Running a business can be one of the most rewarding ventures that you will ever take, but also one of the toughest. As a business owner, you wear many hats during the working day from being the sales person to the bookkeeper, heading up the marketing team to offering customer service support to your customers and clients.
It’s easy to see how tasks and projects can begin to slide through the cracks and get forgotten about. Reports build up on your desk for weeks and don’t get sent to clients on time, invoices aren’t being followed up and before you know it, there is no time to try and generate new leads or sales for your business, the very tasks that keep your business afloat.
Generating leads and sales are so important for your business because, without these, your business wouldn’t be able to run. This is why it’s essential that you look after these two processes.
Thankfully when you need support in your business you don’t have to face it alone, that’s what a Virtual Assistant is for. Your Virtual Assistant can help with generating leads and sales in a number of ways. They can create and post content to your social media platforms and to your website and blog, which can then help to generate interest in your business once it gets in front of the right people.
Tip: If you create your content yourself, your Virtual Assistant can use a scheduling software such as Content Cal to schedule all of your content for the week or month ahead.
Your Virtual Assistant can also reach out to prospects and your target market on your behalf with platforms such as LinkedIn and Instagram. They can contact and message prospects to try and turn them into leads. They can also step in and help with your email marketing, which if used correctly can be a fantastic way to convert your audience into leads, by helping to automate your emails and ensure that you are keeping in contact with your email list. Not only can they ensure that your emails are being sent but your Virtual Assistant can also assist with creating email sequences, depending on their skill set.
Ultimately if you thrive at generating leads and sales yourself, your Virtual Assistant can step in and help with some of the more time consuming tasks that swallow up your time, so that you can focus your attention and energy on leads and sales and therefore create more revenue for your business.
