Thanks to the new age of technology, all you need to find a job is a laptop and an internet connection. While the older generation is still having trouble coming to terms with this, the younger generation has started making money. Some while they are still in middle school. We know of the jobs available online – content creation, for example – the opportunities are not limited to this. If you are a client, you could easily and conveniently hire a Virtual Assistant to help you grow your business. If you are a Virtual Assistant, you could work with practically any client online in any part of the world and get paid handsomely for it. Here’s a list of the tasks you can outsource to a virtual assistant:
We all know how annoying flooded inboxes are. What if you could find someone to filter and declutter your inbox for you for a fee and get the hassle off your plate?
We all get too tired and cramp our to-do lists with tasks and forget all about setting up appointments thinking to ourselves, “I’ll do it in a bit” until it’s way past the date. If only someone could take care of that for us! A virtual assistant could.
Have you still not figured out how to manage your files in an online storage system like Dropbox or iCloud? Maybe you just need someone else to take care of the uploading and the sorting? A virtual assistant could easily manage your filing system and it will be much less crowded than a cabinet setting.
Does your work require research? If yes, then you can always delegate the task to an assistant and end up with a brief summary of whatever information you need without spending hours on the internet looking for the right and relevant content.
Social Media Marketing & Management
All businesses have social media accounts these days and not everyone can be concerned with uploading and updating their accounts. This is where social media managers come in. You need their services if you are a one-man show. Delegate to a virtual assistant so he/she can take care of these mundane work for you. This includes filtering and replying to comments and DMs.
While there are content creators out there in abundance, your virtual assistant could also double as a content creator and take care of your WordPress blog writing, among other content.
Technical Virtual Assistant
All businesses at some point require presentations and a virtual assistant that is tech savvy enough can manage this task. A technical VA does not only prepare or design your presentations, but also understands bookkeeping/accounting and weekly reports on budgets and/or expenses.
If you happen to have an online meeting over Skype, then a virtual assistant could take down minutes of the meeting for you.
If your businesses require building mailing lists, then you could always delegate this to a research VA.
Audio, video, podcasts and various other document types need transcribing, which can be a tedious task. These are best handed over to someone. Hire a transcription VA.
