Why Hire a Virtual Assistant?

Why Hire a Virtual Assistant?

One of the main issues holding small business owners, sole traders and entrepreneurs back from success, is trying to do EVERYTHING themselves. 

Wearing too many hats often means not having time to build your business. 

Delegating and outsourcing can free up valuable time to concentrate on building a successful business, and that’s where hiring a Virtual Assistant can help. 

If you’re spending time supporting your business rather than building it, you’re not spending your time wisely. As the old saying goes…time is money! 

How hiring a Virtual Assistant (VA) can benefit your business… 

Cost saving 

As Virtual Assistants work remotely, you don’t need to free up office space or provide extra equipment for them. There’s also no need for recruitment costs, NI contributions, tax or pension. 


As your business grows, so does the need to implement processes and procedures. A Virtual Assistant can set these up for you to help your business run smoothly. 

You may also need a social media presence. Some VAs, like myself, specialise in social media and digital marketing, so can set up your social media profiles AND schedule content so you don’t need to worry about doing it. 

The power of delegation 

No one likes to admit they can’t do everything. But, learning to delegate tasks can be the key to a successful business.  

Why cause yourself stress when you can put your trust in a VA to carry out those essential, but time-consuming tasks, giving you time to focus on the bigger picture? 

Support when you need it 

You may only need extra support for a specific project or task, in which case it isn’t cost-effective to employ someone to sit in the office waiting to be needed. Nor is it productive to wait until you need help then start a recruitment process.  

Your VA can be on hand for ad hoc tasks that need to be done quickly and efficiently. You only pay for what you need so this option can be both cost-effective and productive! 

What tasks can I outsource to a Virtual Assistant? 

Not all VAs have the same skillset, so you need to find someone who fits what you need.
