Attention small business owners!
May 6, 2019 / By Terri Boote
Attention small business owners! Yes, outsourcing is the name of our game, but we understand if you feel like you have things under control; that you don’t need to pay someone else to do it for you. While we don’t doubt that you do indeed have things running like clockwork, we would politely like to point out that your incredible talents are likely being wasted on basic admin tasks that a VA could do. If you’re still not convinced to outsource things that will free up your time to focus on more essential objectives (like turning bigger profits and growing your business) maybe this will change your mind.
There is something you can outsource that has the potential to pay for itself 100 times over; something so clever that you’d be doing your business a disservice by not looking into it. What the heck am I talking about? I’ll tell you! If you only ever outsource one task, let it be automation. Getting a VA in to assess your methods and systems, and subsequently making recommendations for tools and programmes that automate whopping great chunks of your business processes is INCREDIBLY SMART BUSINESS. How? I’ll tell you that too!
Something that we have encountered quite frequently with our clients is business support systems that are no longer fit-for-purpose. This inefficiency dilemma often comes about because the small business started very small and has grown significantly (in terms of staff, clients, or both). Managing the finances using an Excel spreadsheet or filling out invoices using a Microsoft Word template was fine in the beginning, but now that things have picked up, it has become an utterly ridiculous waste of what could be highly productive time.
You might be VERY surprised at the number of ways our VA team can help. Once your VA puts the new automation systems in place, in addition clawing back hours in your workday, you could notice other huge benefits. These benefits might include increased communication, a larger capacity to generate profit, faster product/service turn-around times for your clients, and vital insights into areas such as sales and marketing that could change the way you do business forever.
There are genius apps and tools for so many of the business systems that you use every day. From customer relationship management databases and project management solutions, through to bookkeeping programmes that seamlessly integrate with a host of other clever apps. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know which of your systems and processes are clunky and out-of-date either! Our tech-smart VA’s will get to the root of the issues in no time at all and can help you slice and dice away the dead weight that is holding your business back.
As Virtual Assistants, we often have many clients to look after, so our ability to get more done in a short space of time is vital. We are continually looking for faster, better ways of working to deliver service excellence and to free up our own time to fit in more clients. This relentless striving for increased efficiency has helped us build up a unique automation knowledge bank, as well as developing a set of expertise that you really can’t find anywhere else. Yes, we live and breathe efficiency, so automation is a massive part of the solution that helps us achieve this. It makes sense to us to share these game-changing automation upgrades with our clients because a less stressful, more productive world is better for everyone!
With service plans from as little as two hours per week, plus a range of one-off service options, why not take advantage of our automation secrets?
