Did that headline get your attention? You might be thinking, “Yes, I need an office staff. I am wearing far too many hats and I’d like a day off every once in a while.” If that’s you, a virtual assistant can help improve your quality of life.

The fact of the matter is, you are pulling yourself up by your bootstraps – but you could probably use a little help once in a while. Maybe more than once in a while. Actually, you could probably grow your business faster if you had a few spare hands handling the non-core functions of your company. The problem is, you don’t have the budget for a full-time staff.

Enter the virtual assistant. The virtual assistant gives you the best of both words: no full-time commitment and the assurance of help when you need it. You don’t have to go through the traditional recruiting and hiring process with a virtual assistant because companies like Davinci Virtual do the vetting for you. And you don’t have to shell out a full-time salary and benefits to your virtual assistant, either. Davinci has that covered.

To be sure, hiring a virtual assistant is a cost-effective, time-efficient way to get the help you need quickly to handle administrative tasks such as appointment scheduling, online research and order-taking. Virtual assistants work in remote locations, hence the ‘virtual’ descriptor, and use their own equipment. That adds to the cost savings of this alternative staffing strategy.

At the end of the day, virtual assistants give you ultimate flexibility. You can decide how many hours of help you need each week, and it can vary from week to week. The remote control, to so speak, is in your hands when you hire virtual assistants.
