What can a Virtual Assistant do for your business?

Are you looking for some administration help in your SME? Perhaps you're struggling with time and find admin really mundane? I've got you covered when it comes to all things admin, social media, and web design!

What can I do for your SME as a Virtual Assistant?!

I’ll be honest.

A more appropriate title here would be – “What can’t I do as a Virtual Assistant for you?”

As I mentioned earlier, there’s a a number of things you can outsource to me.

It’s far too many to list down here, so we’re just going to cover the most common virtual assistant work I can do for you

1) Administrative Work

You can hire me (your Virtual Assistant) to be…

*cue drumroll*

Your Virtual Assistant.

I can take over all the business duties that a typical administrative assistant does.

That entails:

  • Diary management – Scheduling meetings and appointments
  • Answering phone calls
  • Basic data entry
  • Organizing your to-do list and calendar
  • Booking travel arrangements

Basically anything that an administrative assistant usually does.

The only difference here is that I don’t have a desk in front of your office.

Apart from that – it’s pretty much the same thing as a typical administrative assistant.

2) Personal Tasks

You can always hire me to help out with tasks in your personal life as well.

Here are a few examples:

  • Organizing your personal to-do list and calendar
  • Booking travel arrangements for weekend trips or vacations.
  • Helping you make purchases – gifts, books, stationary, hardware and perhaps even clothes!

As a lot of these tasks don’t need to be done by someone in-person, they can easily be outsourced to a VA instead.

3) Content Creation

Content writing has propelled itself to the top of the digital marketing ladder in recent years.
There’s a reason why large corporations put out blog posts often. It helps boost their search engine optimization and drive traffic to their website.

Having someone oversee this process can be a great digital marketing decision on your part.
If you have a blog that puts out new blog posts on a regular basis, you will:

  • Have more people finding it on search engines
  • Have more of them clicking on it and visiting your website
  • Have more conversions as a result

The problem is, content creation isn’t easy. In addition to writing, there are a bunch of specific tasks like research, finding and editing images, uploading articles to your blog and so on.

That’s why it’s a good idea to outsource your blog posts to a virtual assistant. You can either outsource the ancillary tasks like images or uploads or the entire process.

For example, an increasing number of agents and brokers are using virtual assistants for their real estate marketing activities – including content creation, organizing open houses, social media and so on.

Outsourcing it to only one person ensures that each piece of content has a personal touch and doesn’t dip in quality.

4) Social Media Management

Social media is a very important tool in your marketing plan.

It’s where many of your potential customers are going to notice and engage with you. However, most companies appear distant and disconnected with their potential customers – your social media presence can change this.

If you don’t have the bandwidth to handle social media accounts why not outsource it to a VA?
I’ll be in charge of these specific tasks:

  • Creating content to share on your social media accounts
  • Scheduling posts
  • Engaging with your followers
  • Analyzing statistics and reports

Your social media accounts need to be able to connect with people while staying relevant.

I can keep track of what’s going viral, monitor interactions and analyze statistics to see what converts best.

You can say goodbye to worrying about your social media platform stats and engagement.

5) Email Management

We’ve all been there.

Opened our inbox to see an army of unopened emails staring at you.

Responding to all those emails can be mammoth task. But it has to be done – if you just leave this repetitive work as it is, you’d be in trouble.

That’s why a lot of businesses and entrepreneurs outsource this to VAs like me now:

  • I can sift through all your mail to weed out any spam that’s crept in
  • I can answer job inquiries, general questions and follow-ups
  • I can organize and filter your inbox
  • I can carry out email marketing campaigns and manage email lists

The result?

Your email inbox is still fully functional – without you having to do anything about it.

At this point, it’s clear that having me as a virtual team member can be of great assistance to you.

I can boost your productivity, take routine stuff off your hands, manage travel arrangements – the list goes on.
