10 benefits to having a Virtual Assistant
Are you thinking about hiring a Virtual Assistant, but not sure whether it would benefit you?
Virtual Assistants are becoming a lot more recognised worldwide for supporting busy businesses, instead of hiring in-house employees like Secretaries etc. There are lots of benefits to a Virtual Assistant, but when you don't have the time to spare it's hard finding extra time to research and help you decide on whether a Virtual Assistant is best for you.
I've designed a useful infographic for the busy business owner, like yourself, highlighting and breaking down some of the more important Virtual Assistant benefits.

Remote Set Up
Virtual Assistants, also known as VAs, already have a fully equipped home office and can support businesses around the world over the internet, so no need to spend money expanding your business and buying new equipment, or searching for someone local.
Having a VA on board gives you more time to focus ON your business instead of IN your business. You can outsource repetitive, mundane and time-consuming tasks, back end admin or tasks you don't know how to do, don't like to do or don't have the time to do.
Ultimately, having a VA gives you time to use elsewhere, so you can build your clientele; focus on other aspects of your business to grow and earn more money; or even have more time to spend at home doing the things you love, with less stress and worry. Who wouldn't want that?
With more time on your hands, you get to choose what you do with it and where you spend it!
Unlike with employees, Virtual Assistants are freelancers and pay for their own taxes, national insurance and pension. NO holiday pay, NO sick pay and NO bonus payments and you only pay for the time VAs spend on your tasks. NO paying for lunch time, NO coffee breaks or time not spent on your tasks.
VAs are flexible and work when you need them, either on a pay as you go basis, ongoing support or one off projects. When you're having a quiet month at work, you don't have to pay out money or find extra work for someone when you don't need it.
VAs have many years experience and lots of knowledge in different fields and programmes (even some that you may not know about) before they support you, so you won't have to spend ages teaching them. They may even be able to teach you some new tricks and help to streamline your business in ways you may not have thought before.
There are so many benefits to hiring a Virtual Assistant that can help businesses just like yours. If you had more time on your hands, what would you do with it?
