You may have a multitude of reasons that prevent you from hiring full-time staff or temporary staff.
You may not need a full time or even part-time employee but just require someone for occasional or limited admin and marketing services.
Then there are the employer's responsibilities when hiring staff, employees are entitled to sick pay, maternity leave and paid holiday and often seek generous benefits packages. It is estimated that the true cost of an employee is over double and often up to triple the cost of their annual salary in terms of benefits and liabilities.
Doing small and often trivial administrative chores or designed campaign, website building or updates... yourself does not really add value to your business and the sensible solution is to delegate those less profitable tasks by hiring someone more than capable of carrying them out, but their hourly rate or prices is somewhat less than your real financial worth.
What is significant for some potential employers is also the loss of privacy and space. If you are working from home or have limited office space. You may not want an employee working from home or simply not have the room for an additional employee in your office or all the equipment they may need. The more your business grows, the more administrative tasks you have; the more time you spend on administrative tasks, the less time you have to generate new business. YOUR time is most valuable because it is your responsibility to generate new revenue for your business.
Here a solution if you find yourself overwhelmed with admins task and cannot afford to hire an employee.
Wouldn't it be nice if you had a business assistant that was always ready to work for you, but only when you need them? Providing secretarial services from their own home or office, using their own equipment?
Remote admin, an invaluable new workforce that provides a practical solution for Sole Traders and SME owners. Remote admin frees up your valuable time so you can concentrate on the important things that only you can do in your business. There is no need to share office space or even for your remote admin to live in the same town or city due to the technology we have at our disposal today.
Work assignments are communicated through email; telephone, fax or post and web-based tools such as instant messengers, video links, Zoom, Skype and online calendars and planners are also often used as a means of keeping in touch.
Because your remote admin is self-employed, and invoices you only for the actual hours worked or by tasks completed, and is dependent on referrals and steady work flow from existing clients, she/he can be the perfect solution for busy small businesses or entrepreneurs.
Hiring Business Support Services
When you hire a remote admin you get all the benefits of outsourcing - no employer liabilities, tax, and benefits issues, coupled with the loyalty and steadiness of a company executive admin and you have someone to whom you can delegate tasks in confidence that the work given will be done professionally and accurately to your standard.
Your remote admin can return telephone calls, answer e-mails, and draft letters for you. They can run your diary, deal with your post, run your marketing campaign, design your next presentation, record keeping for that important Tax return.
Remote admins are already computer trained and can assist with your specific needs from traditional office support services to highly specialized areas including web site design or update. You can also equip your remote admin to go beyond traditional secretarial support to client acquisition, marketing support and SEO.
You can easily justify a business support assistant in terms of your greater productivity and your greater efficiency. You need to be the leader in your business and your remote admin will ensure that you focus on what is important, rather than urgent. Your remote admin can also lend "size" to your company, which will impress potential clients.
As more and more businesses move their marketing and communications to the Internet, remote Admins are becoming the obvious solution to staffing issues. For an hourly fee often less than the cost of temporary staff or the real cost of employees, businesses can take advantage of professional assistance and a variety of experience, knowledge, and skills at the click of a mouse.
