Plan Now for the Busy Months Ahead

Regardless of when the busiest time is for your business, the late fall and early winter months can be a busy time for most people. With the holidays and end-of-year preparations, there can be little extra time to get everything done that is needed each week to make your business thrive. Taking stock now of what needs to be done and having a plan of attack can help you manage the heavy workload, especially with the help of your Virtual Assistant. Here are some tasks to consider adding to your VA’s to-do list:

  • Tax records. Now is a good time to begin preparing for the end-of-year sprint towards tax time. Your VA can help you organize your tax receipts and save them to the cloud for easy access come January.
  • Holiday planning. If you host a holiday party for your employees or clients each year, get your reservations and menu planned now with the help of your VA. It is easier now to get the best venues and dates before they are booked for the holidays.
  • Family traveling. Planning a trip during the holidays? Your VA can research the best dates and fares for flying, motels and rental cars so that your trip is secured at the best rates.
  • Seasonal marketing. Depending on your industry, you may have some opportunities ahead to promote your business for seasonal specials. Get ready by stockpiling blogs, social media posts, images and other materials that your VA can gather for you for future marketing.
  • Get organized. It is easy over the course of the year to get behind on organization tasks. Get caught up with the help of your VA to clear out your email, organize digital files and prioritize your calendar.
  • 2015 planning. Get your plan in place to make 2015 a spectacular year for your business. Your VA can assist in marketing and business planning for the year ahead. Have your VA pull together all the analytical data on your marketing to see what is working and what needs to be changed for 2015.

Getting a plan for the months ahead will help you manage the last quarter of the year with less stress and higher gains. Let your VA take on some of these extra tasks to make the rest of 2014 go as smooth as possible while preparing your business for the year to come.
