As technology has developed, the virtual assistant industry has boomed, and it looks set to continue growing in popularity over the coming years.
If you have had a successful career but now dream of working flexible hours from home, then running your own virtual PA franchise could be the exciting new challenge you’re looking for.
What is a virtual assistant?
A virtual assistant is a skilled personal assistant that completes tasks for a portfolio of clients remotely from home.
Why has demand for virtual assistants grown?
A virtual assistant provides a business or entrepreneur with a flexible and cost-effective service that makes business sense.
Hiring one or more people full-time is a big financial commitment, just some of the associated expenses include wages, holiday and sick pay, training, equipment, and increased overheads.
On the other hand, the services of a virtual PA can be used flexibly, either for a set number of hours each week or month, or on an ad-hoc basis as and when needed for one straightforward fee. Using a virtual assistant is a no-brainer, especially if you’re a start-up or small business with a modest budget.
Over recent years the UK has seen a year-on-year growth in start-up businesses, and the virtual assistant industry helps these entrepreneurs to gain affordable help and support with running their new ventures.
Advances in technology have made it easier than ever for personal assistants to work remotely as virtual assistants. In today’s constantly connected world there is no need for a personal assistant to work in the office. The internet, video calls, the cloud, mobile phones and laptops make it possible for virtual PAs to do almost everything an in-house assistant can.
