You may know about a lot of the tasks a virtual assistant can accomplish - answering the phone, delivering messages, calendar and appointment management, etc. are all common virtual assistant features. But some of our creative clients have come up with interesting, surprising ways to use virtual assistants - these are so neat, we wanted to share them with you!
Here are 3 surprising things virtual assistants can do. Whether you’ve been working with a virtual assistant for months or have just signed up, these tips can be great inspiration as you determine what tasks you’ll need your VA to help with. Feel free to “steal” these ideas and start using your virtual assistant’s services in new and unique ways!
Many people assume a virtual assistant can only help with business or work-related events and happenings, but that’s not the case with Conversational! Our virtual assistants can help you manage both your work and personal calendar and schedule to ensure there’s no overlap and that no event or obligation is forgotten. From your daughter’s gymnastics meet on Wednesday to your shareholder meeting on Friday, your virtual assistant can help you stay on top of important dates and times so you don’t miss anything essential. You can ask you virtual assistant to:
Just because a virtual assistant isn’t in the office with you doesn’t mean they can’t step fully into the assistant role! Your virtual assistant can make reservations for you easily. Just provide her with the name of the restaurant, the address, the number of guests, and the time you’d like to reserve a table for. She will call the restaurant and make the reservation on your behalf, then confirm that reservation with you and add it to your calendar.
You can also have your virtual assistant send confirmation of the reservation to the other members of the party who will be joining you.
If you’ve got some online shopping to do for a family member’s upcoming birthday or the office supply of Keurig is running low, you can ask your virtual assistant to take care of these orders for you. Simply provide your virtual assistant with the information for the credit card or PayPal account you’d like to use for the transaction and make a note of the item number or description you’d like ordered.
Your virtual assistant can place that order and either keep your card information on file securely for later purchases or destroy the card information immediately based on your instruction.
The things virtual assistants can do aren’t limited to answering phones and taking messages. A virtual assistant can be more like a personal assistant than many people realize! By letting your assistant take your calls, make reservations for you, handle your online shopping, and manage your personal calendar and schedule, you’ll be better organized and have more free time than ever!
