Hire Top Online Personal Assistants
A personal assistant is a clear sign of success for many business owners, executives, entrepreneurs, and even freelancers. They have done well enough in their career that they don’t just need help with personal tasks, but also get to hire someone to do some of the things they don’t necessarily enjoy.
Aren’t personal assistants expensive though?
The short answer is yes. However, with our Virtual Personal Assistants here at BizVA, we can help you find your perfect “right-hand man” match, at an affordable price for you and your business.
What is a Virtual Personal Assistant?
As a personal assistant who can work from home, a virtual personal assistant (VPA) can come in and take care of many of your least favorite tasks while staying at home. They can do many of the assistant jobs that usually take a lot of time in the office just by working over the phone or the Internet. And it turns out that this is often better than having a traditional personal assistant.
Virtual Personal Assistant Services
Here are some of the most common tasks you can have your assistant who works from home do for you:
Virtual Personal Assistants offer personal task help
A virtual personal assistant can help in these situations:
- Make calls and set up personal appointments
- Handle customer service over the phone, like for refunds and more
- Complete some of the little things in your daily life that you’d rather not do
Virtual Personal Assistants offer data entry
Data entry can be one of the least favorite things to do for business professionals. You can hire a virtual personal assistant to do data entry so that you can focus on other tasks you may enjoy and have more expertise in.
Assistance with research from your Virtual Personal Assistant
Research can be difficult and time-consuming, but it’s an important part of running a business, whether you’re looking for the best printer to buy or the best software to help your business grow. A virtual personal assistant can help you do research quickly and give you the ability to make management-level decisions in both your personal and professional life.
Calendar management is taken care of by your Virtual Personal Assistant
Everyone can use more help managing their schedules. When you have a dedicated assistant with years of experience managing calendars, it’s much easier to keep track of personal appointments and find a good balance between work and life.
Odd tasks for your business done with Virtual Personal Assistants
Do you have a business or personal podcast that needs help? Do you dislike talking to customer service? Do you want to stay in touch with people who don’t live where you do and live in a different time zone?
Hiring someone who works more like a freelancer than a full-time employee is a great way to make sure you have everything you need to make your daily life as easy as possible.
Phone answering made easy with Online Personal Assistants
A personal assistant can answer your phone calls, make new ones, and keep you in touch with what’s going on while you work on other things. This is great for people who need to get away sometimes for long weekends or vacations. It keeps you in the loop in case of emergencies but keeps your time away from work stress-free.
How Virtual Personal Assistants Work
It can be expensive to hire a full-time personal assistant. When you add up the hours worked, the annual salary, the benefits, and the time off, you might be surprised at how quickly it all adds up. A virtual personal assistant allows you to have the same kind of experience virtually, but it won’t cost as much or take up as much of your time.
With a virtual personal assistant, the hours you pay for will be much more directly related to how much you get done. If you pay a virtual assistant to enter data for you for three hours, you can see the results of that work right away. There’s nothing to guess about. You’ll be able to see the results of your work and the direct link between the number of hours paid and the amount of work done.
Your Assistant will Love What They Do
People are becoming virtual assistants for more reasons than just the rise in demand. As a virtual assistant, they can set their hours, which is something that a lot of people like. They can work from home, so they don’t have to spend time getting to an office in the morning, which saves them time every day.
Virtual Personal Assistant FAQs
Who could use a virtual personal assistant?
Many different kinds of people, here are some examples:
- A freelancer who needs to improve work-life balance and increase their overall capacity
- Someone who works in the C-suite but doesn’t have a full-time assistant
- A business owner who is just starting to hire more people to help you grow
- Someone who never seems to have enough time
You might be surprised by how many people could use some help in their business lives.
How do I make sure my online personal assistant knows what to do for my business?
This starts with the hiring process. You don’t want to hire a virtual assistant who doesn’t have the experience you’re looking for. Working with BizVA, we will help you make sure that what you need and what a virtual assistant can do for you are very similar.
Aside from that, make sure you include a document that explains your processes and how they work and be sure to give your VPA detailed feedback, especially at the beginning of their time with you.
Is there anything my virtual personal assistant can’t do?
They’re really only limited by how close or how far away they are. Anything you need to be done can be done by a virtual worker over the phone or computer, and in the modern world, that’s a lot. In some cases, they may even be able to set up physical things, like food delivery, if there is a local person who can fill in for them.
