Many small business owners are turning to Virtual Assistants to help manage their workload. By outsourcing certain tasks it will free up your valuable time. Having trouble deciding what sort of tasks you can outsource? We've put together a list of the top 4 tasks you should outsource to a virtual assistant:
1. Social Media Management
Developing a cohesive social media strategy among all platforms is time-consuming. After the strategy is developed you're still going to need to continually posts. It's recommended a minimum of 3 times a week, but generally, you should post several times a day. The more you post, the more opportunities people have to interact with your page. The more people interact with your page, the better visibility, brand awareness you have across all platforms!

3. Calendar Management

Plus you won't forget your top client's birthday ever again!
4. Compliance (Real Estate Specific)
