1 Overlooked Key to Small Business Success


Is this you?

You dreamed of owning your own business, doing what you love and enjoying unlimited earning potential. You researched. You planned. You prepared. Finally, you launched.

Your dream was realized...and then your business started to grow! Could it get any better? Well, yes, but if you're like many others, you may have encountered one unexpected challenge along the way: Are you drowning in the day-to-day administrative tasks necessary to make your business successful?

Managing emails. Bookkeeping. Writing articles or newsletters. Processing invoices. Answering phone calls. Scheduling appointments. Marketing. Customer Service. Travel Planning. They all take time. Unfortunately, time is in short supply when business is booming.

The work needs to be done, but you don't want to do it yourself and you don't want the cost or the hassle of hiring an employee, right?

So what's the key? A virtual assistant.

Virtual assistants provide a wide range of administrative services to small businesses and individuals. They are independent contractors who work from home, use their own equipment, occupy their own space and pay their own taxes and benefits. Best of all, they charge you only for time spent on your particular project(s). They typically have years of administrative experience under their belt and most are amazingly budget-conscious.

As an emerging industry, virtual assistance is quickly becoming a valuable asset to individual business owners and a must-have in the small business community at large. Handing off administrative tasks to someone with the tools and know-how to complete them quickly and efficiently is saving many businesses untold amounts of time and money. A virtual assistant is undoubtedly a worthwhile investment.

BONUS: 4 Tips for Working with a Virtual Assistant:

1. Start small. Don't be afraid to "test the waters" by giving your new virtual assistant a small project without a huge budget. It may take time to find a virtual assistant with whom you work well.

2. Be specific. Virtual assistants like to know exactly what's expected of them. Provide as much detail about your project and your needs as possible.

3. Forge a relationship. Establishing a strong, lasting connection with a virtual assistant will benefit you enormously in the long run. You will be surprised how much you come to rely on his/her knowledge and expertise.

4. Remember, your virtual assistant is not your employee; they are small business owners themselves, partnering with you to achieve success. This is a win-win situation because when you succeed, they succeed.
