Our Top 2 Tips For Succeeding With Your Virtual Assistant

Virtual assistants (VAs) can be transformative for business owners, offering much more than just administrative support—they can truly change the way your business operates. However, not every VA relationship is destined for success without the right groundwork. Here’s how to make sure your VA not only fits into your business but helps it thrive.

Invest time initially 

Your first interaction with a new VA is your golden opportunity to set the stage. Remember, while you know your business intimately, your VA is starting from scratch. The key to transforming your VA from a simple task-taker to a pivotal part of your team lies in the initial time investment you make.

From the outset, be transparent about your expectations, your strengths and weaknesses in management, and the specific tasks you need help with. If delegation isn't your strong suit, discuss this openly with your VA.

This honesty allows your VA to anticipate challenges and proactively manage them. With a good understanding of your business dynamics and your personal working style, a VA can begin to seamlessly integrate into your processes, take initiative, and help to enhance your own delegation skills.

Maintain regular communication 

The number one factor determining your success or failure with a VA is clear and regular communication. Share your thoughts, ideas, concerns, and business plans with clarity. This open line allows your VA to align closely with your business goals and contribute effectively.

Trust that your VA knows precisely what to do with the information, and watch your business grow as your working relationship strengthens and your VA steps up to the plate time and time again. 

Instead of spending your precious time typing emails, use a quick form of communication such as WhatsApp, Voxer, or Viber to send voice messages to your VA. This helps create an efficient workflow and ensures your VA is kept fully in the loop, and is able to respond quickly to your business needs.

By following these tips, your VA will become a secret weapon in your business. This partnership will not only free up your time but also streamline your operations, allowing you to focus on what you do best—growing your business. With a VA by your side, prepared to go the extra mile, your business is set to outpace competition and achieve new heights.
