Why Full Time Virtual Assistants Are What Successful Entrepreneurs Choose (Rather Than Hiring A Part-Time Virtual Assistant)
You’re a start-up entrepreneur. You’ve done your research, and you know what you need to do to get your business off the ground. But there’s one thing you’re missing: someone who can help you do all of those things full-time. That’s where we come in.
We’re Outsourced Doers. We provide time-strapped entrepreneurs with full-time Virtual Marketing Assistants (we call them ‘Doers’). Doers specialise in taking on the tasks that don’t interest or challenge you, so you can focus on what does. If this sounds like something you need, keep reading!
Now, we have worked with thousands of founders since we began our outsourcing business in 2020… and a common train of thought is this:
“I don’t think I have 40 hours worth of tasks to outsource every week. Outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant sounds great… but I only need a part-time VA. What should I do?”
If you’re thinking this too, just know you’re not alone. Many founders ask themselves this question. They know they need help but are hesitant to take on the cost of a full-time assistant.
The difference between common founders and successful founders is their acknowledgement of what a full time Virtual Assistant can do for them… rather than looking for a part time option. While part time Virtual Assistants may seem like the better option in the short term… successful founders know that full time Virtual Assistants are the key to growing a profitable lifestyle business.
Successful entrepreneurs are often lauded for their ability to get things done. They’re seen as go-getters who make things happen, no matter what. However, what many people don’t realise is that successful founders are good at delegating and hiring people to do the things they don’t have time for. In other words, they know when to ask for help.
Here are three reasons why a full time Virtual Assistant is what you’re after if you want to be a successful entrepreneur.
1. Full Time Virtual Assistants Give You Time To Exclusively Work On High Value Tasks
If you’re struggling to keep up with the demands of your business, it might be time to hire a full-time doer. This is someone who can take care of the day-to-day tasks. This frees up your time so that you can focus on the big picture. From managing your social media accounts to handling customer service inquiries… a full-time doer can take care of the things you’re not able to do, so that you can focus on what’s most important.
Running a successful business is a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be all on your shoulders. By hiring a full-time doer, you can take some of the weight off your own shoulders and focus on the things that will help your business grow.
The thing is, when you outsource your lower-value tasks to an expert Doer… you free up time in your schedule to focus on the Genius Zone activities that only YOU can do. This is what allows you to scale your business and make your greatest impact.
The more tasks that you outsource to your Virtual Assistant… the more time you can spend on those high ticket tasks that move the needle in your business.
Essentially, the more high-value work you’re able to do… the more work you’re generating for your business… and the more money you will be generating for your business.
Soon enough, you’ll perhaps find yourself in a position where one Virtual Assistant isn’t enough to keep up with your scaling!
Hiring a part time Virtual Assistant doesn’t allow for this. A part time role doesn’t set your business up for growth, as you’re only giving yourself half the opportunity for success. Hiring a part time Virtual Assistant won’t fuel your business with the resources you need to be successful.
2. Full Time Virtual Assistants Give You The Space To Expand Your Business
Remember, it’s not just the things you’re currently doing yourself that need to be outsourced… there’s a whole bunch of things you’re NOT currently doing in your business that you should be.
And that’s not your fault. You simply don’t have the capacity while working on your own, or even with a part time Virtual Assistant!
Successful founders know this… and when they onboard their full-time Virtual Assistant, they make sure to:
- Daily consistent lead generation
- Automating all their systems
- Giving a 5-star experience to every customer
- Ensuring they never step foot in their email inbox ever again
- Conversational marketing. (That means connecting with those on your social platforms and speaking to them one on one)
If you’re not doing these things in your business… you’re missing out on key opportunities for growth. But these tasks are below your pay grade. So make sure to start incorporating these activities into your business plan today. Do this by delegating these tasks to a Virtual Assistant. You’ll be glad you did!
3. Full Time Virtual Assistants Are An Investment In Your Business And An Investment In Yourself
If you want to free up your time, energy and mental bandwidth, it might be time to consider hiring a full-time doer. Someone who can take on the tasks that are bogging you down so you have more space to focus on what’s important.
Outsourcing some of your work may seem like an expense at first, but if it means having more time and energy to focus on growth opportunities for your business… it could be one of the best investments you make this year.
So if you’re feeling stuck and unsure of how to move forward… Remember that hiring an Outsourced Doer could be the answer. With our help, you’ll be able to focus on what you do best and take your business to the next level. So book a call with one of our outsourcing specialists today to see how hiring a Doer will change your business and life.
