How can a small business use a VA

It is likely that a small business has one person doing ALL the jobs! From bookkeeping, data entry, marketing and organising meetings. When your to do list gets too long or you feel like you just can’t juggle it all anymore then you need a VA!

What jobs can a VA do that are of benefit to a small business?

The most common VA tasks are:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Data Entry
  • Social Media Admin
  • Event Coordination
  • Diary Management

You can use a VA as an extra pair of hands, organisation and administration is their expertise so they will be able to hit the ground running. They will be able to work with your existing systems, because of the nature of what a VA does they are likely to have worked with it before! Or they will be able to suggest a relevant system or database to help streamline processes further for you.

Using a VA can be a short or long term solution. You may use one to get you on top of a particular project or cover a period of time out from the business such as a holiday. Or you may not quite have the need to recruit an administrator but really do with the ongoing help on a regular basis.

What about start-ups using a VA?

VA’s are ideal for start ups who don’t have the financial resources to employee someone full time but could use their expertise to help get all aspects of their business off the ground. VA’s can also be really well connected and likely be able to put you in touch with other business experts that can help you.
