Benefits of working with a VA

There are many benefits for entrepreneurs and businesses to work with VAs as opposed to employed assistants. The following long-term financial outcomes can be achieved if you choose to work with me as your VA.

Increased productivity

Cost savings by personalising and tailoring the services I offer to match your business so that the support I provide is exactly what you require and avoids paying someone for hours of inactivity. Fact: In a standard 8-hour workday, the average UK office worker does a little less than 3 hours of actual productive work.

Improved work quality

Working with a VA like me gives you the opportunity to build a long-term relationship – I’d love to grow with your business and get to know your clients and the way you work as opposed to inconsistent agency staff who may be with you for a short period of time before they move on or decide to do something different. My aim is for you not to have to spend time and money training someone new to work with, only for them to decide to move on after a short while.

Increased flexibility

As a VA, I am not necessarily restricted to a 9-5 workday. If you travel and we are in different time zones, this could work to your advantage. We could work on developing a schedule that could maximise the work output and in the event that you are not happy with your VA (hopefully that won’t happen!), you can simply terminate the contact and hire someone else! It isn’t always this simple with a staff member employed directly by you.

Reduced risk in scaling up your business

Perhaps you are not sure if your business can sustain a new employee. If you hire a VA, you would be able to manage the amount of work you have without breaking your budget.

Someone once said:

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

No prizes for guessing who said this!
