Hire a virtual assistant in the Philippines.

As long as you are in the business, you will need a virtual assistant. Hiring VAs is being considered, especially with the technology developments.

Listed below are the general tasks they take up for you:

Personal Tasks

You can hire a VA to help out with personal tasks such as:

  • Organizing your personal to-do list and calendar
  • Booking travel arrangements for weekend trips or vacations.
  • Helping you make purchases.

A lot of these tasks don’t need someone in person. They can be for outsourcing instead.

Content Creation

Content writing helps boost search engine optimization and drive traffic to websites.

Have someone oversee this process. This results in a great digital marketing decision on your part.

Blog posting should be regularly to:

  • Have more people find you on search engines.
  • Have more of them clicking on your posts. This results in consumers visiting your website.
  • Blog posts could serve as a star for communication between you and your audience.

Content creation is not easy. Besides writing, there are a lot of other tasks like:

  • Research
  • Finding and editing images
  • Uploading articles to your blog

That’s why it’s a good idea to outsource your blog posts to a virtual assistant.

Financial management

There’s this general assumption among small business owners that VAs can do your taxes for you. But at the end of the day, they can’t do any actual accounting for you. What they can do is:

  • maintain budgets
  • make purchases
  • Keep track of your expenses to make your finances as transparent as possible.

Social Media Management

Many potential customers are going to notice and engage through social media. It is essential to be able to connect with people while staying relevant.

Have someone experienced to handle:

  • Creating content to share on your social media accounts
  • Scheduling posts
  • Engaging with your followers
  • Analyzing statistics and reports

Customer Service

Below are some of the customer service we offer:o

  • Loyalty programs
  • Invoice inquiries
  • Balance inquiries
  • Order tracking and fulfillment
  • Customer care support
  • Inbound sales support
  • Billing Support
  • Replacements
  • Account management

What to consider before hiring your VA Philippines

Decide on your services & budget

Are there any specific services that you want our employees to do? We offer social media, blog management, and even technical services. But we can adapt more services according to your needs as our employee is hired and trained to meet all your requirements.

We make it all legal.

Depending on your state, county, and city, we follow up with your business license so that we can prepare anything needed for a smooth transfer of tasks.

Business plan

Once the first two above are settled, these are the following things we will work on with you:

  • Services we provide
  • Contract we give to potential clients
  • How fees are paid

Marketing strategy

Our VAs can help you with your social media as a tool to gain new clients. Do you want to have a blog and email list? Would you like to market your business to get new clients? We’ve got you covered on that, too.

Advertising your business virtually

If you don’t find a client from your network or if you want to branch out, it’s time to advertise your services. Post on social media, write a blog post and create a YouTube video. All these can be done to gain a new client. Part of doing business is advertising what you have to offer. Virtual assistants are perfect for the job.

They are keeping clients and earning their loyalty.

Once you’ve found your first clients, or even once your business starts growing, it’s essential to continue making your clients happy. Our employees finish tasks on time, communicate, and go above and beyond for your clients.
