What were you struggling with in your business that led you to begin working with a virtual assistant?
We were having a few issues that virtual assistants have really helped us with. Namely having workers be available around the clock. As the majority of our virtual assistants are in different time zones, it allows our US workers to come in and pick up where they left off during normal business hours here.
Tell us a little bit about what you have delegated and how you work together?
We outsourced the creation of content, backlinks, customer service and more to our virtual assistants. Many have become a vital part of keeping our well oiled machine running smoothly!
How has working with a virtual assistant supported your business, and you personally?
Absolutely! it has allowed me to expand my business and has cut down on overheads.
What differences have you noticed in your business since you began working with a virtual assistant?
Everything runs a bit faster as we are working 24 hours a day versus working 9 to 5 or 9 to 9!
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs seeking virtual assistants?
Take your time and use a good service to find them. There is a bit of a learning curve as they adapt and learn what you expect of them but it is worth putting in the effort to train your team.
