What are the advantages of hiring a VA?
Many sole operators, small business owners, working parents, and busy homemakers could use extra help on occasion, perhaps even on a regular, part-time basis. However, most can't afford to hire a full or part-time assistant. By hiring a Virtual Assistant rather than hiring an employee, you pay for help only when you need it. VAs typically work on an hourly or project basis. By hiring a VA, you pay for help only when you need it, and avoid the hassles that go along with hiring a full- or part-time employee. For instance, you:
- Pay no federal and state payroll taxes
- Don't have to provide worker's compensation coverage
- Don't have to provide office space, equipment or supplies
- Don't have to provide employee benefits such as holiday or sick pay.
The other main advantage to hiring a VA is that you can outsource work that requires specialised skills, like marketing, website creation and maintenance or copywriting, to a specialised VA rather than employ a marketing person or spending more than you can afford on consultants.
