As a Tradesperson, your days can be spent flat out running from job to job, trying to answer phone calls, responding to emails, checking voicemails, and evenings spent sorting quotes, invoices and catching up on admin. Whilst a tradesperon’s skills lie in their craft, they might not have all the computer or admin skills. What could take a tradesperson hours, especially after a long day at work, could take a Virtual Assistant much less time. Often, sole traders can feel stretched and overwhelmed and this is where a Virtual Assistant can support Tradespeople.
To tradespeople such as builders, plumbers, gas engineers, chimney sweeps, electricians and decorators, time is money! A Virtual Assistant can help you save and make money by freeing up your time to focus on the money earning jobs!
What Tasks Could Tradesmen Outsource to a Virtual Assistant?
Quotes and Invoices
A Virtual Assistant can create quote and invoice templates, send new quotes and invoices to customers and also chase up responses.
Calendar and Appointment Management
Rather than spending time on the phone scheduling appointments and updating your calendar with bookings, a Virtual Assistant can do this for you.
If your inbox is overflowing with emails, enquiries and junk mail, a Virtual Assistant can support tradespeople by getting you back on top of your inbox and keeping it organised. If you are using a gmail or hotmail, a VA can set up a professional email address for you. We can also reply to customers and enquiries on your behalf.
A Virtual Assistant can order parts and tools as and when required. We can also research suppliers and costs.
Social Media Management
A Virtual Assistant can set up and manage your Social Media accounts. We can schedule content to be posted as often as required and can also reply to any comments and queries. A Virtual Assistant can research topics and provide ideas for new posts. A VA can also research hashtags and groups and use insights to see how your posts are performing and help grow your Social Media reach.
Website Build and Management
A Virtual Assistant can create a brochure website for your business. They can also get your business set up on Google My Business, set up Google Analytics and provide regular website maintenance and plugin updates.
