10 reasons why every entrepreneur should hire and use virtual staff

Most people make mistakes when starting out, and this is doubly true for online entrepreneurs. Even if you put in loads of extra hours into your business every day, and are doing well, you still are missing out on the sheer power that hiring and working with virtual staff provides.

The saying “If you want something done right, you do it yourself” still hold true in the online business world, but the right virtual staff establishes clarity in your business ventures, so you can focus working on your business, instead of in your business — major difference!

With that being said, here are 10 good reasons why every entrepreneur should look into hiring virtual staff, and the immense benefits this brings:

  1. The immediate benefit? You can say goodbye to longwinded and stressful days which you probably force on yourself by working too hard on areas you could easily hire others for.
  2. Virtual staffing means you do not have to worry about where to put your staff in the office, and other such office needs like supplies and computers.
  3. You can hire people for one-time jobs or one-off projects leading to earlier completion.
  4. No geographical constraints means that your business can run nonstop thanks to separate time zones. This is particularly helpful for businesses that offer services round-the-clock, 24/7.
  5. You can have your virtual staff update your social accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn with new content regularly, ultimately growing your marketing and your business.
  6. Virtual assistants can take care of your mundane tasks, thereby leaving you more time to invest in improving the quality of your products and services.
  7. Outsourcing graphic design work to virtual staff will result in your promotional stuff looking amazing and professional, instead of something that is quickly thrown together.
  8. Working with a small army of virtual staff means you have to become more focused from an operational standpoint, have systems in place, and this mindset almost always allows for more growth.
  9. Hiring virtual assistants means you can outsource per projects, and spend only when required.
  10. And more importantly, virtual staff allow you to switch off more regularly, enjoy more time with friends and family, and sleep — all factors that have a say in you becoming a more fulfilled, happy and successful entrepreneur.

  • Great list Sarah. I couldn’t agree more with you. I have a “I want to figure this out on my own” kind of personality, but eventually (especially in online business) you need to accept help. If only to clear up more time for you to work on important stuff as you mentioned, having virtual help is vital nowadays.

  • I love all 10 points here Sarah! 🙂 I think #10 is the most obvious and yet brilliant one. I think all online entrepreneurs have a tendency to just throw themselves into the work and forget about their own life. When this happens, both personal and professional life will suffer. There needs to be a balance!
