Few small business owners alone possess all the skills necessary to create and manage a thriving business without some professional assistance. For the past decade, virtual assistants have been instrumental in assisting small business owners in areas such as internet marketing, website design and maintenance, publicity and advertising, list and database management, customer care, and a host of other key business functions.

However in reality, few virtual assistants possess the vast skill set necessary to provide the business owner with the highest possible quality work in all these key areas of business management. As a result, an employer may spend many tedious hours training a VA to get her up to speed in the areas in which she is deficient, only to receive mediocre results that may not help the business to grow, or worse, may actually result in a negative ROI.

This is why a Virtual Team is an intelligent outsourcing solution for the small business owner with diverse tasks to delegate, and a demand for consistent, measurable, excellent results every time, on every task. Read more

There’s no doubt about it; in the last ten years, technology has improved so much, that it has certainly changed the way we live our lives and receive our information. It has also changed the way we conduct business.

People are no longer bound to a corporation for employment. More and more people are starting their own businesses from home. They can communicate with clients in a blink of an eye, send documents and reports around the world in an instant and even compete with large corporations for clients.

Even though a person is able to do all of those things from home, they are still only one person and will need some support in order to manage a growing business. Hiring a virtual assistant is the obvious solution, but the process can be intimidating – especially for those who are new to the work at home arena. Read more

When someone decides to hire a virtual assistant to help them with their business, it is natural to want to hire the most qualified person for the job. Some VAs have chosen to become certified. Is this something you should look for when hiring a VA?

There are many online schools and associations that offer VA certification. Since there is no law that governs what this distinction means, each program or association can decide what is required for their specific certification.

In most cases, this will mean that the VA has passed some exams in things like word processing, web design, internet research, and so forth. It is important to remember that there are no standardized tests and that receives certification from one organization may not be eligible for certification from another organization.

Rather than looking at a certification that may not mean much at all, it is important to look at the VA’s all around background, skill set, and past experience. Read more

Should you pay more for a US-based VA? Actually, yes.

Competition in a global marketplace is with competent people who have in-demand skills, working in foreign countries for a fraction of the price we would expect to pay a US worker – even someone who works out of their home.

There is a great deal of talent out there…but if you want to support a home-friendly economy and a green business climate — pay a bit more, and get a highly-skilled VA who speaks your language. Read more

If a VA is too pricey, here are a few lower-cost options to consider:

  • Use other business services. While these businesses charge more than you would pay an employee, using services for tasks like marketing or web development can still save you money since you pay only for the service you need when you need it. Read more
