We are able to create, develop and manage your social media on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, paying attention to replies and reaching out to and interacting with your customers.
There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes in preparing for Board meetings – drafting the agenda, collating information for the reports, preparing the meeting packs, distribution of papers, drafting of minutes and chasing up actions. These are all things which a VA can take care of and we can even attend the meeting and take the minutes for you if required. If you are chairing or attending a meeting and taking the minutes, you won’t be fully engaged in the conversation.
We love templates. If there is something that you often do more than once, it’s a waste of your valuable time if you don’t have a template for it. Whether it’s schedules for newsletters, letters, questionnaires, board meeting agendas, spreadsheets or anything else, we can take the work you have already done and get templates set up for future use.
It is not only time consuming but also can be a rather unpleasant conversation to have with your clients, when they are behind on their payments. We can help chase the payments, send reminders, resend invoices and help you ensure you keep your cash flow in a healthy place, so you can be assured that there is enough money in the bank to pay yourself and your staff a wage.
Recruitment isn’t just about a job description, there are many things that need to be done before you’re welcoming your new member of the team through the door. We can help by advertising the role on job sites, reviewing applications, shortlisting, conducting screening interviews, arranging interviews and providing feedback to candidates. How much time would this save you? We can also then send out a job offer letter, make sure they have signed and returned their contract, prepare staff handbooks and even liaise with your IT team to make sure they have everything they need ready for their first day.
Research can be very time consuming so can be the ideal thing to delegate to a Virtual Assistant. We’ll research online and make the phone calls and then present our findings back to you in an easily digestible way so you can use the information right away. What research could you delegate today?
When you have spent ages writing your next newsletter or blog or marketing brochure it can be really hard to spot those little errors that can make all the difference in making the right first impression. Using a VA with proofreading skills can give you the assurance that your brand is making the right first impression and that it reflects the amazing and professional business that you run.
Do you feel like you are going around in circles trying to write copy for your website, your blog, your marketing literature? Sometimes it can really help to have a second pair of eyes. We can help re-write or re-word your existing materials to give them a fresh new feel, or given a few pointers, draft something for you to approve – let us help you get started, or help you get that project finished!
Event planning is a great thing to be involved in, but it can be very time consuming. We’ve helped plan team meetings, board meetings, conferences, award ceremonies, garden parties, and lots of other events. We can help you by issuing invitations, researching and booking venues, liaising with and answering questions from your guests, arranging speakers, AV, lighting, gifts, flowers and much more besides. We will have regular update calls with you to keep you in the loop and report back when it’s all arranged. We could also come and help on the day – manning the registration desk and welcoming guests if you need us to.
Are you a creative person? Not everyone is, and that’s OK – we all have our strengths. If you just can’t get what’s in your head onto paper, you are not alone. That’s why we have a fantastic designer on our team who can help with flyers, posters, social media images, booklets and practically anything else visual. We can make your ideas come to life. Get in touch if there is anything we can help with.
Mailshots and Letters
Whilst so much is now done online, emails just don’t have the same effect when they land in your inbox as a letter. With the resurgence of traditional mailings, we can help you to prepare and send thank you letters or cards, invitations to an event or Christmas cards and gifts. We can also prepare templates for your letters and create a mail-merge with your chosen recipients.
Online System Management
Are you ready to move on-line? If you are looking to move from a manual filing system to cloud-based storage, we can help set up and organise this for you. Perhaps you already got online storage but it’s not working for you – we can help re-arrange your folders and files in a more efficient way so you can find what you need, first time every time.
Spreadsheet & Form Creation
We all love a spreadsheet, don’t we? We can help pull together your data in an easy to use way or create a form to gather information for you. Whether it’s event feedback, client testimonials or invitations to a dinner there are lots of ways that we can help you be more effective through creation of spreadsheets and forms.
Whether it’s co-ordinating an office move or simply having someone to make sure you write and send email newsletters every month, we can help with your project management. From drafting the schedule, co-ordinating the parties involved and ensuring tasks are delivered on time through to delivery and evaluation, we can support you with projects large and small.
