The Advantages in Hiring Virtual Assistant

Advantages of hiring virtual help rather than a new in-office employee

Working from their own homes or offices, these entrepreneurs can save the small business owner money, time and effort among other resources. Here are some reasons why a small business may benefit from hiring a virtual assistant as opposed to a new-in-office employee:

  • First up a virtual assistant works from his/her own home or office. This is especially convenient if you are running a business from home or if you have limited space at your own office. Therefore you do not need to provide a physical workspace.
  • Virtual assistants use personal equipment to provide services to you. This is a huge saving as you do not need to provide costly office equipment. You are also saved the worries of dealing with the maintenance of any such equipment.
  • When you hire a virtual assistant as an independent contractor you do not have to deal with payroll, taxes, pensions or benefits such as medical insurance etc. You also have the added benefit of hiring them just for a particular project or task at hand, paying them at an hourly rate or by the project. This is more cost effective than hiring a full time employee.
  • Your business is safe from deliberate misuse such as personal telephone calls during office hours or overtime costs due to lack of productivity.
  • You do not have to worry about extra staff added on to your payroll during seasonal or peak activity time.
  • You are not responsible for any educational assistance as most virtual assistants are well educated, computer proficient and have already performed most of the services they provide earlier and are familiar with the workings around in an office environment.
  • Typically virtual assistants do not charge overtime for any work that has a specific deadline as they work on expandable schedules.
  • A virtual assistant is perfect for handling any periodical or seasonal projects you may have. Again saving you time, money and resources.
  • One of the more obvious advantages of hiring a virtual assistant is that you never have to worry about sick leaves, vacation and time offs.
  • Since virtual assistants depend on regular clients and referrals they are definitely more dedicated and committed in their quality of work. A good referral means more business for a virtual assistant.
  • Lastly if you have a specific task that requires a specific skill then you have the option of hiring a virtual assistant who has that particular skill set. A full time or new-in-office employee may not be skilled and training takes times and money.

Going by the many and varied advantages that a virtual assistant offers it is easy to see why a small business may benefit from hiring a virtual assistant over a full time or new-in-house employee.

What is Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant is a temporary worker who works for businesses over the internet. The employer may be at a great distance from the assistant. All the work is performed remotely. the goods and to distinguish them from the goods of others. A servicemark is the same as a trademark except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. (www.cybercitymommies.com)

Virtual Assistants (typically abbreviated to VAs), are business owners who provide professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients — usually other independent entrepreneurs and consultancy small businesses. Virtual Assistants work from their own office (hence "virtual"), thus making it a fairly popular (and growing) profession in centralized economies with "fly-in, fly-out" (FIFO) staffing practices. It is estimated that there are as few as 5,000-8,000 or as many as 35,000 Virtual Assistants worldwide.
Common modes of communication and data delivery include the Internet, e-mail and phonecall conferences,online work spaces, and fax machine. Professionals in this business work on a contractual basis and a long-lasting cooperation is standard. Typically 5 years of administrative experience in an office is expected at s uch positions as executive assistant, office manager/supervisor, secretary, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, real estate assistant, et cetera.
Virtual assistant may also refer to an automated Conversational agent or so-called Chatterbot. (www.wikipedia.com)
