6 Ways a Virtual Assistant Can Help Boost Your Productivity

At the end of the week, where do you land when it comes to completing your business to-do list? Whether you make an actual list of goals for the week or have a mental tabulation, it can become apparent that you are falling behind on your tasks. The work week doesn’t always go as planned and as fires pop up that need your attention, your to-do list gets put to the wayside. What you need is someone to fill in the gaps and help cross some of those tasks off your list each week. Here are six ways a VA can help boost your productivity and keep you on track to meeting your goals.

  1. Managing your schedule. Just managing your own schedule can take up too much of your time. Let your VA handle managing your schedule by confirming appointments, sending out invites for meetings and any other time-consuming tasks.
  2. Clear out your inbox. The never-ending barrage of emails that you get each day can drain your time and hurt your productivity. Let your VA scan through your inbox and forward only the emails that need your immediate attention.
  3. Organizing your files. Organization can help increase your productivity; however, spending the time to organize a mess of digital files can be a waste of your expertise. Let your VA help organize your files to make it simpler and quicker to find what you need when you need it.
  4. Creating presentations. Let your VA put together the information you need for important presentations. Your VA is excellent at researching and gathering all the data you need, saving you time.
  5. Managing your social media platforms. Effective social media marketing means constantly monitoring feeds. Hand over your social media management to your VA to get the most out of your digital marketing efforts.
  6. Data entry. If you are inputting numbers yourself into spreadsheets, stop and delegate these types of tasks to your VA. Your expertise is in running your business, not typing in data and other mundane chores that take you away from more important projects that need your attention.

These are just a few of the many tasks that you can delegate to your Virtual Assistant to make every day more productive. Focus on spending your time doing the jobs that only you can do and leave the rest for your VA. It is the best way to make the most of every minute while you are growing your business.
