Scheduling, Meetings, and Calendar management: You can hire a VA to manage your personal tasks like a schedule for you, meetings, take phone calls, inbound calls, and event management. Following is a list of tasks that a back-up assistant can do:
Email Marketing or Email Management: You can hire a VA to manage your emails while you are busy with other tasks. Like sending emails to potential clients or replying to your happy clients on your behalf.
Project Management: A VA could help keep track of projects and get updates on the progress made within each project. Like how it is going, what the stats are, the Profit and Loss statement (PL), and much more.
Administrative Tasks like Data Entry or Research: A lot of research is done online these days, so hiring someone who can do data entry for reports in an efficient manner will save time and money as well.
Customer Service/Support Assistance: If it's difficult for you to respond quickly to customer queries because of workloads then you might find that a VA would assist with this task better than yourself since they may have more time available in their day due to lack of personal work.
Note-taking: Invite your VA's in the meeting so they can note the main points of the meeting for you to go over.
