Small business owners can easily get bogged down by the stress of administration. You know…the tasks that are important to maintaining your business but are non-revenue producing activities, such as:
- Editing and proofreading
- Targeted email marketing
- Subscriber management
- Database management
- Customer appreciation
- Taking your concepts and putting it to paper
There are so many more activities in your business that require desk-time and we don’t always have the time or capacity to do them. 68% of a small business owner’s time is spent on these types of tasks, where 32% of the time is spent building the business and achieving the goals. We end up procrastinating, putting these tasks in an “I’ll do it later” pile…but later never comes, even when we are working 60+ hours a week. Sound familiar?
“But I can do it and I know it will be done right.” Well, we all think this way. Delegation seems hard. Letting go of pieces of your business can make a person feel like they are losing control over certain aspects of their business. Right?!
Delegation doesn’t have to be hard though, it can be simple. Hiring the right Virtual Assistant that works at the level that you want is essential. Do you want them to follow a written procedure? Do you want them to take over the task completely by developing a process for doing it? Or, is it somewhere in between? Virtual Experts, such as those at Simple Secretary, are equipped to work at all levels of your delegation needs.
