Outsourcing: yes or no?
The cost of hiring a permanent member of staff to deal with administrative dutiies is often far more than most small businesses can afford.
A Virtual Assistant
It is likely that you will almost end up paying their salary twice. Not only will you have to deal with payroll taxes, insurance and benefits but you will also for their lunch breaks, hospital appointments, sick days and holidays. This all quickly adds up and outsourcing starts to look like a more sensible proposition.
It is a popular belief among many small businesses that outsourcing is a luxury they cannot afford. But in reality, outsourcing can save so much of your own valuable time that it actually almost pays for itself and will obviously be cheaper than hiring someone on a full-time basis.
So if you are trying to decide whether to outsource or not, you must also consider how much your time is actually worth to you. If you find that doing administrative tasks is costing time you should be using to make sales or doing something productive, then you should definitely consider outsourcing to a virtual assistant.
