So what are the benefits of hiring a virtual assistant, you might ask!
Well, before we answer that question, let me tell you who virtual assistant are and what they do, okay?
Virtual Assistants are also known as independent contractors which mean that you do NOT have to go through the process of hiring a full-time employee of your company. Instead, you simply pay them for their services as you go.
However, certain formalities are still required to hire a Virtual Assistant.
- For example, a “formal contract” has to be signed by both parties in which responsibilities and expectations are clearly written down in detail to avoid fraud and conflicts.
- Plus, a reliable means of communication must also be established.
Beyond these formalities, however, using a service of a virtual assistant is MUCH simpler than actually hiring an employee.
Here are few reasons why it’s better to use the services of a virtual assistant than a full-time office employee:
1. Don’t Invest for EXTRA for office supplies and other equipments
Most virtual assistants like to work from their homes and therefore they use their own office equipment, including computers, internet access, chairs, desk, printers so that you do NOT have to pay for these office supplies out of your own pocket, ever! Sounds great, right?
Right! Virtual assistants bear all such expenses, meaning you don’t have to deal with buying or maintaining any such equipment, ever!
2. Don’t Pay Taxes or Create ANY Benefit Packages
As an independent contractors, virtual assistant are responsible for their own taxes and benefits. That means you NEVER have to think about pensions, medical insurance, payrolls, etc. Hiring a virtual assistant for your business is MORE cost-effective than hiring a full-time employee.
Hire a virtual assistant for your business requirements.
3. Virtual Assistants are MORE Dedicated and Committed to their Quality of Work
Virtual assistants are highly productive and always deliver HIGH value to their clients. VAs understands their income is dependent upon the quality of work they deliver, unlike full-time commuting employees who draw monthly salary regardless of their effort.
Not to mentions VAs offer excellent administrative support too so that you can free up more time to focus on core business activities of your company and generate MORE profits.
4. Flexibility at Work, NO Need to Work on Normal Business Hours
Simply assign your project to them and give a deadline, and they’ll do the job efficiently and on time. It’s the pressure that kills productivity. So, when they have a flexibility to work at any time of the day, you have a better chance of getting high quality work.
5. Employing an office staff could be SCARY!
Have you considered the amount of paperwork you have to deal with and spend hours on your free time on preparing payrolls, payroll tax, income taxes, leave benefits, insurances, superannuation payments, which are intractable.
On the other hand, a virtual assistant is an independent contractor, which means that you only pay her invoice once and that’s it. You don’t have to worry about other requirements.
6. Virtual assistants don’t need to be micro-managed
Unlike office staffs who needs to be micro managed all the time, you can leave your business tasks on virtual assistant comfortably by knowing that the job will be done efficiently, properly, and on time!
