All good entrepreneurs know that being in business is about building a firm that will be impactful, sustainable, and profitable. However, a great entrepreneur knows that this is not something you achieve all by yourself. They acknowledge the importance of delegating tasks to those who are best qualified, instead of juggling tasks trying to be a jack of all trades. In this blog, we will talk about the benefits of having a virtual assistant (VA).
When it comes to maximizing your efforts, having VAs in the team will help you take over administrative tasks. As a result, you will be able to increase your productivity and billable hours. For every hour spent working on admin tasks, you could be looking after a new client.
Secondly, stop spending money on overheads. The quality of offshore VAs is extremely high while their cost remains relatively low compared to traditional employees.
Thirdly, your firm or business will provide better client service. Because signing a client up is just the beginning of a long-term relationship, your VA will be able to update your systems, write email newsletters, and provide follow-up care. Fourthly, you will be able to focus on growing your firm or business, by spending time on professional aspects that only you can and should be doing to improve your growth. And lastly, overcome the pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic proved that all of the talents don’t necessarily have to be in the office. The solution is a VA, trained to meet the needs of the remote labor force.
What’s stopping you?
Now that you know how beneficial a virtual assistant can be for your firm or business, what’s stopping you from hiring one?
Scan your to-do list of the past week and for each task ask yourself: will I be able to bill the time spent on this task, should I be the one doing this? Thereafter, any activities you find where the answer is ‘no’, should be delegated to a VA. You should focus on freeing up your time to generate more income, and most importantly, be the lawyer you always wanted to be.
We invite you to learn more about Get Staffed Up, and the many VA services we offer. We look forward to working with you in the near future!
