As a business owner, do you often find yourself performing repetitive tasks that take too much of your time? if the answer is yes you are not alone. Most entrepreneurs that come to us face this same problem, and to solve it we recommend hiring a general virtual assistant.
The day only has 24 hours, in which to live a healthy life you should sleep, spend quality time with your loved ones, and take care of yourself. This leaves you with only so many hours to work.
In this blog, you will learn all the benefits of delegating tasks to a VA, to increase your business productivity and live a better quality of life.
Benefits of Hiring a General Virtual Assistant
In the last 3 years, remote working has become the most popular way to do business. It has been demonstrated that on-site workers waste time and money traveling to an office, while remote workers are able to get the same amount of work done while working from all different parts of the world.
Hiring a general virtual assistant to work remotely can save companies money. This allows you to hire someone from a different part of the world and currency exchange is a huge benefit. Entrepreneurs are able to save anywhere from 40% to 75% on expenses compared to hiring a VA based in the U.S.
2. More Done, in Less Time
To ensure the productivity of a remote workforce, entrepreneurs can use different productivity tools to track the performance of their virtual assistants. You don’t have to worry about receiving quality work, employee monitoring software allows you to notice how much time it’s being spent on each task, motivating talent to work smart and efficiently.
Some productivity tools ideas: Hubstaff, Time Doctor, Harvest, TopTracker, etc.
3. Time Efficiency
We believe that the most significant benefit of hiring a general virtual assistant is time-saving, by delegating tasks to your VA you can save anywhere from 10-40 hours a week.
Ask yourself this question: What do you dread doing that you could outsource? when outsourcing you are investing in both your business and yourself. It’s completely normal not to be able to handle it all.
Remember: time is money, make sure you are spending your time wisely!
There are several tasks a general virtual assistant can perform for your company. Some of those tasks are cold calling, content creation, lead generation, social media, marketing, bookkeeping, appointment setting, etc.
