By working with a Virtual Assistant…

You SAVE over $49,000.00 per year!

Although a Virtual Assistant’s hourly rate is more than the employee’s rate, you save the cost of benefits and overhead that would have to be applied to the new employee’s wage. Virtual Assistants are usually more experienced, more efficient, and better connected than the employee; therefore, you’ll need to devote far less time to the project to get the same results, only 1040 hours a year versus 2,080 for the new employee.

Remember, with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the time on task by the minute! No more paying for socializing, hour-long lunches or frequent trips to the bathroom.

Your employee’s 8-hour day can be crunched into 3-4 hours with a Virtual Assistant.

Simply put, you should retain the services of a Virtual Assistant because it’s more cost-effective and virtual assistants go above and beyond the normal assistant’s duties to impact your own productivity. No task is too big or small for a Virtual Assistant to handle. Even if you only have one hour of work a month for a Virtual Assistant to do, a VA can (and will) do it.
