As we can all see, hear and feel around us. Things are tough in the labour market. Hundreds are losing their jobs and organisations are suffering on under resourced trying to keep their heads above water, especially small to medium businesses. Hiring freezes are on and the costs associated with taking on another employee can make small business owners think twice about getting help - even though additional help is desperately what they need. For some struggling small businesses there is no choice, they simply cannot afford another person so business owners are forced to work longer hours and probably are not doing what they do best and that’s promote and sell their business.
An affordable alternative to hiring an employee, for a small business, is a Virtual Assistant – through Virtual Angels of course!
Essentially, we will find you a highly productive, professional who works off site saving you time and money. The virtual worker is available on an as-needs basis – whether it be 2 or 20 hours a week. A virtual assistant can answer the phones once they’ve been re-directed, coordinate diary’s, design and deliver marketing campaigns, organise travel, proofread and format documents and presentations, update blogs and create newsletters, handle customer support, transcribe dictation, create a new website or logo and keep your book-keeping and accounts in order, and much, much more. If it can be done remotely using phone, Internet, email, and/or fax, a virtual assistant can take care of it.
I think it’s a shame more small businesses do not know this amazing assistance is available to them. For small and soloist business owners trying to keep costs down, there isn't a more low risk and affordable way to get work done and continue growing through this recession.
