The Right Virtual Assistant (VA) Can Be Your Secret Weapon

TWC recently had the privilege of hosting an event session about the value of Virtual Assistants (VAs), led by the brilliant Kathy Jones.

Her full session (which you can grab right here) covered a vast range of commonly asked questions about how to effectively and efficiently use VAs to double, triple, or even quadruple your business output without completely capsizing due to increased overhead costs.

In this article, I want to share just a few of my key takeaways and insights from her session on leveraging VAs.

Who is Kathy Jones and Why is She Amazing?

Kathy is a genius. With an impressive background and unmatched expertise with VAs, Kathy has established herself as a VA extraordinaire.

She answered all our questions and guided us through the intricacies of working with VAs.

By the end of her session we were thoroughly educated on all things VA.

Hiring and Setting Expectations For Your VA Team

Hiring VAs from the Philippines can be highly advantageous due to their skill set and affordability.

One of the crucial aspects of beginning a working relationship with your VA is the importance of the interview process.

Being aware of cultural fit and clearly defining expectations for both parties lays a solid foundation for a successful working relationship.

It’s also important to communicate your business’s strategies for onboarding, job responsibilities, PTO policies and working hours.

Creating Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) before hiring any VA (and any team member for that matter) is important, as they help to ensure seamless operations.

Investing in Your VA Team for Growth

Investing back into our teams is the most valuable strategy for fostering growth.

This investment can build loyalty, trust, and a stronger relationship among the team.

It also helps combat the potential for loneliness among a remote team.

Kathy shared how she uses Zoom to set up a virtual office space and provides opportunities for team-building events with her VAs.

Ensuring Data Security and Clear Communication

Data security emerged as a key concern when working with VAs.

Kathy stressed the importance of confidentiality and shared tips for safeguarding sensitive information, like proper permissions and password organization.

Effective communication was also highlighted as a cornerstone of successful collaboration, encompassing cultural differences, performance metrics, and the use of translation tools when necessary.

Become a Master with VAs

By embracing the power of VAs, even on a limited budget, business owners can unlock new levels of productivity and efficiency previously unavailable.

If you’re ready to get serious about VAs, check out Kathy’s full session which we’ve just made available – “Scaling With Virtual Assistants.”

It will help you understand where to find a great VA, how to set up the interview process, how to set clear expectations, manage workload, and invest in their growth.

That’s all for now!
