Can you afford to hire a Virtual Assistant?

A better question might be “can you afford not to?”

If you’re a small business owner, you have to wear a lot of hats. Not only do you have to be the “boss,” you might also be a gofer, a writer, a business analyst, a research assistant, or a marketer.

Ask yourself how much an hour of your time is worth. Is it $50, $100, $200? Now ask yourself if spending an hour responding to non-essential e-mails or writing a blog entry is worth what you normally earn in an hour. Chances are, you can hire a virtual assistant who can perform routine tasks for you (often better than you can) for far less money than you are paying yourself.

There a lot of non-essential but still necessary tasks that steal time away from the really important work that you could be doing every day. Things like posting an insightful tweet, curating content to find the most valuable information related to your business, or posting new content on your website are all important duties that can be very time consuming.

If you spend two hours a day performing these routine tasks, how much is it costing you (you know how much you make – you do the math). How much business are you missing out on because rather than focusing on the things that you are good at or that will bring customers through your door, you’re spending way too much time on mundane tasks?

Chances are, a virtual assistant can do all of your routine daily tasks for a lot less money than you can.
