Why Do You Need a Virtual Sales Assistant
Given all of these points above, I’m sure you’ve got questions in your head…
- Why bother?
- Can’t you have all of the things mentioned above if you were to hire a full-time sales employee?
- Isn’t it better to have a full-time commitment of somebody who is physically present in the office?
We get it! Chill…
You’d be surprised at how VA FLIX works; it’s true that virtual assistants aren’t physically present, so they can’t bring you coffee! However, you may discover that the benefits of hiring one outweigh the needs and desires to have your assistant with you at the office.
Cost Wise. From a sales standpoint, it is definitely all about the bottom line. So how does hiring someone from VA FLIX can help you in the sales process and give a massive impact on that bottom line? It starts evaluating a virtual sales assistant in terms of cost.
Ask yourself, how much are you paying your local employee? How much do you pay for taxes and benefits?
One of the biggest benefits is that you won’t have to commit to a virtual assistant like you would to a full-time local employee. You do not pay statutory benefits. You will not be charged anything to relocate them. You’re essentially hiring someone on an hourly basis. That’s all! That makes calculating the bottom line much easier as you assess the value of a virtual sales assistant who can assist you in closing deals much easier. These are excellent suggestions! If you can see a significant increase in the number of new clients coming in as a result of your Virtual Sales Assistant assistance, feel free to tip your VAs.
Flexibility. When you have a local full-time employee, do you know how much you’re committing to? If you’re not yet sure and you want to expand the number of people in your Slack channel, then skipping straight to a full-time employee hire can be a big step. A Sales Virtual Assistant gives you the flexibility to outsource your prospecting tasks without making a HUUUUGE commitment. Keep in mind that the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the average cost of hire is about $30+ per hour— that includes unskilled workers who may know nothing about sales.
Some of the most complaints of anyone looking to add to their team — is one, the cost and number two, investment it takes to bring on a new employee— these are essentially washed away. When you factor in hidden costs like employee benefits, a virtual assistant hire is a very straightforward, simple way to add to your sales team.
