Do you need to get more work done but have no time or inclination for hiring and managing an employee? The simple solution is to hire a virtual assistant! Get the help you need by someone who is dedicated to doing specific tasks. Virtual assistants are people who work on the same type of tasks all day long and are experts at what they do. This type of solution proves to be not only more efficient but also more cost effective. Today you may need help designing flyers but tomorrow it might be contact management, search engine optimization or even lead generation. Hire an expert for just a little more than you’d pay an employee, without any of the employment commitments.
Here are some websites that you can check out for your virtual assistance needs:
- Fiverr.com– A generic website for any type of business. You can search their listings for a contractor or simply put up a bid for a specific job such as a flyer design, info sheet or brochure. Multiple sellers will bid on your job and you can choose who you ultimately hire by reading their profiles and reviews.
- Upwork– Formerly known as eLance, Upwork is a place where you can put up larger projects and see a much broader spectrum of help that’s out there.
- Creative Agent Solutions– Laura Monroe’s website offers virtual online support for real estate agents and their businesses.
- Kim Hughes– Another real estate specific site that provides services dedicated to real estate professionals.
Browse those sites to satisfy all your virtual assistance needs! If you’re thinking about hiring an administrative assistant, make sure to view last week’s blog article “Give Yourself a Raise” and see how hiring an admin can help you earn more money!
