The year 2021 is finally here. For many of us, the new year could not have arrived a minute too soon. 2020 was among the most difficult, challenging years in recent memory. In fact, in some ways, it was among the toughest years in U.S. history. Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic caused many businesses to go under in the previous year. For those businesses fortunate enough to stay open through the new year, now is the time to start thinking about the important changes which will be made to keep afloat during 2021.
In this post, we will identify and discuss the tasks which should be delegated as a matter of efficiency. Businesses should seriously consider outsourcing these tasks to virtual assistants, because doing so can save both time and money.
SEO / Internet Marketing
Search engine optimization (SEO, or internet marketing) refers to the practice of generating business leads through web development. Businesses can engage in SEO in an either an organic manner, or a paid manner (also referred to as “search engine marketing,” or SEM). SEO can be a very effective method for generating leads and growing your business. However, SEO can often be time-consuming, and in some cases can require certain types of expertise. This is definitely a task you should consider outsourcing to a virtual assistant. SEO is ideally suited to a virtual assistant because it can be done remotely without any hiccups or disadvantages.
When you conduct payroll, you need to complete numerous tasks, including paycheck computation, verifying hours, tax withholding, federal payroll tax filing, and so forth. These tasks can be outsourced to a virtual assistant, and doing so can be a boost to your business. Payroll is an integral part of your business, but payroll tasks can be done remotely, and virtual assistants tend to be more cost-effective and more efficient than in-house employees for payroll-related tasks.
Accounting tasks refer to either quarterly or yearly tax filings, tax deduction computation, tax credits, tax research, financial statement preparation, bank reconciliations, and other tasks as well. Many, if not all, of these tasks can be outsourced to a virtual assistant. Depending on the situation, you may need to provide specific training in one or more accounting tasks, but there is no reason why virtually all accounting tasks cannot be outsourced to a remote assistant. As with the other tasks highlighted above, outsourcing to a virtual assistant can be a big boost to your bottom line. Not only are virtual assistants cost-effective, you can use your newly-created time to focus on generating and cultivating more business for yourself.
