Why do people hire Virtual Assistants?

A lot of people wonder how virtual assistants stay in business. I mean, if you need an assistant, why not just hire someone to work at your business full time?

It’s pretty simple, really. It comes down to money and convenience. A full-time administrative assistant can cost anywhere from $35,000 to $50,000 or more. That’s not even including benefits and bonuses. That’s a hefty price to pay if you don’t need someone around all the time or if you only need their help on a part time basis.

A virtual assistant makes ends meet by working for multiple people. So you can hire them to work for only the hours or tasks that you need them for. If you just need someone for five or so hours a week to take phone calls while you’re in meetings or onsite with a customer, they can do that. If you need them to work more hours one week, they can accommodate that.

What can a virtual assistant do?

There are a variety of virtual assistants and they all have different skills. Some may gear their work more toward scheduling and logistics, while others may focus on web-based services like manning email accounts, doing research or social media. Here are just a few things they can help you with.

  • CRM management
