“I think I can do this on my own.”
“It might be better if I work in this myself.”
Sound familiar? You might be saying these to yourself a lot while building up your business from scratch online.
They’re mantras often repeated in the heads of many up-and-coming entrepreneurs. Mind you, there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing things on your own. You can achieve goals by yourself if you work hard. No need to start posting job opening ads or do a Google search for the top virtual assistant service providers when you’ve got the hang of social media and emails, right?
The problem is that said mantras almost always have six words at the end that we hate hearing:
“But I don’t have the time.”
When you’re starting small, just focusing on making and selling your products in small quantities, it can be easy to think that you have all the time in the world to work on your business.
But when you begin expanding – you get more orders, make more deliveries, start a page on Facebook, among others — that’s when the going gets tough.
Eventually, you might find yourself suddenly unable to stick to your quota or answer customer inquiries on time.
The longer you continue to do everything on your own, the more tasks you’ll have piling up. And sometimes you don’t have the skills to pull off said tasks — nor do you have the time to learn them.
It may even come to a point when all that you’re doing finally crashes down on you. Though I do hope it never comes to that.
So How Can A VA Give You The Time You Need?
A virtual assistant can help shoulder those other tasks that aren’t really the main focus of your business. They can handle your customer’s questions on Facebook, send emails, edit photos – virtually (no pun intended) that can be done on a computer or online, they can do for you. Now you can work more on, say, selling and improving your products and services or meeting with folks who want to invest in your business.
And unlike with a regular employee, you won’t have to worry about taking care of their benefits, taxes and the like. Saves you the trouble of doing extra errands, doesn’t it?
