Remote Working – The New Norm?

Do you work from home? Is remote working the new normal for 2021?

For us as virtual assistants, we’ve been working from home since 2004! This makes us experts in the virtual working arena.

So what exactly is remote working? Well it can be pretty much anything.

Here are a few examples of work from home jobs:

And the list goes on…..

Working from home as an employee means your employer determines and controls your working hours, holidays and work load.

As a self employed business owner you have more control over what you do and who you do it for.

So – what is the answer if you are self employed or if you’re a small business who doesn’t have any employees? Is it to employ remote staff?

Well, that’s one solution. But it also means you would have to pay your staff a certain amount each month. That would also include any holiday entitlement.

You would also be responsible for maternity and paternity pay for new parents. Plus any other employer contributions.

A simpler solution would be to invest in the services of another small business owner, such as a virtual assistant, or virtual office services business.

They would be able to carry out any or all of the above tasks and more, without any of the red tape.

So, it may cost a little bit more per hour but you would save on all the other employer costs. Plus you’re not usually tied in as you can normally pay as you go!

And the bonus is, if you’re not happy you can cancel anytime, or change service providers quite easily without any repercussions.

It’s certainly worth thinking about isn’t it?

Real Life Alexa?

How many of you remember your first work computer? I do, it was a Commodore PC and was attached to a dot matrix printer. You know the type where you had to pop the paper over the little cogs at the side and ended up with reams of paper all over the floor?


This was back in 1984 when I was just 17! I remember my first job interview as I had to take a manual typing test and I was so nervous. I spent two years at this telecommunications first despatching engineers to fix telephone, emergency lighting and fire alarm systems.


Those were the days when I seemed to be able to memorise everything. Over the years as computers have been upgraded and we’re relying on them more and more my memory seems to have gotten worse and worse! Or it could just be an age thing!


What was your first job, and what type of equipment did you use? Have you found technology is affecting your cognitive ability or enhancing it? And with the likes of Siri and Alexa, are we becoming far too reliant on artificial intelligence?

If you would prefer a real life Alexa then get in touch as you can get 20% off virtual assistant services until the end of this year!

CMS – What is it really?

CMS stands for Content Management System – it is an application used to upload content to a website. It is usually accessed through a web browser.

Basic features include:

Content creation
Storage of that content
Workflow management
Publishing

If you’re a bit tech savvy & have created your own website you will already be using the CMS.

But for those of you who have had a website designed for you. You may not know how to update the information on it.

Your web designer can give you access to the CMS.

Often designers are very busy so they don’t have time to maintain a website. Web designers tend to focus on building new sites. Or they may charge you more than you would like to pay.

In these instances there is an alternative. This alternative is great if you only need to add new content to your site. It could be a blog, change company information, or even new services etc.

A Content Management Virtual Assistant can do all this for you. The CMS VA can also do this in conjunction your social media management so all company information is current.

Content Management Service for SMEs

Small business owners and entrepreneurs are you using a content management service to keep your website up to date? If you have a website you will know how expensive they can be to maintain.

Your web designer would have created the site and taken care of all the technical stuff. But have they given you access to the content management system (CMS) so that you can maintain it yourself?

My guess is probably not, if you’re not technically minded. It can get very expensive asking your designer to do this for you as they often charge very high rates or daily fees.

This is where a content management service can help. Especially if you have to make subtle changes to wording, or add new content or plugins such as setting up a chat facility for instance.

Just give us the logins and show us around the system and we’ll get onto it straight away. We do it already for some of our long standing clients and our own website.

This is a brand new content management service – just one more thing your virtual assistant can do to help make your life easier. Take a look here.

Small Business Owners

Small Business Owners are you giving value to your customers by given them your full attention? Do you feel like a ‘Jack of All Trades, Master of None’!

You may have a few good customers but need a few more to make your business viable.  However, because you’re so busy with the day to day stuff, such as accounting, chasing suppliers, processing orders, social media marketing and the day to day running of the office you fall short on customer service.  This in turn affects your credibility and reputation.

Maybe you have already received a few complaints but not because you don’t want to offer a good service, but because you’re simply too busy and not focused on your clients’ needs. You can’t afford to employ staff and have little other resources so what do you do?

This is where a Virtual Assistant comes in and can add value to your business by taking the pressure off you without breaking your bank balance by freeing up your time so you can do what you do best.
