Virtual Assistant: Is it a good business move?

Bookkeeper Office Shed

Virtual assistants (VA’s) can play an incredibly supportive role for sole traders and small businesses. Busy tradies have an endless stream of administrative tasks, which can be challenging if you are running your business from the road – taking calls and booking appointments on the go.

Virtual assistant services give you an edge over your competitors, allowing you to schedule work seamlessly while you remain on the tools.

VA’s can provide a range of services to support a tradies business, including:

  • data entry
  • general admin
  • phone call answering
  • job scheduling
  • email services
  • job quoting
  • paying invoices and bills
  • bookkeeping.

If you are looking to grow your business, outsourcing key admin tasks can be a great way of freeing up your time so you can focus on the tasks that generate income. You can then become strategic about the work that you prioritise and the work that you delegate.

Office Shed have a team of professional virtual assistants based in Australia, who will work with you to grow and manage your business. We can be a conduit between you and your clients, simplifying processes and acting as a virtual member of your team. We have experience working with all types of trades and use a range of job management software systems that are designed for tradies.

Having a virtual assistant can be extremely beneficial in the management of your trades business. Contact Office Shed today for more information on our virtual assistant services.
