A Virtual Assistant (VA) offers their clients remote support with a range of tasks whether they are business related or personal. They help clients with tasks such as bookkeeping, managing appointments and diaries, as well as setting up online banking. These tasks can be arranged however best suits the client, be it by telephone, email or video calling. They essentially offer clients services that a personal assistant would and more, thus saving their clients time, money and workspace.
The relationship between a VA and their clients relies on mutual trust and understanding. VAs may often deal with personal information such as their clients’ bank details if they are managing their bank accounts and paying their bills. Therefore, it is reassuring to know that not only is your VA is always on hand to help you but that your company or personal life is in capable and trustworthy hands.
The top five benefits to be gained from having a VA are ;

INCREASED EARNING POTENTIAL using time zones. If your business is based Asia with an 8 hour time difference to Europe you can use a European VA to close the loop with your European clients. Make the time differences work for you!
In his No.1 New York Times bestseller ‘The 4-Hour Workweek’, Tim Ferriss, writes about the importance of outsourcing your life as delegation can be key to your success. Outsourcing the tasks that you are perhaps weakest at or that take up too much of your time to a VA, can give you more time to focus on more important tasks such as networking or increasing your clientele. According to http://www.targetpages.com the top ten tasks to outsource are research, email website design, blogging, article marketing, social networking, email marketing, presentation preparation, online videos, phone/email support and bookkeeping/accounting. All these tasks can either be passed on to a VA or your VA may be able to find you companies to do them for you.
