If you are on the edge on deciding whether a virtual assistant is the right choice for your growing business, it's time to look at all of the benefits of hiring one. An assistant is a highly skilled professional who can offer a variety a different support services to help streamline your business. So why hire a virtual assistant versus a physical assistant? Sure, some business owners may prefer to yell out their office door to their assistant, but where's the benefit in that? Here are the benefits to going "virtual":
A given benefit of any assistant is that your workload is reduced. Stop spending time on the less important tasks so you can focus on the core functions to managing your business.
You are saving your business money. By hiring physical personnel, you are suffocating your margin for growth. An employee requires the added expenses of benefits, training, insurance, and taxes. Virtual assistants are independent contractors so there is no responsibility to you to provide anything. The VA handles all of that themselves!
There's no need for extra office space. A virtual assistant works remotely. They have their own office setup which saves you having to find a place for them.
Only pay for work actually completed. An employee is paid a wage to be present regardless if they are working or not. With a virtual assistant you are only paying for the actual time spent working on your tasks. This way, you can budget for the important things you need to outsource. Saving money is awesome!

I was a bit anxious with the idea of outsourcing work to a VA but had too much work to keep doing everything on my own. I'm glad I found Shantel! She took a lot of work out of my hands, making my life a lot easier. Some of the systems we use were new to her but she's quick at learning anything I threw her way. Shantel does a great job in handling our customer questions and solving their issues, so she's now the first point of contact for our online customer support.
