Thinking of Hiring a Virtual Assistant?
Hire an Amazon Virtual Assistant from VA FLIX
Working with Amazon or other eCommerce platforms can be liberating. However, if you become too immersed in the details, it can be a line of work that feels like massive/excessive amounts of data entry, customer service, and logistics. That is why an Amazon virtual assistant or an eCommerce virtual assistant can come in and immediately help you reorganize your life so that you can be more productive.
What an Amazon Virtual Assistant or an eCommerce Virtual Assistant Can Do for You
If you run a business where the majority of your transactions take place on Amazon, eBay, or any other eCommerce platform, you’re already familiar with all of this. The issue is not among familiarity. The issue is that some aspects of Amazon’s services simply hinder your ability to be more productive. That is NOT what we want. What is the simplest solution? Invest in a virtual assistant! A virtual assistant is someone who works from home and performs all of the functions of a full-time or part-time employee for your company. By incorporating an assistant into your business’s pipeline, you will relieve much of the pressure on yourself and free up your time to focus on the big picture.
Here are some of the important key areas in which an eCommerce virtual assistant can help:
- Handling suppliers.
Making sure that the suppliers have everything in one go is one of the most frustrating aspects of anyone who sells on Amazon or eBay. And when there are a few issues on this end, it can consume a significant amount of your time and energy. Hiring a virtual assistant from VA FLIX will allow you to contact suppliers without taking up too much of your time.
- Handling customers.
Amazon’s customer service is extremely strange. Having a large number of customers indicates that your business is thriving or booming, which is fantastic. But having a lot of customers also means you have a lot of problems to deal with, such as bad feedback, impatient clients saying they’ve been waiting for an update, customer complaints about their product, and so on, which isn’t always fun. You can delegate customer-facing tasks and communication to your virtual assistant so that you can spend your time as you see fit.
- Managing Listings.
Your Amazon or eBay listing is your own lifeblood for a reason – it is that vital to your business. A Virtual Assistant can assist you in monitoring and tracking your product listings, and the Virtual Assistant will notify you when something needs to be fixed. If you make searching through your own listings and checking to see how you compare to the competition a regular part of your day, you can outsource that to a VA FLIX virtual assistant without ignoring these listings.
When you create something on your store, regardless of platform, or specifically on Amazon or eBay, you must always ensure that the listing is not only clear and cohesive but also meets Amazon’s standards. An experienced eCommerce assistant can assist you in double-checking or even triple-checking everything you’ve done, or they can take over your optimization.
- Social Media Marketing.
From responding to customers to creating new posts, managing your social media visibility can be a full-time job in and of itself. Automating these tasks with the assistance of a VA FLIX Virtual Assistant will help your company achieve the same level of reach without relying on your own energy and hard work.
How to Get an Amazon Virtual Assistant Up and Running from VA FLIX
With all of the above in mind, it may appear that you are hiring a full-time or part-time employee. To be honest, it will not be that expensive. If you are aware of the common tasks that your virtual assistant will assist you with, you can easily delegate or assign those tasks. More on that in a moment, but for now, let us focus on the tasks that you can begin delegating right away if you have a VA FLIX virtual assistant:
- Supervising your Amazon listings.
A virtual assistant from VA FLIX working on your Amazon account can easily supervise your ready-made listings, from looking at how you rank for specific keywords to managing the optimization of your listings for SEO purposes. You’ll be able to free yourself from the daily work of monitoring your online Store’s success, allowing you to focus on new products and new plans.
- Customer Service.
Do you want to prevent customer service emails and phone calls? The only way to do it is to delegate the task to someone else. Without checking customer support on a regular basis on Amazon or eBay, you may notice your reviews dwindling and your bottom line suffering. Having a virtual assistant step in and handle customer support duties is a great way to avoid this.
Do you enjoy conducting research? Even if research isn’t your favorite part of working with Amazon or eBay — and, to be honest, it isn’t for many people!!! You can always use the extra capacity that comes with hiring a VA FLIX assistant. Discovering or researching products to purchase at a wholesale price, selling them on Amazon, and researching competition are all important parts of keeping your Amazon business afloat. Allow an assistant from VA FLIX to assist you with your eCommerce research and you will be surprised at how much time you can save to focus on what you want to focus on.
Do You Need a Virtual Assistant to manage your Amazon Store?
Even with all that an Amazon virtual assistant can do for you and your company, it’s natural to be wary of trying something new. That’s why we’ve outlined some of the following data to demonstrate how effective having a Virtual Assistant working for you can be:
- Flexibility regarding payment.
The average virtual assistant salary will vary depending on industry and location, partly due to the difference between hiring part-time versus full-time, but you should have no trouble finding a price point that works for you.

That’s a FACT!

Have you been avoiding hiring someone from another country to assist you with your Amazon ambitions because you’re concerned they won’t have the skills and experience you do? You’d be surprised. Almost 60% of virtual assistants work full-time these days, and VA FLIX’s Virtual Assistants are all highly educated.
