The majority of us started as solopreneurs. After all, we can’t hire employees without clients and cash flow. At some point, you decided you had a vision to carry out and a mission to follow. So, you started working on that.
Several companies have settled down once they reach a particular revenue goal, while others have been working like maniacs until they can afford to hire additional staff. This is perfectly fine for those who want to run their business solely. But understand, in making such a decision, you are opting for a specific type of business that may provide you exactly what you need but which will not be scalable.
Once your foundation is set and your business is ready for growth, you can no longer work alone to scale your business. It's virtually impossible to scale a business on your own. For those who want to make this switch from doing everything yourself, consider hiring a virtual assistant to scale your business. This will allow you to brainstorm new ideas, implement them and start scaling up.
Here are a few ways to use a virtual assistant to scale your business:
Blog management involves a lot of small, recurring tasks. It requires a lot of time and effort to deal with the technical aspects of managing a blog. By hiring a virtual assistant for blog management, all of your blogging requirements will be handled by him or her. Your VA will take care of all its technical aspects, such as content creation, content updates, content scheduling and planning, management of blog accounts, and audience engagement. Also, this will help you to evaluate your current position and plan how to target your audience effectively.
Social Media Management
Businesses use Social Media Management to manage multiple accounts, post regularly and engage their audience, and, above all, drive traffic to their website. Social media also opens up a whole new ambit of potential clients that need to be targeted effectively. This is where a virtual assistant can help scale your business. Let your virtual assistant take care of putting social media management in place for your business while you stay the thought leader and let them do the mundane tasks involved in implementation.
It is not easy to scale your business with new clients and open up new business opportunities. Strategic and continuous lead generation is necessary to scale your business. Customers are always looking for a good customer relationship management service that is responsive and quick. Your virtual assistant will manage your new leads and set goals to convert them since this is quite a time-consuming process. While your virtual assistant is keen on finding your new business, you can simply track the process and use your time more efficiently.
It doesn't matter if you have a small business or a large one; you need a virtual assistant to help scale your business. They are easy to hire, available in your convenient time zone, and highly productive. So let a virtual assistant handle your smaller tasks to ease out your schedule and increase your productivity.
BUCKET SYSTEM vs. Employee
Sure, you could hire an ordinary employee to help grow your business, but do you really have enough small tasks to fill up 40 hours per week or even 20 hours per week every single week? If not, that employee will be spending downtime on your dime.
TaskBullet has eliminated this problem with what we call the BUCKET SYSTEM. Your remote employee will clock in when you need them and clock out when you don't. (Learn how it works here) With a remote personal assistant, you pay for the hours you need and nothing more. You'll save money on not having to provide employee benefits, office space, office supplies (computer, desk, coffee, etc.); oh, and did I mention downtime?
Your remote personal assistant will come with his or her own supplies, a strong education (TaskBullet virtual assistants have university degrees), and deep professional background. When you hire a virtual sales assistant from TaskBullet, you are also assigned a project manager to ensure that everything runs smoothly. What are you waiting for?
