Leveraged Lifestyle Podcast
Catherine shares great advice about hiring your Virtual Assistant and as someone who has extensive experience and expertise in the arena of Virtual Assistants shares some key steps that can be followed to make sure you hire a VA that will have a positive impact on your business and immediately increase business productivity.
Getting it right is key when taking on a VA and Catherine has created a range of resources available in the VIVA club, where you can also find great VA’s who want to get started in your business making a difference now.
Improve your business to-do list – know what are you currently doing, what do you should be doing, and what you want to do so you can prioritise.
Categorise tasks as ‘do’- high value, ‘manage’ – can be done by someone else with management oversight and ‘leverage’ – low-value tasks that can be outsourced to others.
Creating the job description and advert - Creating a detailed job description means your virtual assistant can get straight to work increasing your business productivity.
You need to be really clear about the role you have and the skills needed.
Systemising for applications – you need to systemise as much as possible. Using tools such as google suite and skype will create a system you can use easily – all available in the viva club.
Creating job offer and contract – a starting VA working full time can cost as little as £150 a month. You can hire a VA for a particular project or for ongoing tasks within your business.
Reaping the rewards ongoing support and management – reports are a vital part of managing VA’s you need to know what’s going on and can offer support if required.
Virtual Assistants make our businesses work and we couldn’t do it without them.
‘Hire by role, It helped us to get the right person’
‘I can task things at the end of the day and find them completed and in my inbox the following morning’
‘You need to invest time and detail in the process to get the right VA and the VIVA club can help with this’
