The Rise Of The Multifaceted Virtual Assistant:
4 Ways In Which Virtual Marketing Assistants Differ To Traditional Virtual Assistants
Historically, Virtual Assistants have been an entrepreneur’s solution to a singular problem area.
Whether that’s inbox management…
Or social media management…
Or calendar organisation…
The key fact here being that a Virtual Assistant was always trained in just one specific area.
Which is great if you’re running a multi-million dollar organisation. In particular if you need one individual to focus on just one tedious, low-value task
We’re Outsourced Doers. We match time-strapped founders with pre-trained Virtual Marketing Assistants (we call them ‘Doers’). This frees up the Founder’s time to work solely on their Genius Zone – that area where they are the expert… and essentially, the money-making area of their business.
With a background in coaching entrepreneurs to reach a profitable lifestyle business, and with a mission to stop entrepreneurs from hitting burnout through providing them with the support they need… we consider Outsourcing to be OUR Genius Zone.
Now, if you’re anything like the Founders who come to us, looking for help but hesitant to hire a full time Virtual Marketing Assistant… you might be thinking that you don’t have enough tasks to justify this outsourcing route.
