“Virtual assistants”, the word which has brought a phenomenal change in the online business industry. Most of the industries are using them to outsource tasks to make their work easier and faster. With these employees, there is no headache of paying anything extra like insurance, vacations, sick days and more.
If you have this online personal assistant to handle your daily tasks then here, I am going to tell you some tips through which you can have most of your virtual professional experience.
• When you assign any new task, make sure that you convey it in short and crispy nature. Put things in bullet so that they are easy to understand. Nobody wants to read full details in paragraphs. Moreover, after assigning work, confirm about the instructions and deadlines.
• There should be a forum or some help desk so that you both can have a private meeting to discuss about confidential issues related to project, client, instructions or any other comments.
• You should have different email accounts so that you can send multiple mails through different id’s. This is important so that no important information gets missed even when server is down.
• It is essential that you keep track of work performed by your assistant but do not hound over them. With this, their creativity can be hampered.
• An online personal assistant always expects an organized and professional client. So, better act like that. Do not push them to work, they are not paid for.
• Even, when unsatisfied follow the politeness initially. Be gentle in your negative feedback. If you feel any communication issues, feel free to talk about it.
• Last but not the least, feel it completely free to ask about the abilities, their interest, their payment mode, their preferences if any etc. This will help you to decide about the person you are hiring.
These simple tips will help you a lot in bringing positive results in his work and in the relationship between both of you.
