Delegating admin tasks to a Virtual Assistant can be a huge relief to business owners but a question often asked is:
“What can I delegate to a Virtual Assistant?”
Well, pretty much anything that you give to an onsite personal assistant, a Virtual Assistant can do for you, well apart from making the tea!
Virtual Assistants can have specialist skills, general skills or both and can support business owners in all industries and professions which means that it is a lot easier to find a Virtual Assistant or a team of Virtual Assistants to complete the time consuming tasks enabling business owners to concentrate on growing their business.
Examples of tasks that can be outsourced include:
• Book keeping
• Creating and managing Social Media accounts
• Uploading content to Social Media accounts
• Writing blogs
• Graphic design
• Call answering and message taking
• General admin support
• Data entry
• Copy and audio typing
• Creating and maintaining websites
• HR and recruitment
and so much more!
So how do I decide what to outsource?
Firstly make a list of all the tasks that you complete over a period of time and separate them into 3 lists:
1. Tasks that are time consuming but essential
2. Tasks that you dislike doing
3. Tasks that you do enjoy completing
The tasks in lists 1 and 2 are the ones that can be outsourced to a Virtual Assistant while you can keep the tasks that are in list 3.
If you are not sure if outsourcing your tasks to a Virtual Assistant would work for you, why not outsource one task or a small project to see how it goes?
