As an agency grows, the workload can quickly become too much for one person to handle. This is where hiring a virtual assistant (VA) can be a lifesaver. VA’s can help with a variety of tasks, from social media management, to customer service, to administrative work.
One of the best things about VA’s is that they can be hired on a per-project basis, so you only pay for the work that gets done. This makes them a very cost-effective option for agencies that are looking to scale quickly.
If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to hiring a VA, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier, and one of the things that is included in the Done For You Agency Program is our direct contact with a VA outsourcer so you can get trained VA’s at low cost.
Now you can always try to source your own VA’s is by posting a job on a freelancing site like Upwork. Be sure to include a detailed description of the work you need to be done, and be clear about your expectations. You can also set a budget for the project, so you don’t end up spending more than you intended.
Once you’ve found a few VA’s that you think would be a good fit for your agency, the next step is to set up a system for working together. This will help to ensure that tasks are getting done in a timely manner, and that everyone is on the same page.
One way to do this is to create a project management system, such as Trello or Asana. This will allow you to assign tasks to VA’s, set deadlines, and track progress. You can also use these tools to communicate with your VA’s and give them feedback.
Another option is to use a chat tool like Slack. This can be a great way to keep in touch with your VA.
These are all things that we teach inside the Done For You Agency Program!
