Virtual Assistants - Small Business Resource...do you know what that title even means? Because virtual assistance is a newer field, brought about by advancement in technology, sometimes small business owners we come in contact with don't really understand how we can solve common small business problems.
For instance, as a baker, you may get a lot of phone calls but a high percentage of sales calls. You don't have enough work or money to justify hiring a full-time employee to sit at your bakery and answer phones & help clients yet, so a virtual assistant (VA) would answer your phones off-site and deliver messages to you while you bake and help the walk-in traffic. Your client gets a human when they call your company, any sales calls are now filtered (call back only those you're actually interested in), and you aren't interrupted in baking and helping clients. Your virtual assistant acts as a professional gatekeeper with a customer service edge. We assess your needs (ie taking orders, answering basic hours and information questions, relay of messages etc.) and assign you a regular professional admin virtual assistant.
Virtual assistants can perform all sorts of administrative support for your small business. Apply the answering phones scenario to answering emails, or data entry, or bookkeeping. Any administrative work you struggle with, don't have time for or simply don't want to do can be farmed out to a virtual assistant for either a flat fee or hourly basis.
Gone are the days where business owners are forced by workforce supply & demand to hire employees, pay taxes on them, and manage them as well. Small businesses can compete with the big boys now because of the new technology today. Get out there and carve out your fortune! Work smart!
