Christmas is, without a doubt, one of the busiest times a year for most small business owners.
The Tax Return deadline is right around the corner, higher volumes of sales and enquiries are coming through and you have to buy Christmas gifts for your staff (to name but a few)!
It's easy to find yourself completely stressed with all of the extra work that you need to take care of and worried that you won't actually get to take a break at all this holiday.
I've put together this guide to show you just how your virtual assistant can help you enjoy yourself this Christmas.
1. Customer Support
Your Virtual Assistant can help you stay on top of all your Christmas orders by dealing with customer enquiries and processing orders. VA's are usually quick to learn most systems and can help to keep customer satisfaction high and order fulfilment efficient.
2. Social Media
Whilst you're taking a break this Christmas, it's not a good idea to shut your business down entirely. A VA can help to remind customers about your business, ready for when you re-open, by sending out social media posts, updates and festive wishes throughout the holidays.
3. Chasing Payments
As the end of the year approaches, your VA can help you to keep your finances in order by chasing up any outstanding payments with your customers.
4. Christmas Newsletters
Do you have any special deals to promote? Closing times or final order dates to announce? Or maybe you just want to wish all of your customers or suppliers a Merry Christmas and let them know what you're planning for next year?
A VA can help you achieve this by creating and sending a newsletter to everyone on your mailing list.
5. Gift Shopping/Christmas Cards
Your VA can help you reward your staff for all of their hard work this year by sourcing and ordering their Christmas gifts. They can also Christmas cards or e-cards to send to staff and key business contacts.
These are just a handful of examples of what your virtual assistant can help you with this Christmas.
Don't forget that they can also help with unfinished tasks including; proofreading and editing, article writing and so much more.
