Why and when would you need a Virtual PA or Virtual Secretary?
If carrying out your day to day invoicing, appointment making tele-sales, accounts and general administration is preventing you getting out on actual work appointments, the time has come to take on a Virtual PA.
When you never have time to actually raise the invoices for work done, or take the time to chase late payments causing a problem with your credit control and cashflow.
When carrying out your administration takes up more of your time than actually working on your profession.
If the answer to any of the above was “yes” then you need a Virtual PA.
Your Virtual PA will manage your admin work far more efficiently than you can, and the cost will be far less to your company if you are out working on your core business rather than trying to cope with all the admin yourself.
One essential reason to have a Virtual PA is to have someone to divert the telephone to, on busy days, or every day, or holidays, we will have a dedicated telephone number for your business and answer it in your business name, make appointments and never miss any business.
The cost of a Virtual PA would easily be offset by the money you would be earning while your PA is working, along with the savings made by no office rent or utility bills, let alone the constant replacement of PC’s and electronic equipment.
No loss of privacy – your working area remains free from additional personnel and you won’t need to purchase expensive equipment, computers or telephone systems.
Flexibility is one great asset of the Virtual PA, sometime you may need help more or less full time and at other times only need part time help, by using a Virtual PA you only pay for the time you need.
Your Virtual PA can provide a mailing address and can bank your cheques and sort out your business mail.
A Virtual PA is even more essential to a small business or sole trader, you will only pay for the time worked but you receive 24/7 support, we are always at the end of the telephone to help when needed.
