My 30 Day Blogging Challenge continues.
The tag [TIME SAVED] shows you where a Virtual Assistant (such as Virtual Hand) can save you time by doing these elements. This allows you to do what you love in your business as well as what you are good at.
When a business turns to a Virtual Assistant for support, it is usually because they have been made aware of the many benefits that come hand in hand with flexible, reliable outsourcing. The next step may be an On-line Business Manager.
Whether a business is taking the first step to expand by turning to someone for support, or alternatively they have utilised the services of a VA before, they know that they are doing this because it makes sense!
Virtual Assistants will often assist their clients for long periods of time. Their interest is in helping their clients to nurture and grow their business and be their right hand (or Virtual Hand) support throughout and beyond the process. However, they are also aware that some clients can simply outgrow their VA. They may have hit a level of success where more than one pair of hands is required and need to consider if it’s the time to take on employed administrative support. Of course, it’s a sad time to see a client no longer need a particular service, but it’s also time to celebrate together. VA and Client have worked together to make this happen and hopefully, as a new requirement is needed within a business, they can then turn back to their VA for flexible support until such time as that position needs to be filled with employed staff.
If on the other hand a potential client is looking for a little temporary support, many Virtual Assistants are more than willing to oblige. Perhaps if they are just not quite ready to take on the responsibility of employing a member of staff just yet, but know that it’s inevitable in the not too distant future? They will still need that support on a short term, cost effective basis.
A Virtual Assistant is the perfect stop gap support, but that doesn’t have to be the end
You can continue to utilise the services of your Virtual Assistant, even when you’re ready to take on permanent staff. There are even VAs that could assist you with finding the right candidates to apply for the position for when you are ready to make the commitment [TIME SAVED]. Once your position is advertised [TIME SAVED], you will also want someone to monitor applications [TIME SAVED] arrange interviews and appointments [TIME SAVED] and send out correspondence [TIME SAVED]. Perhaps you will need someone to train the new employee [TIME SAVED].
