How to Have More Time For Your Business By Hiring A Virtual Assistant

Do you ever wish you had more time for your business? Especially the creative aspects? But your mind is whirring with all the admin that you need to do?

  • That prospective client needs to be emailed back.
  • The couple whose wedding you’re shooting next month are waiting for an answer to that important question.
  • That client's website needs to be updated and new content added.
  • Social media posts need to be formatted and scheduled.
  • Invoices need raising and payments chasing.

I could go on. Your life is a constant mix of emails that need to be answered, blog posts that need to be researched and written, tweets to schedule, appointments to make etc., never mind finding time to do the actual photography.

By hiring a Virtual Assistant you can finally let go of all the admin noise and constant to-do lists in your head, and concentrate on what you love to do – whether that's photography, web/graphic design or something else entirely.

Some of the tasks that you could delegate to your Virtual Assistant include –

Email Management

The faster emails are responded to the more likely the client is to book your services. Following guidelines set by you, your VA will be able to filter emails for greater efficiency, respond to emails on your behalf and highlight any emails that need to be responded to by you.

Calendar Management, Scheduling and Deadlines

Working alongside you, your VA can schedule meetings/phone calls with clients, keeping your calendar updated and correct. Your VA can keep you on task, reminding you of looming deadlines and important dates.

Client Relationships

Virtual Assistants are able to build a great relationship with clients ensuring that they are kept in touch with. Other services they could do include writing and sending holiday cards, anniversary cards, thank you notes or booking gifts and information packets.

Social Media Management

Your VA can take over your social media management, scheduling your posts on whichever platforms you use. They can even learn your social media “voice” helping your brand become more consistent and meaningful with the content provided.

Blog Management

Your VA is able to research, write, format, post and promote your blog posts. Think of how much time you could save by just letting go of one or two of these things.

Website Management

Your VA will also be able to look after your website, from small updates to complete overhauls. They will be able to keep your portfolio updated on your own website as well as any other websites you may have a presence on.

These are just a few of the ways in which a Virtual Assistant could give you back time to spend on your photography.
