Virtual services have grown in popularity over the years in Australia and particularly overseas. The difference in using an Australian based assistant compared to an offshore assistant is that you will be working with someone who has local knowledge and who is experienced in how Australian businesses operate.
You'll have someone who is capable of professionally representing you and your business. You won't compromise on quality or reliability when you choose local virtual support and you'll have a trusted and skilled resource who will protect and care for your business as much as you do.
An online business manager assists with the day to day operations of a business, manages people, contractors, other freelance staff and third party providers freeing up the business owner to concentrate on areas of the business that require their full attention and energy.
Do you need someone to manage your social media accounts, to help you create an online presence and stay visible to potential clients?
Do you need someone to create polished and visually stunning power point presentations to wow your audience?
Do you need someone to effectively handle your calendar, prioritise meetings, alert you of potential clashes and schedule customer appointments so you don't miss any opportunities?
Do you need someone who will proactively manage your emails, respond to your customer enquiries and filter out the noise to allow you breathing room to focus on your creative projects?
These are just a few of the areas where virtual assistance can help you shine.
If you don't think you have the budget for a virtual assistant or online business manager, then think again.
Delegating to an online assistant compared to hiring a full time employee can save on equipment, office space and employee expenses.
With software like Skype, Whats App, Google Docs and Dropbox, we can communicate and work together anywhere and anytime. You save on the overheads that a permanent employee would typically cost.
Start with delegating just a few tasks. Even as little as three to four hours a week can make a big difference.
Spend the time you get back focusing on your areas of expertise.
An online business manager seamlessly and organically integrates into your business to become a valued partner and your 'on-call' go-to person.
You'll be dealing with the same person for all your requirements, so you won't need to worry about someone new having to learn your business each time.
I'll build relationships with your existing business partners and together, we will all work as one integrated team to help you achieve your goals.
Of course privacy and confidentially is paramount. I have experience in protecting sensitive personal and business information.
An online business manager can keep your business ticking over when you can't be there or need to take a well earned break.
I can help you cover the day to day operations, manage your email, calendar and phone calls in your absence.
When you need someone to attend meetings on your behalf, take minutes and record actions, or cover you at networking events, I can help you stay on track and keep you connected.
A virtual business manager can provide you are real solutions and results driven support.
Using virtual services doesn't require a lock-in contract or long term commitment. Think of it like support on tap - you turn it on when you need it and only pay for what you use.
I can help you with a one off project, short-term assistance or when you need a last minute presentation pulled together.
I can offer expedited services and quick turn-around for urgent projects. I can easily adapt to your schedule and can be available on call when you need me. I can work outside of core hours to help you meet your time-frames.
So next time you find yourself running late, stuck in a meeting, or have a looming deadline, give yourself peace of mind that you have an assistant who is only a phone call away.
