There are so many things that you personally have to take care of but what do you do when you don’t have the time to do the non-essential tasks yourself. You outsource yourself.
Sometimes the Virtual Assistant is in need of a Virtual Assistant but where do you look? You have to realize that this is a business and you really have to treat it as such. Accounting, Marketing, Advertising and all the things needed to run a successful business. Sometimes it can be more than one person can handle OR it really isn’t your expertise.
I personally use another VA to help me with my accounting practices. It definitely has SAVED me money because of all the things that I am not aware of in tax deductions and reporting. If you keep up with your accounting practices, it will make tax time easy and you’ll get the most out of your deductions.
Here are some indicators that you may indeed need some help:
1.Is your website constantly being updated (blog, testimonials, ads, samples)
2.Is your accounting up to date? (accounts receivable/payables, expense reports, receipts, mileage)
3.Do you feel like your clients are not getting the service you would like them to have?
4.Social Marketing taking up too much time? (Twitter, FaceBook, Forums, Google Analytics)
5.Advertising/Marketing goals not up or non-existent?
These are just the top 5 reasons you should consider.
Now the next thing to so is fining a VA who will work with you and one you can trust. The best place to find other VA’s and network with them are on the forums. The best one’s out there are VAnetworking.com and Virtualassistantforums.com. You can also take a look at Elance for all your technical aspects.
