Virtual assistant services are a key ingredient to helping start-ups and early stage companies get off the ground. Entrepreneurs are superheroes. Being a micro-manager may be necessary at first, but as time goes by it’s important to start letting go of the steering wheel just a little bit. Are you trying to do wear all the hats in your business and yet somehow the dream of owning your own successful business is looking different to the reality? If the answer is yes, take note of the most common tasks you should be delegating to your virtual assistant:

Bookkeeping. Every business has an element of bookkeeping work and it’s often the thing that’s on the bottom of the to do list. Business owners don’t always know what exactly they should be doing in terms of their business finances each month.

Online research. Online research is a very time-consuming activity, and it’s a good thing that virtual assistants are skilled in how to do research effectively. A virtual research assistant is a remote worker who conducts internet research as per their clients’ needs and sends the data to their clients after compilation.

Database entries. Whether you are a small businessman or a medium one, you must be handling a good amount of data. How do you manage your data? Do you get it done in-house? Anyone who runs a business that requires a lot of data entry knows just how time consuming that task can be. So why not hand it off to a virtual assistant?

Data presentations. A virtual assistant can make a stunning PowerPoint presentation as per your specifications so that you can make the most of your productive time.

Email management. There are dozens of tasks your virtual assistant can support you with when it comes to email management services. Your virtual assistant can: set up alerts, rules, and filters to suit your needs and preferences. Clean up and sort, archive or delete old emails clogging up your inbox.

Travel research. On top of managing your business, arranging travel can be a headache. Whether it’s for a key meeting or simply some time off away from work, find out how a travel virtual assistant can help take away the stress of travelling to let you focus on being on top form.

Scheduling. One of the biggest obstacles to time management for any busy businessperson is scheduling. It seems like more time is spent on coordinating schedules, rescheduling appointments, sending invites and even making contact then on actually meeting with the very same people and talking business. If this sounds familiar to you then the first place you’ll want to delegate is with scheduling! When a virtual assistant is handling your scheduling you have more time for meetings, phone calls and even follow up because you aren’t bogged down by the administrative side of things.

Scheduling coordination can happen in a variety of ways. Your virtual assistant can of course be the one to reach out to people, schedule meetings, add them to your calendar and send out invites. That process alone should free up valuable time!

Virtual assistants can help you streamline your work activities in no time! From handling your phone calls to managing your social media accounts, they can free up your time to focus on core activities. Also, as they’re skilled at what they do, they won’t need constant supervision – it’s a win-win for everyone involved!
