What a Virtual Assistant Can Do for You and Your Business

There are many different ways a Virtual Assistant can support your business. Before we look at some sample tasks you can hand over, it is worth thinking about the importance of hiring a VA. The main thing to think about is that with a VA’s help, you'll be able to stop spending so much time on projects that are time consuming and drain your energy, and instead focus on those things you enjoy doing. You'll probably even find that once you hand over those tasks you don't like and which you found so time consuming, your VA will probably not spend as much time as you did on them!

Here are some of the basic things a VA can do for you:

  • Client support

  • E-mail management

  • Article submission

  • Press release submission

  • Schedule calls

  • Maintain databases

  • Send invoices to your clients

  • Email marketing - setting up/sending mailings for you through software like Mailchimp, Constant Contact, AWeber, etc

  • Content management

  • Social media management

  • Internet research

  • Travel planning (reserving flights, booking hotels, etc)

  • Blog commenting

This is just a small list of some basic tasks a VA can do for you in you. Of course there are things that require more skill that you can also hand over to a VA, such as:

  • Web design

  • Graphic design

  • Website updates

  • Technical support

  • Shopping cart maintenance (like Infusionsoft, 1ShoppingCart, etc)

  • Kindle publishing

  • Set up and manage webinars

  • Writing sales copy

  • Project management

  • Bookkeeping

  • SEO

  • Audio/Video help (editing, creating, etc)

  • PowerPoint

  • Transcription

Again, this is just a small list of some of the tasks that require more of a skill set, but that can also be handed off to a trusted VA. This list is definitely not exhaustive and there are other jobs that can be outsourced as well.
