With the downsizing of businesses due to budget cuts, economic strain, and a number of other reasons, it is not feasible for many businesses, especially smaller businesses, to have a full time admin staff on hand.
Some small businesses do not have the space or funding for an admin staff person. Independent consultants get tied up and don’t have time for client and team member contact.
That is where a virtual admin comes in. There are many virtual admins out there with a wide range of skills. The business client picks the services they need help with, or simply don’t want to take on, and they hire a virtual admin, who handles those tasks remotely, eliminating the need for office space and equipment.
Admins can be found with varying ranges of pricing structures, as well as a cost per hour or task. A business owner or manager simply needs to search the internet and find the one that is the best fit for their business.
Some tasks that can be assigned to virtual admins include (but are not limited to):
- Scheduling and booking appointments
- Client follow up (calls/emails/letters, etc.)
- Calendar management
- File management
- Travel planning
- Managing social media accounts and blogs
- Presentation prep
- Data entry
- Report/form/template creation
- Graphic design
The list goes on and on. If you have a task that needs to be done to grow your business, there is a virtual admin out there who can handle it.
