If you’re reading this, it’s because you’re trying to leverage, delegate, grow, or maximize your consulting business. The recurring concern in consulting firms is the increase in productivity, these companies are known for providing a specialized and independent advisory service to other companies in different industries to find solutions to one or more of their problems. Keeping up with the ever-increasing minimum wage can be difficult when also trying to keep up with clients’ increasing pricing demands. However, your business needs to continue growing and so does your human capital. So, what’s the solution? Virtual Assistants!

Virtual assistance has proven to be very effective not only for startups but also for established businesses looking for ways to improve efficiency and production. VAs are the professionals who work for your organization remotely, helping you with administrative, technical, social, and many other types of tasks, changing the game completely. You may think that you can't afford a VA if you have a small business, restaurant, real estate, or don't need them if your business is already established, but VAs can be a game-changer for almost any business. After all, time is money, and by having a VA you can maximize your business to outperform the competition.

Hiring a virtual assistant brings enormous benefits. We all know that CEOs of companies try to be active in all areas of the company, but it is not easy to be a project manager, administrator, social media manager, content writer, accountant, and customer service representative all at the same time, this only creates fatigue and frustration. That is why having a VA on your side is completely necessary, especially to perform those monotonous tasks. With the help of a VA, you can delegate tasks such as data entry, follow-up with clients, answering queries, administrative tasks, personal assistance, support service, digital marketing, etc. In this way, you can easily manage your workload and focus on doing your best for the successful development and growth of your business.

VAs help by reducing the response time to inquiries, sending instant responses, assisting calls, and are a specialized talent with years of experience, ideal to contributing to the service of consultants. Because they work remotely, you could hire different assistants in a neighboring country in your same time zone. VAs can even create strategies to measure their performance and thus see the scope of the work produced by them. If you have the option of getting the qualitative work at a comparatively lower price, I don't think you will abstain from this talent pool. Virtual assistants are a trusted source for quality resources and the reason behind this is the productivity they provide.

In addition to this, according to statistics, remote workers rate their productivity a 7.7/10 while internal employees have rated their productivity at 6.5/10. These numbers clearly show that remote workers (VAs) consider themselves more productive than local employees. Therefore, whatever type of business an individual is dealing with, be it a startup or an established company, virtual assistants will make a big difference.

Another benefit of hiring a VA is saving time and money compared to hiring a full-time employee. As a consultant, you could surely benefit from delegating some administrative tasks and elevating today. Change the rules of your game!
