Lets talk about the types of virtual assistant services you can hire to boost your productivity by focusing on your business.
The virtual assistant market is growing at an exponential growth. And with this outburst in the market, you can hire a virtual assistant to complete a wide variety of tasks.
One client hired us for the management of her recipe website. We update Rebecca’s website and reply to comments on social channels. Now, Rebecca has more time for creating new recipes.
Another client hired us to do Internet research. Mary is a Chief marketing officer in a big firm. Her role demands a great deal of Internet research.
Before hiring VGA she used to spend a boatload of time on the Internet researching. Many times, she had to stay back in the office to complete her tasks. VGA has made Mary’s life a lot easier. We complete Internet research while Mary focuses on important tasks. Now, Mary leaves the office on time and spends more quality time with her family. Mary is glad about this new arrangement, so is her 6-year-old son, Jim.
Hopefully these two very simple examples will have given you an idea that you can hire a virtual assistant to complete a wide variety of tasks.
So how many types of virtual assistant services are there?

Ten Things You Must Start Delegating to Your VA

Just as a small example this is how a virtual assistant has increased the audience of a popular recipe website.
“Rebecca is 34, a single mom, who is running a popular recipe website. She is very good at creating a blend of traditional and modern preparations.
In the beginning, everything was under control. But once her site started to attract visitors, it became difficult for her to manage her website.
There were hundreds of comments on the website and social media channels. A big chunk of her time was spent on replying comments. She didn’t have time to create new recipes.
One fine day, she made up her mind to hire a virtual assistant. Now, all she has to do is to write a recipe in simple word format. Everything, from content updating on the website to replying on social channels, is taken care of by her VA.
She has more time for creating new recipes. So she is focusing on the business not not wasting valuable time in it. Her website is being updated on a daily basis. More cooking aficionados are coming on her website.”
The best part of hiring a virtual assistant is that you can focus on the things that are of high value like strategy and outsource transactional tasks to a VA.👩🏻💼
Every start up owner wants a rocking success in their business endeavours, but do they achieve success?
Here is a reality check: 9 out of 10 startups fail. This is a hard and bleak truth. And the main reasons for failures are the lack of right resources, scarcity of funds, no market need etc.
Successful startup heads understand this and hire the right people without increasing the operating cost. How do they do it?
Most of them hire virtual assistants to be more productive.
Now, you may be wondering what is a Virtual Assistant?
According to PC Magazine,
“An individual who works at home performing administrative functions for clients. Virtual assistants (VAs) communicate with clients via phone, e-mail, instant messaging or some other collaborative software.”
Virtual assistants are not those who are sitting in an ivory tower – they are real people completing challenging tasks.
Leading companies, such as Buffer, Mozilla, Genuitec, etc., only hire distributed teams.
And you will be surprised to know that telecommuting for work climbs to 37% in the US. This means 37% US workers telecommunicate.
The point here is,
The trend of working remotely is catching up very fast.
“I think that in this day and age Virtual Assistants are invaluable – not only do they increase your productivity on the things you already have to do, they help you to focus on things you couldn’t focus on before (the things that are crucial to giving your business the edge over the competition and expanding it!). My wife and I both work from home, which is a big help, but when she or I are stacking too much on our proverbial plates we do have a few trusted VA’s that we reach out to for help on outsourceable stuff and it makes a world of difference.
The way businesses are starting up these days a lot of them have virtual teams spread across the world, not just in a central office, so having VAs help manage these remote teams is where we are in the modern workplace. The VAs get extra money and are able to work from their own homes for it, and remote agencies are able to increase their productivity and income as a direct result – it really is a win win for everyone. If you haven’t tried it, or are scared to try it, invest in a good VA and you’ll be surprised by the results”, says Web Designer Andy Sowards. 👩🏻💼
