Imagine life on auto-pilot. Your business processes are being accomplished, your e-mails are replied to, your clients are happy, and so are you. With the new trend of Virtual Assistants taking flight over the internet, owning a small / medium enterprise has never been as conducive to the needs of your personal lifestyle.

Virtual Assistants – the new office executive secretary that comes with a webcam, internet, and the power of video conference.

It’s a new generation, and it’s becoming a lot more cost-effective for several business owners to delegate work to a virtual assistant. But why do we say so? Virtual Assistants are common in Asia. For entrepreneurs in the west, the dollar exchange rate goes far and works well for the eastern employee. The Philippines, in particular, is booming in the Virtual Assistance industry because of the hard work their people put in and their comfortable use of the English language.

If you haven’t gotten onto the Virtual Assistant bandwagon just yet, let me give you a few reasons why you should consider changing your lifestyle:

1. Less work, more time to venture out. Typing e-mails, ensuring payroll, creating your PowerPoint presentations, and scheduling meetings take up a large part of your day. In fact, on average, anybody can spend at most two hours just reading and replying to e-mails. With more time on your hands, you can discover and learn more ways to expand your business. Spend your time gathering the data you need and focusing on just that.

2. Cost-cut on workspace and equipment. Hiring a Virtual Assistant means you don’t have to pay for office space, there are no allowances for transportation, and the equipment belongs to the employee. Imagine what that can do for your budget.

3. Lead Generation. Trained VAs can take care of your websites, nurture your customer relations, and enhance sales and productivity without you having to come into the office or spend hours on this task by yourself.

Virtual Assistants are today’s solution to cost-effective business delegation. It’s time to launch yourself into the future and take advantage of the solutions available on the web. Live virtually and enjoy the time and quality of life by hiring the right assistant.
