24 Tasks You Can Outsource To A Virtual Assistant

Working with a Virtual Assistant can be a rewarding experience. Typically one of the biggest challenges when people are starting out is deciding what tasks they can outsource. Everyone needs help in different ways; but whether you’re the CEO of a company, or an independent  Author or Blogger aching for more writing time, below I have broke down the 3 main areas that tend to cross-over between industries.

Here are 24 tasks you can outsource starting today:

EMAIL & CALENDAR MANAGEMENT

The wide world of email: it has a good side and an overused side. The problem is trying to filter & sort through what’s important, what’s not, and everything in between. For some of our clients this task can take away more than 5 hours a week of time that could be much better spent. A VA can help you:

  1. Sort through emails/mark what’s important/sort through spam
  2. Reply to customer/client inquiries
  3. Chat Support
  4. Calendar management/appointment reminders
  5. Schedule appointments

GENERAL ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS

Although the administrative list can go on forever, a sampling of some tasks our Virtual Assistant’s do that are “all things admin” include:

  1. Travel Planning
  2. Internet Research
  3. Client Gifts (purchasing & sending)
  4. Personal Errands
  5. Data Entry
  6. Database Management
  7. Task Management
  8. Event Planning
  9. Reporting
  10. Expense Reporting
  11. Bookkeeping
  12. Organize Meetings/Conference Calls
  13. PowerPoint  Presentations

DIGITAL MARKETING

The world of digital marketing is big, and only getting bigger. Just when you think you’ve mastered one social channel, there’s another one that is proving to be better. Trying to stay on top of learning the ins & outs of digital marketing, whether it’s the latest email programs, hosting platforms or the hottest social channel to advertise on, can be overwhelming. Some areas you can outsource to a Virtual Assistant that will help promote you and your business are:

  1. Create & schedule email campaigns
  2. Create & send newsletters
  3. Social Media Management (create campaigns for each channel/schedule posts)
  4. Moderate & reply to comments on different channels
  5. Help with blog postings (finding images, editing, posting)
  6. General Website management (html coding/manage subscribers)

There are many other smaller tasks that could be added to this list, but these are typically the areas that people are needing help with, regardless of your industry or company size. Once you have settled in on what areas you need assistance with and the tasks within those areas you’re able to outsource, you’re ready to start outsourcing some of that workload. Are you ready to bring the balance back to your life?
