The career of the future

In these economic times, downsizing personnel and financial belt-tightening have become the norm. As a result, Virtual Assistants are fast becoming the answer to the outsourcing needs of business owners and individuals. Virtual Assistants can save businesses time and money by taking over many office support tasks remotely via phone, fax and internet based technology. From presentation creation and data entry to bookkeeping, event planning, research & sourcing and general office services they save you time and money.
A Virtual Assistant is different from the typical “Temp Agency Employee” in that there is no middle-man. You deal one-on-one and get personalized service; you know who you are dealing with from the beginning to end, ultimately building a relationship you can count on.
One of the benefits of working with a Virtual Assistant is that you only pay for the time you need them; which can be for as little as 15 minutes or 15 hours – or more! This could be for a special project, during your busy season, while a regular employee is out sick, on leave or on vacation, or because you don’t have enough work to hire an employee on a full or part-time basis. All you need to do is call or e-mail your VA and ask them to perform a job, just as you would an employee in your office.
A few of the other benefits are that a Virtual Assistant doesn’t occupy office space, use your equipment & supplies, requirebenefits or vacation time, sit idle between assignments or call in sick.
A Virtual Assistant can be a valuable part of your team, allowing you to concentrate on growing your business!
