As an entrepreneur, your goal is to grow your business and generate income. If you’re still working your day job, your time is probably limited. You may need to hire an assistant to help with tasks such as social media, email management and/or other tasks that don’t necessarily have to be your responsibility. The attached video by New York Times Best Selling Author, Daven Michaels offers a few tips on how you can support your business by hiring the right VAs.
When you get to a point in your business that you’re no longer able to run things on your own, it can be scary. You might feel like you’re losing control. But the truth is, it’s time to celebrate. It means your business is growing! Hiring a staff you can trust is crucial if you’re to continue to be successful. Some of the things your VA can help you with:
- Social Media: Facebook and twitter Posting
- Appointment setting/email management
- Article Submissions
- Accounting (both accounts payable and accounts receivable)
- Blogging, article writing, and content creation
There are VAs who specialize in every aspect of business. By training and managing them, you’ll streamline your operations and your business will flourish. As with everything, there are at least two sides to securing trustworthy assistance as you grow.
The good news: the Internet is virtually exploding with information and resources for virtual assistants. The not-so-good news: not every resource will lead you to qualified VAs. And the really serious question is this: will you know how and what to look for? And once you identify a person or two you might want to work with, will you know how to train them? Will you know how to effectively manage them or will it end up costing you more in time and money?
Hiring virtual assistants is an important step for your business. The attached video gives insight into choosing, training and managing the people who will move you to the top.
