5 Ways a Virtual Assistant Can Help Your Small Creative Business
As a creative business owner, it can often feel like you’re spinning a dozen plates. The idea of following your passion and making a living from it sounds ideal. But when you have admin, sales, marketing, and a million other jobs to keep on top of, you may start to feel a little disenchanted.
What if there was a way to take the pressure off so you can focus on the heart of your business: the thing you love?
Here’s how a virtual assistant can help your creative business…
No matter what industry you work in, the organisation is key to success. A virtual assistant (VA) can carry out your day-to-day admin, ensuring all those loose ends are tied up and that you have everything you need to reach your goals. From ordering supplies and organising deliveries to scheduling client meetings, your VA can ensure you meet your deadlines with minimal stress.
Great organisation leads to increased productivity. Virtual assistants can handle email management, content scheduling, and invoicing. By using their time instead of yours, VAs can help you speed up your workflow and get projects completed in good time.
Outsourcing tasks that you don’t have time for or aren’t so confident with can be an excellent way to save money. Hiring a virtual assistant can free up your time so you can focus on growing your business and generating more revenue. They also have the know-how to put processes in place to save you money.
A remote social media assistant, for instance, has the skills to grow your online presence affordably and effectively, bringing more business to your website. What’s more, hiring a virtual assistant can be more cost-effective than hiring a full-time employee. Most work freelance and can support you with ongoing virtual assistant services or one-off projects.
Do you have lots of clients to correspond with? Perhaps you have queries from customers or need a hand keeping on top of social media inboxes and comments. Your VA can keep communication flowing, whether via email, social platforms or on the phone. Not only will your clients and customers appreciate prompt replies, but you’ll also have one less task to worry about.
The freedom to follow your passion
Most of all, hiring a virtual assistant allows you to focus on what you adore — whether that’s crafting, writing, designing or offering a unique service. After all, isn’t that why you started your creative business in the first place?
By taking on necessary but time-consuming tasks, VAs help you prioritise your workload in the way that best suits you and your goals.
