As a business owner, you’re likely to be the one wearing all the hats. That’s perfectly fine when you’re bootstrapping operations or just starting out. However, as your business begins to scale, you might find yourself spending the best part of the day doing repetitive tasks just to keep the business running. You should know that help is available. Yes, you can outsource your business tasks to a virtual assistant!
Delegating tasks to a virtual assistant will free up precious resources so that you can focus on the thing that matters most, growing your business.
“But where do I find a virtual assistant?”, you ask.
Nothing beats getting a personal recommendation. Friends from the industry should be able to give you a few names. Doing a search online will also give you a few leads. But if you want to find a reliable virtual assistant with years of experience, your best bet is to go online and enlist the help of a trusted outsourcing agency.
At Virtual Elves, we take great care in matching our professional virtual assistants with the ideal client.
Here’s a sneak peek at how we find a virtual assistant for you:
We learn about your needs – what type of help do you need for your business? After an initial discovery call with our founder Kristy, you can let us know about your requirements by completing our job description template.
We match your needs with qualified candidates – the nuanced job of finding the perfect fit happens in this stage. Basically, we send the job description out to virtual assistants who closely fit your requirements. Our virtual assistants have the freedom to choose if they want to be included in the candidate pool. This ensures that they have the capability to accept new clients. We then send you the profiles of these candidates, which may include their CV, English proficiency test results, typing test results, internet speed, personality test, and the results of a test task if so required.
We let you get to know the candidates – we arrange a virtual meeting between you and the candidates so you can get to know them and ask your burning questions. This is the perfect time to guage who will be a good fit for your business. What’s your first impression? Do you have complementary communication styles? Can they be available during certain times or will the time difference be an issue? And most importantly, do they have the skills you’re looking for in a virtual assistant?
We facilitate a partnership – once you’ve chosen a candidate, we set you up to start a work relationship. Just like our virtual assistants, our clients also have the freedom to choose flexible work arrangements that are within their capability. No one is locked into a scary contract. This ensures that your work relationship is mutual, trusting, and off to a good start.
Talk to us about the support you need. We’re committed to matching you with reliable and professional support, so that you can focus on building your business.
