What is a virtual assistant (VA)?

A virtual assistant is a remote worker you can trust to fulfill a task online. Tasks delegated to VAs are often those that you find repetitive and less enjoyable or those that are outside the scope of your expertise.

These may include clerical or secretarial tasks required for your business to function smoothly.

Among these are e-mail management, bookkeeping, and appointment scheduling. Assistants usually given these administrative tasks are called General Virtual Assistants.

You may also delegate to your virtual assistants major job roles such as web development, project management, and digital content marketing.

Assistants who are assigned these specific tasks have background and training to equip them with the skills needed to accomplish them. They are called Specialized Virtual Assistants.

When hiring virtual assistants, it is important to note that each type of VA has a particular role they excel in.

In other words, they have individual fortes and therefore shouldn’t be expected to be able to work on tasks not right up their alley.

Acknowledging this is crucial in order to maintain a harmonious employee-employer relationship and to prevent burnout for your virtual assistant.
