Would you like to get 5 hours or more, back a week?
Research shows that on average businesses spend at least 10 to 15 hours a week on non-core, unbillable tasks. How amazing is that? So, if you’re earning say, $150 an hour, taking all day to do a particular task (and tearing your hair out while doing so) it makes sense to pay someone $50 an hour and they can do it half the time and with twice as much skill. It’s a no brainer!
Virtual Assistants not only save you time and money but they increase your productivity by improving your efficiency.
#1 … Setting Up Processes
How much time are you spending on everyday tasks? Do you ever wonder if there is an easier way of doing things? There are tons of programs available now that can help streamline and automate these everyday functions and a Virtual Assistant can help pin point these for you, set them up and get them working for you.
#2 … Social Media Management
We all know that social media can be and is very time consuming. Sure, you can do it yourself, it’s not rocket science but is it good use of your time? A Virtual Assistant can create and curate your content, schedule out your posts using programs such as Hootsuite, Buffer or Recurpost, just to name a few. They can also gather data and report on your social media effectiveness.
#3 … CRM Maintenance
Transform that pile of business cards by adding them to a centralised electronic Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) where you can track communications and potential earnings from clients. Awesome CRMs include Capsule, Insightly, 17Hats or the big gun, Infusionsoft. Most, if not all, integrate with email marketing programs and accounting packages, again streamlining and automating processes.Release the admin, regain your time and focus on your core business activity.
