What Can Virtual Assistants Do?

It could be easier to ask what Virtual Assistants can not do. They can do most jobs, and this has been made more evident during the pandemic. Globally there has been a recent increase in people working from home, or getting disinterested with their full time job. 

Trying to expand a business while juggling many roles is a common challenge for today’s businesspeople. Whether from time constraints to complete tasks or finances to employ extra full-time staff, this could negatively affect the business’s efficiency and productivity. Hence, hiring a virtual assistant is a wise option.  There are probably several jobs that you do on a daily basis that you do not enjoy, or that take up valuable time.  So the obvious question is…. Why do those jobs? 

What does a virtual assistant do? The range of services provided by virtual assistants varies considerably. If you want to outsource work to one for your benefit, choose the ideal virtual assistant.

1. Bookkeeping

Even if they aren’t a certified accountant, a virtual assistant can aid you with your accounts.  You can send invoices, make payments, assist with taxes, and handle payroll under one umbrella.

2. Marketing and Social Media

Virtual assistants may build a digital marketing plan, study where your target clients are online, offer digital marketing analytics, and identify industry-related online networks to join. VAs may also design email marketing campaigns and newsletters, boost social media followers, compose and plan tweets, and publish on social media.

3. Graphic design and video editing

Anybody can learn basic picture and video editing, but not all have the time. Hours may go by for even the simplest of edits. If you lack knowledge, the task will be delayed and you might have missed the opportunity. When it comes to the graphic arts, certain virtual assistants stand out. In most cases, they have expertise with at least one graphics program, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Creative Suite, Canva, Premiere Pro, etc.

4. Customer service

Management of a firm’s Customer relationship management system (CRM) is a demanding role in every business. Virtual assistants may manage and support your CRM, saving businesses time. They can assist in handling customer care tasks like responding to inquiries, updating website content, and keeping tabs on user activity across various social media channels. 

5. Special Project

Even if you don’t think you need a full-time VA, you may still utilize a VA service for a one-time project to help you get ahead. As long as it can be done virtually, you can find a freelancer willing to do VA related tasks.
