As a business owner or entrepreneur, it can sometimes seem like you barely get a minute to yourself. However, that doesn’t always have to be the case. There are certain tasks that you can ‘outsource’ in your business. Today we are going to look at what outsourcing is and how you can outsource to a Virtual Assistant.
What is Outsourcing?
Outsourcing is a term used in business to describe the process of assigning designated tasks to a third party company. Did you know that there are entire businesses focused on outsourcing? Their main offering to businesses is to carry out the tasks that would otherwise fall under their control. The are many benefits to outsourcing with the biggest being financial. As you are not employing these individuals you will not need to pay for the physical office space nor pay their salary including PAYE or pension contributions.
What Are My Options?
Today we’re going to look at how you can outsource your work to VA’s or Virtual Assistants. Virtual Assistants are assistants that are there to help you out with a range of tasks in your business that you currently carry out yourself, but they may be time-consuming. The tasks a VA can carry out for you range from VA to VA so it is important that you find the right one for you.
How can a VA Help?
- Help realign your budget – due to only paying for the work undertaken you can save a considerable amount of money
- A Virtual Assistant will be able to take away the non-essential or non-income producing tasks allowing you to focus on growing your business
- Flexibility: Most Virtual Assistants have flexible working hours meaning that they can work around your schedule. This can help you maximise performance and productivity.
Alleviating all of this stress can also have a positive benefit on your mental health. It can help reduce the headaches that are sometimes caused when you’re trying to balance these administrative tasks alongside trying to promote your business and keep the sales flowing. This means that when you are at work you’re going to be more productive and less stressed, and when you’re not at work you’re going to be able to relax and enjoy yourself more.
