Save Time: Delegate Those Holiday Details

The halls are about to be decked with a plethora of holiday décor. This is the busiest time of year for most people and most businesses. The demands made on your time can seem overwhelming as the steamroller of duties and responsibilities hums in the background bearing down on you. Ease the stress of the season by choosing to delegate those holiday details and save time for yourself. You may be thinking, but there is so much to be done and it has to be done right! It does take guts to let go and delegate; this is the time to use your guts.

Learn to prioritize your to do list by making distinctions between the things that require your personal attention and those that can be delegated to others. For example you may want to compose the holiday greetings that go out to your customers, colleagues, friends and family. There are a variety of online greeting card companies that you can choose from to help with this task. You create the greetings, some may be more personalized than others, then send them out to the designated recipients. Some companies will allow you to do a merge with your contact list while others may require you to input information. But, you don’t have time to go through the lists and put in all that information.

This is where delegation comes in. Suppose you don’t have anyone handy to turn the task over to? You’ll find a wealth of help in a virtual assistant. For individuals and small businesses the VA is indispensable. Your virtual assistant can help with all your correspondence and so much more. Your celebrations will be full of cheer when you delegate those holiday details to a qualified, efficient VA.

Make the most of this time of year. Position your business for growth in your customer base through seasonal sales and promotions. You’ll need to develop materials and get the word out. It’s not too late to tap into the expertise of a virtual assistant to get the job completed. Unless you are dead set on doing it yourself, delegate the designing of materials to someone else and hand off the dissemination of the information to another.

Check out the variety of services offered by virtual assistants. You can get help with scheduling, managing your office affairs, writing and editing correspondence and event planning details; all this and more. Using a virtual assistant can effectively add hours to your day and this is definitely the time of year you can use those extra hours.

Imagine, with wise delegation you can free up time to cultivate more customers if that’s your goal or catch up on things that you’ve had to put off due to time constraints. The best part about delegating to others during the holidays is that you’ll free up valuable time to spend with your family and friends enjoying the festive days. And everyone knows the best gift of all is the gift of time.
