These days, the word outsourcing is viewed in a whole new light, maybe it’s because of the new NBC TV show “outsourced”. Well, you do not have to own a company that manufactures novelty goods in order to enjoy the benefits of outsourcing.
If you run a small or large business and you need to get certain tasks done, outsourced virtual assistants (also fondly referred to as VA’s) will be of great help to you.
Here are just some of the benefits that outsourced VA’s can offer you:
·They only charge you ONLY for the amount of time that they have spent working for you.
·Virtual assistants will use their own equipments and stuff – you do not have to shell out money to buy a new headset, monitor, software etc.
·You do not have to deal with paying sick workers (who may or may not be actually sick), employee compensation, retirement funds, and employment insurance.
·You can kiss agency fees goodbye. Temping agencies usually charge a fee in order to work with them.
·You can take advantage of the time zone differences. While you are sleeping your virtual assistant is working you.
·Thankfully, you also do not have to worry about footing the training cost for specialized skill, why? Because outsourced virtual assistants are already well trained.
Here are just some of the tasks that outsourced virtual assistants can carry out effectively:
i.They can add press pages to your company’s web site – if your company’s site doesn’t have a press page, then add a press page now! Outsourced VA’s can even create a press page and go on to add links to the articles that feature your business on a day to day or weekly basis – it’s your call.
ii.You can also delegate the responsibility of the distribution of your company’s articles and press releases to variety of directories to your virtual assistant. You of course know that it is important to write articles and press releases on a regular basis, but writing these articles and press releases will not mean squat if they are not read by the right audience. Outsourced virtual assistants will help you distribute them to various directories online.
iii.Virtual assistants can help translate your website to another language. For instance, if you are doing business with Spanish speaking people, a virtual assistant who is very fluent in Spanish can translate your website into Spanish.
