How to use Virtual Assistants

It's now easier than ever for small businesses to outsource many of the functions and tasks that are not necessarily your core competency. From back-office functions like bookkeeping, to creating written content for your online sites, "hiring" a virtual assistant may be your best option. 

The internet and other technologies make it easy to leverage the specialties of others, without having to actually hire an employee. By "hiring" a Virtual Assistant - meaning that you engage them for a specific project or task at a predetermined rate and for a specific period of time - you accelerate the growth of your business without the full burden of having to increase your payroll expenses.
