To be able to increase your business’ productivity and revenue, you will have to increase your marketing activities. You can focus more on the marketing aspect of your business if you delegate simple, repetitive and time-consuming tasks to a virtual assistant (VA).
Virtual assistants are independent contractors who provide a diverse range of expert administrative, office, and other services to managers and business entrepreneurs. Here are just some of the things a virtual assistant can help you with:
Data collation and organization
A virtual personal assistant can collect and filter out information that comes in through your site. They can filter out spammy information from useful data and compile them in a database, thus it’ll be more convenient when you go through them at a later time.
This is a very basic task that involves entering info to databases, spreadsheets, and other applications that require data entry. This is one of those simple tasks that can eat up a lot of your time, so it is best that you delegate this to a virtual assistant.
Managing your business will involve a lot of typing, editing, and proofreading business documents, correspondence and other promotional papers. A virtual administrative assistant can help you with all of these, lightening your workload.
Handle your newsletters
A virtual assistant who can do basic layout and design can handle the sending out of newsletters for your business. This can serve as additional help to the branding effort of your company.
Basic accounting and bookkeeping
Some VAs offer bookkeeping services. If you’re in need of a virtual office assistant who can do accounting and bookkeeping of financial documents, then you have to look for one, from a rich pool of available VAs, with the said skill set.
Quality Customer service support
Part of virtual assistant services that most VAs offer is customer support. A virtual assistant can provide email and phone support to your customers and clients. The delegation of customer support to a VA is ideal if you’ve got a lot of business appointments to attend to or if you do not have time to do it yourself. A VA can also sort and filter out your emails according to the degree of urgency and handle email correspondence on your behalf.
Web and other online services
Your virtual assistant can also be tasked to handle and manage blogs and websites. Plus you can have your virtual office assistant set up social networking accounts for your business such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
