Thinking About Startup Success? Here is how to hire a Virtual Assistant in 2019

employment virtual assistant

The ideas of business owners using virtual assistants have gained lots of popularity in recent years. But hiring them might be one problem some business owners have. VA’s to some people is a lot of money. They begin to wonder why it’s always easy for some organizations to have good service delivery despite the fact that they have low staff population. This is a great job in the business industry and for you to be successful in the business world; you need a VA with skills, certification and ability to deliver, especially in the startup phase of your business.

Here are some of the advantages and challenges you might come across when hiring a VA:

Determine how a virtual assistant will suit your business needs.

First you need to figure out if your business will need a virtual assistant and the aspect where it is needed the most, and how they would benefit you. Don’t just assume that every aspect of your business can be run by a VA, because it can’t. To save cost and improve efficiency , write down your day to day duties and segregate the ones only you can do, such as writing content and write a list that someone else can do. The list that someone else can do is what you hire a VA for.

Understand the pros and cons of hiring a freelancer from an agency.

Hiring from an agency is very beneficial due to the fact that you have the agency behind you. If you hire a freelancer you may run into the problem of them taking on too many projects/clients at once and not being able to deliver as promised, down time, and not being experienced enough. Hiring a virtual assistant from an agency you will have a dedicated VA just for you. One might think that it’s more expensive to hire from an agency but the fact is, it’s not. If you decide to hire an agency VA, at the long-run you will discover that he spends more time on your work and you learn to save more as time goes on.

Do prep work to create a great job listing.

Make sure that you write a professional job listing when looking to hire a personal VA. Remember to add a call-to-action to your writing. This is needed because after you have posted it, someone who fully reads your listing will reply and not the wrong person. This allows you to find the best hand despite the fact you won’t be employing all.

Hiring the assistant.

Some freelance sites like Guru or Outsource.com allow you to bid for a VA. During this process, you sort out individuals who have spent so much time reading your listing. You can decide to respond to them by mail, video call or phone call. However working with a direct VA agency like [Dream Team Virtual Assistants]4, we do all the hiring for you. All you have to do is schedule a complimentary Business Success Session, to find out your needs and the agency then finds the perfect VA for you. We know your time is limited so no need to go back and forth with emails yourself, hire an agency to do it for you.

Managing the assistant.

To manage a VA might sometime be hectic but if you are the type that has the patience to arrange your daily schedule in a way that it will be easier to understand by the VA, in no time the virtual assistant will blend to your office work and it will be easier for both you to work together. Sharing your Google Drive might be necessary to allow your VA to have access your folders and use your passwords. You should be able to trust your VA to keep working while you are away, remember that’s why you hired them.

Always try to find enough time to meet your VA throughout the week. This is to enable you to build a cordial and lasting relationship.

5 SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR COLLABORATING WITH VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS

Presently I have over 10 people working with me in one department or the other, and they are all virtual assistants. Few of them live close to me, while some are far away from me. This has not stopped us from working together and achieving great success. With some really cool software that are in vogue, work has been very smooth and stress free. I’d love to share these 5 tools with you in you find efforts of working with a virtual assistant. You will need these tools to keep business activities in check.

1. [Basecamp] This is a web based project management tool. It is very simple to use. It allows us to store all the files, due dates, tasks, and discussions with the necessary project. We use it for our everyday activities, open ended projects (e.g., accounting) to a one-time (e.g., speaking seminar, new book launch, and video shoots and presentation). I discovered that most remote workers and virtual assistants are used to Basecamp and use it with their clients.

2. [Dropbox] Sharing files with one another is very easy with this tool. It just keeps improving every day. Whenever you sync your file to Dropbox, it becomes available to your co-workers or clients though folder sharing. It’s easy and simple to use. In fact, most of my documents are synched with Dropbox, so sharing file at any time without having to move any folder is now conveniently easy. It also works as a backup system.

3. [Google Calendar] This type of calendar is web based. It enables me to share my dates and engagements with my co-workers or colleagues. Calendars can be broken down into sub-calendars (e.g., project deadlines, speaking engagements, appointments and media interviews, etc.) and then make sure the categories are shared with the relevant worker. This allows my workers to know my engagements to there won’t be a case of double booking.

4. [GroupMe] This is a terrific iPhone app and also a web-based application. Group chat is what it has been designed for. Tele-seminars and live events can’t be easier if GroupMe hadn’t come to the rescue. There is always an everyone to everyone real time communication It’s not stressful when you use GroupMe, it has wiped out the age of normal text massages away. You also have the ability to send large messages to those within your contact or group.

5. [LastPass] This is a password management program that allows the sharing of my login credentials and passwords with my co-workers while without putting myself at risk of password hacking. This information can be communicated in two ways. If I give out my password, they can see it and then use it. Sharing my password makes it unmasked meaning that they can’t see it but can use it. If you always have a second thought about sharing information that is personal, most especially login credentials, this application is the best. Though in most cases it is not secure—a very knowledgeable programmer can still get your password after it has been masked but a rookie at work won’t find it easy.

Lastly, make sure you update your software so that you can keep up with current trends of their activities. These are some of the tools that we use in our business and we recommend them because they work for the[ Dream Team Digital Marketing
