What is a Virtual Assistant?


Have you ever wondered what a Virtual Assistant does, and how hiring one can help your business?

Sometimes, running a business can feel overwhelming. Have you ever felt that you just do not have enough time to get everything done? You are not alone! Business owners dream of running a successful business and being their own boss. The reality can be a bit of a nightmare. The key to not drowning is recognising when tasks can be outsourced.

So, what is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant is self-employed and works remotely from their own office. Different Virtual Assistants will have different skill sets -  therefore it is important for you to find one that resonates with your business needs.

There is a common misconception that a Virtual Assistant is a secretary that works from home. Whilst most Virtual Assistants provide administrative support, many will offer support in other elements. Here is a breakdown of just some of the tasks that you could outsource to a Virtual Assistant:

  • Customer Support
  • Calendar and Diary Management
  • Email Management
  • Travel Arrangements
  • Build and Manage Websites
  • Create Blog Posts
  • Social Media Management
  • Invoicing and Quotes
  • Minute taking

The list is by no means exhaustive. Do not hesitate to get in touch and ask if there is anything you need help with, Virtual Assistants are talented and skilled. If there is something we cannot help with, we will more than likely know someone else that can!
