Have you ever thought of using a virtual assistant for some of your everyday tasks? If not, you should consider using them for one-off tasks or tasks that your team is too experienced for.
Take a look at the daily tasks you have and ask yourself if there are any that could be performed by a virtual assistant. Next, ask your team if there are any tasks that they do that they feel isn’t the best use of their time. Compile a list of all these tasks and find out how many hours it takes to complete them. Then look for a virtual assistant online to help complete some of these. It will be a relief to you, and your team will be able to focus on the bigger stuff.
You can look for virtual assistants overseas in places like the Philippines, India, or Indonesia. The money that you pay them is good money for them and it helps them. You can also look for virtual assistants on places like Fiverr or upwork.com.
Keep your core services for yourself and your team to work on, but see what everyday tasks you could hire out. Those tasks will get done quickly, you will be able to focus on scaling your business, and your team will be happier doing the work they were trained to do.
