The biggest challenge for small business owners is having to do the things that they're either not good at or don't have the time to do. Take a look at this list of activities our clients delegate to us:
Updating accounts (invoices, expenses and mileage)
Putting together and sending mailshots
Typing (from longhand and audio files)
Answering your phone & email enquiries
Arranging appointments (with both prospects and clients)
Organising hotels and travel plans
Internet research (competitors, clients and new products)
Updating your CMS (with new contacts from networking)
Building presentations ready for your sales meeting
Organising your email inbox
There are many, many more things you can delegate and it really is up to you to decide what you want us to do for you, just once or on a regular basis.
"So what are the benefits to you of working with a Virtual PA like us?"
Well, the simplest answer is "help only when you need it". There's no requirement to hire someone permanently (with all the legalities, taxes, desk and equipment requirements that go with it) and you can just assign tasks as and when.
And the more you work with us, the more we'll learn your personal style and even anticipate the way you want things done and how urgently.
We offer bespoke packages, tailored exactly to the needs of your business. So if you find yourself wanting to use a range of our services on a regular basis, but don’t want to spend a fortune, then the great news is, you can!
So why not call our Virtual PA team on 01604 529171 or click here to send us an email enquiry and let's see how we can help your business life run a whole lot smoother.
Until next time ...
THE OFFICE GENIE
I had a successful 20-year career as an office manager and personal assistant; however, my job was no longer focused on the customers and became all about the numbers. My customer-focused background began when I was 12 in my father's independent carpet showroom. I had a spell with Marks & Spencer before I moved into office-based jobs. I have worked as a training administrator, a PA and PA/office manager in a variety of industries from manufacturing to the IT education sector.
Meanwhile, my husband Ian, a successful Northampton based Master Decorator and owner of Rainbow Frost, was losing out on work due to missed phone calls. When he was busy, callers were getting his voicemail but weren't leaving messages. I knew how to fix that problem!
I quit my job and took on Ian as the first client of The Office Genie in November 2005. Word quickly spread with the second client coming on board just one week later. The majority of our clients since have come to us through word of mouth recommendations and networking referrals. Over the years, I have become well connected in Northampton and Milton Keynes.
Outside of work I enjoy swimming, roller skating, the theatre and my cats and dogs!
