Each business is like a snowflake; unique in its’ shape, purpose and vision.
Each business has it’s own set of requirements.
There are many different Virtual Assistants out there, with different processes and approaches. different skill sets, and experiences.
You have to choose the right one for you, that will come alongside your business in the best way.
There are many different types of Virtual Assistant;
Content Creation/Graphic/Web Design and Development
Specialist in one area (i.e. e-mail marketing)
General (covering general admin and general business tasks)
Things to check with potential VAs;
- What is their background and experience? What are they well used to doing?
- Do they have any good referrals from previous clients/employers?
- What is their particular skill-set and would they be able to handle the tasks that you need outsourcing?
- Do they have the right sort of personality that you like and are able to work with? (I don’t think this is as important as the above, as most VAs I know are hardworking and highly skilled, which is the most important thing in my opinion …)
Other things to think about…
Financial stability is important when bringing on a Virtual Assistant.
This is especially important if you want to bring someone onto your core team in the long-term. There’s nothing worse than building a working relationship and having to drop someone because you have run out of funds.
