It’s not brain surgery, most people CAN do their own admin, but is it the most effective use of a business owner’s time?
You might have no trouble creating your own newsletter, typing a letter, formatting a document, building a PowerPoint presentation and updating your website, but is that how you want to build YOUR business when there are so many other things to be done as well?
A person who specialises in administration would probably take less time to do the job and be focusing on what they are good at, not a hundred other tasks as well. Ask yourself a couple of questions, starting with:
If any of the answers were ‘No” then perhaps you need to consider an alternative to the DIY approach. There are a number of options to consider when in this situation -
While these options are all fine, a Virtual Assistant (VA) offers the same support but it can be on an ‘as needed’ basis - and this has to be one of the best options.
A VA should have extensive office experience so you won’t incur any training or recruiting costs, and you only pay for the time worked, not for unproductive time or coffee breaks, sick or annual leave or superannuation - or a fixed period of employment as with a ‘temp’.
If you were able to take your attention away from the time consuming problems of administration and focus on your customers or your new sales drive, to spend your valuable time on the tasks which EARN you money, how much more attractive would the cost of that VA be.
And in the background, your emails are screened, your social media is active, your website and blog are maintained, your lists are up to date and your correspondence and email marketing is going out on time.
Worth every penny, and all you have to do is take the step to find out how a VA could make more time in your day!
