Do you keep adding tasks to your to do list faster than you can cross them off? Well, I have the answer to all your problems... a virtual assistant. Hiring a virtual assistant can save you so much time (....and headaches).
Now chances are if you're reading this you are curious about what a VA can do for you or maybe you don't even know what a VA is? A virtual assistant is a business professional you can hire to help you out with your daunting to do list. This way you have more time to focus on what you love. Here are 11 tasks you can delegate to a VA.
1. social media management
Social media marketing is a great way for a business to reach a wide target and grow their audience. You can hire a VA to write content for posts, create a schedule of posts and then respond/interact with your followers. Some virtual assistants specialize in social media strategy as well.
2. email management
As a business owner I know just how crazy it can be keeping up with emails and making sure to respond in a timely manner. So why not hire a VA to take care of this! They can manage your email, organize it, respond to general questions and flag ones that need your attention. Think about how much time this will save you!
3. email marketing
Not only can a VA help manage your email, they can also help create catchy emails that your audience will want to read. Email marketing is a great way to turn leads into customers, but it can be very time consuming. Using email marketing programs like MailChimp or ConvertKit, a VA can set up promotions and organize contact lists to make your life a little bit easier!
4. marketing graphics
Most virtual assistants specialize in graphic creation. So why not have your VA create eye catching graphics for you to use on social media platforms. You name it and chances are your VA can create it!
5. power point/pdf creation
All businesses need to create PDFs and Powerpoints. This too can be passed along to your VA. Simply provide the content and let your VA design everything. Talk about giving you more time to do what you love!
6. survey/form creation
Need a form created for your business or even a survey/quiz? You guessed it, you can hire a VA for this too! Quizzes are very popular right now and a perfect way for a business owner to get to know their potential client. (Elevenly tip!: this can be a great way to grow your email list, a simple "we will email your results" and BOOM! your email list will grow)
7. online research
You can hire a VA to research a specific topic or find influencers to test your product. All you need to do is let your VA know the topic they should research and they will run free, searching all over the internet while you focus on other parts of your business.
8. blog management
This is another popular service to hire a VA for. You can spend the time writing the post and then pass it along to your VA to handle the rest; uploading it to your site, formatting it to match your branding, adding keywords and tags, and optimizing the post for SEO. There are even some VAs who will write blog posts for you!
9. schedule management
As the name implies, a VA can act as your personal assistant. Don't stress about managing your calendar, scheduling meetings/webinars and making travel plans. Delegate all this to a virtual assistant!
10. data entry
Data entry can be very time consuming, so why not pass this task off to a VA. They can import, organize and even analyze the data for you.
11. landing page creation
A landing page is a single webpage designed solely with the intent for a conversion; most commonly to grow your email list. Your VA can create different landing pages depending on what is going on with your business at the time.
I could keep going with more and more tasks you could delegate to a virtual assistant! Pretty much, if a specific task is bogging you down you can find a VA that would love to help you out.
