3 Good Reasons To Hire A Virtual Assistant!
1. Get away from your computer!
Do you love computers? Do you enjoy sitting at your desk entering transactions into your broker’s online system. How about closing worksheets? If you don’t have an assistant, you spend a lot of time with paperwork and computers. My guess is that the majority of Realtors don’t enjoy this part of their job! A virtual assistant loves being locked up with her computer, working on paperwork, and using various programs for entering data. Why not hire a virtual assistant as your transaction coordinator so you can spend your time prospecting for new clients or meeting with the ones you already have? Hiring a virtual assistant saves you from paying someone in the slower times as we work on demand.
2. Leave the social media to the pros!
Social media can be a real time drain! Do you enjoy responding and posting on social media? Are your social media accounts up to date, and do you post regularly? What are you posting? A virtual assistant knows the ins and outs of social media and would love to take this task off your list. Save yourself a lot of time by having a virtual assistant manage your social media accounts.
3. Defer the tedious tasks!
Is your contact management system up to date? Have you added your past sales to the various websites? What about your blog, have you posted lately? These are just a few of the tedious tasks a virtual assistant can help you out with. Think about tasks you dislike doing but need to be done and ask a virtual assistant to help you out.
Why should you hire a virtual assistant? You will free up a lot of time you can use to grow your business. Things you dislike doing will automatically be done. Best of all, you only pay a virtual assistant for services you are using, so in the slow times, you are paying less, in the busy times you will pay more which makes perfect business sense!
