Virtual Assistant For Hire – Why It’s a Better Option Than An Office Assistant

So, you need an assistant, but you don’t know if you’d rather hire an office employee or a virtual assistant.

Both have their own benefits and advantages, but we are here to tell you why hiring a virtual assistant is the better choice for many businesses and, why Virtual Gurus is the top choice when it comes to getting the most out of your time and money.

Here are the top three choices on why a Canadian Virtual Assistant is the best choice for your business.

 

  1. VERSATILITY –  We don’t need to tell you about the importance of hiring the right employee and of course this would normally take a lot of interviews, three-month probations and patience.  With Canadian Virtual Gurus, you aren’t just hiring one assistant but a plethora of assistants who have a wide range of experiences and skills and we only hire the cream of the crop. While you are generally paired with a main assistant, there is always extra help just around the virtual corner. Of course, each business has its own specific needs and requirements but the number one benefit of hiring a Canadian Virtual Guru is we have assistants in every category, so you never have to look elsewhere for help. Whether it’s writing and social media, payables and accounting, web design, administration and much more, we have specialists that can work with you to bring the most out of your company.
  2. COST SAVINGS – It can be quite expensive to hire a specialist for your company and on top of that you usually pay out vacation pay, benefits, bonuses and more. For example, a social media specialist can make anywhere between $40,000 a year to $60,000 and up. Even if you did hire a social media specialist, they likely won’t have the skills to do the extra tasks required. Counter that with a Canadian Virtual Assistant who often boasts a wide range of skills and you can find one of our monthly plans that works best for your business needs and budget without the hassle of paying for all those other extra costs. And that doesn’t even include the office expenses and training. With Canadian Virtual Assistants what you see is what you get, no hidden costs.
  3. FLEXIBILITY – Often when you have a full-time or even part-time employee, you must make sure they have eight hours of work a day to get your money’s worth. With our flexible plans and assistants, you pay for what you need. If you need an assistant for eight hours a day, you can have it. If you only need them for 10 hours a month, we can do that, too. That’s what’s great about virtual assistants; they work when you need them and not when you don’t. Your assistant can work around your hours and with little supervision, giving you the flexibility, you need at an affordable rate.

There’s a wide variety of reasons why hiring a virtual assistant can help your business reach its potential so feel free to reach out with us for a consultation and find a plan that works for you. The best part; we’re offering $100 off your first month.
