1. Reduced Labor Costs

There are a lot of costs associated with hiring a full-time employee, such as


  • Salary

  • Taxes

  • Sick Days

  • Vacation Time

  • Worker’s Compensation

  • Medical & Dental Benefits

  • 401K Contributions

Virtual Assistants work as independent contractors. This means they handle

all of their own expenses, including taxes and insurance.

2. Increased Productivity

Virtual Assistants work differently than your in-office staff. Without the distractions of an office environment, they’re able to focus and dedicate their time to getting tasks done. They are also only paid for the time they actually spend working on your projects and not for coffee breaks and personal Internet surfing. 

Because VA's are self-employed, their number one goal is client satisfaction. If they start slacking off and missing deadlines, it is unlikely the company will hire them for future work. For this reason, Virtual Assistants are a highly motivated bunch!

3. Increased Flexibility

With a Virtual Assistant, you are not tied to a 9-5 workday. They work around your schedule and are there when you need them.

If you are in different time zones, that can work to your advantage, too. Rather than assigning eight-hour shifts, you can develop a schedule that maximizes output while keeping costs in check.

4. Reduced Risk in scaling Operations

Are you at a point with your business where you are not entirely sure what’s going to happen next? The numbers are pointing towards growth, but you do not know when or how quickly that will happen? This is another situation where a Virtual Assistant could be the perfect solution.

Rather than taking on new employees, hiring a VA would help you manage your work volume without breaking your budget. If business picks up and you need more help, simply hire another Assistant to see you through the transition.

5. Frees Up Time For Strategic Thinking


As Virtual Assistants can perform your non-core activities, you have more time to focus on growing your business. Rather than wasting time and resources in doing day-to-day operations, you can invest it in thinking strategically about goals that guide your company to better performance and long-term success.


Non-core activities could be

  • Sending E-mails and Newsletters

  • Handling Customer Queries

  • Internet Research

  • Scheduling Meetings

  • Travel & Event Planning

  • Data Entry
