5 Reasons Why Every Small Business Needs At Least One VA


You’re a startup or small business, staring down a mountain of work to be done. There are no hours in the day, let alone days in the week. It would be best if you got things done, but you don’t have an army of employees to help you. It would be best if you had something fast and cheap, but finding people who can do more than one job without burning out is hard. The solution? Virtual assistants (VAs).

VAs are great for entrepreneurs because they allow you to scale up your workforce without needing dozens of employees. In addition, VAs give your smaller team members more time for strategic tasks instead of administrative ones like filing papers or answering emails; allowing them to focus on what matters most: growing their company through research and development (R&D).

Reduced Overheads

Because your VA will be working from anywhere, you can work from anywhere too. Unlike a traditional business, you don’t need to pay for utilities, furniture, and other expenses associated with running a conventional business. Your savings on equipment are also substantial because you won’t need as much equipment as you would if you had staff in-house. You’ll also save money by reducing taxes like payroll tax liability and health insurance premiums for employees that cost thousands of dollars annually.

Integrated Team

A virtual assistant is part of your team. They can help you delegate and be there when you need them. They are also great at helping you keep on top by ensuring that every task gets completed promptly. This means that your business will run more efficiently, which ultimately means more time for growth and marketing rather than being bogged down with administrative tasks.

Increased Productivity

Now that we’ve covered the basics of what a VA is and how it can help your business grow let’s take a look at five of its most important benefits. VAs can help you increase productivity by taking on tasks you don’t have time for.  For example, if your focus is on advertising and marketing, but you need someone to manage social media accounts for you (and keep up with all those updates), then a VA would be great.  They’ll be able to do this without distracting you from other tasks necessary to growing your business. Productivity isn’t just about getting more done in less time—it also means getting things done efficiently, so nothing gets overlooked or forgotten along the way.  VAs give entrepreneurs the freedom from having to worry about minor details like sending invoices or following up with clients because they’re already doing it.

More Focus on Core Business

A Virtual Assistant helps you focus on what you are good at, enjoy, and passionate about. They will help you focus on the core of your business, the things that make it unique, and the things that bring in revenue for your company. They will free up more time for you to pursue projects that only YOU can do well because they’re not part of their job description or skillset.

Global Talent Pool

Hiring a VA also means you have access to a global talent pool. Paying for the services of someone in another time zone or even country is much more affordable than hiring someone locally. Having a wide range of VAs available at your fingertips allows you to find the perfect match for your needs and budget.

This range of options gives you flexibility regarding skill sets and languages. If there’s a cultural-specific task that’s required, our pool of qualified VA’s will provide there will be someone who has experience with that culture and can do the job effectively without needing any training from you.

More energy for your business and family.

When you’re working on your business, every minute counts. Every second can help you achieve your goals, whether growing your company or making more money. 

But when it comes to things like family, friends, and health (essential parts of life), those minutes and seconds can add up to hours—and sometimes days—of your time.

How great would it be to get more done at work and spend more time with the ones you love?

That’s where VAs come in! Your VA can free up tons of time by handling all the mundane tasks that take away from what matters most: spending quality time with your family or working on growing your business further.

Take your business to the next level.

Perhaps the biggest reason to hire a Virtual Assistant is that they can take care of all the tasks you don’t want to do. This means you have more time to focus on what you do best, growing your business, spending time with family and friends, improving yourself, and even taking a vacation.

Remember that since you will only be paying them a set amount per hour (or per task), there is no risk in letting them handle any commission for your business. 

You may find some tasks are easier than others, but at least once every month or two, you should take inventory of what has been done so far and see if there is anything else that needs doing.

A VA service provider can also provide a variety of different VA services depending on how much help/support you need from them at any given time:

Tasks are done faster and in more effective ways than ever before.

VAs are an excellent resource for any small business or startup, and they can help you get tasks done faster and more effectively than ever before. Here are five reasons why every startup/small business needs at least one VA:

  • VAs are efficient.
  • VAs don’t need to be trained on how to do your job; they need to know what it is you need them to do, how often you want them doing it, and the exact format in which they should be doing it (varies by VA). 
  • This saves time because no learning curve or training is involved—you give them your task(s). 
  • The result is less time spent trying to figure out what needs doing and fewer errors due to client misunderstanding instructions.


We hope you’ll take the time to think about how a VA can help make your life easier. And if you’re not sure where to start, we’d love to help. For more information on hiring VAs, don’t hesitate to contact us.
