Boost Your Business: Hire a Virtual Assistant on a Budget

by | Apr 9, 2024

As a growing small business, funds for staffing are often tight, and hiring a full-time employee may not be immediately possible. Growing pains can look like pushing aside critical, income-generating activities and spending your entire day working on mundane, daily tasks; or spending the day filling staffing gaps while taking your focus away from building your company.

With any growing company, owners have to wear many hats. At VaVa, we know that “in-between” zone of needing the support but not being able to afford it all too well! This is where the beauty of a fractional virtual assistant (VA) comes in. If you’re in that ”in-between” zone, it might be time to hire a virtual assistant. 

Here are the ways a VA can support  that middle ground when you’re growing and ready for support but have a limited budget: 

  • Growing Together: You can start as small as you want. A fractional VA can meet your needs for both time and budget. As your needs and finances grow, your VA can grow with you to incrementally take on more tasks. 
  • Adjusting Easily: We all know that business ebbs and flows. When it’s flowing, you can build on the support you have. But, as a small business, it is crucial to be able to adjust your expenses quickly when necessary. A VA’s flexibility can offer you support when you need it, and the ability to quickly scale back when you don’t. 
  • Filling Many Gaps: You can build an entire back-office team of fractional support with a smaller budget than you’d pay for one full-time employee with benefits. You can have a fractional assistant, a fractional social media manager, and a fractional bookkeeper without bringing on three employees with overhead. It’s the perfect approach for a growing small business. 
  • Reducing Overhead: With fractional, virtual support, you save yourself and your company a lot of money. In addition to filling many gaps at a lesser cost, you also skip the burden of payroll tax, benefits, and office space expenses. You get the support your company needs while keeping your bottom line healthy. 
  • Skipping the Recruitment Process: Proactively recruiting the right VA is a time-intensive process that includes writing and posting an ad, weeding through applications, interviewing, reference checks, and more. You can find a great VA this way, but if you’re looking to save time and still find a quality candidate, VaVa Virtual makes the process simple and provides pre-vetted, experienced VAs. 

Just like any business expense, it’s important to be cost-efficient. Fractional service providers make a huge difference with increased productivity and filling skill gaps, all while keeping your specific budget in mind. It is a revolutionary tool for any business that is expanding and the opportunities are limitless.
