By hiring a Virtual Assistant…
You SAVE over $60,000.00 per year!

Although the Virtual Assistant’s hourly rate is more than the employee’s rate in the first place, you save the cost of benefits and overhead that would have to be applied to the new employee’s wage. And, because Virtual Assistant’s are usually more experienced, more efficient, and better connected than the employee, you’ll need to devote far less time to the project to get the same results, only 480 hours a year versus 2,080 for the new employee.

**Remember, with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the time on task by the minute! No more paying for socializing, hour long lunches or frequent trips to the washroom.

Your employee’s 8 hour day can be crunched into 3-4 hours with a Virtual Assistant.

Simply put, you should contract with a Virtual Assistant because it’s more cost-effective and Virtual Assistants go above and beyond the normal assistant’s duties to impact your own productivity. No task is too big or small for a Virtual Assistant to handle. Even if you only have 1 hour of work a month for a Virtual Assistant to do, a VA can (and will) do it.

You might need to consider hiring a VA if:

  1. You feel overwhelmed with your workload.
  2. You need help digging out from the administrative pile.
  3. You know you could really “move the needle” if you could focus more on what you and only you can do.
  4. You want to be more productive and less stressed.
  5. You know you need help but can’t afford someone full-time.
  6. You don’t want the hassle of recruiting, hiring, and training a physical assistant.
  7. You want—and need—more margin in your life.

What can an virtual assistant do for you?

Anything that does not require her physical presence.

Practically speaking, this means she can:

  • Screen your e-mail and respond on your behalf
  • Schedule and confirm your appointments
  • Book your travel arrangements
  • Make calls on your behalf
  • Perform miscellaneous research
  • Fill out expense reports and track reimbursements
  • Create invoices and post payments
  • Manage any projects you don’t want to handle
