The Study

Between attracting new customers, keeping current ones happy, managing cash flow, and growing a team, running a business is a never-ending job. 

A study by Sage found that small businesses, “spend nearly 120 working-days per year on administrative tasks, approximately 5% of the total manpower for the average small and medium sized business.” For American businesses, that 5% has a potential gross value add (GVA) of a whopping $325 billion per year.

But, that’s not all; Sage’s research also found that “small businesses, specifically, spend between 230 and 240 days per year (on average) on administration–accounting for 17% of their total manpower each year. That’s why Virtual Assistants have quickly become businesses’ problem solvers and revenue generators, no matter their size. 

A VA can be defined as an employee, freelancer, or independent contractor who works online and performs a variety of tasks to help individuals or businesses. Virtual assistants can offer a lot of the services an in-house secretary would traditionally handle: data entry, transcription, scheduling, copywriting, programming, design, and other services. They usually work at home, and typically never meet their clients in-person.

Just imagine how much your business could grow if you and your mid-level, and senior-level employees had more time to strengthen your relationship with existing clients and field new ones, instead bogged down with time-consuming, administrative work. Another bonus? Reduced costs for salaries, training, and less wasted time because VAs are task-based workers.
