Small businesses often put off hiring extended teams until they’ve grown larger, if at all, but that could be a mistake that would actually delay business growth.
At Venice Virtual we can help in the success of your business by identifying where we can add value, assisting you with marketing, social media, business support and in areas such as admin, PA, bookkeeping etc. Therefore, the services we offer extend beyond simply minimising menial tasks but fully support your business growth and gives you an undeniably valuable benefit when it comes to saving time and money.
As a small business having that additional personal time is considered money well spent. We are all guilty of trying to prioritise and prioritising right, however, getting a good balance is difficult.
A key advantage of using an outsourced VA is that it saves you time that you can put to far better use. Hiring a VA allows you to ensure that the other areas of your company are being managed well whilst allowing you to focus on growing your business and fulfilling a better work-life balance.
Over the last year or so we have seen a spike in self-care and promotion of mental wellbeing in the workplace as well as seeing that shift in our priorities. Organisations have recognised that to avoid burnout they need to invest in time out to de-stress, whilst individuals have reassessed what is more important to them. Having that additional help will allow you the time to consider taking more time for yourself as a small business owner which will, in turn, allow you to become more productive, more motivated and more creative at work.
It is vital that you keep accurate financial records and stay on top of your operational processes. However, it is equally true that your efforts are most valuable when concentrated on your area of expertise. It pays to hire an experienced VA who knows exactly where your company is positioned in relation to your market sector. Many will have expertise spanning a wide range of skills, you will be able to save money whilst maintaining a great standard of work and they’re on hand when you need them 24/7.
As we navigate a new normal, businesses are now embracing the hybrid work environment and feeling more comfortable hiring freelancers because they are not tied to a long-term commitment, as well as having to pay holiday rates and the other financial obligations that come with hiring in-house staff; a driving incentive for businesses in an unstable business climate following COVID-19.
You can leverage this knowledge to create your unique selling point, price your services appropriately and gain a competitive advantage. In short, finding an experienced VA allows you to benchmark your company which is incredibly expedient for growth.
