Now that you’ve taken the time to make a list of tasks that you want to outsource, it’s time to take the next step…finding the right Virtual Assistant to work with.
You could easily go to Upwork or Google and type in virtual assistant services to find numerous service providers. The best practice is to ask for referrals from those around you who you trust. Make a list of 3-5 people that you know have outsourced successfully and ask them for recommendations. Tell them what your needs are and what you’re looking for.
After you have some names, reach out and contact them. Most Virtual Assistants offer a free consultation call. Set up a time to have a quick phone or Skype conversation with them. You’ll want to spend time talking with each prospect to get an idea of their skill set, their personality and whether you communicate well together. After this initial contact, both of you will have a better feel for each other and whether or not it would be a good fit.
