Spend Less Time Thinking about Your Business this Holiday Season
That sounds like a nice goal, doesn’t it? What if there was a way to make it true? What if you could spend more time with your loved ones during the Christmas season? What if you could really be present with them during the holidays instead of thinking about your business.
There is a way.
Delegate to Your Virtual Assistant
There are so many great reasons to hire a VA. They can handle the behind the scenes work while you focus on client-facing projects. Virtual Assistants can manage your social media accounts and grow your followings. But most importantly, if you have a VA, you can have more free time to spend how you like. Let’s take a look at some key ways a VA can help ease your stress this holiday season.
1. Website Management
Let’s face it.Website glitches and issues always seem to occur at the most inconvenient times – like during the holidays.
If your business traditionally sees an upswing in visitors around the holidays for whatever reason, you certainly don’t want glitches to affect
your new audience’s opinion of your website. A VA can monitor and fix these issues as they arise, so you don’t have to worry about them. Your website visitors will have a good experience and your time with your loved ones hasn’t been compromised.
2. Social Media Management
Get ready for an influx of messages on social media. A study by Sprout Social projects that retailers will receive 75% more daily messages from now through the end of the year than they have received in the rest of 2018. The study also reiterates that it is critical for small businesses to engage with their audience, as posting deals and gift ideas is simply not enough. A VA can interact with your audience on social, helping build brand loyalty for your business. This way you can enjoy more time away from your cell phone or computer, but your social media pages will stay active.
3. Calendar Management
The holidays are a busy time for everyone, but especially for business owners like you. On top of the typical holiday hustle of finalizing Christmas gifts, entertaining guests, hosting family from out of town, and enjoying the magic of the season, you have more on your plate, right? You have your last-minute holiday products you’re selling. You have year-end meetings. Your annual clients are realizing they have money left in their budgets and want to squeeze in one more meeting with you. It can be overwhelming at times. Having a Virtual Assistant can help you manage all of this. A VA can handle your calendar, making sure that you only have one place to be at any given time. Leaving your scheduling in their capable hands, you’ll be able to relax more when you go home.
4. All the Other Odds and Ends
You finally took the time to clean up your desk and you found a project you were supposed to finish by the end of the year. Maybe you decided to go through your online checklists one more time and you found a series of meetings that needed to be transcribed. Or perhaps you remembered a data entry project you need completed because it will impact your first campaign of the new year. Take a deep breath and turn to your VA. That’s what she’s here for, after all. Virtual Assistants can tackle that last minute project or finalize those transcriptions so you don’t have to spend your evenings working late. Go see your child’s winter pageant or go to happy hour with your friends. Your VA will make sure that everything is finished.
