Photographers- Need an assistant but fear the affordability factor?

  • Do you have administration tasks that don’t need you doing them?
  • Would it be nice to open the shop with very few client and potential customer inquiry emails?
  • Are most of your packages and customer questions repetitive?
  • Do you have standard info and requirements that you ask of each client?
  • How about those follow-up calls? They take up your time too, right?

Tips About Hiring A Virtual Assistant

There are many decisions to make when considering a VA or if you should even use one at all. I would like to point out a few things to try and some essential qualities you can look for while you are searching for your ideal service provider. This can also be helpful to Virtual Assistants looking to improve their worth, by examining how you position yourself in your service based business.

TWEETABLE:  How do you want to position yourself in business? Then, examine if you truly live up to that role. (click to tweet)

#1 Set up a trial test. This will be your greatest advantage in determining how well you will be able to work together. Setting up a trial period of two weeks, a month, or by allocating a certain task, that represents the projects you will be assigning to your VA, will open a huge perspective of what your business is all about.#2 It will also showcase the quality of work your Virtual Assistant can offer.

Some questions you might ask yourself after this trial are:

  • Do the tasks you assign get completed within the time frame you specified?
  • Is their communication thorough?
  • Do they respond within a timely fashion?
  • Did they perform the tasks with quality in mind?
  • Did they actually do what they said they would or collaborate with you about any changes?
  • Have any questions been asked?

#3 Reputation. Another great way to decide if a VA is right for you is to ask for references, just like you would in a job application. If they don’t have any experience, then your best option will be to set up the trial test and gauge their commitment to you and the quality of their work. Or you can ask for character, ethical work experience or about their ability to work diligently type of references  instead of the typical references.

#4 Communication. Oh, I know you’ve heard it before, but it really is the foundation to any relationship, especially professional relationships. Not only does the client need to voice their needs, goals, and expectations but the assistant will have those too. So be sure to ask your Virtual Assistant if they have any requirements when working together like preferred communication method, project hour availability, what projects they enjoy working on and which niche areas they are proficient in.

One key quality to watch for is how timely they respond and if it is acceptable for your needs. If not, just ask for regular check-ins and see how well they commit.

So here’s what to look for:

  • Get Familiar with a Trial Test 
  • Measurable Efficiency & Quality 
  • Solid Reputation
  • Timely & Thorough Communication

You should be able to gauge how your relationship with a Virtual Assistant will work with these basic, yet essential tips and ideas.
