Entrepreneurs Ask: What Can a Virtual Assistant Do For Me?

Great question!

Freeing your time is an indisputably key element in growing your business! When you delegate tasks to the capable hands of a professional Virtual Assistant (VA), you can quickly and easily refocus your energies on other aspects of business directly linked to generating revenue.

Partnering with a professional Virtual Assistant will:

Increase your revenue. Delegating administrative tasks frees you to focus your energy where it needs to be-on generating revenue and growing your business!

Increase your productivity. A Virtual Assistant manages the duties that devour your time and productivity, allowing you to focus on producing. You avoid spending precious time addressing the minutia of business.

Save you money. Virtual Assistans are fully-equipped technologically with updated software and hardware, eliminating the need for you to purchase additional equipment or software.

They also save you the expense of securing a full-time or even part-time employee (such as worker's comp insurance, Federal and State taxes, office space, equipment, supplies, and other costs).

Every hour spent on VA services is 100% productive. You only pay for the time it takes to efficiently and thoroughly complete a job.

Save you time. An hour of VA service performed is not the same as an hour you spend doing the job yourself. VA's are entrepreneurs just like you whose only business it is to support you! They don't have the pressure of many other tasks, all demanding their attention. They focus on supporting you by performing administrative duties and offering constructive input on the aspects of business where you require the most help; that is all they do!

Save you frustration. It can be extremely frustrating to look at your to-do list and know that there is no way you will be able to get to every task, let alone finish them! What begins to happen is paralysis. Managing tasks becomes overwhelming, and it becomes easier to retreat than prioritize, delegate, and focus on the one task in front of you. When you delegate your tasks to a VA, you will quickly be able to start crossing items off your list!

You also avoid the frustration of investing time and money learning a new skill-set to get the job done. Your professional VA already possesses the expertise and a proven history of getting the job done- most of the time before your deadline! They can save you hours of hassle and exasperation.

VA's who possess expertise in a specific industry can provide even more benefit. Many offer consulting services and "insider" knowledge often based on many years of experience. Tapping into this resource is a smart way to save yourself many hours. When you can trust the advice of a professional, or confidently delegate a project, you have the peace-of-mind to focus on managing and growing your business, thereby generating more income!
