All small business owners know how tough it can be, trying to wear every hat in their business and keep balance at the same time. That’s why they need support and who better than a Virtual Assistant – their own personal support?
1. Screen, forward and action your email.
A number of my clients have an admin email address for my use and a lot of their email, bookings and registrations, sales and enquiries are all sent to this address. I respond accordingly and forward what requires the client’s input and knowledge.
2. Manage your database
Who’s got time to enter in all those business cards you collect or maintain your database when you’ve got things you need to do to continue generating income? Enter your VA!
3. Send out your broadcast emails.
Additional to maintaining your database, your VA can set up and send out your broadcast emails, one-off announcements, newsletters and any other information that needs sending out.
4. Handle your bookings
If you run seminars, or other events your VA can set up the flyers and announcements, email or post them out, then handle all the enquiries and bookings as they come in. Further they can set up the nametags and registration lists for you, and liaise with the venue.
5. Maintain your website and your blog
Whilst my clients are responsible for the content on their websites and their blogs I am the one who does the updating, tweaking, formatting and so on. The information is emailed or faxed to me and I action what’s required.
These are just 5 ways that a VA can make your day!
