The tasks you NEED to be outsourcing today!

Do you find yourself staring at a long list of to-do’s not checked off your list at the end of the day? Deadlines looming, never ending emails and the feeling of being pulled in a hundred different directions does not have to be your day to day life. 

As a Virtual Assistant, my job (and passion) is to help YOU find more time to do the things you love, enjoy life more and help move your business along and grow.  

If you’re new to the concept of a Virtual Assistant (VA) and are questioning what you would even be able to pass off, let me share with you my top recommendations of tasks that should be off your plate ASAP! 


Social Media Management

If you run an online business, you need to have an online presence. Creating posts, content, scheduling and running of groups take a lot of time. It takes planning, creating and executing to get it all done. This is a task that is easily taken care of by a VA. 

Email Marketing

Email is a great method for communicating with your current and potential clients or customers (we wrote all about why your business should have an email list – check it out here). Email marketing is a great way to grow your audience and is the perfect task to pass off to a VA. 

Graphic Creation

A picture is worth a thousand words – which is why it’s important that any sort of marketing you do for your business (social media, ebooks, email, newsletters) is consistent with your brand and looks amazing. You want something that your clients will enjoy looking at. 

Email/Inbox Management

You’re not alone if you feel overwhelmed by your inbox. You can spend hours answering and filtering emails only to check back minutes later to have more waiting for your attention. A VA can organize, filter and prescreen your inbox so you only have to worry about the important messages that need your attention. 

Customer Service Management

Take the email inbox management a step further and have your VA take over the customer service area as well. A VA can reply to emails, field complaints, solve problems and give your clients the care and attention they deserve. There are some questions and problems that do not need your attention. Those are perfect for a VA to handle and your clients will love the special treatment.



If you have any sort of video or audio in your business, being able to have it transcribed is a huge bonus when it comes to marketing. This will allow you to use the information in any sort of print material: newsletters, emails, blogs and more. This is a great task for VA who has amazing typing skills. 


As you can see from the above list, a VA can be a huge asset to your business and the growth of your business. A VA can help to save you time and money as well as energy. We just touched on a few tasks, but there are so many more different tasks that you can take off your plate.
