A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a professional that works remotely with your business to handle administrative tasks, from simple data-entry to tasks requiring specialised knowledge and experience.
As a contractor working remotely they only work the hours you require – therefore you are not paying for a staff member, their leave entitlements, superannuation, an office and all the associated equipment.
Tasks include but are not limited to the following:
- Office administration
- Secretarial work
- Social media support/marketing
- Graphic design
- Photo editing
- Sales and Marketing
- Inbound & outbound phone customer support
- Website design/management
- Data entry/spreadsheets
So next time you are thinking that you are sinking under a pile of work, think about hiring a VA for an hour, a day or ongoing.
