Dos and Don
12/1/2020
A virtual assistant can save several hours of your work in a day- but only when you know how to make the best out of working with them.

You need to know how to manage your virtual assistants to not only improve their productivity, but also run your business smoothly. Though many entrepreneurs find it easier , still some find working with a virtual assistant a daunting task. 

To help you here with the process, we have put together our tips to understand how to communicate, manage and get your deliverable on time when you work with a virtual assistant. And, we have included the possible do’s and don’ts of working with virtual assistants.

The Do’s -

Communication is the key! It is important to clearly set your expectations to your virtual assistants. Communicate their responsibilities, define deadlines and give them details of your availability. It is better to define a workflow process even before hiring the virtual assistants. This will be helpful in understanding your expectations and hiring the right candidate with capabilities that match your expectations.

Be respectful and reasonable! Setting up meetings and repeatedly canceling them at the last minute is not okay. It’s because, unlike your in-house employees, they have other clients to work with. And, in most cases, though your virtual assistants can go above and beyond to get the work done. Believe your emergency is not theirs, as we explained before, it’s better to communicate the deadlines and your virtual assistants’ availability prior to starting the project.

The Don’ts -

Avoid Micromanagement! Trust your virtual assistant to complete the task on time. This could be a better way to see if they are the best fit for your business. Micromanaging may lead to less productivity and low-quality deliverable, and sure will not help clear your plate of the tasks sooner. Maintain an open channel of communication with your assistant so that they can reach out to you for clarification. 

Avoid changing directions! A good Virtual assistant who has time planned for your work might have accommodated your work by turning down other clients. So, it’s better to hire virtual assistants only when you're clear and sure about your plan. And, even if there were times when you need to change, make sure there’s something else they can do for you to use the hours you’ve purchased. 

Choose and Work with the Best!

Sure, a virtual assistant can be a greatest asset to your business, working with them can boost productivity, meanwhile reducing the labor cost needed to hire a full-time resource.
