Types of Copy Writing for Your Business

It might be easy to imagine hiring a virtual assistant for general office administration tasks for your small business. Companies with brick and mortar often have accountants, bookkeepers and data entry done remotely by outsourced or subcontracted remote workers. Even though business owners must get products and services coordinated, use social media and marketing, and deal with high level decisions, they often don’t choose to hand off writing tasks to remote workers, currently referred to as virtual assistants, VAs. They naturally convince themselves that any writing or messaging from the company needs to be done by an officer, but this is just not true.

Working with VAs can make it possible for a self-employed business owner to go on a vacation without the business falling apart.
