We’ve all probably received those emails or Facebook posts, encouraging us to take a look at the latest productivity hacks, or new systems for handling email, document storage or contact records.
But the problem is, there are so many of them – Evernote, Hubspot, Salesforce, to name just three – that it is possible to spend half the day reading about how to become more efficient. Should you choose to spend money purchasing one – and some can be quite expensive – then you need to put more unproductive time to one side, just to train yourself up on how to use your new acquisition. Is that time and money you can really afford?
And the problem is often one of trying to discover which system or online tool will really be most effective to solve your particular issues. But it can be hard to get past the marketing speak, to find which will really work for you.
So there’s a shortcut to this particular attempt at making yourself more efficient. You simply outsource your system search to a virtual assistant. Typically, a virtual assistant will have had practical experience, working alongside different clients, with many of the most popular customer relationship, bookkeeping, sales funnel and document storage software available today. And that means they will have picked up plenty of experience understanding what works well – and what doesn’t – when it comes to handling specific tasks.
Want to know the most effective software for scanning business cards, filing reports, and so on? Ask your virtual assistant what they recommend, and you’ll soon see the benefits. And, if you ask the virtual assistant to carry out the tasks for you, then you can be sure they know what they are doing, and will be able to complete the task in a timely, efficient fashion.
So, no need to waste time and effort on an online hunt by yourself. Get in touch with us today and see what we can do for you and your business. Now that’s what we call a really effective productivity hack!
