3 Tips to Remember When Hiring a Virtual Assistant
Make sure that you can communicate with each other. Does your consultant understand your instruction? Have it repeated back to you to make sure there is no miscommunication.
Have a list of specific tasks written down that you want your consultant to handle for you. (You can always add more later.) You want to give your consultant enough tasks that you’re actually being helped by the service but not enough to be overwhelming in the beginning. You and your consultant need an adjustment time to get to know each other and how to work together for your benefit.
Make sure there is a clear plan for keeping in touch with each other. Will you use email, text, phone, or some form of online communication or a combination? How should your consultant contact you about questions or concerns? How will you contact your consultant if a pressing need should arise? Do you want to have a weekly conference to see how the work is progressing?
