team!
