What do doctors, lawyers, CEOs or even movie stars have in common?

They all have their own executive or personal assistants to help them do what they do best and make their work life easy.

A CEO will not spend his executive time answering each and every email while growing his business empire.

In the movie, The Devil Wears Prada, there is a scene where Miranda Priestly tasks Andy to get the unpublished manuscript of the latest Harry Potter edition for her twins.

Andy surprised Miranda by having not only one copy, but three—two copies for the twins and an extra copy, just in case!

Andy demonstrated her resourcefulness and foresight.

Of course, this is just a scene from a movie, but you get the picture, right?

A resourceful and efficient executive assistant can get it done!

In the global virtual freelancing industry, entrepreneurs can outsource highly-skilled, efficient, professional and trustworthy virtual assistants to help run a business smoothly.

If there is an urgent need to scale up the business, entrepreneurs can outsource a remote team.

The following is a brief overview of how virtual assistants can help entrepreneurs scale up their business.

1. Managing Appointments, Email and Inquiries

A virtual assistant can calendar meetings, send a notification of your next meeting or update a schedule.

If you need a Power Point Presentation or a video demo, a virtual assistant can prepare this beforehand for a sales meeting.

A virtual assistant can organize your inbox, reply to standard email inquiries and properly handle urgent and confidential email.

A remote team can be tasked to reply to online or social media inquiries, so client concerns are attended to immediately.

2. Researching and Managing Database

A remote team can be outsourced to research for a project that will improve productivity of your business.

Research materials and database collected can be submitted in a report form, table or graph complete with an analysis.

3. Managing Expenses and Bookkeeping

Redundant and time-consuming tasks such as bookkeeping, bills payment and invoicing can all be assigned to a virtual assistant.

4. Social Media Marketing and Content Creation

A skilled virtual assistant can manage your business social media marketing.

A virtual assistant who has SEO writing skills, can curate, re-purpose or create relevant organic content that can drive traffic to your website and increase your sales.

5. Project Management

Multiple projects can be managed by virtual assistants or a dedicated remote team that can help scale up a business.

There are online apps that you and your remote team can get on to help you monitor and manage projects on auto-pilot.

In a nutshell, virtual assistants help improve productivity and efficiency of a business, whether a business is a start-up or large-scale.

What’s more, a virtual assistant is easy to outsource on contract basis.

Outsourcing tasks to virtual assistants are a cost-effective business strategy because there is no need to pay salaries, overtime, employee benefits or equipment that full-time regular employees require.

So, if you are ready to find your very own virtual Andy or Emily, look no further.
