Entrepreneurs who need help, often fancy themselves as being capable of doing everything themselves. Others assume they cannot afford skilled virtual assistants. But many entrepreneurs simply fail to recognize the benefits of working with a VA Team which include saving you time – and more.
While business owners may seek out the lowest-cost virtual assistant services, this is not always the best indicator that you’ll actually save money overall.
It's Not Magic
The best Virtual Assistants don’t claim to work magic. In fact, VAs who are skilled and trained are usually the first to admit that keeping up with the pace of changes in today’s technology is a challenge. They are very aware that they must be dedicated to honing their skills and staying informed. This means that the best Virtual Assistant Teams are constantly learning.
It’s Not Cheap
Because VAs are usually independent contractors, training costs come out of their own pockets. The best Virtual Assistants know that it’s not okay to relax their efforts if they want to be experts at their tasks. They invest in what they do by learning what they can, what is necessary to their clients, making them worth far more than a ‘fiver’ any day of the week. And yet, Virtual Assistants who are worthy of their pay remain a low cost investment for successfully growing your organization.
It’s Not An Option
If you know you need help with marketing and managing your business online, you may have noticed there are many options and many types of virtual assistance available.
Virtual Assistants Services Commonly Offered:
• Back Office Management
• Content Creation
• Social Media Management
• Graphic Design
• Website Design
• Video Editing
Successful business owners know that it’s not an option to work with just anyone. The best Virtual Assistant Teams understand the importance of a good fit between those working together and attempt to make their specific services clear to potential clients.
It’s one thing to offer a service, it’s another to be capable of implementing that service with skill and effectiveness, at a reasonable cost to the client.
It’s Not Enough to Google
Obviously, as with just about anything else we want to know, Google has become the main source for finding a Virtual Assistant today. However, when seeking a great fit for a Virtual Assistant, it’s not unlike shopping for clothing online. You’ll likely read the description, and then make a decision based on the information supplied. You may be able to view the item and read about it, but you can’t really know how it’s going to fit until you actually try it on. Only then, will you truly know if it’s a good fit for you. Reviews and testimonials can be helpful, but they are still someone else’s experience.
Unfortunately, it only takes one unhappy customer to make most of us skeptical (even convinced) of a bad thing – while numerous positive reviews can fail to convince us of a good thing!
Do your homework. Ask the right questions.
The best Virtual Assistants offer:
• Integrity and transparency
• Competitive, reasonable pricing
• Flexibility and Turnaround Time
