Businesses are branding their name over the internet. They are building credibility by showcasing their services and being seen as an expert in their chosen field. They are using media such as blogging, ezines, social media, article writing, internet radio advertising, and self published books. 

As businesses expand their connections to a global market they are looking for ways that they can keep in touch with current and potential clients. Email correspondence and social media has become the chosen medium. Gone are tedious long distance charges, time zone restrictions and costly travel.

By working with a Virtual Assistant, a small business or a creative entrepreneur can now take advantage of the knowledge and experience of a marketing expert at a fraction of the cost; thereby giving them an edge over their competition.

Many Virtual Assistants have technical know how and marketing knowledge to promote your business, create a buzz, gain global exposure and market your business online using many of the principals used in viral marketing.

No need to buy office supplies or hire a full time employee.

    I have a few friends who use and love their virtual assistants. I like responding directly to my readers because of the nature of my blog.

    Too often entrepreneurs want to do it all themselves. It is their nature to want to be in control of everything concerning their business. Makes a lot of sense.

    On the other hand, entrepreneurs can also become the bottleneck to business growth when they want to have too much control. The goal is to have people who love to do what is considered work for you. By finding the right people to support you, and your business, you will be setting the stage for growth.

    Wearing many hats is the Achilles heel of so many small business owners. When first starting out, a small business owner may have time to focus on all aspects of their business, but as the business grows; it is time to call in help. I personally recommend to my clients that they devise systems when business is slow so that delegation can be done and closely monitored when the business starts to grow.

    I have used a VA to help me with my business. It is so much cheaper than having a full time employee. I recommend using someone with good reviews or local so you can meet ahead of time and see how you feel working with them.
