The most common complaint from business owners that we hear is that they don’t reach their financial goals. They’re so busy working IN their business, they don’t have time to work ON it. Don’t let another year go by where you and your business fall short of where you want to be. A VaVa Virtual Assistant can help you with a myriad of tasks that are tedious, time consuming, and sometimes, just plain boring. We can help you do the research you need to help your business compete and thrive in your market so you don’t have to.
As a business owner or manager, you rely on reports to help you stay on top of your market, trends, product popularity and efficiency, and much more. Our VAs are extremely experienced in business growth principles and understand that you need sharp, detailed, comparative data and reports to know where your business is succeeding and where it may need some improvement. Let us work harder so you can work smarter. Here are four ways our VAs can gather market research and insight to help your business grow and thrive.
A VA can help you collect statistics and examine databases, reports, financial records, newsletters, and more so you can gain insight on your target market and services. Data collection and analysis can help you make better decisions for your business, but your VA saves you the time of having to do all of this yourself. They can even draft a report for your records or make a power point out of the information they find so you can easily share it with your team at your next meeting.
Surveys and Interviews
Surveys are an inexpensive and quick way to gather information. Your VA can write questions and create online surveys that you can send to your customers, clients, or staff. They can conduct surveys by mail or telephone, reaching out to specific demographics. Interviews are a great way to get a little more in depth with your feedback from one or more people, perhaps your most profitable customer or your best salesman. Once all the surveys or interviews have been completed, your VA can compile all the data in a simple report for your records.
Website Traffic data
A virtual assistant can also help you track traffic data from your website to spot trends in page views and keyword use. They can help you find resources that allow you to keep an eye on what the competition is doing and give you an analysis of who is visiting your site. This way, you may learn of consumer demographics that you didn’t know about or haven’t focused on yet.
Gathering information for a case study requires a customer being observed over a longer period of time, but this gives you information about your product or business that you can’t get otherwise. A VA can help you perform this research by surveying, interviewing, and observing a volunteer using the product. A case study should give you a total and complete assessment of the product front to back.
Virtual assistants can conduct market research, plot competition, gather statistics, mark goals, market share, and more. They’ll compile the information in a presentation or report that’s ready for you to share with potential investors. Virtual assistants understand how to effectively and quickly perform online research, use the right keywords, and verify that the extracted information is authentic, relevant, and accurate. They do the important, although sometimes monotonous, tasks so you can save time and money, and focus more energy on your big picture goals.
