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 £30 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…
Got a WordPress website? Excellent – my favourite! I love to edit, update, add blogs, create pages, add membership sites, shops, links, sign-up forms etc etc! If maintaining your WordPress website gives you a headache, get that burden off your list and on to mine!
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.
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.
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.
If you run a membership site for your clients and customers but creating new courses and uploading new files and content takes up too much of your time, all you need to do is create the content and leave the rest to me!
I do love a bit of editing, whether that be audio or video for podcasting/youtube/course content. It IS time consuming, I hear ya, so if your time is better spent elsewhere rather than fiddling around making cuts and inserting frames, let me know!
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 £30 per hour, billable on the last day of the month. My services are available for both ongoing and one-off projects, with only 1 hour minimum time charge per month – you’re not locked in to a retainer at any point, all I ask is you give me a rough idea of how much of my time you will need at the start of the month. If you need more of my time, with enough notice that’s not a problem! If you need less than you estimated, again, not a problem! If we work together and communicate, I’ll always have the time you need, when you need it, and you won’t be charged for any time you didn’t use!
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.
