Can I afford a Virtual Assistant? with Jaime Jay

Hiring a virtual assistant is a step that many people consider taking but rarely take. One of the biggest questions that they often have when considering it is “can I afford it.” While this is a valid question, more benefits can be gained from hiring an offshore assistant than many people realize, and investing in virtual assistant services can help your organization grow quickly and more effectively.

Can You Afford It vs. Can You Afford Not To

Asking yourself if you can afford to hire a virtual assistant is a great question to ask yourself if your enterprise is still in its growth stage. The bigger question, however, is can you afford not to, in light of all that they can help you accomplish and achieve.


The first thing that many people consider is the price. They see the price and they often immediately wash their hands of the idea in favor of retaining that bottom line. However, not being able to see beyond the cost is something that can put a lot of people off, and can prevent them from gaining many of the benefits.

Having a Virtual Assistant can Boost your Productivity

Your virtual assistant will be able to help you with countless aspects of your personal and professional life, freeing you up to be far more productive. One of the biggest destroyers of productivity is administrative and clerical work. Replying to emails, planning & scheduling meetings, and placing & answering phone calls, can free up incredible amounts of time in your daily life. The investment you make in a virtual assistant can help you boost your productivity and efficiency to levels you’ve never experienced before.

Delegating More Complex Tasks to your Virtual Assistant

Depending on the virtual assistant or hiring agency you work with, you may also be able to find an assistant with skills that exceed their US counterparts. This can lead to you trusting them with far more complex tasks, like taking over your social media management, helping manage projects with other departments of your business, and more. This can free up even more of your time to focus on growing your organization and stay focused on much more high-priority projects.

What it comes down to is thinking about the big picture. Hiring a virtual assistant is an investment in your organization, and you should expect to see a commensurate increase in your business productivity and effectiveness. If you try to maintain all of the administrative and clerical work yourself, not only will you spend a far greater number of hours sitting in front of a computer doing menial tasks, but you’ll be delaying more essential business functions. Having a personal assistant means you’ll never have to put anything on the “back burner” because you’ve always got kitchen help.

You won’t have to worry about a payroll budget overrun during particularly busy months when you’re clocking more hours personally, and requiring a much heavier workload to be placed on your virtual assistant. The monthly cost will be the same either way, so you can focus your attention on where it needs to be.
