Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

Focus on Your Revenue

What’s holding you back from growing your company? Money? Time? Hiring a Virtual Assistant is the solution for both of these problems. Whether you are just starting your company or looking to grow your existing business, outsourcing tasks and working with a team can help you in so many ways.

In the book “Never Check E-mail in the Morning,” Julie Morgenstern writes that owners should always asks themselves; “Is this close the revenue line?” If it’s not, you shouldn’t be doing it or at most only do things that are one or two steps from that revenue line. That’s why you bring in help. Traditional staffing can be expensive, you have to worry about equipment, insurance, vacation time, etc., etc., but with a virtual team, you only pay for the time spent on your task(s).

When I first became a VA, I didn’t realize all the ways I could help a company, but the possibilities are really limitless! I work with a variety of customers, from dentists, coaches, stylists, website developers, wedding planners – to name just a few. So you can see it doesn’t really matter what you do, a virtual team can help you. Let me give you just a little sample of some of the things I did last week:

• Acted as an online support agent for a software program
• Wrote blog posts to help promote a new website
• Obtained insurance quotes for business insurance
• Social media management
• Wrote and sent out ezines
• Answered customer service phone calls
And so much more!

Now, of course you can do all of this yourself, but then when would you have time to grow your business, meet with prospective customers, and do things that are close to the revenue line?

As a business owner time is one of your most important assets and you must use it wisely. Starting a new company is a great time to start working with a virtual team. You can come up with all the big ideas and let CVA do the work. You can outsource your website creation or redesign, work with a professional writer to help you publish an e-book or company brochure, and even use the services of a project manager to ensure your product launch goes off without a hitch.

Imagine – where could your business be right now if you didn’t have to worry about answering the phone every time it rings, making sure every link on your website is working, replying to every customer email that comes in? Can you really afford not to have a virtual team?
