If you’re hesitant to hire a virtual assistant because of paying their hourly rate, consider the big picture: time is money – and how much is an hour of your time worth?
A business owner needs to wear many hats and work in multiple roles within their company. Even if the business has enough employees, the owner will often step in to fill a gap, doing too much on his or her own, working overtime and, eventually, suffering from burning out. Many are reluctant to hire an assistant – even one of our incredible EVAs – because they don’t want to pay an hourly rate for the job to get done. It’s understandable, but fails to take the bigger picture into account: time is money. How much is your time worth?
Working with a virtual assistant companies offers business owners many benefits, primarily their time-saving capabilities. For starters, our EVAs come fully trained and qualified in their fields. Having been recruited and tested by us, you can rest assured, we have the best person for the job. What’s more, there is no need to use your precious time on orientation and training. EVAs can be chosen based on the skills they offer, so you know they are capable of precisely what you need to get done without you having to spend money on training them. (A step-by-step / explanation is sometimes necessary).
And the booking process couldn’t be easier: by simply navigating our website and browsing through your EVA options, you make your choice and book a time slot. After receiving your booking, your chosen EVA will give you a call to discuss your needs and then hit the ground running, focusing on your task.
Since this is a service with booked time-slots, there’s no retrenchment or dismissal process to follow once you no longer need the EVA’s service. When they’ve finished the job, you simply stop booking!
With all of that time free, you can get on with the more demanding tasks you need to get done to run your business. So when you look at hiring a virtual assistant in terms of time, rather than money spent, you’re really thinking about how much your time is worth – and an hourly rate for a virtual assistant suddenly makes so much sense and is reasonable in comparison to the time they will save you.
