Do you need an extra hand to run your growing small or medium-sized business? Perhaps someone to update your website, create a new design, help with your social media updates, gathering customers reviews or almost anything that you can outsource.
But what if you can’t afford to hire, or have space for a full-time employee? Well, your best bet would be to find and hire a Canadian virtual assistant to help keep you on top of your game without spending unneeded capital on a full-time employee.
With a Canadian virtual assistant, you can go back to focusing on your core business needs and leave the daily tasks that bog you down to an outsourced office or design professionals.
A VA (virtual assistant) is an independent contractor who helps small to medium-sized businesses with their overflow or core tasks. VA’s work from their own offices or a Virtual Assistant Company office. They can help with almost any tasks that are usually handled by in-house employees.
According to the Canadian Association of Virtual Assistants (CAVA), Virtual assistants enable business owners to get the help they need with administrative tasks, marketing, CRM management, web design or even call answering and sales, freeing them to concentrate on the tasks that generate the most revenue.
