Thats a great question, people can get quite confused as to what a Virtual Assistant (VA) does, and how they can help them in their business.
So, firstly, virtual assistants can be a generalists; general admin including email and diary management, travel arrangements etc, or they can be specialists; such as social media management, copywriting, book-keeping, or a VA specialising in particular software(s) etc.
So the ways that they can help you with productivity is either by doing the tasks that you aren’t good at; those tasks that takes you a week to do, like setting up email marketing from scratch, or developing a basic website, can take a VA with the right skillset much less time.
Another way is by doing the tasks that you don’t like doing, especially if you find them mundane, like data entry for example, so that you can focus your efforts on not just the things you like doing, but also on the tasks that bring you in clients.
If you need help in deciding what tasks you want to delegate, or indeed any other tips on delegating to be more productive, then don’t hesitant to give me a call!
