Did you know Virtual Assistants do more than administrative tasks? In fact, a VA can offer support in all aspects of their client’s business.

This is their Superpower! Hiring a VA, gives you more knowledge and experience but what zones of genius do you need? Let’s discuss.
The Creative Virtual Assistant
Perhaps you need help with creativity! Creative VAs offer support in all things…creative. The scope of work can be vast and filled with a variety of different tasks. They come in many shapes and sizes, specialising in a number of different niches and industries. Take a look at some examples you can specialise in.
Social Media Marketing
These are just a few of the many things you could delegate to a creative VA. Not only is it extremely fun, it also brings incredible results and can lead to exponential growth, which is particularly satisfying.
The Administrative Assistant
The VA with a passion for paperwork! The Admin Assistant typically helps with general office management and admin tasks that can take up a lot of time for their clients and often take them away from the areas of their business that need them. What does it entail?
Contracts and Legal Paperwork
The list goes on, but the ultimate goal is to free up your time by letting them take care of the backend business. It’s common to find that some businesses (not all) hire VA’s for specific admin tasks such as Bookkeeping, Data Entry, Market Research and Personal Assistance.
The Marketing Assistants
The content connoisseur focus is to support clients with their marketing efforts to increase brand awareness and growth. Marketing VAs generally specialise in these areas:
Social Media Marketing
Search Engine Optimisation
Marketing a business can be extremely time-consuming and a lot for one person to wrap their head around. It is a full time job in itself and not so easy to keep up with alongside so many other responsibilities that come with running your business, especially if you don’t have a marketing background.
The Social Media Assistant
Similar to a Marketing VA, with the difference that a social media assistant solely focuses on social media management and design tasks such as:
Account set-up and optimisation
Market research and audience outreach
The growth of your account
Social media is one of the best ways to market your business for free and gives you a direct line of communication with audiences and customers. Social media is an essential part of modern-day marketing, and social media assistants are highly sought after.
The Tech Assistant
The go-to for all of your technical needs. You can’t be an expert in everything, this VA could be the one for you. A technical VA can help with tasks like…
Software and Plugin updates
Streamlining and systemising
All are necessary for a business to run smoothly but only a few examples of many. These tasks can be difficult, time-consuming and stressful. If they are done incorrectly, they won’t work, which is why there is such a huge need for Tech VAs as well.
