Small Business Virtual Assistant Services in NZ
September 15, 2023

Launching a successful business is never an easy task. Kiwis have their own set of challenges to deal with when starting a business in New Zealand. Studies show that between blows to mental health and ongoing economic turmoil, it seems as if all hope is lost for knackered kiwi entrepreneurs. If you’re one of them, you probably know what we mean. 

But is that really the case? 

A quick squiz at this situation might show that virtual assistants have an integral part to play in empowering you.

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is typically a highly qualified, seasoned administrative professional who provides their services in assisting a business with its admin tasks, office management, database management, personal assistant tasks like scheduling appointments and sending out emails, etc. There are over 150 tasks that you can offload to your virtual assistant. We have a whole E-book on that! Drop your email address and we’ll mail it to you right away.

Benefits of using a virtual assistant

You can focus on core competencies

Virtual assistants will vastly minimize your workload by taking on the mundane tasks that you don’t like to do yourself. This way you can spend more time optimizing your business’s strengths and strategizing. Sweet as! That’s more like an entrepreneur.

Cut off costs by not hiring at all

New Zealand’s soaring inflation and contracting GDP – both discouraging signs of economic turmoil – have affected the cash flow of kiwi-owned businesses. What this means is that entrepreneurs no longer have enough funding to spend on new resources. 

The Changing the world of work 2022 report by Xero reveals that over a third of small business owners have stated that the process of managing employees has negatively impacted their mental health. The report also reveals that, with your typical employee taking up to four months to become well-acquainted with a job role, entrepreneurs are increasingly finding it unproductive to hire.

If you encounter the same issues, you can outsource certain jobs to a virtual assistant. We’ve identified 150+ jobs that virtual assistants can take on. You can drop your email address and we’ll send you our free Ebook on this. 
You won’t have to spend time and money on hiring and training new employees, be committed to grant them leaves and holidays, or organise and pay salaries and bonuses for them. Isn’t that choice?
