Today we added a new tutorial on how to outsource a virtual assistant to help you do the work you need to do.

We have been using different virtual assistant services for a number of years now however in the last few years it has become a lot easier.

We use three different types of outsourcing from single jobs then projects and finally day to day processors.

To manage these three different projects we use a few different suppliers. For small single projects we programs like Fiverr or SEO Clerks.

These are sites where you can organize small jobs called Gigs you may want for your business.

Small Projects

Gigs range from “get a well-designed business card”, “a career consultant will create an eye-catching resume design”, “help with HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and JQuery”, to “I will be your personal assistant or virtual assistant” and “I will have Harold the Puppet make a birthday video.

We had this video into made for $5

Larger Projects

Places like Freelance and ODesk are more for larger projects like getting apps made or websites developed plus much more.

Day To Day Projects

A virtual Assistant is who we use for the day to day tasks that we can organize into doable chunks and measure their progress.

IT OUTSOURCING TOP TEN REASONS

  1. Cost Effective
    It is quite costly to employ in-house IT staff because you may need to give them additional company benefits as well as training to keep their skills updated. By outsourcing IT support, you only pay for services that you require.

    If everything is travelling well then you also don’t have to pay for downtime.

  2. Available Knowledge
    You have access to staff with great expertise – It may prove quite costly for your organization to hire staff with wide range of  expertise because of the amount of money that you may be required to pay them. If you outsource IT services, you can get the services of such experts and still manage to pay them because you will only be required to pay for the services that they offer you.
    .
  3. Up To Date Technology
    It keeps your business in touch with the latest technology – if you build a relationship with a good provider of IT support services, you will be able to know if there is a new product, an upgrade or a tool that might be useful to your business.

    A good provider of IT support services is likely to monitor the market and assess innovations to try and establish what works best for their customers. This helps you stay ahead of your competitors.
    .

  4. Additional Services
    A good provider of IT services is likely to offer you additional services. Such a provider is likely to make recommendations that could greatly improve your systems thus helping you save money.

  5. Focus On Your Business
    Once you outsource IT services, you do not have to worry about maintaining your systems or handling any IT related problems that your business may encounter. This is left to the provider of IT services and allows you to focus on other core aspects of your business.
    .
  6. Proactivity
    IT Outsourcing gives you access to constant care. Instead of having to fix problems when they occur, IT support providers can proactively monitor your systems, identify problems and go on to fix them even before you notice thus eliminating downtime.
    .
  7. Eliminates Skills Crisis During Recruitment
    If you choose the right IT support provider, you are likely to have a highly trained team at your disposal instead of having to worry about recruiting people with the right IT skills.
    .
  8. Downtime Reduction
    If you outsource IT services from a good provider, your systems will be monitored 24/7. This enables threats to be detected in good time and any IT problems to be solved before things become worse.
    .
  9. Efficiency Improvement
    Since outsourcing IT support eliminates downtime, the efficiency of your business is improved significantly as customers will not miss out on services or products that they require.
    .
  10. Coverage
    When a technician is on vacation or out sick, IT support will provide coverage for all support requests. This will allow for 100% support availability.
