10 Ways To Maximize Your Virtual Assistant’s Talents

Most people decide to hire a Virtual Assistant for a specified task or a limited amount of time, without considering all the ways these talented people can help them in their business. You may have been looking for someone to just help with a product launch or maybe get your social media pages updated; however, now that you have a VA, there are some other ways they can be of service. Consider these 10 options on ways to utilize your VA.

  1. Email overload. Email can be a major distraction and time killer. Let your VA take over management of your inbox, freeing up hours of your time every week.
  2. Handle your social media pages. Your VA can be your eyes in the sky, keeping watch over your social media interactions, responding to customers and adding new posts.
  3. Organize your files. Get your digital files in order with the help of your VA, making it easier when it comes time to do your end-of-year taxes.
  4. Website cleanup. Does your website need to be updated with new images or content? Your VA can give your website the mini-facelift it needs.
  5. Manage email marketing. Have an email marketing campaign that is taking too much of your time? Your VA can manage your campaign for you through MailChimp, AWeber or whatever program you use.
  6. Add new blogs. Make sure your blog is constantly brimming with new content by using the talents of your VA.
  7. Manage your schedule. Your VA can confirm meetings, coordinate your calendar and keep your schedule organized.
  8. Plan your trip. A Virtual Assistant is there to help in all capacities, including your personal tasks. Delegate your trip preparations to your VA, whether its for business or pleasure.
  9. Organize your company party. Planning a seasonal party in the next few months? Have your VA begin researching venues now to get the best dates.
  10. Online customer service. Differentiate your company with excellent online customer service with the help of your VA. Initiate online chat for your customers that your VA can manage for you.


These are just a few of the many ways your Virtual Assistant can help reduce the workload on your plate, allowing you to spend more time growing your business. It is their job and pleasure to help you in any way they can, so make the most of their many talents.
