Why a Virtual Assistant Should be a Part of Your New Small Business Plan

Are you planning on starting a new small business this year? As you create your business plan, there may be one option that you have not considered to incorporate into getting your new enterprise off the ground- a Virtual Assistant. There are many ways a Virtual Assistant can assist you to ensure that your business gets off to a running start, making it a worthwhile investment.

Your Own Research and Development Team

Starting a business takes an enormous amount of time, money and research. Most entrepreneurs starting a small business cannot afford their own R & D team to research product, service and competition information. However, a VA is an affordable option to compile all the information you need to ensure your new business will be competitive in your market.

Creating Your Marketing Plan

Our Virtual Assistants are marketing experts, especially when it comes to digital and social media marketing. Let your VA build your social media profiles and begin getting the word out for your new business before opening day. Whether you are starting a brick and mortar businesses or just moving into self-employment, your VA can help start spreading the word about your business through digital marketing.

Administrative Tasks

While you are busy getting ready to open your business, you may not have time for the tedious administrative duties that need to be handled. Let your VA manage your email, compile your expenses and even help with hiring your new team. Your time is better spent handling the details that need your expertise, not wading through emails, doing phone interviews and checking references.

Managing the Legalities

One of the worst parts of starting a business is all the red tape you must go through. You may need a business license, insurance, permits and many other industry-specific certifications to begin your business. Let your Virtual Assistant manage these many legalities, gathering information, checking on the status of applications and getting you everything you need to meet your opening deadlines.

Having someone you can count on to partner with you while you begin your new business can save you time and money. The quicker you can open for business, the sooner you can begin generating revenue. Make sure to include the help of a Virtual Assistant in your new business plan, and good luck on your new adventure!
