a virtual assistant is an individual who helps up with your crucial administrative tasks from a distant location. They can (and often do) handle everything from answering emails to a database entry, website administration, and managing social media.
Entrepreneurs start their startups with big plans. However, it’s all too easy to get stuck by the multiple daily tasks involved in building a business empire. No matter the industry, every company has these critical tasks that can’t be ignored, and ultimately keep out the entrepreneur from the work they do best. This is where a virtual assistant can come to the rescue.

The Benefits of Using a Virtual Assistant
The number one reason people hire a virtual assistant is to reduce their cost of business. Compared to a regular or full-time employee, a virtual assistant costs less because the business owner does not pay benefits, and the virtual assistant will never ask pay rise, bonus or they will never go on strike and sick leave.
Virtual assistants, however, will not only keep your incremental costs lower but keep your business flexible. How?
- Virtual assistants do not have set work schedules; you can assign them to shifts that require greater attention.
- You spend less time training because virtual assistants already have the experience and competency level to get the job done.
- Since virtual assistants are on a contractual basis, they can be easily terminated and replaced.
The next good reason for hiring virtual assistants is to free you, the entrepreneur, from nonessential tasks. These include:
- Data entry and mining
- Email management
- Calendar management
- Appointment setting
- Research on certain topics
- Social media management
- Payroll preparation
While you probably have the skills to do all or most of these tasks, you will definitely not have the time. And even if you do, your available time is better spent on functions that require your core competency or are directly related to generating revenues for your business.
