A Virtual Assistant is an independent contractor who supplies administrative and professional services from afar. Communication is done via telephone, fax or the Internet.
Hiring an office person can involve advertising costs or employment agency fees. And how many times have you hired someone, trained him or her, only to have them quit the next week and have to go through the entire process again.
HIRING AN EMPLOYEE COSTS MORE THAN YOU THINK!
By hiring a V.A. you donít have to:
* Supply them with an office * Buy costly office furniture and equipment * Pay for time you donít need * Compensate for sick time, holiday and vacation * Spend money on other employee benefits- mobile phones, vehicle expenses, etc. * Be limited to local hiring options * Pay for non-productive time- break times and personal issues * Pay payroll taxes, health insurance and workers compensation insurance
Should I hire a V.A.?
You may be a new business and desire support but donít have the need or resources to hire someone full time.
Or maybe you have a home-based business and you donít want a stranger in your home or have the room to set up an additional office space.
Or you may have a special project you need assistance on.
VIRTUAL ASSISTANCE MAY BE JUST WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!
