Six Tasks You Can Outsource To a Virtual Assistant Today


Are you on the fence about hiring a Virtual Assistant (VA)?


Don't worry, you are not alone! A lot of small business owners and influencers struggle with the idea of handing over some of the essential tasks to another person or team. We get it. You built this business from the ground up. You have dumped your time, blood, sweat, and tears into it and we get that.


Once you wrap your head around the idea of hiring a Virtual Assistant the next thing to do is to figure out what tasks you can have them do. This post will be focused on the top six things we help our clients with.


Social Media Management

Social Media Management is one of our largest requests. You can outsource something as simple as establishing a social media strategy all the way to just handing the entire thing over to someone else.


Here are a few examples of Social Media Management Tasks you can outsource:

  • Social Media Graphic Design

  • Caption Writing

  • Hashtag Strategy

  • Creating Social Media Strategy

  • Optimizing Profiles

  • Daily Engagement

  • Video Editing

  • Posting & Scheduling

  • Monthly Growth Reports

Blog Management

A Virtual Assistant can also help you run your website's blog. Just like social Social Media Management, you can outsource a little bit or the entire thing.


A Few Examples of Blog Management tasks:

  • Blog Post Writing

  • Proof Reading

  • Research

  • Uploading to Website

  • SEO Optimizing

  • Graphic Creation

  • Creation of Social Media Graphics for the blog

  • Scheduling of blog posts on Social Media

Lead Magnet Creation

Lead magnets are small freebies that you give away in exchange for an email address on your website. They are an excellent strategy for building your email list and they are typically in the form of a PDF. The thing about Lead Magnets is that they need to be updated regularly. We recommend every 4-6 weeks.


A Virtual Assitant can help you with staying on top of your Lead Magnet schedule, creating and editing the PDFs as well as doing the research for them (if needed).


SEO Optimization

Another thing we get tons of requests for is SEO optimization. SEO can affect many different parts of your business but the end goal is to make it easier for your content to be found through search engines and social media.


There are three different areas we focus on when it comes to SEO optimization:

  1. Social Media SEO

  2. Blog SEO

  3. Website SEO

Data Entry

Have a large chunk of data that needs to be filled in or entered? Send it over to a Virtual Assistant! We can take care of that data and have it sent back to you within a few days.


Transcription

Do you need the written version of an audio or video file?


Wondering what types of files you can have transcribed? Here is a small list:

  • Podcasts

  • Instagram / Facebook Lives

  • Youtube Videos

  • Meeting Audio

  • Train of Thought Audios

The tasks that a business owner decides to hand over to a Virtual Assistant are unique for every situation and these are just a few small roles or tasks that can be outsourced, delegated to a Virtual Assistant for your business needs.
