Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Virtual Assistant?  

 

According to VAnetworking.com, here's why!

  1.  With a VA, you save money as you don’t have to provide office space, furnishings or equipment. Every VA works from their own office environment.

  2. With a VA, you don’t have to worry about coordinating work schedules. Simply send off the work to be done with a due date.

  3. A client only pays for the actual time a VA spends on completing the task. No money spent on bathroom visits, water cooler chats, or coffee breaks.

  4. When hiring a VA, there is no need to pay for fringe benefits like health insurance, vacation pay or employer wage deductions. Virtual Assistant takes care of all their own overhead costs.

  5. In-house staff will probably require training. A VA is already proficient with the latest tools and technology to do the job.

  6. As an independent business owner themselves, a VA has the ability to see the bigger picture. Unlike an employee, a VA knows and understands the challenges of running a business.

  7. A Virtual Assistant invests in their own business and has the software available to complete projects. A client can save money by not having to use their funds to purchase software for every new project.

  8. As a worldwide organization, VA’s have a resource pool available to call upon. If there is a time constraint, they have access to numerous connections who can be called upon to complete the job.

  9. Commuting is never a problem with a VA. Your work will get completed even during the worst weather. No downtime due to traffic accidents, construction or vehicle emergencies.

  10. As each client relationship is protected with a Confidentiality Agreement, you can be confident in the integrity of your VA and don’t need to wor ry about confidential company information being leaked at the water cooler.
