6 Tasks To Start Outsourcing Today
I know. I’ve been there too. Prioritizing deadlines and pushing back not-so-important things, the never-ending emails, phone calls, meetings, and the other hundred different directions you’re pulled. Here’s what I’ve learned as an entrepreneur (and as a mom, wife, household owner, etc.): sometimes, it’s impossible to do it all on your own. So sometimes, I begrudgingly need to ask for help.
Sidenote: We started as a husband and wife partnership, and now we have a team of 6 people! Insert, asking for help.
Social Media Management
You need to have an online presence if you run an online business. But the most important part of showing up online is showing up consistently. It means creating quality content regularly and that takes time (maybe time you don’t have). This is a task that can easily be outsourced. At Kim&Co Online, you always have the final say before anything goes live on your social media. You can review, edit, and approve all content and graphics before anything is put out. So while it may seem scary to outsource your social media, with us, you remain in control.
Email is an excellent method for communicating with current and potential clients or customers, and it’s a great way to take your audience off a third-party platform (like Facebook, Instagram, etc.) and have a way to contact them if anything happens to your account on social media. Email marketing also allows you to have the freedom to share whatever you want without the risk of losing your account, offer promotions or sales to those who support you the most, and share tips and tricks without letting the whole world know. This is another easy task to outsource. But, at Kim&Co Online, you always have the final say. We love working with you and making your life a little easier!
A picture is worth a thousand words, so it’s important that any 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. Once we know your brand, we can take the time to make sure that everything looks cohesive. If you don’t have a brand yet, we can help with that too. We want your business to represent you!
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 virtual assistant can organize, filter and prescreen your inbox, so you only have to worry about the important messages that need your attention. We can also take the time to unsubscribe from any unnecessary junk mail coming through. We’ll work hard to get you to the inbox of your dreams!

Customer Service Management
Take the email inbox management a step further and have a 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 issues 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 video or audio in your business, having it transcribed is a huge bonus for marketing. It allows you to use the information in any print material: newsletters, emails, blogs and more. Transcription is another great task for VA that has impressive typing skills.
As you can see from the above list, a virtual assistant can be a huge asset to your business and the growth of your business. A VA can help save you time, money, and energy so that you can focus your attention where it needs to be. Looking for help with something that’s not listed? This is just a short list of tasks that you can outsource, but there are plenty more tasks that Kim&Co can help with.
