Like most busy people, you’re probably juggling a hundred things at once. The list of demands on your time grows and grows, and it can sometimes feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day – you just don’t have time to do everything!  That’s where a virtual assistant comes in handy.

 

A virtual assistant is an online professional who can take care of a variety of tasks for you or your business. In this blog post, I’ll explain some of the most common services I’m asked for help with by my clients.

 

What Services can a virtual assistant offer?

The services I’m most frequently asked for support with by my clients fall into the following 5 categories, each of which I’ll explain in more detail:

  • Email and diary management
  • Handling booking systems 
  • Managing CRM systems 
  • Invoicing and accounts support
  • Event organisation

 

Email and diary management

Think about the amount of time you spend wading through a congested inbox and booking meetings and Zoom calls.  From managing and prioritising your inbox content to keep your calendar up to date, I can help! If keeping on top of your inbox is driving you up the wall, outsourcing diary management can be a fantastic job to hand over to an expert.

 

Handling booking systems 

If you’re running short on time, outsourcing your booking management can represent a significant time saving. Let me take the hassle out of organising your travel and hotel stays, restaurant reservations and theatre and concert bookings, leaving you more time free for your key areas of focus.

 

Managing CRM systems 

Most established businesses need a customer relationship management (CRM) system for clients and potential leads, but this requires frequent and regular input. As your on-hand virtual assistant I can assist with this, inputting data, updating customer information and generating reports.

 

Invoicing and accounts support

Keeping on top of your accounts paperwork can be an ongoing headache. Whether you need a spare pair of hands to handle your invoicing, chase unpaid invoices, manage your expenses, deal with bank reconciliations or pay your bills, a virtual assistant can be a huge time-saving benefit.  

 

Event organisation

Event planning is no easy task. Agreeing dates, finding venues, sourcing caterers, organising speakers, managing invitations and RSVPs, preparing and issuing agendas, taking minutes – it all takes time and experience to get it right. Whether it’s a Christmas party or a board meeting, I can manage your event from start to finish, keeping things running smoothly every step of the way.

 

Personal lifestyle services

Virtual assistant support isn’t limited to your business life: I have plenty of private clients who rely on me to take a weight off their shoulders in their personal lives as well.  I’m always delighted to help with setting up filing systems, managing insurance renewals, organising rooms and spaces in their home and handling anything else that relieves the burden of organisation.   

 

And those are just some of the services a virtual assistant can offer!

As your virtual assistant, I can also give you back time in other ways: whether you need help with research, organisation or even arranging office or house moves, I can help you with a range of tasks, all of which will save you time, effort and hassle. For many people, hiring a virtual assistant is the best decision they make.
