With the increase in remote work, virtual assistants (VAs) have become more in demand than ever. You may even be considering one for your own business to lessen your workload or to build a supportive team to help your business grow.

How could hiring a VA benefit your business? Let’s break down 5 reasons you should hire a VA!

What Is A Virtual Assistant?

In the simplest terms, virtual assistants are skilled professionals who provide their services remotely. With their specific skill set, they can work with any client to reach their goal while helping them handle their business and help them grow. 

#1 Reduced Workload

Do you have your hands full? A virtual assistant can take a huge chunk of your burden off by doing the things that you don’t have time for. By focusing on several crucial tasks, they can help you by doing the following:

  • Scheduling
  • Web Design
  • E-commerce
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Content Writing
  • Administrative
  • Inbox Management
  • And much more!

#2 Business Growth

Hiring a virtual assistant can be of great help to your business. Not only can they apply their skillset to take tasks off your hands, but they can also help you scale your business.

Having a VA take the tasks that are unrelated to revenue generation off your hands will allow you to focus on your solely business. This will allow you to increase client capacity or focus on new projects to expand your business.

#3 Increased Productivity

In a traditional workplace, you would be playing employees essentially for showing up, whether they are idle or not as long as they show up they’ll be getting paid. In contrast, when working with a VA, you’re being charged for the tasks you assign them or for the time it takes to complete them.

#4 Improve Your Online Presence

An active and engaged presence in social media takes a lot of time and persistence. To some it can also be quite confusing. Having a VA with a social media or content skillset can help you keep a consistent, high-quality social media and online presence to create awareness and to help you see business growth!

#5 Cut Business Expenses

Did you know that businesses that hire a VA can save up to 78% percent on operating costs? 

Just to list a few of the expenses you can spare when hiring a virtual assistant: 

  • You don’t have to pay for extra office space or equipment. Virtual assistants work from their own computers and typically have their own equipment   
  • You save on hiring costs! Unlike a traditional employee, you don’t need to train your virtual assistant apart from the initial onboarding call.  
  • Depending on the type of employment the business owner is not subject to take care of your health care, benefits, etc.

A virtual assistant can tremendously help your business with your everyday tasks in additionadditional to supporting your business with its specific needs.
