If you want someone to keep you organized, look no further. A virtual assistant can be given the task of keeping you organized. Here are 5 ways a virtual assistant can help keep you organized
Keep Your CRM Software Updated
Most busy entrepreneurs use some kind of CRM to manage their customers. The problem is that when faced with a time crunch, most entrepreneurs will simply ignore the CRM. This causes it to get woefully out of date.
A virtual assistant can keep you organized by keeping your CRM updated. Give them the task of entering new contacts and managing existing ones. You will be able to use the CRM as always, but it will be more valuable as it is completely kept up to date by your virtual assistant.
Responding to Emails
We all get emails that anyone could respond to on our behalf. If you need someone to keep you organized by responding to simple emails, a virtual assistant is the best choice. If you use Exchange you can delegate access to your email account. If you don’t use Exchange, I suggest you use a password manager like LastPass to share your email credentials with your virtual assistant. Let them keep you organized by responding to your simple emails.
Whether it is dinner reservations or flight reservations, a virtual assistant can keep you organized by handling these tasks for you. The time you will save will more than pay the salary you give the virtual assistant. Again, use a software like LastPass to share your credit card information with the virtual assistant and they can make reservations on your behalf.
Basic Project Management
Project management can be a dicey area, but there are areas of it that are extremely repetitive and simple. One area of project management where a virtual assistant can help keep you organized is following up on task due dates. Your virtual assistant can keep track of what is due and when and then follow up with the employee to make sure the tasks are completed on time.
Managing Your Calendar
Many people use a virtual assistant to manage their calendar. There are many ways to approach this, but it is definitely an amazing way to utilize a virtual assistant. Give them instructions on how to manage your calendar and then let them loose on that calendar of yours.
A virtual assistant can insure you get meeting invites and that you have all the information you need in your calendar.
Virtual assistants are useful in so many ways. These organizational tips are just the tip of the iceberg. If you’d like to discuss hiring a virtual assistant, please get in touch with The Web Scientists today.
