What is a Virtual Assistant, and How Can a VA Make Your Life Easier?
    January 26, 2018

    It doesn't matter how well-organized you are or how well you've managed your time. There's just never enough time in the day to get everything done!

    Worse, the average working day is getting substantially longer, with 65 percent of workers saying they're expected to take work-related calls... even at home. As a result, workers have less free time and more responsibility.

    But what if there was a way to make your day to day work life easier and help you get things done? If you're ready to increase your productivity and lower stress levels, consider a Virtual Assistant.

    What is a Virtual Assistant?

    What is a Virtual Assistant and how exactly can one make your life easier? Read on to find out everything you need to know.

    A Virtual Assistant is a way to Make Life Easier

    When we think of those with assistants, we think of multi-millionaire CEO bigwigs. But the truth is, virtually any worker, regardless of status, can get a Virtual Assistant to help them out.

    At its core, the biggest difference between an online assistant and a traditional assistant is location. While the latter needs a designated workspace in the office, the former does not.

    In fact, Virtual Assistants are rarely (if ever) in the same location as their client. Most Virtual Assistants work remotely, allowing you more space and resources for what matters most at your office.

    A Virtual Assistant Offers Flexibility

    Aside from not needing physical proximity, there are tons of different conveniences that online assistants offer. For instance, since they work remotely, they're able to work wherever, whenever.

    No more worrying about hazardous weather conditions or getting stuck in traffic! Your Virtual Assistant is here to assist you as needed.

    As a result, all they need is a laptop, smartphone, internet connection, and an assignment to work. This gives you more time to focus on increasing sales or improving customer relationships.

    Enlisting the aid of a Virtual Assistant provides you with flexibility. There's no need to stay at the office to take calls and manage your calendar. Your assistant can update you as needed.

    Virtual Assistants Can Complete a Variety of Tasks

    It's true that your Virtual assistant can help with basic administrative tasks like scheduling and day-to-day management. But that's not even scratching the surface of what most assistants are capable of!

    For instance, are you looking for someone to run a social media campaign? Sure, you could outsource to a marketing company, but that's going to cost tons of money that you may not have.

    Instead, let your assistant help! Most assistants are well-versed in marketing, SEO, blogging, bookkeeping, and even HR. By hiring a Virtual Assistant, you're consolidating administrative, creative, and tasks.
