How can a virtual assistant help me?

If you’re working on your own, or a director of a small or medium business, a virtual assistant will be an invaluable resource in your business.
They bring in an extra resource into your business that supports the tasks you can’t do or don’t want to do. Employment costs are high when NI, pension, holidays and sick pay are taken into account. A VA will be more expensive per hour than an employee, but you only contract them for the hours that you want them to work. For a smaller business, they help you grow.

Will a virtual assistant save me money?

VAs are very diverse and will have different skills. In the long run, a Virtual Assistant will help save you money by fact that you’re not employing somebody to work in your business. You won’t be paying for holidays, pensions, sick pay, National Insurance – all those extra employment costs. A VA will be contracted on either an hourly rate or a monthly retainer. A VA will be able to do the work much quicker than you would be able to do it. Even if you think, “I can learn it,” or, “I’ve got time to do it,” a good VA would do it in half the time. You are free to do the work and the job that you need to do to grow your business.
Often missed and something that is very valuable is a VA is a sounding board for you and your business. A VA is a sole trader or a small business too. They will understand your issues because they will have the same. It’s important to have a sounding board. To get some feedback. A VA will hold you accountable. Your VA might nag you a little bit to get things done. Their focus will be on growing your business. Giving you time back to do the things that you love, or the things that will grow your business.
