If you’re like most small business owners, you’re probably skeptical of the benefits of outsourcing administrative or social media tasks. You may be concerned with the ROI and wonder if paying an additional employee or service will pay off.
The truth is that outsourcing some of these vital roles to virtual business assistants, for as much or as little time as you need, will increase your productivity, your relationship with your customers, and your profits.
Have Time To “Do You”
Administrative work and social media marketing are probably not your passions or the reason you chose to be a business owner. Instead of spending time on tasks that you either don’t enjoy or don’t do well, you could be out there doing what only you are capable of doing: developing and selling your product or service. Outsourcing will allow you to be freed up to pursue your passion and your purpose.
Make Your Workflow Efficient
Even the most dedicated and ambitious business owners struggle with procrastinating these tasks. This can be incredibly disruptive to your workflow, and your overall enthusiasm for your business.
What’s worse is that your customers or clients will also suffer from this lack of focus. Frustrated and increasingly impatient, your clients will start to complain that you’re simply not providing them with what you promised. Don’t risk a bad business reputation! By outsourcing the jobs you’re not passionate about, you will have more time to focus on delivering the best product or service available to your customers. Making your existing clients happy will have a positive ripple effect that will ultimately land you more sales.
Sometimes we’re so busy trying to make new sales, we forget the value of former clients. We forget to cultivate older relationships with already-satisfied customers because we simply don’t feel like we have the time to touch base with them.
However, hiring someone to fulfill basic customer service and customer retention tasks is a must if you want to grow a successful, long-term, sustainable business. Having a virtual business assistant do the important work of touching base with old clients will lead to repeat sales, increased brand recognition and customer loyalty. These are the very things that will keep you in business for years to come.
Let Outsourcing Pay For Itself
Better and more focused customer service. Increased business productivity. All of this can be achieved by outsourcing these projects to a virtual business assistant. It will lead to more sales as well, which actually covers the cost of outsourcing.
You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain: higher profits, less stress, and happier clients. In short, a successful and sustainable business.
