Have more work and less people? Hire a Virtual Assistant
With a down economy, many companies are cutting back but the workloads remain. One option to handle the workload is to outsource and hire a virtual assistant. Marketing & PR functions often get cut, but it is important to continue marketing your company, even on a scaled back level.
The internet is bridging gaps in the corporate sector like never before. I truly believe that workers will be able to contribute to companies worldwide without the need to provide for relocation coverage.
Great workers and employers are hard to find, so when the internet can help link the two and make a match, it’s a great thing.
Small businesses that cannot yet staff a marketing department need help with their marketing objectives. A virtual marketing assistant can help you ramp up with projects more quickly.
The owner typically does the marketing and usually does not have time to stay on task and on deadline. So marketing usually suffers by being overlooked, or deadlines are missed, which in turn affects new customer acquisition and sales.
Who can benefit? Basically all companies. Large corporations that have had downsizing. Mid-sized companies that have a marketing team but cannot hire new employees at this time. Small businesses and start-ups with no marketing employees. VMAs can help with strategic project marketing, presentations, web content, collateral, press releases, advertising, trade shows, lead generation, public relations and more.
Virtual marketing can be a great short-term solution for your business – you have no overhead and no benefits to pay, just an hourly rate. In turn, you gain an experienced marketer who can quickly learn your business from the expert, you, and then plan a plan and attack.
