Why Do You Need a Virtual Sales Assistant

Given all of these points above, I’m sure you’ve got questions in your head…  
  1. Why bother?
  2. Can’t you have all of the things mentioned above if you were to hire a full-time sales employee?
  3. 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 how VAFLIX does the magic, it is so  true that virtual assistants won’t be physically present, they can’t bring you coffee! BUT you may find out that the advantages of hiring one can outweigh the needs and wants to have your assistant with you at the office.

Cost Wise. In the sales standpoint, it is definitely all about the bottom line. So how does hiring someone from VAFLIX can help you in the sales process and give a massive impact to 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 great advantages here is that you won’t commit to a virtual assistant like you would otherwise have to pay for a full-time local employee. You are not paying benefits. You are not going to pay anything to relocate them. You’re just literally simply hiring someone at an hourly rate. That’s it!  That makes it so much easier to figure out the bottom line as you evaluate the value of a virtual sales assistant who can help you with closing deals. Tips are great! If you can see the number of new clients coming in because of your Virtual Sales Assistant help – feel free to tip your VA’s. 

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 a 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 hidden costs like employee benefits, a virtual assistant hire is a very straightforward, simple way to add to your sales team.
