As a small business owner, you wear ALL the hats. With limited knowledge in some areas and only 24 hours in a day, it can be hard to keep up with the demands of daily business operations while still finding time to focus on growth. If you feel like you’re barely keeping up with the day to day opps of being a small business owner, it might be time to add a virtual assistant to your team. Virtual assistants are invaluable when it comes to helping small business owners manage their workload and achieve growth. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share 3 HUGE benefits of hiring a virtual assistant and how doing so can help your business (and lets be real, your stress level). 

1. Time Management and Efficiency

Hiring a virtual assistant can help you maximize your time and increase efficiency by freeing up hours in your day that would otherwise be spent on administrative tasks such as scheduling, customer service, making travel arrangements, or data entry. With a virtual assistant doing these tasks for you, you will have more time to focus on higher-level tasks that you actually love doing. You started your business in the first place  to do/create what you wanted- by adding a virtual assistant to your team to take care of the daily opps, you might actually have time to work on the projects that will propel your business forward.

2. Overall cost is lower than having an employee

Adding a virtual assistant to your team can be less expensive than hiring a part time employee. Crazy right? But, hear me out. Instead of having to pay benefits or paid time off, you only need to pay an hourly rate or monthly retainer fee for the specific services provided by the virtual assistant. This means that you don’t have to worry about increased (and unnecessary) overhead costs that come with hiring an in-house employee.

3. Virtual Assistants are experts in their specific fields

Another great benefit of hiring a virtual assistant is the opportunity to tap into their expertise in areas where you may lack knowledge or experience. For example, if you need help with SEO or web design, there are virtual assistants who specialize in those areas and can provide valuable assistance in those specific areas. You don’t need to waste time and energy hiring someone who just knows a little bit about everything when you can hire a virtual assistant who specializes in the exact area you are needing help in.

Okay, but now what?

Honestly, starting the process to add a virtual assistant to your team begins when you realize how many benefits of hiring a virtual assistant there are. And if you’ve made it this far, I’m sure you realize how much your business could benefit for hiring a virtual assistant . Once you’ve decided you are ready to add a virtual assistant to your team, do your research. Find a virtual assistant that is an expert in the area you are looking for help in and someone that would be a perfect addition to your team. Once you’ve selected a virtual assistant, getting them onboarded into your business can be the most complicated part. But don’t worry- I’ve got you!
