Lack of Technical Knowledge Doesn’t Have to Hold You Back in Business

September 14th, 2012


Frustrated with TechnologyBusiness owners worldwide know the importance of an internet presence. Phone books are quickly becoming a thing of the past with most people looking for solutions to their needs online rather than in the yellow pages. Companies that aren’t found online are losing a major source of potential income. But for many, getting their business online is a mystery for which they do not have the answer. How do you create a website if you don’t know the first thing about the internet? How do you use social media if you’ve never opened a Facebook account and don’t really understand the first thing about Twitter? How do you succeed online if simply using a computer is a challenge?

The answer is a simple one: Hire a Virtual Assistant (VA). A good Virtual Assistant is basically a master of just about anything online. She spends her days managing her clients’ websites, ezines, social media presence and countless other aspects of her client’s business. A good virtual assistant will also offer advice on ways to improve your online business presence and will make it their business to see their client’s businesses succeed online.

Hiring a Virtual Assistant means that business owners can hand off tasks that they don’t know how to do, or simply don’t want to do. Think of your Assistant as your very own online business manager.  Hiring one gives entrepreneurs a way to better focus their time and skills on the money earning aspects of their business and leave the technical stuff in the hands of a capable expert.

For many small businesses that can’t afford to hire extra staff members to handle the online or technical aspects of their business, hiring a Virtual Assistant is the perfect solution. A VA will only work on, and be paid for, the tasks you assign.  In other words, unlike an employee, if your Virtual Assistant only works 1.5 hours for you, you only pay for 1.5 hours of work. This is a great way to control your expenses and maintain your small business budget while getting the help you need to grow your business.

If the online world baffles you and your lack of technical knowledge is holding your business back, your next step should be to look for a qualified Virtual Assistant. There’s a world of possibilities for your business online and there is no reason for you not to pursue them.

"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you’ve been doing for me. You’ve learned and understand my business and as a result I don’t feel like I have to be perfect and notice everything. You have become an amazing partner to me and I really appreciate it."
