If you don’t have an assistant, you ARE the assistant!
If you’re running a Real Estate business on your own, then you’re not alone. Real Estate Agents are known to be solopreneurs, working on everything themselves from prospecting, contract to close and even marketing. They’re dedicated, hardworking, and used to running their business this way, which is why delegating may be an issue for a lot of them.
One thing that top Real Estate Teams have in common is that they have multiple or at least one Virtual Assistant, each with their own talents, working on areas of the business where they can truly make a difference. These business owners understand the value of delegating their busy work to their Real Estate Virtual assistants, therefore they are able to work ON their business as opposed to IN it.
You too can adapt these best practices; all you have to do is get over that hurdle of hiring your first Virtual assistant.
The most daunting step is knowing where to start, and that’s why we’re here. Here are the six steps to hiring your first Virtual Assistant.
Step one: Take time To Analyze Your Work Patterns.
The biggest mistake one can make when hiring a Virtual assistant is not knowing exactly what they want them to do. Knowing you simply need assistance is a good start but WHAT EXACTLY do you need done?
Start by thinking of one or two tasks that keep piling-up or that you mean to accomplish but rarely get around to doing, now look at all the things you have on your plate and analyze which items take a lot of time but do not necessarily need to be done by you and what else you could focus on that only you can do, if you had these things taken off your plate. The results could blow your mind.
At MyOutDesk, we recommend that business owners analyze their work patterns with something called the Sticky Challenge (Read about it here). A lot of business owners are shocked to discover that over 80% of their time is focused toward the non-revenue productive activities in their business! Wouldn’t you like to reclaim your time and have the freedom to focus on the areas of your business that will make it grow? Hiring a Virtual assistant and delegating these tasks to them is an easy solution.
