With 2021 just around the corner, it’s time to reflect on the OH so crazy 2020 we all had and how we can improve in the new year. When you think about your business in the new year, what goals have you set for yourself and your business? Do you want to become more organized and efficient? Do you want to see your business grow and scale? Do you want to ramp up your social media game? Whatever your goals for your business may be, Virtual Gurus is here to help you achieve them. Here’s how our team of virtual assistants can help your business in 2021.

Executive Assistance

Managing and growing a business is tough, especially when your day is consumed with administrative tasks. Increase your productivity and upgrade your business with one of our executive virtual assistants.

Executive virtual assistants can help with:

  • Email management
  • Calendar management
  • Scheduling and attending meetings (via Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts)
  • Taking and distributing meeting minutes
  • Travel arrangements
  • Event planning
  • Personal banking
  • Client facing communication
  • Creating Excel sheets & PowerPoint presentations
  • Copywriting

Data Entry

The world is becoming ever-increasingly dependent on digital technology. Record keeping, the need for consistent, accurate and dependable data entry has become obvious. If you’ve ever run a business from the ground up you will know how time and energy consuming it can be. The last thing a business owner needs to be investing their time in are the mundane tasks that don’t grow their business. Why not hand it off to your dependable virtual assistant who can likely do the task faster than you can. Why not focus on the growth of your company instead?

Email Management

If you looked at your email inbox right now, how many unread emails would you see? If you’re like most people it is likely a number that might make you blush. Then there is the matter of actually finding the emails you need NOW. The email vortex has taken more than one business leader to the edge of insanity and what makes it more frustrating is that it is all so unnecessary. By hiring a talented Canadian-based virtual assistant to solve your email vortex, your mind can be free to focus on more important matters.

Calendar Management

Have you ever been on the receiving end of a double-booked calendar? If yes, then you know how frustrating it can be from the client/customer side to take time out of your day for an appointment only to have it not be there waiting for you at the scheduled time. And it is worse if you have had to travel for the appointment, isn’t it? If booking appointments is a big part of your business you can’t afford to risk these double bookings and a lack of time buffers that can potentially upset a prospect or client. Your remote worker can ensure that your calendar never causes wires to get crossed and your prospects, customers and clients stay happy.

Sales & Marketing

All businesses need to market, period. Without marketing, nobody can ever learn about how their world can benefit from working with your business. However the marketing landscape continues to change at speeds that are hard to keep up with which can easily drain hours from your day. Let your Canadian-based virtual assistant (VA) take on the tasks to keep an ample flow of leads and sales flowing into your business while you are doing the operations that only you can do. With CRM management your Virtual Assistant will ensure familiarity with managing your business’ CRM’s based on your specific business needs and what you are currently using for software.

Social Media

These days if you don’t have a social media presence, it can be as if you (and/or your company) doesn’t even exist. It’s become one of the first ways prospects can learn about your company and engage with it as well. If social media isn’t your ‘thing,’ it quickly becomes a daunting and unenjoyable task. This is where the Virtual Gurus come in. Our Canadian-based virtual assistants LOVE social media and would be happy to handle your online social media presence.
