Whatwhat is a virtual assistant is a Virtual Assistant

I have been getting the same questions ever since I have been telling people that I am setting up my own Virtual Assistant business; What is a Virtual Assistant? What does your new business do?

Firstly, what is a Virtual Assistant?

To explain the concept, a Virtual Assistant is a person who provides services to other businesses from a remote location, in exchange for an agreed upon fee. Accordingly, the services offered are remarkably diverse.

The concept of Virtual Assistants is not new and remote administration work has been available, globally, for the last 30 years. The latest global challenge has emphasized that it is most possible to work from home. According to a Harvard Business Review article, Virtual Assistants and remote employees are more productive. This is due to their stress levels being much lower.

In general, a Virtual Assistant will provide services according to their skills. Some concentrate on bookkeeping, others on executive assistant tasks. Many web-designers and marketing specialists perform their services as Virtual Assistants.

Our Services

Personally, my skills and interests, and therefore my main services are:

  • Executive and Technical – Where I can utilize my company secretary background and pleasure of drafting minutes. Furthermore, where I can use my analytical background to research, analyze and present data and statistics.
  • Creative – I have always liked to design marketing materials and to design websites. I have the required knowledge of SEO and SMM to ensure your website and social media is up to par.

Review my list of services for further details.

Finally, why should you use a Virtual Assistant

Hiring an additional staff member can be too costly, especially for a start-up. For instance, the salary, training cost, infrastructure, tax, social security and benefits may add up to huge expenses. In addition, fear and uncertainty from the latest global challenge spells trouble for a lot of businesses and institutions across all sectors. In light of this, this may not be the time to hire a full time employee. However, the work is still there and needs to be done. Simultaneously, your needs may be temporary or varied from time to time. Accordingly you may not want to commit to an employee. This is why you should use a Virtual Assistant. Ultimately, the concept of a virtual assistant was developed as a smarter and more cost-effective alternative.
