Do you often feel overwhelmed by the amount of task you need to accomplish?
You are not alone; every entrepreneur does. Time has always been one of the most valuable assets of an entrepreneur. If you have all the time, there is no end to the miracles you can achieve. But unfortunately, it is just 24 hours in a day, so the rush to want to pack as much as possible into the hours is perpetual. Can you achieve this all by yourself?
You will definitely enjoy some measure of success if you are determined, but balancing between effective and efficient use of your time takes more than your ability alone. The service of a virtual assistant becomes inevitable at this stage.
So, why do you need a virtual assistant? Here are five solid reasons.
1. Cut operational cost
Virtual assistants are professionals who work from home or from a remote office. They are self-motivated, result-driven, and entrepreneurial in their dispositions. This means that to work with these assistants, you do not have to set up an office for them, you only pay for the hours worked and you get the best value for your money. This is more cost effective than hiring a full time staff, who will be on full salary with some other benefits.
2. Increase productivity
Most of the office tasks that take our time, such as email management, content creation, client follow up etc., are repetitive. The smart thing to do to repetitive task is to automate them. Now, you should understand that outsourcing (BPO – Business Process Outsourcing) is considered to be an integral part of Business Process Automation (BPA). You should outsource the repetitive tasks to virtual assistants and handle the non-recurrent tasks yourself or delegate it to your regular staff. This way, nothing is overlooked and business productivity is improved.
3. Concentrate on your core business
Outsourcing the mundane tasks to a virtual assistant frees up productive time for you to concentrate on your core business operations. Also, having ample time to focus on your core job allows you to standout in your industry, as you are constantly working without distractions, and practice, they say, makes perfect. Perfection is very important if you must achieve your business goals and remain ahead of the competition.
4. Access to exceptional talents
You need to come to terms with the fact that you cannot be the best in everything. Even when you are the best, you still cannot achieve everything alone, given the limited time available. You will definitely have some competitive advantage over other people or businesses. Your areas of competitive advantages should be your core business. But you can still have the best of all worlds through outsourcing. This is the main focus of the economic law of comparative advantage. Nations and corporations have taken advantage of the ingenuity of this law to build greater territories. You should review this law and find its applicability in your business.
5. Takes away the stress
You can always sleep easy when you know that your business is in capable hands. No tightness in the chest. No perpetual rush to meet up with deadlines. No boredom from repetitive tasks. Above all, your business processes keep getting more efficient and effective.
