Congratulations! You’ve reached the point in your business where it’s time to start delegating!
Growing your own business is phenomenal, and doing it for yourself brings the most amazing sense of satisfaction and achievement.
But it can also bring stress, over-tiredness, loss of focus, chaos and burnout to name but a few.
When these downsides start to worm their way in, it’s time to step back and appreciate the scale of all you have achieved, give yourself a huge pat on the back and admit to yourself that it’s time to get some help!
Reaching a stage in your business where you need to ask for help, need to delegate, need to outsource, need to go from Me to We is a HUGE milestone and is something well worth a little celebratory dance at the very least. It means you’re doing it RIGHT!
You don’t have to battle on, working more and more hours, spending less and less time outside of your business. You have options!
Let Me Save You Some Time…
So, What Options Do You Have?
I’m a Freelance Virtual Assistant. I’m the person who loves those business tasks that you no longer have time for or no longer have the enthusiasm for. Is your time really best spent doing your admin? Keeping your Social Media up to date? Logging transactions? Creating documents?
How Much is your free time worth to you?
Have a little think about how much you charge for your products or services. How much £ is an hour of your time worth? My hourly rate is £28 per hour. Aren’t you better using that hour of your time to generate an income rather than stuck at your desk fighting your way through something someone else can do for you?
How To Decide What To Outsource
Make a List! Take a moment to write down everything you’ve done in your business this week. Now grab some highlighters and highlight all of the tasks that you, and only you can do.
What’s left is your starting point for delegation. Which of those tasks are the most time consuming? Which are the ones you really dislike? Those are the ones you look to outsource first. For every task you dislike, someone out there loves it! Usually me, I’m a bit strange like that…
How I can help you…
E-mail Marketing & Newsletters
One of my favourite tasks – from helping you build your subscriber list to designing eye-catching marketing e-mails and newsletters worthy of an “open”, whilst monitoring analytics to help improve your open rates to ensure the best use of your lists.
Basic Admin duties – pretty much anything can be done remotely these days, so whether you need someone to check your e-mails, or type you up a letter, I can help.
Social Media Administration
From set-up to content procurement, creation and scheduling – I can help you manage your business social media pages to help you stay on brand in your crowd’s spotlight.
Data Recording and document creation in your online or spreadsheet accounting systems.
If your e-mail inbox is cluttered, disorganised and full of e-mails you never even read – I can fix this! I can unsubscribe you from e-mails which no longer serve your purpose, organise your e-mails in to specific categories and let you see the e-mails you should be actioning clearly.
Surveys & Reporting
Need feedback from your customers or clients? I can create online forms to gather the information you require and present it to you in a format which works for you.
Software/app set up
Set up of useful online tools which will allow you to stay organised, keep track of your tasks/notes and stay in touch with your team. Tell me what you need, and I’ll find the best app for you and set it up, so all you need to do is use it.
Document creation & formatting
I can create any document to suit your needs, format one you already have, check for mistakes and make it look great as well as practical. Whether you need an infographic, letter template, record management, registration form… I’ll make it work for you.
My current rate is £28 per hour, billable on the last day of the month. My services are available for both ongoing and one-off projects.
Got a task to outsource that isn’t covered here?
These are just an overview of what I can do for your business. If you have something specific in mind that you want to get off your desk and on to mine, just give me a shout. There’s a good chance I’ll be able to help, and if I can’t, I’ll know someone who can.
