Which Tasks Are Best Delegated

  1. 1. Which Tasks Are Best Delegated To Your Assistant?
  2. 2. MANY COMPANY OWNERS TEND TO DIP THEIR TOES INTO EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR BUSINESSES.
  3. 3. ALTHOUGH THIS ISN’T NECESSARILY A BAD THING; THERE IS ALWAYS THAT TENDENCY OF GETTING TOO BUSY DOING EVERYTHING AND ENDING UP DOING NOTHING.
  4. 4. WITH THE “HUNDREDS” OF TASKS YOU JUGGLE ON A DAILY BASIS, HOW DO YOU RECOGNIZE WHICH ONE’S ARE BEST TO HAND OVER TO YOUR ASSISTANT? IS IT A MATTER OF PINPOINTING?
  5. 5. DEFINITELY NOT. You can try categorizing them through a level of significance; from priority to the most unimportant. Start at the bottom and measure if the work is effective AS TRUST IS BUILT BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYEE, PROCEED TO THE MORE SIGNIFICANT DUTIES.
  6. 6. HERE ARE A FEW SAMPLES ON WHAT TASKS TO BEGIN DELEGATING
  7. 7. E-mail Support HAVE YOUR ASSISTANT GO THROUGH, ORGANIZE AND REPLY TO SIMPLE E-MAILS. HE OR SHE CAN EVEN ATTEND TO ALL YOUR APPOINTMENTS THROUGH THE SAME CHANNEL.
  8. 8. Social Media Management UNLESS YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE, YOU CAN CERTAINLY APPOINT THE MAINTENANCE OF SEVERAL OR ALL YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS (FACEBOOK, TWITTER, GOOGLE +, LINKEDIN ETC).
  9. 9. Writing IF YOU RUN A BLOG THEN ITS BEST TO SIMPLY LIST TOPICS AND HAVE YOUR ASSISTANT WRITE ARTICLES. COPY EDIT BEFORE POSTING. OTHER WRITTEN MATERIALS SUCH AS E-MAILS,OPT IN REPORTS, NEWSLETTERS OR STATUSES CAN ALSO BE CREATED BY YOUR VA’S.
  10. 10. Data Entry WHO ENJOYS COPY PASTING DATA FROM ONE SHEET TO ANOTHER? I SURELY DON’T, AND I DOUBT YOU DO TOO. GO AHEAD AND HAVE YOUR VA RUN THROUGH FILES, SEGREGATE RECORDS AND INPUT FIGURES.
  11. 11. Customer Support RUNNING A BUSINESS MEANS DEALING WITH SEVERAL CUSTOMER CONCERNS INCLUDING INQUIRIES, SALES AND THE TRICKIEST, COMPLAINTS. IT’S TIME TO PASS THAT ON TO YOUR ASSISTANTS!
  12. 12. The list above does not encompass all the tasks a virtual assistant can perform, in fact professional virtual assistant service providers can even accommodate highly technical needs such as app development, programming, search engine optimization etc. SEE? SOMETIMES A WISE BUSINESS OWNER KNOWS WHEN TO ASK FOR HELP AND DELEGATE. NOW, YOU CAN GET TAKE THAT MUCH NEEDED VACATION.
