The question, then, is; who should business owners entrust the responsibility of implementing these marketing strategies to? For this, Virtual Assistants are the way to go!
WHY GO FOR VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS?
They work remotely to handle any and all facets of digital marketing and administrative work – especially the tasks that are repetitive and time-consuming – as designated by their employer. Aside from that, hiring a virtual assistant costs less compared to hiring full-time. A study by Global Workplace Analytics in 2021 showed that an employer may observe over $11,000 in cost savings by hiring a remote workforce over on-site employees. Saving between 40-70% of operating costs is possible because business owners won’t need to consider hidden costs, such as desks, computers, etc.
Virtual Assistants are not only cost-efficient but are also a low-risk, high-reward investment. Some digital marketing companies can say that VAs boost the company’s productivity by saving the company’s resources, widening the customer base, and many more. Of course, the specifics need to be laid out before making a business decision. Therefore, another question then needs to be asked.
