What were you struggling with in your business that led you to begin working with virtual assistants?
Finding the right team in the Web industry is hard. High quality local designers with good attitudes and quality design ability are rare. When you do find them they stay for a period but end up leaving to start their own gig as soon as they have enough experience. Finding longer-term workers for Sites By Design was a struggle. Taking on employees is also an expensive and stressful task.
Tell us a little about what you have delegated and how you work together?
We have delegated our Web Administration, Web Design and project management to virtual workers. Not only are they hard workers but their work is great quality as well. Now I am free to focus on what I love doing – Sales & SEO.
How has working with a virtual assistant supported your business, and you personally?
Working with my Virtual Team has freed up my time to focus on more work ON my business and given me back time with my family.
What differences have you noticed in your business since you started working with a virtual assistant?
My clients now deal direct with my project manager and websites just get done – without all of the stress that can sometimes be associated with web design.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs seeking virtual assistants?
If you're going to look into getting your business Virtual Assistants, ensure you really think out what you want them to be doing; draw up a two-column sheet, one side put the jobs that could be done offshore and the other side put the jobs you cannot. Think about it seriously before jumping into it. Then choose your nation, ensure you understand their local economy and what people are paid. Ensure you know the local requirements for employers and when the national holidays are – so you won't get a shock.
