It has to be one of the hardest things for a business owner, relinquishing tasks that they believe they can do better themselves. None of us however are Octopus’s or have the ability to split ourselves in half.
With the recent announcement that we are officially out of recession, are Companies going to throw money into recruitment and re-hire all the staff they had to make redundant? In a word….No!
Over the past few years, we’ve seen an increase in Consultancy Services, people who were made redundant and now offering their expertise on a ‘virtual’ basis, from Finance Directors to Secretaries and many more. Executive VPA are currently part of a ‘virtual team’ helping a UK Consultant grow and expand an International Company into Europe. The overheads involved in setting up an office would make this almost impossible for an Independent Consultant.
All good managers know how important it is to get the best out of their staff, by out-sourcing tasks to experts in their field, you can benefit from;
• Reduction if not eradication of overheads
• Work undertaken to a timeline you dictate
• Expert help and advice only as and when needed
• Minimal need for training or software/hardware updates
Times are changing and so is the way we grow and market our businesses. The rise of Social Media in marketing is an ideal example of this, if you’re not seen to be active on Social Media, people wonder why? As the business of ‘virtual working’ grows, competitors will soon start to wonder why advantage isn’t being taken.
Don’t become a “business dinosaur” move with the times and use every resource you can.
