When I partner with a new client or have a meeting with a potential client, I am always asked the same question. It doesn’t matter the type of work the particular client wants, they are always curious about my virtual assistant services. I thought I would answer that question here. What does a virtual assistant do? Well, depending on the particular VA, they do everything. For instance- I do not offer bookkeeping services, but I do manage calendars, create graphics, manage social media, and so much more. Here are 100 tasks a virtual assistant can do for you.

Remember: Before hiring a virtual assistant, assess the services you need and discuss those with the potential VA to make sure you are both on the same page.

There are so many different tasks a virtual assistant can handle, but none do all of them. If they do, they cannot do all of them well – unless you have a team working with you. When you find a virtual assistant you want to work with, discuss your expectations and their expectations. Discuss how you will communicate, which tasks are the most important, and hours they are available. You should also discuss if they are allowed to delegate tasks to members’ of their team.

I currently have slots open for virtual assistant clients and would be happy to discuss if we would be a great match. If not, I can help you find one that will be! Just email me at carionmedia at gmail dot com.
