WHAT IS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT?
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is typically a self-employed administrator and or marketing professional who works remotely providing services to clients. Most VA’s will have a niche area that they will specialize in allowing you to hire for specific tasks or specific industry specialties.
WHY YOU SHOULD USE A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
Virtual Assistants are self-employed, so you do not have to worry about taxes, insurance and other overhead costs associated with having an in-house administrator. Also, there is no wasted money with downtime or trying to fill your administrator’s time. Virtual Assistants can be used on a per project basis or on an ongoing basis to outsource some of the time-consuming tasks so you can focus on what you need or want to. Some also provide certain concierge services such as party planning, vacation planning, etc. They typically work on a contract basis and can communicate via a number of resources such as email, conference/phone calls, and virtual workspaces.
