Who Is A Virtual Assistant?

By Ansu Abraham

More and more companies and individuals are starting to hire Virtual Assistants for a variety of services. Some of the fields in which they can be of very helpful are administrative, clerical, data entry, technical, marketing, creative, website development/maintenance services and day-to-day operations. Since they are hired as independent contractors and not as regular employees, you don’t have to worry about the expenses related to providing them any benefits either.

A Virtual Assistant usually works from a remote location and most of the time, you never even meet them. But this doesn’t mean there is any lack of productivity. Usually a VA communicates with you via email and phone. You can just send them the files that need to be worked on via email and either include the instructions on that email itself or call them to give detailed instructions. Even though a VA acts as a full time employee, you don’t have to provide him with any of the benefits that you will need to give a regular employee.

Now instead of taking paper files into the next room or building, you can simply attach those files to an email and hit send. Your VAs will work on those files according to your instructions and return them via email. They will have good experience and better skills in managing and delivering tasks assigned to them.

VAs help to meet the growing needs of a small business by virtually supporting it via phone, fax and internet based technology. In order to avoid feeling frustrated and out-of-time, or trying to play catch-up on both business and personal deadlines while neglecting time with family and friends,

They work with the same dedication like how you would work for your business. It’s like your own shadow helping you to multiply your time which you always wanted to invest towards the growth of your business. This way you can concentrate more on your business needs and stop worrying about the paper work that needs to be done.
