Why Hire a Virtual Executive Assistant — 5 Reasons Entrepreneurs Need One

No matter matter what industry you’re in, the day to day grind of dull, repetitious busywork is always a drain on your time & energy. Even worse, it prevents you from focusing on your “one thing” — that unique talent you use to generate revenue in your business.

That’s where a virtual executive assistant comes in: they can handle all your paperwork, calendar scheduling, CRM, reception calls, bookkeeping, expense accounting and more — giving you the freedom to focus on the mission-critical tasks that drive your business.

[Considering a Virtual Assistant?]


If you’ve been spending far too much time answering calls, managing appointments, responding to emails, or are falling behind because of any other administrative tasks, a virtual assistant can boost your success in the following ways.

Regardless of the industry, you’ll experience periods that are incredibly busy, as well as slower periods. Your goals may also change throughout the year, impacting the types of tasks that need to be addressed. In order to achieve this level of flexibility, a virtual assistant is an ideal solution.

This strategy will allow you to pinpoint opportunities that’ll likely lead to increased productivity and growth — all while you continue to develop new growth ideas and strategies.

When considering hired help, it’s imperative that you compare the potential cost-saving benefits associated with a virtual assistant. When hiring a full-time employee, you’ll need to consider costs associated with onboarding, benefits, and other hidden costs.

In contrast, a virtual assistant can help you overcome busy periods without needing to pay someone during slower periods. Although you’ll still need to pay for their services, a virtual assistant is an investment — the type of investment that can significantly boost long-term revenue.

The old saying, “two heads are better than one” could not be closer to the truth. When hiring a virtual assistant to address x, y, and z, those tasks no longer require your attention. Learning to delegate such tasks is one of the most effective ways to boost overall efficiency.

In addition, a virtual assistant can help you become much more organized so that you can easily access the files and documents you need when you need them. From bookkeeping to CRM management, a virtual assistant will provide the level of support you need.

Some weeks seem as though they hit you like a ton of bricks. As you try to catch up, prospective business is not addressed as it should be. Whether you are following up with last week’s clients or are sending out client documentation, you are wasting valuable time and resources.

In turn, your clients/customers are not getting the attention they expect — and your business could suffer. Virtual assistants can address all of your customers’ questions and concerns, all while you focus on driving your business forward.

Just imagine being able to grow your client list while you strengthen your relationship with current clients. Perhaps you have a contact list that you have not yet used for marketing purposes? If so, a virtual assistant could create an email or telemarketing campaign to gain more leads and in turn, grow your client list.

Did You Know? MyOutDesk’s origin story is set during the last global financial crisis of 2008. Yes, that’s right — our business started by scaling businesses with virtual assistants during a recession! Pioneers of virtual assistant services, our first client in 2008 went from five to seventeen VAs with a completely revamped organizational model in short order, and he told MyOutDesk, “Our virtual professionals have shaved $250,000 off our monthly overhead.”
