If You Hired a Virtual Assistant, What Duty(s) Would You Hire Them For?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Boomerang Social

What would be the most important duty a Virtual Assistant (VA) could do for you and your business? Social Media? Maintain your client database? Keep your Quickbooks up to date? Set up your calendar for reminders?

There are so many duties that a business support specialist (VA) can do for a sole proprietor or a micro business it is hard to list all of them.

There are virtual companies that, of course, specialize in fields like bookkeeping, web site creation, and graphics to name a few.

But if you were looking for someone who could handle several day to day duties, what would be the most important one they could do for you that would make a difference in your time?

A task that would give you back an hour or more a day or even a few hours a week. One that at the same time, would ease your stress knowing that particular important business function was being handled professionally and on time.

When you decide what that would be, you have just figured out how to create more time in your day. More time that you can spend on developing better customer relations, more creative customer service, and more product.

If you are trying to do it all; everything from accounting to networking to caring for your customers and building your product, it could take much longer for you to grow your company. A little help can sometimes make a big difference! Please let me know what one or two duties you would like to have someone handle for you to give you more time and relieve a little stress!

Colleen, thinking about that, and so far am afriad to dive in. Sort of like work like my own personal assistant, and that's not what works well for me.

Sounds like an interesting challenge that requires me to examine all my operating procedures - not a bad concept at all. An overhaul of my work space (heap system) and "to do" lists might be a good place for me to start - and it is the weekend. I will let you know when I determine the two features I can outsource. You've got me thinking.

Thanks Jon and Larry.  I know it is hard to give up work that you have been handling in a system you are comfortable with. I completely understand that. 

But if you start with just one or two items that might save you a couple of hours a week, and put those hours to better work for you, you might just be surprised how much easier it becomes.

Definitely let me know what you guys figure out that might assist your daily schedule!  And thanks for commenting!  I appreciate it.
