If you are like most small business owners, you want to focus the majority of your time on building your business. Yet, you may be finding that you are spending an exorbitant amount of time on tasks you shouldn’t. Even if you find that you are getting sucked into these tasks and they are taking away from you really building your business – it’s time to get a team in place. The first team member that I would suggest that you hire is a virtual assistant. Read on for a quick rundown of 9 ways our team can save you time and money today.
1. Client Relations
Some of our clients request that we check all of their emails and voicemails. While others do not want to be taken out of their email and voicemail loop. In that case, we will delete the junk, answer certain questions, and then flag anything important. If your inbox is overflowing and your voicemails are not being returned, you need great client relations to show your clients that you care. Taking these types of tasks off of your plate will help save you time and money.
2. Administrative Services
Most of our clients will have us handle all of their administration tasks, from calendar management to document creation, research, and travel arrangements. Administrative tasks can take up a lot of your day. You need great administration services to keep your business organized. This will allow you more time to focus on what you love.
3. Content Creation
Some of our clients will write their own blog posts, and we only have to format, edit, and add photos and links. Other clients will have us research and write their blog posts from scratch – this is where we really shine! Our team can write on a variety of topics to create fresh content for your website. Alternatively, we can moderate and reply to all comments that are left on each blog post too. We are now offering content creation packages. If you are looking to take blog post writing off of your list, give me a call.
4. Social Media
All of our clients have us manage their social media accounts. This includes everything from writing and scheduling posts that engage their community to interacting with individuals and building the number of followers on their accounts. Also, we offer social media packages now, in case you were wondering!
We help our clients get their products and services in front of their target audience. We use everything from press releases, social media, and blogger outreach to direct mailings and email broadcasts. Also, if you have an amazing IFO on your website, being that, you should have a sales funnel in place. This is another area that we always set up for our clients. It keeps you top of mind – all great businesses should have one. Another amazing marketing tool is the newsletter; if you aren’t sending one out weekly – you should. As you know, it’s a great way to stay in touch with your audience. We are super familiar with most email marketing systems.
8. Shopping Carts
What good is having a website if you aren’t able to accept payment for your services? We help all of our clients will all aspects of their shopping carts. In any case, even if you are just looking to sell your ebook, we can help you get started!
9. WordPress + Squarespace
We have extensive experience in setting up web hosting, installing themes and plugins, integrating social media, email marketing, shopping carts, and creating pages, blogs, and website maintenance. Additionally, if you need help updating your website, we would love to help.
