Working with a virtual assistant can help increase your productivity. Virtual assistants can keep you organised by managing your calendar and time, meetings, manage your inbox and helping you with your to do-list. Moreover, with a virtual assistant you can save on costs, compared to a full-time employee. A virtual assistant can give you time and freedom to focus on doing the things that you love. You can focus your time on the strategy of your business, developing new products, customer acquisition, etc.

Modern-day productivity is more than just getting a lot done. You also want to create more time to do what you love. Focus on your “genius zone” and outsource the rest to a virtual assistant. Virtual assistants are a really efficient way to get things done on a budget. Before you hire a virtual assistant start by identifying your repetitive tasks. To get a good list of these tasks, go through your average week and identify tasks that repeat. If they are in your genius zone, then keep those tasks for yourself. If they aren’t, then they’re tasks you can train a virtual assistant to do.

There are no set tasks that virtual assistants perform, and assignments vary depending on the employer. Here are some of the most common jobs given to virtual assistants:

• Administrative tasks such as scheduling meetings, booking travel, managing diaries.
• Bookkeeping. A virtual assistant can help you manage your budget and track expenses.

• Content management. A virtual assistant can help you manage your production calendar, organise writing resources, and facilitate various elements of the publishing process.
