Benefits to Hiring a Virtual Professional …
Back in my very first Virtually Untangled blog post of “Who are Virtual Assistants”. Today will be a spin-off on why hiring a virtual professional can benefit your business. A virtual professional is not the same as a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant provided professional creative (social), technical and/or administrative assistance to clients remotely, however a virtual professional can provide those tasks to your business and so much more than that. Depending on skill set, a virtual professional can create websites, graphic design, logo designs, vectorized illustration, social media profiles all the while maintaining them on your behalf as well as other technology and online related tasks.
Hire virtually you say? How could it benefit you? Well let me tell you …
Virtual professionals do not require any office space as they have our own home-based offices fully equipped with all the necessary equipment. And if you’re a tech-geek like myself, we are totally stocked with all the programs, apps, resources and tools to accomplish your needs quicker and in style. So, great news … you won’t need to provide us with space or technology to do our jobs, therefore YOU SAVE MONEY!
Virtual professionals are just an email, zoom meeting or phone call away so you have full access to your project needs right away and don’t have to wait. You are also not bothered by geographical restrictions so will have access to the very best talent world-wide. If you wanted you could even hire based upon projects needed (e.g. graphic designer for marketing, website designer, social media guru and an admin. Assistant for office duties) to level out the expertise and get things done quicker. Or perhaps even be lucky enough to find just one talented individual who has an array of skills under their belt to take care of it all. Therefore, YOU SAVE TIME!
Virtual professionals are like having an extra support system for items you many not have time to do, like to do or perhaps even the skillset to accomplish. You will no longer have to worry about ”finding time” to rush through a project just because you do not like it and saved it for last or maybe even forgot about it because your to-do list is way too big. Or maybe you are even looking for that extra hour (we all know does not exist) to take a course or webinar just to complete a project you may not acquire all the knowledge to accomplish. Therefore, YOU SAVE TIME.
Are you seeing a theme here yet?
Virtual professionals take care of all their own expenses (e.g. benefits, vacation or even losing valuable hours due to illness) and you are only billed for time spent on projects, not time spent at the office. So again, great news … you will not need to add another worry to your to-do list about paying for what I like to call “idle time” which is time “wasted” by an in-house employee waiting for the next project to come to their attention. Or for them to get off their Pinterest break (haha – trust me, I’ve seen it happen). They can also take the overflow off your shoulders so you can concentrate on what matters most … your bigger picture! So, therefore YOU SAVE MONEY AND TIME! BONUS!
Now with all that being said, I cannot speak for everyone but virtual professionals are usually in this type of business because they are passionate about what they do, therefore they are dedicated 100% to working WITH YOU to help you succeed in accomplishing your overflowing to-do list, your vision and your end-game goals. So ideally, it’s a win-win situation … They get to have a career they could have only dreamed of by fulfilling their passion on an everyday capacity and you get your business needs met at an exceptional level.
Now granted, we are not entrepreneurial superwoman (or man) but with clear communication and collaboration we can help take you business to the next level. We can decrease your workload so you have more time to do what you need, your stress load so you have more time to fulfill your passions and have you getting back to a happy work-life balance in no time.
So, what are you waiting for?
Seize the opportunity and get your dream result in no time!
