If you are like me, you don’t know much about VA’s. It is a relatively new service that has sprung up because of the great need for internet promotion for any business or individual who wants to reach customers or an audience on the internet. A virtual assistant can be hired through reliable and trustworthy companies that cater to this niche and so much more.
Here’s a list of some of the things a virtual assistant company can provide. Customer service support, book keeping, email marketing, data mining, human resources, live sales support, inbound communication support, mailing list development, web research, web development, word processing and data entry. It’s quite a list. It covers the various needs of any company looking to outsource some of the work load. Another benefit of the service is that it is remote. They hire individuals from India, the Philippines and other similar countries. The pay scale they deal with is miniscule compared to American pay rates. This allows them to offer their services at extremely reasonable rates. This saves corporations money, time, and no small amount of stress.
In our economy, outsourcing is the way to go. The current economic climate forces a company to transfer production and other services to countries where labor is more affordable. If and when Donald Trump gets elected, this may change, but for now it is an inevitable reality. Competition is fierce. The bottom line must be affected by cost cutting measures wherever possible. The end product needs to be priced under or in line with the many other products competing for a customer’s hard earned dollar.
I hired a company called 247 virtual assistants. They took over all my promotion, internet marketing, email list retention, and customer service. The cost to benefit ratio was through the roof. If I tried to hire someone in Canada to do all this, it would be cost inhibitive for sure. Thankfully, such a service exists. It is a contributing factor to my ongoing success in business. But cost is not the only factor. Over the past two years, I have gotten to the point where I don’t even think about the services provided. I just know they are being done well and efficiently. I simply write a cheque each month and rest easy. The peace of mind and confidence that stems from this is priceless. It may lengthen my life and how can you put a price on that.
If you are interested in trying my formula for success and stress relief, look online for 247virtualassistants.com. The web site is easy to understand and will walk you through the various services and options available. A simple price structure is clearly relayed. You can call and talk to a real person and ask questions until you are blue in the face. I know this from personal experience. I kept waiting for the customer support agent to hang up on me, but they never did. They answered every one of my questions in a comprehensive manner, and I am very comprehensive, almost to a fault. I would recommend checking out the web site and giving them a call. You will not regret it.
