Saving Money with a VA
Do You Need A Virtual Assistant?
Running a small business means you have a lot on your plate. How can you maximize your earning potential while still reining in operating costs? Partner with a virtual assistant! How often have you sat at your desk, stared at your mound of paperwork and thought wistfully about hiring an assistant–only to have second thoughts because of the cost? A virtual assistant is an independent contractor. This means that you won’t pay for employee taxes, employee life & health benefits, 401K’s, coffee breaks, employee social time, sick days, and vacation days. Since you are dealing with an experienced professional, you won’t pay for training, either. This gives you more time to devote to your clients, more money to market your business and more freedom to focus on your company’s vision.
An experienced VA to call on in time of need or to build a long-term relationship provides peace of mind. One of the most exciting things about having a virtual assistant to collaborate and partner with is that they have a vested interest in your business. Your success is their success!
Your Team of Experts
Having a virtual assistant is like having an entire team of experts at your disposal. Your VA can handle tasks like bookkeeping, transcription, social media marketing, print media, branding, reservations and event planning and many other virtual concierge services, document formatting, website building, blog planning, and search engine optimization. All of this is work that is now off your plate.
In addition, your virtual assistant probably has many business connections. Your VA may adeptly manage your on-the-road coaching schedule, but perhaps she doesn’t do bookkeeping. Chances are, though, that she knows a great bookkeeper to fill that job for you.
If you find yourself buried in paperwork or with a long undone to-do list, try partnering with a virtual assistant and feel the difference. You may only need one hour of help a month, or you may need over ten hours a week. Whichever is the case, you are sure to save money working with a VA. Don’t hesitate to take that step today. Get it off your plate and out of your mind!
