I am glad you asked! As a "VA" or "Virtual Assistant" I provide a highly-skilled and versatile service that performs a wide range of administrative, creative, technical and other various business supports.
Why do I need a VA?
Many small businesses simply cannot afford to hire a full-time administrator, graphic designer, copywriter/proofreader, social media specialist, bookkeeper, and a receptionist. Combined, hiring each one of those individuals would cost your businesses approximately $250,000 a year. For the businesses that can afford to hire for at least one of the above positions, they struggle finding qualified individuals that can "do it all".
In addition to the above, In Alberta, our labour standard states that you must pay an employee for a minimum of three hours work, even if you only needed them for one hour. This means that after they have completed their hour of work, they are either sitting on facebook on your dime or spending precious company time looking for "make work projects" that are not necessarily productive or conductive to your business' needs or operations. Virtual Assistants can help you cut costs as a business as individual contractors you are only required to pay them for the work they have completed. While some VAs work on a retainer, others do offer hourly services.
Why are you special?
I have several years of experience in both administrative and customer relations roles. I have spent the last three years of my career specializing in administrative support as an office manager for a psychotherapy clinic. Before that, I spent some time in the Insurance industry, and before my stint in Insurance, I spent several years in Sales and operating as an individual contractor. I have worked with both large corporations and small businesses, however, I have a keen interest in helping small business owners succeed. I possess a deep understanding of how small businesses operate and I am aware of their common struggles.
Throughout the course of my career, I have worked with almost all of my employers assisting them in building and creating polices and procedures manuals, streamlining their processes and teaching them how to 'work smart, not hard'.
In addition to my above-mentioned experience, as a VA I can offer services to anyone, anywhere in the world. Almost all of my work can be done virtually and electronically. I have a fully-loaded home office with all of the bells and whistles, a private and secure fiberoptic internet connection as well as, a brand new and reliable computer; effectively saving you all of that cost on an in-house employee. This is additionally beneficial in cases where you are a professional renting a room or you are a business owner without a "brick and mortar" location as with a VA, you do not need to reserve a space or have a physical location to house an employee (if this does not sound like your business do not worry! I can still help you).
Ok, What else do you do?
I am willing to bet a coffee that you have at least one project on the "back burner". By outsourcing your back burner projects to me, I can take that load off of your shoulders giving you more time to concentrate on your core and important tasks such as networking and prospecting new clients to generate revenue for your business.
