Business SupportGet more done with the support of a virtual assistant.
Every growing business deserves support
Every business has many operational tasks that can be seen as a chore but need to be tackled for the business to thrive. There are all sorts of time consuming tasks that Directors should not do themselves, these include entering new contact details into a shared contact database (or CRM system), sending customer support emails, preparing meeting minutes, typing up audio or handwritten notes, researching and planning travel arrangement, liaising with people to schedule meetings.
Successful business owners consider carefully how they spend their time, diligently delegating tasks that do not make the best use of their skills. If you find yourself regularly completing a time consuming task that isn’t highly skilled, it’s time to outsource it.
Case Study – Sales Meetings
A small business owner often travels abroad for sales meetings and secure new contracts for the company. He developed a simple sales meeting template to feedback the outcome of these meetings to his team, allowing them to take action and prepare more detailed quotes as needed. Typing up the notes was taking too much time, but it was too important to the business not to do. He started taking photos of his notes using the Evernote ipad app and sharing them with OfficeHounds. His Virtual Assistant was able to prepare the document for him. All he had to do was read through it and share it with his time. His Virtual Assistant also provides support by reminding him of all outstanding actions from old reports. Before working with OfficeHounds, due to all of the travelling, he found it difficult to keep track of which actions had been completed by his team and which ones he needed to finish. Now, with a simple system in place, it is much easier for him to make sure that his team are taking important actions to convert those leads.
