The Usefulness of Using an Outsourced Team of Virtual Assistants

Updated: Oct 5, 2023

Virtual assistants (VAs) are like the unsung heroes of the business world. They take on a wide range of tasks, from administrative and customer service to marketing and social media, freeing up business owners to focus on the core aspects of their business.

However, managing a team of VAs can be time-consuming and challenging. That's where outsourcing your VA business comes in.

An outsourced Virtual Assistance team helps you with administrative work, secretarial work and other tasks like social media and marketing.

Outsourcing your VA business allows you to tap into a global pool of highly skilled and experienced VAs, without the hassle of recruitment, training, and management. This can free up your time and resources, so you can focus on growing your business.

Key benefits of outsourcing your Virtual Assistance needs:

Reduce your cost: As a company outsourcing your Virtual Assistance needs, you should expect a noticeable decrease in your operational costs while being able to have more time to focus on the core of your business.

Improve your team's efficiency: An outsourcing company excels at managing groups of teams effectively. Take us as an example: At Everett Sky, we make sure all of our team members are non-remote and internally managed.

Improve overall quality: Because of their experience, an outsourcing company typically provides the necessary expertise in very niche markets and specific requests by the client, meaning that the quality of the work is quite noticeable when compared to hiring and managing internally.

Scale effortlessly: An outsourcing provider or BPO helps your company scale much faster than ordinarily due to the talent pool already available for hire. For you as a business, this means spending less time on hiring, screening and interviewing candidates.

Flexibility: Last but not least, a business process outsourcing company (BPO) provides the ultimate flexibility to your team. This is due to the large candidate pool that serves the BPO and thus also serves your company in very specific requests and the utmost flexibility.

Whether you're a small business owner or a large enterprise, outsourcing your VA business can help you achieve your goals more quickly and efficiently.

If you're considering outsourcing your VA business, here are a few tips to help you get started:

Choosing the right company: For a BPO, reputation is everything, but more important is being able to show your reputation in proper examples. For instance, our internal data at Everett Sky points to an average reduced cost of 58% for clients that use our services.

Communicate your needs: The more clarity you provide to a business process outsourcing company the more efficient their team is in providing you with exactly what you need.

Set your expectations: By communicating your expectations, especially in terms of KPIs and overall goals, you set the precedent for success that will eventually affect your long-term business.

Provide constructive feedback: A proper outsourcing company will always ask for your feedback in order to better improve their services. This is a win-win situation for both the BPO and your company as a client.

We believe that by following these tips, you can ensure that your VA outsourcing experience is a positive one. For more information about our services at Everett Sky, feel free to use any of the contact forms here.
