You’ve observed that your workload is increasing and that you need help, but you’re not sure where to look or how to find the help for you and your business.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with some pointers on things to look for when hiring a virtual assistant (VA)
- Decide what you want to outsource.
Make a list of the recurring duties you’ve been performing and decide which ones you can educate your virtual assistant (VA)
- Categorize your tasks in terms of value
The goal of this is to create the best job description for the VA you will recruit. Any work that costs you less money per hour should be at the top of your priority list. Delegate those jobs to your VA and devote your time to projects that you believe will generate more revenue.
- Prepare training videos
Make videos outlining the responsibilities you need to delegate to your virtual assistant. These films should include a clear step-by-step guide to doing your duties with minimum supervision.
Applications you can use to record videos include:
- Choose a project management software
The benefit of using management software is to make it easy to plan out tasks, see and track exactly what your VA is doing and when.
Applications you can use for project management include:
- Consider Location
One of the benefits of hiring a virtual assistant is that location and time zone are unimportant, however, choose a location where you can contact your VA online more easily.
- Choose a Budget
Before selecting and interviewing VAs who offer rates you can’t afford, set a budget. As a result, you will waste less time.
- Conduct Interviews
Make a list of questions ahead of time and ask follow-up questions based on the applicants’ responses.
Applications you can use to conduct interviews include:
