10991Virtual Assistants are better than your average administrative assistant/secretary!  Sorry to be so blunt but it is so true.  Why?  Read on to see the reason behind this blog post.

In-Office Admin Assistant:
(They are great don’t get me wrong, but consider these when you are deciding)

  1. Do you have enough work for an 8 hour day or 40 hours per week?
  2. Do they have all the skills necessary without training them to perform the tasks?
  3. Will they continue to improve upon their skills to move your business forward without you paying for it?
  4. Do you have the money to pay for vacation weeks, sick days, lunch (30 mins to 1 hour), health insurance, and other benefits?

Virtual Assistant:

  1. VA’s work only the hours you want them to weekly or monthly.
  2. Each VA is different – so when you are searching for a VA look for the skills you are seeking or needing for your business.
  3. VA’s are always improving their skills and stay on-top of new technology and software to better help their clients.
  4. VA’s are responsible for their vacation, sick days, lunch and all other benefits – we are subcontractors (1099).
