Hire Fractional Help To Accomplish The Tasks You Hate
Maybe you wake up at night wallpapering your bedroom with sticky notes scribbled with transaction details. Or maybe you find yourself going to bed so late it’s crossed your mind to just stay up.
Yes, you’re an expert at certain tasks and it’s tough to hand them off to someone else with any confidence they’ll do the job as well as you, but you’re burning the candle at both ends. It’s only a matter of time before you burn out and you’re left with a pile of ashes and sticky notes for décor.
A VA will make sure everything reconciles and that your walls aren’t fluorescent yellow anymore.
And let’s be honest with ourselves: How many of those sticky notes are tasks that you completely dread doing? A VA can help with that, too.
How Can Fractional Staffing Help Your Business?
Do you find yourself scrambling to make it to meetings on time? Or feeling like you’re always ‘winging it’ when you do show up?
If this is a recurrence, you probably shouldn’t be the only one in charge of your schedule. Fortunately, all of our contractors can help you manage your time better.
Here are some of the specifics for each role.
A Virtual Assistant can help streamline your day by not only taking on the extra, mundane tasks but by vetting your calendar. Your VA can be the first person people go to in order to schedule time with you.
This will put an intermediary in place and enable you to set boundaries with ease.
Your Bookkeeper can take over all aspects of the financial side of your business.
*And we all let out a collective sigh of relief.*
Most of our bookkeeping clients are seriously extraordinary entrepreneurs who have seriously extraordinary demands on their time.
But with a BELAY Bookkeeper, you can say ‘goodbye’ to pulling all-nighters to process payroll and ‘so long’ to boxes of receipts that look more like ticker tape than important financial statements.
A website seems to consistently need edits, updates and additions. This is something that can be easy enough to do but often takes up time.
A Website Specialist can handle the heavy lifting for you so you and your business can shine.
Social Media Managers
Social media marketing is one of the best tools to use for your business, but when that becomes too much to handle, it starts to feel overwhelming – and you may contemplate throwing your computer out the window.
Let a BELAY Social Media Manager manage your unique social media needs – which can be varied, extensive and exhaustive – and build a strong online presence to get you back to what you love most: running and growing your business.
Research and Reporting
This is one of the categories where our Virtual Assistants truly shine. Researching and reporting can feel like a major time suck — even when you know how important the final product is.
When you hand these tasks over to your VA, you have the confidence of knowing they will get taken care of and you won’t have to worry about them anymore.
We’ve had VAs that have planned entire vacations for our clients, business trips, major events for our clients’ companies, and weekly data to gain clientele and fuel growth.
If your inbox is splitting at the seams like your mailbox after a two-week vacation, it’s probably time to get help.
When was the last time you could see free space in your email inbox?
Just thinking about all the newsletters, junk mail, and social media notifications is overwhelming and cause us all to get the cold sweats. A VA can easily and quickly sort all of it out for you and keep it organized.
Are you brimming with ideas for new ventures you’re excited to try, but you never seem to get to them? It’s probably because your focus is being pulled in too many directions.
All of those tasks you put off until tomorrow only to find they’ve been waiting for your attention for six weeks could be handled by a VA. Then you could get to that idea you had for those self-ironing pants.
Rather than spending hours of your week following up on vendors, contractors, and unpaid invoices, have your Virtual Assistant do that for you.
Your assistant can keep your projects moving toward deadlines, and do all the time-consuming follow-ups with everyone involved so you can focus on your portion of the project.
They can also solicit proposals, send out post-project surveys, manage project-related expenses, and any other tasks that need to be done to successfully finish whatever projects you have in the works – while you focus on brainstorming the next one.
