Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

Money Well Spent

Recently a local company let go of several valued employees due to lack of work.  All were hard working and dedicated but there just wasn’t enough work.  One of two administrative assistants was released.  The remaining assistant is now overworked and overwhelmed.  The company could neither justify nor afford two full-time assistants, but now they are swamped, behind, and feeling the pain of the loss.

Paperwork, certain projects, newsletters, customer emails, web maintenance, etc. could be handled by a Virtual Assistant.  The in-office employee could accomplish all of the necessary “hands on” tasks and pass the remaining tasks to a VA.  It is; obviously, much less costly to pay for an assistant for a few hours a day or per project.

The company still needs a receptionist and an assistant in the building to take care of the salesmens’ immediate needs and to answer phones, make copies, run errands etc.  She could use the additional help for projects that can be “outsourced” and sent back via the amazing internet.  Many of the salesmen and project managers use powerpoint presentations, send newsletters, even have the administrative assistants answer their emails.  All of these tasks could easily be delegated to an off-site Virtual Assistant.

Not only will the salesmen and the corporate executives and project managers be happy, but the in-house administrative assistant is not bogged down.  The work is being completed in a timely manner and each task is getting the attention that it deserves.  Now the in-office employee is calm and much more productive and effective AND all the required tasks are being completed.  For a few well-spent dollars, the office is now back to running like a well-oiled machine.

Cutting costs and downsizing are terms we are going to be hearing for months to come.  We all are feeling the sting of the recent economic downturn.  Work still has to be completed and customers are still relying on you.  You can justify spending wisely.  As they say, you have to spend money to make money and if you put your money to a Contemporary Virtual Assistance Virtual Assistant, you are not spending money, you are making an invetstment in your company.  We are all looking to see returns on our investments.  Make CVA  part of your business, even Wall Street insiders will be jealous.
