Flexibility, work-life balance, and a room to learn new things – these are just a few reasons why you should choose to work remotely.
Due to the pandemic, many people in the Philippines are looking for virtual assistant jobs. It is a solution for those who hate traffic, don’t want to wake up early, or even for those who got laid off as their employer’s company closed.
But what is a virtual assistant, and what are the tasks given to them?
A VA or virtual assistant is someone who works for a client from the comfort of their home. Many virtual assistants specialize in a particular field, such as working just for real estate companies, while others provide general services. The duties of a virtual assistant depend on the client’s needs.
Here are some tasks that you might do as a virtual assistant.
Your client will assign tasks to you so they focus more on things that they can only action. As a virtual assistant, you will help your client with their day-to-day activities. These involve tasks like email management, calendar management, file management, and a receptionist as you need to answer calls for your client. Being a virtual assistant is almost the same as being an executive assistant but working at home.
Lead generation is a vital part of your client’s business as this may increase future sales. It is the process of looking for potential customers who are interested in your product or service. Having the right mindset is vital in becoming a virtual assistant. It is not just about completing the task assigned to you, but you also need to look for ways to help your client’s business grow.
Have you ever thought about how influential people in social media created their posts? Well, they might have a virtual assistant who helped them manage their social media. Content creation can be creating a blog, editing content, or scheduling a post on Facebook.
Your client might ask you to perform personal errands like purchasing gifts, travel arrangement, restaurant bookings, or even do their groceries (of course, virtually). If it is an easy task that you know you can do, have the initiative to offer some help.
As a virtual assistant, you need to be prepared and wear many hats to help your client. What’s important is that you know the basics and have the initiative to learn.
