How many of you have started your businesses but gotten stuck or overwhelmed with all of the set up, marketing and general day to day admin tasks? You are not alone my dear, dear friend.
It's easy to get your head spinning.
I've helped many business owners launch, grow, and scale their businesses.
There's no need to get bogged down or caught up into thinking that you have to go it alone.
Hiring a virtual assistant is all it takes to free up your time so you can focus on more important things like growing your business. Here are my top 7 jobs that you can outsource.
First things first...What is a virtual assistant?
In case you’re new here, I wanted to cover what a Virtual Assistant actually is.
There is no cut and dry description. At Presto Virtual Assistance Services, a (VA) is any type of remote assistant who provides administrative, creative, or technical support services for online or brick-and-mortar business owners.
There are so many things you can outsource to a VA, that sometimes it’s hard to choose where to start.
As promised, here are my top 7 jobs to outsource to a VA.
#1 - Data Entry; there are so many reasons why you should outsource data entry projects to a VA. One of the benefits is to gain better use of your time.
#2 - Email Management; This is HUGE and definitely one of the most popular jobs that is requested by my clients. It's one of the first things that many clients will hand off in their business. Your VA can organize, respond and filter emails. If you're using advanced systems such as HelpScout, your VA can answer your customer service emails, create templates and automatic replies. There is even a tag feature to track and monitor different types of emails, subjects, actions and more. There is so much you can get done simply by outsourcing email management.
#3- Calendar Management; By using tools like Calendly or Acuity, a VA can book appointments for you without having to email back and forth. However, sometimes, that's necessary too. You may want your VA to provide you with a daily report of what's on your to-do list or meetings you have booked for that day. If you work with a team and need multiple users to view the same calendar, I would highly recommend Team\Up.
Plan upcoming blog posts, events, conferences and more.
#4- Facebook Page Management; When you need somebody to post content, respond to messages and comments, a VA can help you with this too. This task can include posting a few times a day, content creating ad what graphics or images will be used. It could also simply be giving you prompts so that you can create the post yourself. Maybe you already have posts and you just need someone to schedule them for you. Page management can mean so many different things and can be very time consuming. It is definitely a job that can be outsourced to a VA.
#5- Facebook Group Management; On the best of days, managing a Facebook group can often be very time consuming for the avid business owner. Many business owners don't have the energy to actively admin their own groups. As an admin for your group, the VA's goat is to take some work off your plate. Things like responding to comments and posting inside of the group, process member requests or create events. Tasks that would otherwise take up a good chunk of your time. These are all pretty intensive tasks but are very essential to grow your Facebook group and make sure it remains healthy and keeps its purpose.
#6- Graphic Design; I'm a creative at heart and I love using Canva to create beautiful graphics for my clients. With this tool, your VA can create logos, social media graphics, Pinterest pins, branding boards, templates and much more!
#7- Visibility and Outreach; What does this mean? Simply put, it means that you want to get eyes on your business and to get your business known. One way a VA can help with this is to get you on podcasts that are a good fit for your business.
Whatever it is that you need help with, a VA can be a God send. Trust me, there's more to running a successful business and it's impossible to know or do all things. Hiring a Virtual Assistant is the first thing standing between you and success! Book a free 1:1 today. Your freedom is waiting.
