The simple answer to that is yes, of course they can! For starters what makes a VA different to a normal employee is that they own their own business. So not only do you get their years of expertise and knowledge, but you also get that extra acumen that only comes from running a successful business. How many times have you looked at a problem and failed to see the answer, yet someone from outside can see it instantly?
A VA can take your existing systems and procedures and streamline them or even introduce time and cost efficiencies into your business. They work with the best in cloud and virtual technologies, ensuring that jobs are carried out in the most efficient manner, reducing duplication, and saving you the time that you need to spend working on your business.
Outsourcing is the future for many small businesses, by collaborating with others your business is much stronger, having a team to call upon reduces some of the stress on your shoulders. In any business there are only a finite number of hours, should you really be working all the hours yourself? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, it also leads to stress, trying to tackle jobs you’re not really qualified for, or actually working more hours than you did when you worked for someone else. The answer is to work smarter, not harder. Outsource the tasks you don’t have time for or hate to someone else – a VA.
We all know how hard it is to delegate, to believe that anyone can do the job as well as you can, but trust me, as someone who does outsource, there is nothing to beat that feeling of knowing your business is being looked after, you have support when you need it, and benefitting from that additional external knowledge. It’s transformed my business; why not let it transform yours as well.
