Everyone can benefit from a virtual assistant, especially small business owners and solopreneurs who have just too much to do! VA’s have all kinds of skills, from generalized admin capabilities to marketing and tech, and back end to front end website work.
So how could a Virtual Assistant help you with your marketing?
- VA’s can help you filter communication. You probably get 100 emails per day. A VA can filter them for you, prioritize client emails, respond to customer questions, send contracts, delete spam and more. Having someone do these tasks can win you back at least a couple hours of your day. And if you trust your VA, he or she will be one of your greatest team members and assets.
- VA’s can also take care of tedious tasks. A virtual assistant can do research, collect data, create reports – all the things that you need to do but hate doing or don’t have time for. We all know it’s important to look at your website analytics, but you may not have the time, or perhaps don’t know how to even read the reports.
- Your super star VA can also help streamline your marketing. A big reason entrepreneurs outsource a VA is to help with digital marketing. They can put together your monthly newsletter, keep up to date with competitors and watch trends. Some may even manage your social media by creating profiles, posting content, and responding to comments. More tech-savvy VAs can keep your website up-to-date, build landing pages and do your SEO. Again – usually things you know you need to do, but never have time for.
If you aren’t sold, think of what your time is worth. Is it worth paying someone to handle it? Then take a few things off your plate. Let go of the reins and hire someone to help you. Then you can focus on the more important tasks of running your business.
