Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

5 Easiest Tasks to Delegate to a V.A.

Hiring a virtual assistant offers many advantages for your business, but it can be difficult to decide what tasks to hand off to them. Having had your hand on everything in your business, may make it hard to turn control over to someone else. With so much on your plate, you may not even know what to hand off. Here are some easy tasks to begin the delegation process with your virtual assistant.

  1. Social media management. Let’s face it; being on social media can be one big time suck, especially if you aren’t savvy with all the tools available to help with the process. Let your virtual assistant do the majority of your posting for you. You can still give input on what you want to post, but they can take the time to write and schedule the posts and report back on what kind of interaction your customers and audience need from you.
  2. Blog posts. Your website is often the first thing a potential customer sees when looking into your business. Keeping your website up to date is essential for your business to gain credibility. Posting updated blogs and relevant information about your business will be an easy task to hand off to your assistant.
  3. Inputting numbers and sending out invoices can be very time consuming. Let your virtual assistant do the bookkeeping work, while you focus on the more important tasks of keeping your business going. They can keep an eye on making sure invoices get sent out and paid on time.
  4. Travel arrangements. Your assistant will most likely know your schedule and the way you like things handled. Having that knowledge will make it easy for them to take care of the details for travel arrangements. Scheduling appointments, hotels, rental cars, and flights are all things that can be easily handled by a virtual assistant
  5. Mailing list management. Keeping an updated contact list is essential for keeping your business steady and growing. Your virtual assistant can save you time by doing all the data entry of your customers contact information. They can even do the work of grouping your contacts, so that you can target the right clients with the information you want to send out.

Growing your business will require focused time and energy from you. Delegating these smaller tasks to a virtual assistant will let you spend time on the more important things that only you, as a business owner, can do. This will help your business grow faster and in the right direction for success.
