|Debbie Lynn Butler the E-Content Butler|
Let’s clear up some misconceptions. A virtual assistant is not physically present in your office. S/he may also focus on a particular niche—my specialty is content creation and publishing—that has little to do with administrative assistance. Thus, a VA does not
• Personally greet visitors in your company lobby
• Physically step into a meeting to fix the problem with the _______ (PowerPoint slides, sound system, lights)
• Make coffee for your staff
• Order and pick up lunch
• Pick up your dry cleaning or run other errands for you
• Provide a physical presence in your office in your absence
Even if the task you have in mind is the VA’s specialty, only your own employees
• Must work set hours and specific days of the week
• Get your approval for vacations and time off
• Drop everything because poor planning has created an emergency that must be dealt with immediately
A virtual assistant is an independent business owner whose services you purchase and who schedules your work to fit in with other jobs being completed for others who have also contracted VA services.
If you must have someone at your beck and call, right now, in your office, doing whatever needs to be done, you need an employee NOT a virtual assistant.
