Why do you need a Virtual Assistant (VA)? Do you know what a VA is? Because if you did, we are sure you would already have one!
A VA becomes part of your business, they help you grow and become more efficient with your time! They are there for you to remind you why you started your company, as we are sure it wasn’t because you love admin tasks. They become your simple solution.
As a business owner you are looking for supportive solutions to help manage your business and business owners who succeed in their ventures do two things really well:
- They face business objectives strategically
- They make use of the available resources around to give their business every advantage they can
Let us tell you why you need a VA……
1. They save you money!
When you hire a Virtual Assistant you can make instant savings! As you are growing your construction business the need for staff and space is essential, this makes expansion very difficult and costly for small businesses. Virtual Assistant services provides you with the opportunity to expand without the cost of expensive overheads. These are some of the costs that can be reduced for your business by hiring a VA:
* Office space
* Holiday and Sickness pay
* Employee Training
* Tax & NI
* Office Equipment
* Salary (inc Recruitment Costs)
* Employee Benefits
Having tasks outsourced is a great money saving option for businesses, using a VA to cut down on your operational expenses will mean your profit margin will start to rise.
2. You only pay for the work they do for you!
With an employee you pay for coffee breaks and bathroom visits, with a VA you only pay for the time spent on the actual work they do. Coffee breaks are not included in your hours, once a job is completed they stop the clock meaning you only pay for the time they worked on your company! This guarantees you get your money worth every time!
This is one of the cost advantages you get when you outsource your daily tasks to them. This allows you to have the job at a high quality standard and as a cost effective solution.
3. Reduce your stress levels!
When you have to plan your week, book all your appointments, manage your emails, take phone calls, it doesn’t sound too bad but it can easily get messy and become very stressful to manage and that is something you do not have time for!
One of the benefits of hiring a VA is that they can handle these for you. As a business owner you have a lot of responsibilities and you do not want to be stressed out by the little things, you started your business to make peoples lives easier, not harder for you.
4. Increased productivity and reduced workload for you!
Have you ever worked hard all day thinking you have done so much, but really you haven’t accomplished as much as you thought and wasn’t very important? If this sounds like you then you need a VA, they will help increase your productivity as they handle your day to day tasks so you can focus on the more important ones, like expanding your business ,improving your customer relations and doing the work you love.
The important tasks that you as a business owner should be doing can be overshadowed by the consistent daily tasks meaning you have no time to work on your business. This is where they can step in to allow you to focus on what’s important. How would you feel if you had some of these tasks of your hand?
