Entrepreneurs that work with skilled virtual assistants and use a systematic approach are known to save enormous amount of time. Roughly speaking, a virtual assistant can save you up to 20 working hours every week, a time you can spend on other tasks, or spend it relaxing and enjoying life. There are always hours of work you can assign to your virtual assistant. And while there are many ways to use a virtual assistant, let’s look at some of the most popular.

Virtual Assistant as an Administrator

Administrative tasks are the most boring and hassle troubling tasks in the business world. They take enormous amount of time, they are repetitive, time consuming, energy consuming and they leave entrepreneurs with little to no creative spirit. Using a virtual assistant for administrative tasks has been a revelation in the past few years. With the rise of cloud storage options, it is getting easier and easier to find someone else to enter all the data into an Excel datasheet or do some other administrative tasks. All of us have at least 30 minutes of administrative tasks per day, which is 30 minutes you can spend elsewhere.

Virtual Assistant as a Secretary

Another popular approach of using virtual assistants is to use them as secretary. This involves giving access to your personal calendar and other personal data. The job of the virtual assistant is to make calls in your name, schedule meetings, business trips, book hotels, book flights, remind you of upcoming meetings and much more.


Last, but not least, a popular approach in the past years is to use a virtual assistant as a bookkeeper. Bookkeeping is an activity that can also be done over the cloud. Of course, the virtual assistant will need access to everything you do, all the products you are selling or services. But what the virtual assistant does is eliminate the time needed for calculations and preparing invoices. All you invoices and money will flow through your account without you needing to bother to send an invoice.
