Now is the Time… to Continue Growing Your Business

In our previous blog How to take off a day a week and still grow your business in a struggling economy http://www.completeva.com/how-to-take-off-a-day-a-week-and-still-grow-your-business-in-a-struggling-economy/ we looked at the reasons for outsourcing tasks to a Virtual Assistant (VA).

Looking specifically at how a VA can support a small business owner, here is an alphabetical list of common administrative tasks to outsource:

  • Compiling and cleaning up contact lists
  • Creating and managing spreadsheets
  • Creating and updating charts, graphs, and pivot tables
  • Creating reports
  • Creating templates and forms
  • Data entry
  • File storage and organization
  • Online research
  • Planning and arranging travel
  • Preparing online meeting minutes
  • Preparing presentations
  • Scheduling appointments/diary management
  • Tracking deadlines and sending reminders
  • Transcription of minutes or notes
  • Translations

It is important to remember that a business owner might find a great VA who has experience in some tasks, but not in everything. We are all beginners before we are specialists.  It is highly recommended that business owners do their research to find the person who can assist with the most pressing tasks and grow the relationship from there.
