Hey friends! No, I’m not out of town again today. Instead, when I accepted Amber’s generous guest post offer, I started realizing that I would love to feature more guest posts around these parts. So, I did what anyone would do when they realize that. I started reaching out, first with Suzanna. I’ve been following her on Twitter for some time now, and I was so excited for her when she recently launched her virtual assistant services. I wanted to have her write a post to share how VA’s can help freelancers, too, and I think she did such a wonderful job. Without further ado.. Here’s Suzanna!
There’s no denying it. Freelancers have a lot to keep up with. From responding to the loads of emails in your inbox to invoicing clients, the list sometimes seems never ending. Not to mention, if you blog on top of freelancing… the whole thing can become quite overwhelming. With the increased use of technology, virtual assistants are becoming more and more common in the freelancing world.
If you’re like most of us, handing off a portion of your work to someone else is just plain scary to think about. However, the benefits of finding a VA are something you won’t want to go another day without.
Need help managing your many social media accounts? A VA can help with that. Ready to set up an email letter but aren’t sure where to start (or just don’t have time to keep up with it)? A VA can also help with that. The list of services is different for each assistant, however, those that specialize in blogging and freelancing will be able to help with many of the daily tasks you dread doing. Most people waste a lot of time putting off every-day tasks when they could hire a virtual assistant to do those things for them (and increase productivity in turn). What does that mean, exactly? More time to do the things you love. That’s what it means. Contrary to what people believe, you don’t have to love every aspect of owning a business in order to be an entrepreneur.

If you have thought about hiring a VA in the past, or are warming up to the idea after reading this post, I urge you to reach out and ask questions. Many times, you won’t even realize all a VA can do for you, until you ask. Let’s take my services page, for example. I list the things I am asked to do most often, but definitely not everything I am able to do or have done in the past for clients. The beauty of working with a virtual assistant, is customizing their services to fit your needs. This removes any gaps, and ensures you have a flawless system to help your business succeed.
