How a VA can save you £20,000 a year!
That’s right, it’s not a typo or even an exaggeration!
You may think, at a first glance, the rates for Virtual Assistants seem high. However, have you considered the hidden costs of employing a member of staff? No? Well let me make it easy for you.
A typical cost comparison for a full-time employee versus a Virtual Assistant
A difference of £18,200 per year…..Who wouldn’t be chuffed with that!
Although the Virtual Assistant’s hourly rate is more than the employee’s, with the cost savings from overheads, benefits etc. which would be applied to the employee’s wage, you will be quids in!
And, because Virtual Assistants are usually more experienced, more efficient, and better connected than the employee, you’ll need to devote far less time to the project to get the same results; 1,000 hours less in fact.
Did you know that your employee’s 8-hour day can be crunched into 3-4 hours with a Virtual Assistant?
No more paying an employee to socialize, for quiet periods, to discuss episodes of Breaking Bad or a suspicious amount of trips to the bathroom. You only pay for the hours that a Virtual Assistant works.
If you choose the right Virtual Assistant, you will be working with an experienced, high-level administrator. They are likely to require little or no training and can be up and running with your business processes in a very short time. They can even provide you with suggestions to streamline your processes and make them more efficient. A more efficient business is often a more profitable business!
If that’s not enough to convince you, consider how paying a VA to do tasks that would otherwise consume your valuable time is probably the biggest cost saving to you! You can concentrate on your business, whilst the VA completes your administrative tasks. Winner!
(They may even be able to complete the tasks quicker than you can, saving you even more money!)
So, in a virtual nutshell, you should contract with a Virtual Assistant because it’s more cost-effective and Virtual Assistants go above and beyond to impact your own productivity. No task is too big or small for a Virtual Assistant to handle. Even if you only have 1 hour of work a month for a Virtual Assistant to do, a VA can (and will) do it.
