So why use a Virtual Assistant?
Time is precious to us all and as a very busy person you need to make the best use of your time. However, sometimes you find yourself caught up with general admin, social media or inputting data. You may be a small business owner, working remotely and don’t want to hire a permanent assistant. Here’s where a Virtual Assistant can help, taking off your hands those tasks that aren’t income generating, for example diary management, booking travel or doing research.
As a Virtual Assistant, I can help you in a myriad of ways, offering technical, creative and administrative help and support, allowing you to work ON your business and not IN your business.
A Virtual Assistant is freelance which means you:-
- Save on office space – being ‘virtual’ means that most communication between you and me is done via email and telephone so you don’t need to provide me with office space, desk and chair or a computer or copious cups of coffee. If you are a freelancer yourself, chances are you also work remotely. With a VA you can still work remotely and have support as needed.
- Save the cost of hiring an employee – no recruitment costs to pay, no time spent meeting with recruitment consultants or interviewing.
- Save on staff costs – you don’t pay me sick leave, holiday pay, pension or National Insurance contributions. I sort out all my own taxes and expenses.
- Only pay for the time worked on your projects – you only pay me for the time I’m contracted to work for you eg. 6 hours a week. If you pay per project, then this helps you when budgeting and you know exactly what costs are being spent on virtual assistant support.
