Technology has absolutely revolutionized the business world. From software programs to remote work options, the world of business will continue to evolve right alongside technology. One of the ways that this industry has adapted is the explosion in popularity of virtual assistants. Virtual assistants have an extremely wide range of skills, from social media management to sales to real estate.
You may be asking yourself, what are the benefits of hiring a virtual assistant? Are there any? Let’s take a look at the facts.
Hiring a virtual assistant can save you up to 78% on operating costs each year, making it 3 times cheaper to hire a VA than an in office-employee. Amazingly, 91% of stay-at-home workers reported feeling more productive at home and feel that they accomplish much more than they would in-office.
All this to say, virtual assistants provide major benefits to business owners and handing off general administrative tasks should be an absolute no brainer. My Mountain Movers have expert training in multiple industries, such as real estate, healthcare, business, ecommerce and more. Keep reading for the best administrative tasks to delegate to your Mountain Mover and save hours and hours of work from your week.

Accounting and bookkeeping are two tasks that your virtual assistant can easily take over. My Mountain Movers are highly trained in accounting and can quickly jump into whatever software or programs you use! Some accounting and bookkeeping tasks to delegate include ensuring your bills are paid on time, preparing balance sheets or P&L accounts, reconciling bank and credit card statements, preparing invoices and general ledgers and preparing and mailing invoices to customers.
2. Email/Calendar Management
Is your email overflowing? Does your inbox feel like a never ending pile of emails that you can never get through? Good news! Email and calendar management are some of the most simply yet impactful tasks to hand over to a virtual assistant. These tasks are major time suckers and will free up significant time in your work day.
3. Data Entry/Integrity Specialist
Data entry may be one of the more unexpected tasks for a virtual assistant to handle, but has a huge impact on your business. Your Mountain Mover can check all data for accuracy, delete any unnecessary or extraneous files, keep records of all activities and tasks, make sure all of your data is presented in the right forms, prepare all of your data for entry and actually enter your data!

Virtual assistants can also help with chat support. This gives you another channel of communication with clients and customers and strengthens your customer service. Virtual assistants will also handle communicating with leads, creating ready-to-go responses for customer questions, email support, and message handling.

Implementing the most productive and efficient business systems can be make or break for many companies. Virtual assistants can help relieve stress by helping these business systems run.
