How to Find a Virtual Assistant
If you run your own business, you may be overwhelmed with work. Instead of hiring someone, a great option could be for you to hire a virtual assistant.
A virtual assistant can do a wide variety of services for you from their home base. Because they are an independent contractor, you won’t have to worry about paying them any kind of payroll.
This is a great option if you run an online business from your home. You really don’t want to open an office or anything. So having people do work for you virtually still allows you the freedom that comes with working at home.
So you know you are thinking about finding a virtual assistant. But where do you find one? We go over a couple ways here.
Honestly, Google can help you with pretty much everything, so it makes sense it can help you find a virtual assistant. Google is a good choice for you if you want to find a virtual assistant specific to your business.
For example, let’s say you own a dance studio and you want to hire someone to run your social media accounts. Perhaps you want to get a YouTube channel or Instagram account going but you do not have time to do this yourself. If you Google “dance studio virtual assistant social media”, the first option that comes up is Dance Studio Website Wizard. Here you will find a business that offers you social media marketing services done by former dance studio owners. So you will find the right person for your particular job. And this can work with other fields, too.
The other great place to look is Fiverr. Fiverr is a wonderful resource of freelancers you can hire for whatever service you need. You can find people to, say, handle all your social media accounts. Or, for example, just your Facebook. You could also find someone to run your SEO (search engine optimization).
This is really good when you need something specific to be done. For example, let’s say you run a dropshipping business and you want to make video ads. You don’t know how to do it and you want someone else to do it. You can find people on Fiverr who would just make the ad for you and you could pay them for that particular business.
This is also a great idea if you run an online business and want something technical done for your business that you don’t have the skills for. For example, you can find someone on Fiverr to convert your website into an app.
Hiring a virtual assistant is a wonderful decision when it comes to helping your business. By hiring a virtual assistant, you don’t have to hire any employees. And at the same time, you can get help so you are not overworked. And you can get things done you don’t know how to do. So if you are looking to hire a virtual assistant, use Fiverr and Google to find the best virtual assistant for your business.
