What Is A Virtual Assistant?

  2. 2. What is a Virtual Assistant? <ul><li>A Virtual Assistant is a highly skilled and experienced entrepreneur with several years experience undertaking administrative work, generally at a high level.  </li></ul><ul><li>A Virtual Assistant works closely with individuals and business operators to assist them with their administrative needs. </li></ul>© Assisting U 2 Connect 2008

  4. 4. Example <ul><li>An example of how one of our clients used our business is: </li></ul><ul><li>A client was setting up a new business and required someone to assist in the initial set up of their office including email setup, brochures, website creation, letters, powerpoint presentations etc. and recruitment of a telemarketer. This was a short term role, however that same client has returned to us requesting assistance with research requirements that they have. </li></ul>© Assisting U 2 Connect 2008
  5. 5. Permanent employee v Virtual Assistant <ul><li>If you employ a permanent secretary, even on a part time basis, and you then realise that perhaps you do not have as much work as you could wish for, then you have the headaches of wondering: </li></ul><ul><li>(a)    how to keep her busy; (b)    will you need to dismiss her services, and how; (c)    you will still have all of the employment overheads such as PAYG, Payroll tax etc. </li></ul>© Assisting U 2 Connect 2008
  6. 6. Permanent employee v Virtual Assistant <ul><li>Because a Virtual Assistant is not a permanent employee of your firm, you only pay for the time worked by the VA. There are no other employment costs for you or your business. </li></ul><ul><li>The term “Virtual Assistant” is as it sounds “virtual”. However, in some instances, a client may require a VA to be physically present in their office. In this instance, they are still an independent contractor working for your business and the same minimal outlay will still apply. This set up makes a VA affordable and convenient to individuals and small business </li></ul>© Assisting U 2 Connect 2008
  7. 7. How could you benefit my business? <ul><li>As a VA we work alongside your business, becoming a part of it without any of the normal employment expense overheads.  You do not need to provide us with any hardware or software components, as we fully utlise our own equipment and software.  </li></ul><ul><li>Imagine, being able to send an email or make a call to us with your requirements, leave it with us and we attend to your request in an efficient & timely manner, providing you with the final product without any fuss. </li></ul>© Assisting U 2 Connect 2008
