It does not matter whether you call it virtual assistance, freelancing, online secretarial services or virtual administrative support. What matters is that it is becoming increasingly popular both for people working from home, and for small business owners. As a small business owner it certainly makes sense employing contractors on this basis, as it gives you the competitive advantage in the following ways:
Access to superior talent.
You no longer need to try to compete with bigger companies to get the best employees. You can engage a highly professional person for exactly the number of hours you need.
Reduced overhead costs.
As you rarely have to pay for healthcare benefits, paid vacations or retirement packages, you can save an average of 53% by employing workers virtually.
The risk of employing the wrong person full-time is minimized. You can contract online services for as short as an hour to test whether this working relationship will be successful. If you are not happy with an online service provider, you can move on to someone else. You can end your relationship with the service provider at any time.
If you employ someone for a specific project, once the project is done, you stop paying. You are not obliged to keep them on your payroll.
When you have identified a need, you can appoint someone within a very short time frame, which means quick turnaround times and bigger profits.
