What if I told you that you DON’T have to go it all alone? Here are some tasks you can outsource to a virtual assistant and save yourself time.
Your time is precious and obviously, you want to maximize it to its fullest potential. Diary management isn’t just about organising your day to day activities. It involves getting to know how you work, what your business priorities are, organising your materials into the order in which you will need them. Hiring someone to organise and keep track of your working day for you can be hugely beneficial and rewarding, freeing up precious time for the more important aspects of your business.
Social media posting
Keeping up with social media is essential these days. However, like most things, it takes time, research and often a great deal of patience. Not only do you have to sign up to these platforms, but you also have to come up with content, schedule and post it, then interact with any response you get. You also have to deal with each platform’s specific algorithms for posting.
Do yourself a favour, decide which platforms you want to post on, collaborate your content and hire someone to sort out the rest.
Arranging meetings/booking onto conferences/webinars
There is a lot to be said about outside resources and keeping relationships positive in the world of business. Booking onto meetings and other business opportunities is crucial but can be tedious and time-consuming. Having someone specifically researching and booking you onto these events (even attending on your behalf) can be hugely beneficial and can save you both time and headspace.
A menial task but in most industries, definitely needs to be done. Inputting contact details for clients? Updating email addresses for your mailing lists? Outsource this task inexpensively for maximum efficiency.
Having an up to date website is paramount in the business world but can sometimes not be feasible due to other commitments. Having someone experienced in web design and maintenance will be money well spent as they will keep you at the forefront of your online audience with very little input from yourself.
So there you have it, five incredibly necessary tasks that you can offload to a trusted virtual assistant. Can you think of others?
