5 Ways a Virtual Assistant Can Save You 2 Hours Per Day.png

As any business owner knows, time is your most precious commodity. To run a successful business, you need to invest quality time in it. However, trying to do everything by yourself may not reflect positively on your business or your own well-being so delegating your time wisely is of the utmost importance.

This is where a Virtual Assistant comes into play. There are many tasks a VA can manage in order to free up your time.

Below are 5 different tasks you can assign to a Virtual Assistant and save up to two hours per day. The time you save, you can put into growing your business and earning more income.

1. Transfer your calendar to your Virtual Assistant

Managing a calendar can be a tedious task, but doing so while also running a successful business may result in a few mishaps. Missed appointments, things booked for the wrong date are all things that can be avoided by giving your VA access to your calendar. Say you find yourself in a different environment in desperate need of a service you get done regularly. A dedicated virtual assistant could handle such a task in a matter of minutes and send you all of the necessary information, saving you the stress and the time of having to chase everything by yourself.

2. Using Social Media to market your business

The advantages of social media are numerous, but using them for marketing and brand awareness can be a very useful tool in getting people to hear about your business without geographical restrictions.

Instagram and Facebook are a great way to have people hear about you, and are excellent platforms a virtual assistant can manage. I have heard stories of businesses growing just by their VA’s involvement in keeping all the networks connected and updated.

3. Hand over your email inbox to your Virtual Assistant

We all know how challenging it can be having to deal with your email inbox. As your business grows, so does the volume of emails. A virtual assistant can reply to emails for you just like you would, forward important ones directly or even text you if there is something urgent.

They can also delete your junk mail, unsubscribe you from those newsletters and sales emails. This frees up a lot of time and energy that you can dedicate elsewhere.

4. Posting blog posts for you

Being seen as an authority on a subject matter is a good advert for your business. In order to run a successful blog, you need to share your knowledge on the topic and provide content to your readers regularly. But who has time for this?

A virtual assistant can help. They can help you thoroughly research topics and prepare your content for publishing. They can take care of anything from formatting to tagging and optimizing, which allows for more time for you to focus on the content, which is the fun part of blogging.

5. Providing Customer Support instead of you

A dedicated VA can answer emails phone calls or chat for you.

When running a business, quality customer support is a massive key to the satisfaction of your customers. There is a variety of software downloadable to a computer which can be used for support. This would easily enable your Virtual Assistant to communicate with the clients and assist them with their needs. These include ones such as TalkDesk and ZenDesk.

Another useful job that a VA can do is handling a live chat. This is very important because site visitors can get their questions answered in real time instead of waiting for an email or a call which increases conversion.
