Virtual Assistant: The Newest Business Strategy You Didn’t Know You Needed

Updated: Mar 10, 2023


In today's business world, the need for virtual assistants is more important than ever. Businesses of all sizes are turning to virtual assistants to help with a variety of tasks, from customer support to administrative work and more. For startups and small businesses, in particular, this is a great way to maintain an efficient workflow and cut costs.


A lot of our readers and social media audience here are asking how we perceive virtual assistants these days. The only answer is a worthy investment. Not because hiring one is very cost-effective (well, that’s one of the many reasons, of course), but because the services and the results the VA give to their clients are superb! Now, in this blog post, let’s answer the questions that are lingering in your mind for so long.


Why Is a Virtual Assistant the Newest Strategy to Boost Your Business?

Yes! From simplifying tasks to automating mundane tasks, a virtual assistant is a great addition to any small business. By eliminating the need to perform certain tasks yourself, you'll be able to focus on more important aspects of your business (like growing it). You can even hire a virtual assistant with specialized skills to do specific tasks such as web or graphic design. And I tell you, this is the newest business strategy you must try! Although the cost of hiring a virtual assistant will vary depending on your specific needs, it is possible to find experienced VAS for affordable rates.

How Virtual Assistants Can Make Your Day Easier...and Better

The way that society is run is changing rapidly and with it the way that businesses must operate in order to stay competitive. As a result, it's become increasingly difficult for small business owners to keep up with all the tasks they need to complete in a day and still provide the level of customer service that their customers have come to expect. This is why it's so important for small business owners to find creative solutions to help them manage their workload more effectively. One of the best ways to do this is to use a virtual assistant.



Is Hiring a VA Better than Hiring an Employee?

While both options are great, there are some differences to consider before making a decision about which option is best for your business. For example, a virtual assistant can be used as much or as little as you need them to be and you can typically hire them on a part-time basis if you only need them occasionally. This gives you the flexibility to adjust your team size according to the needs of your business at any given time without having to commit to hiring a permanent employee. It's also important to remember that a virtual assistant doesn't come with all of the costs associated with hiring an employee such as sick pay, vacation time, benefits, etc.


In many cases, a virtual assistant will be much less expensive than hiring a full-time employee. Finally, working with a virtual assistant is a great way to save time that would otherwise be spent performing administrative duties yourself.


However, no matter how ideal the thought of hiring a VA is to you there are also some disadvantages to hiring one. If you are in the real estate industry, your assistant cannot go with you to open houses or in-person events. He or she can’t assist you in accommodating your clients and whatnot. But aside from not being physically present, a VA can do anything for you as long as it’s related to the job description you gave him/her.
