15 Apr Want An Easier Life? Here’s 4 Ways Virtual Assistant Services Can Do It
Have you ever wondered what us VAs actually spend our time doing? Why do people hire us, and what are the kinds of tasks we end up working on in a given day? The truth is, it could be almost anything. That’s the beauty of virtual assistant services. Now in one of our previous blogs we’ve talked about some of the things you should outsource to a VA as part of running your business – which you can read here. Today, we wanted to look at a few of the things virtual assistant services can offer that can make your day, and your life, just a little easier. Even during these challenging quarantine times. So grab your tea, coffee or beverage of choice and settle in.
You’ve been meaning to find and register for upcoming networking events (albeit online ones right now), but just don’t have the time. When was the last time you checked out the latest market trends relevant to your business? How about collating all the information you need to write your next marketing whitepaper, or arranging your travel logistics (again, maybe once lockdown is lifted!) Virtual assistant services are built for research, making them the perfect companion for tasks like this. Handing off research tasks to a virtual assistant means you can focus on running your business, and benefit from the skills and knowledge they bring at the same time.
Working with virtual assistant services to help grow and market to your database of contacts is a really common option, and a classic example of how a virtual assistant can add value. Your virtual assistant can help you create a new email marketing list in programmes such as MailChimp, add or remove subscribers, create and schedule email marketing campaigns, edit and create autoresponders and handle any follow up from your marketing sends. Quick, simple, and most importantly, not taking up any of your valuable time.
Whether it’s a slew of new businesses cards you picked up at a conference or updating your databases to comply with new legislation *cough* GDPR cough, keeping your databases up to date is a perfect task to pass on to a virtual assistant. So instead of you spending hours plugging data into a spreadsheet or database, you can focus on growing your business. This will also help keep you organised, ensure your marketing information is up to date and provide your business with the information you need to grow. Honestly, your business can benefit so much from even basic data entry
