A Virtual Assistant, (like me!) is someone that you hire to take some of the daily, tedious work off of your plate so you have more time to dedicate to the rest of your business. It is estimated that successful entrepreneurs spend up to 10 hours that can be delegated or outsourced. These are the non-revenue producing hours such as the time spent in relationship maintenance and connecting with others, answering email and client support requests.
By hiring a virtual assistant, you can increase your productivity by removing the smaller, time-consuming tasks and allow you to focus on more of the big picture stuff. Because you’re in the day-to-day life of your business, it can be hard to imagine handing daily tasks off to someone else.
A Virtual Assistant can take care of your email inbox
There are 5 billion email accounts worldwide, and an average of 129 emails daily for each person, just imagine how many a business owner gets on average? Studies show that on average emails are checked once an hour. With guidance, this can be delegated and automated to decrease your need to answer many emails.
