Know More About Virtual Assistants

By Ellie Jones Subscribe to RSS | April 26th 2012 | Views:

You must have heard a word “virtual assistant” these days a lot. Who actually are they? People sometimes confuse it with a freelancer. But it is not so. A virtual service provider provides specialized and administrative support according to the client’s needs and help to grow his business.

According to International Virtual Assistants Association-

“A virtual assistant (VA) is an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative or technical services. Utilizing advanced technical modes of communication and data delivery, a professional VA assists clients in his/her area of expertise from his/her own office on a contractual basis.”

Virtual assistants provide remote assistance to their clients. Because of this, it is generally misinterpreted that their role is not that important. Do not fall in this misconception as the work of a virtual professional actually contributes to the success of the client as it is quite crucial. Internet, email and phone call, and fax machine are the source of communication to such employees.

There is no particular field in which these professional provides their services. Having skills in a particular area, knowledge of computer language and software can create a long and impressive list of their services.

Individuals and corporations from all over the world are outsourcing their certain work so that they can find enough time for other revenue generating activities. He/she can handle your daily errands effectively be it attending calls, managing the database, organizing meetings and conferences, travel and transportation planning, research on different subjects and many more. Generally people outsource their work to virtual assistants in following areas:

Data entry

Administrative activities

Executive assistance

Personal assistance

Marketing assistance

Research help

Remote assistance

Hiring a virtual assistant for your business can never be a wrong decision for you. The benefits gained after hiring them are far more than the money invested. Having skills and expertise in their own field, their efforts always work for efficient and profitable running of business.

Flexibility and independence are other major benefits of this. Generally full time employees work for fixed hours for fixed days. Instead, a virtual professional can be hired according to the client’s requirement. It can be per hour, per day or on some contract basis.

No more extra expenditure on employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits, no more logistical problems like space, equipments or supply as the person works from a remote place. This saves resources of the company. As a virtual assistant works on different projects of their clients, he is always well versed with the latest and emerging market trends.

Due to the increase in the revenue figures of the corporations with the assistance of the virtual employees, a large number of companies have started virtual assistant services. They have a team of highly experienced, talented and skilled professionals working in different arenas as virtual service providers. Ensuring timely, quality and regular services, these services assure their clients of growth and improvement.
