Small businesses have already realized the many benefits of outsourcing their administrative functions and tasks to virtual assistants. Some of these advantages include not having to provide space for an administrative assistant. Since the majority of these businesses operate from home offices, there is simply not enough room to accommodate another body. Some zoning laws prohibit having employees or clients on the premises. These small business owners also don’t have to share their computers and other equipment nor have to provide office supplies.

Due to the dire situation of the economy, other types of businesses, for example, mid-size businesses are faced with having to find ways of reducing operational expenses. One solution is to reduce labor cost. Working with a Virtual Assistant rather than hiring an employee for office support can save you approximately $40,000 over the course of one year. Please visit Cost Comparison Chart for a detailed breakdown on how to save this amount on labor cost. When you outsource to a Virtual Assistant, you don’t have to pay for employee-related expenses, benefits, as well as down time. Small business owners and entrepreneurs have already discovered this method of saving money.

There are also intangible benefits in outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant. A Virtual Assistant is also an entrepreneur and business owner; therefore, they also can pass along business tips to you. These tips can be anything from how to improve the operation of your business to certain tax information. Virtual assistants are faced with the same business issues that you are.

Overall, with the downturn in our economy how to cut back on expenses has become one of the top issues. Working with a Virtual Assistant is a possible solution to reducing your labor cost.
