Are you feeling snowed under, with not enough hours in the day to focus on your goals that actually create new business opportunities and drive your business forward?
Many of the businesses I connect with don't realise that the service that I provide is available to them; and have concerns that working with a Virtual Assistant is expensive, not worth the hassle, or they don't have enough work to justify working with a VA.
My goal is to support your business when you just need that extra hour in your day - either due to being exceptionally busy (which is brilliant news for you!) or when you just want to be a little more organised and efficient. Services I offer range from business support - for example creating spreadsheets or managing your diary, to writing a blog for your website, to running a social media audit on your business.
The number one question my clients have is whether it is a cost effective option to hire Shoreway Business Support. On that note, here are the top five (of many more!) reasons that I could be just what you need...
1. I will save you money
Your time is valuable. You are the driving force of your business, and responsible for moving the business forward. Outsourcing the repetitive admin tasks that take up your time, or having to think of engaging Facebook posts when you could be doing anything else, mean that you can increase productivity and focus on activities that will have a meaningful impact on your business. My rates are extremely competitive, and a lot cheaper per hour than yours is!
2. I will save you time
Outsourcing is one of the best kept secrets of modern productivity. I like to consider myself your extra pair of hands...somewhere you can offload time consuming tasks that I will complete efficiently, allowing you to move away from the detail and start to oversee the bigger picture of your brand. With experience in marketing, I also offer a Social Media Audit, which reviews your social media activity to ensure that you are communicating effectively with the right audience the right way.
3. Outsourcing is a lot less hassle than hiring
As an independent contractor, you will not need to worry about PAYE, pension, appraisals, pay rises... I am the extra member of your team when you need it. You can either work with me for a particular project at a fixed fee, or buy a chunk of 'time' to be used as and when you need.
By delegating tasks to me, you can tap into many skills that would carry a high price tag if I was to be employed as a team member. With corporate and small business experience, I use these skills to give you exceptional service in the most cost effective way for your business.
4. You only need to use (and pay for) my services when you need them
Whether you are a sole trader, small business or independent retailer, cash flow is critical. Within any business, there are times when you simply can't do it all. You may have busy periods of the year but need no additional help in your slower months. You may have a specific project you just need a little extra manpower to help you complete. Or you may want to pass all of your social media and blog writing to someone else so there is one less thing to think about - a flexible way to build a social media brand with a regular and consistent presence.
There are three options... continue as you are, working at maximum capacity; hire an additional salaried team member; or outsource to me as and when you need, with no minimum amount of hours/time. Having the flexibility to customise the amount of work you pass over ensures you are only paying for what you need.
5. Your productivity will increase and allow you space to breathe, focus and plan
Owning your own business and having the time and head-space to focus on the bigger picture really can happen! I can help increase your productivity by removing small tasks from your day, meaning there is one less plate to juggle - allowing you to actually focus on, and accomplish, business critical tasks.
For example, you know that your competitors have been updating their websites and raising their social media game, but you just don't have the time to sit down and really pin point what they have changed. I have experience and love to carry out competitor analysis - creating a report with observations and suggestions for your brand.
Or, you know that you should be driving traffic to your website via an engaging and relevant blog, but the thought of adding that to your To Do List is just one thing too many, I will happily research successful blog topics for your business sector, and draft as many as you would like, to be saved and posted when you wish.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. As mentioned, these are just a few of the many reasons a Virtual Assistant can add value to your business - so please feel free to contact me.
