Ensuring You Have a Productive Virtual Assistant
Here are some tips on how to ensure that you have a Productive Virtual Assistant:
Employ People You Can Rely OnGetting someone to be with your business is easy. But, getting the right person is not. So, it is a "must" that you know what questions to ask when hiring a Virtual Assistant. Trust your emotional intelligence. At the end of the day, you're not going to be there to monitor or supervise them. Instead, you will have to rely on them to get things done and deliver their work with excellence.
Constant CommunicationAs Tony Gaskins says, "Communication to a relationship is like oxygen to life. Without it, it dies.". Just like in a business perspective, there's nothing more important than communication when managing your Virtual Assistant. Seeking out communication platforms to discuss reports and progress is crucial. And with today’s technology, we can use several applications to bridge this gap. Some tools that you and your VA can use are Skype, Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, and email.
Frequent Touch BaseCommunication is vital. This is the most effective way to ensure that your Virtual Assistant is productive. Getting in touch with them will lead to having a good relationship and should also allow you to be updated on their specific tasks or what they are working on. Having frequent touch base with your VA will help you get a better understanding on how tasks are done and know the challenges that your VA has in completing their task. Productivity is the key to a successful partnership with your VA. Ensuring that the job is done in quality will help you and your business grow.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.
One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
