Pro 3 - Offshore Staff Can Help You Grow Your Business
There are many ways outsourcing can help you to grow your business. As I mentioned before, offshore staff can focus on critical admin tasks and free up the time of your local staff to invest more time seeing clients and develop relationships.
Offshore staff can focus on critical admin tasks and free up the time of your local staff.
You can have offshore staff perform marketing tasks that generate leads for your business, for example:
- customer satisfaction surveys,
- social media tasks,
and other tasks that many businesses know they need to perform but never get around to as they are too busy doing the daily ‘stuff’.
Pro 4 - Virtual Assistants Give You A Lifestyle
So I mentioned in my first point that the average business owner works over 52 hours per week which is of course time you could be with your family, friends, walking the dog maybe and even spending time on simple pleasures like being there for your family at dinner time.
You can choose how you invest your time.
The main point here is you can actually CHOOSE how you invest your time and have your offshore staff handle the tasks that would normally keep you in the office.
Pro 5 - Offshore Staff Can Be Constantly Monitored
There are several ways we keep an eye on outsourced staff, all of which are designed to ensure you are getting the maximum result with the least amount of risk.
You can always monitor your offshore staff.
- Random screen snapshots
- Software that manages interactions
- Access to our own methods that allow you to watch your staff work live
- Daily records of how long and tasks take to complete
- A full time allocated supervisor that monitors any performance issues
- Local Australian account managers that help iron out / fix problems that may arise
These last 2 points are attractive to many clients as we’re very experienced in outsourcing and know how to handle many issues that may arise and work with integrating offshore staff into a business.
Ok, that’s it. Please be sure to check out the Con’s video where I cover the problems that may arise around outsourcing and how to overcome them.
