Almost every industry will have a busy and slow season whether it’s the Christmas period or the six-week holidays. It’s during the slow season you’re going to struggle to stay afloat. However, if done right, it is the ideal time to plan ahead. Planning ahead makes it easier to make it through the slow season and helps you plan unforeseen circumstances. Forecasting is tricky business and knowing where to start is even harder, fortunately, this stress can be relieved with the help of a virtual PA. Here’s how:
What is a Virtual Personal Assistant?
A virtual PA pretty much does what it says on the tin. Essentially, you pay a monthly fee and get matched with an assistant that meets your needs. They can handle as much or as little as you want. Virtual PA’s can undertake everything from E-mails and travel booking to research and other tasks. The whole idea of a virtual personal assistant is that they’re not based with you, they’re typically based at home and can work all over the country.
How Can They Help You?
Virtual PA’s can help you undergo research which they can then report back to you. This research can be on potential competitors, exploring the market for new products and even checking up on potential employees. This can shave hours off of your working week.
Another handy role a virtual PA can help contribute to is the collection and analysis of raw data. If you wish, they can then convert this raw data and transform it into a clear PowerPoint which you can then use to present to bosses or even fellow colleagues.
This is possibly one of the most convenient jobs to assign to your virtual PA. They can keep track of all business expenses. Deal with any outstanding invoices and unpaid bills. Of course, this will require the sharing of important information, so ensure that you are able to trust your virtual PA before-hand.
So, there you have it! There are three benefits that a virtual personal assistant can add to your business. Not only that, but it gives you more time to focus on the important things that matter most like forecasting and planning during lulls in business.
