House of Margot has a new menu of services and included in those service options are Virtual Assistant packages.
We feel like offering virtual assistance is on the right track of what our ideal clients need and that we feel led to provide.
Some of you might know what virtual assistant work entails, but some of you might not. Or, some of you might not know why you would need that service. So, we’re here to tell you five darn good reasons why you need a virtual assistant.
#1 FOCUS ON THE FUN STUFF
Every business owner has parts of their job they love and parts of their job they don’t love so much.
A virtual assistant is like a digital Mary Poppins. We have stuff and tricks and goodies we can pull out of our proverbial bag to help you accomplish certain tasks so you can concentrate on in-depth or “more fun” tasks.
#2 BE IN MULTIPLE PLACES AT ONCE
Have you always wanted to be able to duplicate yourself so you can get it all done?
A virtual assistant can mediate your Facebook group while you write blog posts, or they can create social media graphics and answer emails while you have a video conference with a new client. VA’s take on the look, feel, and voice of your brand to get tasks done like you would do them.
#3 FILL IN GAPS
No one can do it all.
When it comes to running a business, there are so many platforms and different types of software and a massive amount of rules and guidelines to adhere to. And you shouldn’t be expected to learn how to do every single one of them.
Hiring a virtual assistant who has a different set of skills than you can create a more homogenous work environment which will help every aspect of your business run more smoothly.
#4 TAKE A DANG BREAK
A lot of business owners - and especially those who are parents - get run down and worn out at some point from having to do all the things. When you get that overwhelmed, it’s not good for you or your family or your business.
Virtual assistants can work for you with an ongoing contract, or just for a short amount of time so you can take a breather and take care of your mental health.
#5 BE LIKE IHOP
Do you have clients or business partners in a different time zone than you? Do you find that your business services need to be available longer than you can sit at a desk?
Hiring a virtual assistant who is a night owl or that lives in a different time zone than you can create an opportunity for your business to be open or available 24/7 like IHOP…minus the pancakes.
