Have you heard of the term Virtual Assistant?
If you unsure what Virtual Assistants actually do, here is a definition:
“A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a self-employed individual providing professional administrative, technical, or creative assistance. Typically a VA will complete work for clients remotely from their home office. Because virtual assistants are independent contractors rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits, except in the context that those indirect expenses are included in the VA’s fees.
Clients also avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space, equipment or supplies. Clients pay for 100% productive work, and can work with Virtual Assistants, individually, or in multi-VA firms to meet their exact needs. Virtual Assistants usually work for other small businesses but can also support busy executives.”
What can a Virtual Assistant do?
A VA can pretty much do anything that an in-house administrator or PA can do. It is not just limited to admin tasks, they can also deal with website, marketing, technical and creative tasks too. Some VAs will specialise in specific tasks or niche.
