Are you a network marketer overwhelmed with essential but time-consuming tasks necessary to make your business successful? Have you ever thought to yourself, “if there were two of me, I could get so much more done”? With cloning unlikely to become a viable solution for the foreseeable future, what if instead you could efficiently delegate those recurring tasks so necessary to grow your business to someone uniquely skilled at helping you succeed?
At VAUSA we lead all of our clients through a deliberate delegation assessment, but we also have considerable experience helping network markers overcome their unique challenges. By trusting one of our virtual assistants to become your second pair of hands, personal and professional opportunities open up that were previously unattainable. To get you started on this journey, see below some of the typical tasks our network marketers delegate to their virtual assistant.
Frequently when we speak with our network marketers they say that building and sustaining their team is both an essential part of the business and an area where they need the most help. Conveying your vision by organizing team meetings, offering encouragement, scheduling speakers, researching and offering resources, and organizing engagement activities such as book clubs shows your team members that you are invested in their success. Knowing how much engagement is best depending on the likelihood a product user is to become a business builder requires careful monitoring of their responses to engagement opportunities. All of these functions call for careful management of myriad details, not to mention carefully spending your most valuable resource — time. A VA can make this vital part of the business more efficient by giving structure to your vision and employing automation tools such as Google Voice and Project Broadcast to communicate with team members.
Social media management can be one of the most enjoyable tasks for some, especially in the start-up phase of a business. However, as a business grows this task can quickly become time consuming and tedious. Between crafting messages, responding to comments, and creating and posting content you can easily spend hours with your two thumbs on that little screen, making this essential business function an outstanding candidate for delegation.
All of our assistants are expected to have a strong working knowledge of tools such as Canva that are proven to be effective for social media management. In addition, they have a team of colleagues to lean into for sharing ideas. As an example of one idea for delegating social media tasks, ask your VA to create Friends Lists in Facebook and spend 30 minutes a day interacting with those friends on your behalf. This keeps you present on social media, but also present for your and your family’s needs.
Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, important life milestones, and promotions are all examples of events that should be recognized by a team leader but that also become difficult to manage with growth. Task your VA with creating a “get to know you” form that is sent to all new team members. The form captures information about their birthday, favorite restaurants, shops, drinks, snacks, etc., and even their dislikes. When it comes time to send a gift, the information your VA needs to send a token of your appreciation is readily available.
In addition, there are numerous applications available that your assistant can use for hospitality purposes. While Etsy is a go-to source for gift-giving, challenge your assistant to look into other unique options for different occasions. Sent-Well for cards, Greetabl for inexpensive personalized gifts, and Happy Box for gift boxes are just a few of the available options.
Team member engagement, social media management, and gifting are just the start of the kinds of tasks a virtual assistant can do for you. A VA can even plan a date night out for you and your significant other — from the restaurant reservations to lining up a sitter for your children. Most importantly, our virtual assistants become an integral part of their client’s team by knowing their needs almost as well as they know themselves. Adept at organizing and communicating, they set goals with you and then help you achieve them. Our VAs let you nurture your leaders, develop ideas for your business, and focus on your family. A virtual assistant from VAUSA is the resource you have been waiting for.
