The Rise of Businesses Working Remotely

Trends in remote business setup have risen over the past years. Along with the continuous increase in numbers, there is no doubt on the sound benefits it contributes to a companies’ success. Because of this more businesses are exponentially considering outsourcing operations and bringing on Virtual Assistants. 

When exploring options, many business owners are confronted with questions such as whether to hire locally-based Virtual Assistants or hire overseas Virtual Assistants located in countries such as the Philippines or India.

Virtual Assistants & Why You Need Them

Before we dive into the decision-making considerations, let us first define what Virtual Assistants are. 

According to Investopedia (Kenton 2020), a Virtual Assistant is an independent contractor who provides administrative support and services to clients while operating outside of the client’s office. 

Virtual Assistants provide diverse business skills offerings, allowing you to select which ones will serve your needs the most. Finding the right Virtual Assistants with the appropriate skills can ease your business worries. You could assign some or all, but not limited to, the following tasks:

  1. Administrative Assistance
  2. Graphic Designs and Video Editing
  3. Lead Generation
  4. Telecommunications
  5. SEO/Internet Marketing
  6. Hospitality and Customer Care

As many business owners have trouble juggling tasks and end up taking too many roles within their company, hiring a Virtual Assistant can lessen the risk of getting stuck, allowing you to focus on essential matters and explore more business opportunities. 

The Smart Business Decision: Hiring an Overseas Virtual Assistant
