With remote work on the rise, more and more businesses are seeking out support from virtual assistants. Virtual assistants increase workplace efficiency, free-up your valuable time, and are cost-effective solutions to in-house employees.

Take a look at these all too common scenarios.

You’re spending way too much time trying to manage all of your social media profiles.

Your email inbox is getting bigger each day.

You’re missing important client requests and big project deadlines.

You keep forgetting about your meetings — both in your business and personal life.

You’re feeling overwhelmed and burnt out.

Do any of these sound like you? Take back control of your life, your business, and bring on a virtual assistant to help you and your team get your business back on the right track. Here are 5 signs you need to hire a virtual assistant.

You Don’t Have the Skills To Complete Certain Tasks

Need a photo for your website edited with Photoshop but don’t know how? Looking to optimize your social media posts to reach a bigger audience but aren’t sure what that takes? Want to start a blog for your business but don’t consider yourself to be a grammar guru? Stop spending time trying to figure things out and start delegating tasks that require niche expertise to a virtual assistant who specializes in those areas. Learning new skills can be wonderful when we have the time for it, but oftentimes as a business owner our time is limited. Work with a virtual assistant to complete these tasks and who can show you the ropes with a few new skills to add to your skill set.

You’re Struggling to Meet Deadlines

Life is busy. And, when you have your own business, life can get completely chaotic. Finding the balance between your business and personal life can be difficult to achieve with so many moving parts constantly at play. Our kids are doing virtual school from home and need constant support, we have calendars full of Zoom meetings between big project deadlines, we need to make sure our social media posts are going out every day, and we’re constantly being bombarded by an overflowing inbox. Get your virtual assistant to take care of the items you simply don’t have time for and get your life and business organized, so that you’re one step ahead for all future deadlines.

You Need Support, But Don’t Want to Hire a Full-Time Employee

One of the biggest reasons why business owners are adamant on doing everything themselves is to keep the costs associated with having full-time employees at a minimum. We get it. We know that having a team of in-house, full-time employees can be costly (paying for vacation time, office supplies, and benefits all add up), which is why virtual assistants are the perfect solution for seeking additional help. We believe in providing cost-effective solutions for outsourced assistance. With a virtual assistant, you only pay for the time that you use. Only need 10 hours of help a month? No problem. We’ve designed our virtual assistant packages to meet the needs, the hours, and the budgets of any size business.

You’re Ready to Scale Your Business

Are things ramping up with your business and you’re ready to scale? Having a virtual assistant there to support you while you grow your business can alleviate a lot of the pressure that comes with scaling. Outsource the tasks you don’t have time for and let your virtual assistant take care of the rest, so that you can focus your attention on the important things.

You’re Using Too Much Of Your Time On Tasks That Don’t Generate Any Revenue

Are you finding yourself working on administrative tasks and not spending enough time on the revenue-generating tasks that require your personal expertise? Coming up with copy for your social media posts, editing photos for marketing promos, managing client enquiries, and taking care of your month-end bookkeeping are all things that take up your valuable time and don’t generate revenue at the end of the day. Use your time more effectively and get a virtual assistant to take care of the administrative side of your business, so that you can focus on your sales.

Do these 5 signs sound all too familiar in your life?

We’ve helped hundreds of clients to prioritize what’s important for their business, get back their valuable time, save on costs, and grow their businesses.
