Let’s face it, the “do it yourself” age can be a real convenience -- when you have the time that is. However, when you don’t have the time it can really put a dent in your daily schedule. This means you have to either pay someone to do your marketing for you, or scramble to get it done on your own time – somehow. There is another option that provides you with the affordability of the DIY marketing plan with the convenience of having someone do the work for you: The Virtual Assistant.
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A virtual assistant provides a number of different services at a fraction of the cost of a marketing assistant or marketing company.
So what exactly is a virtual assistant? In this case, a virtual assistant offers marketing services such as creating eflyers, building virtual tours, scheduling photo shoots or even uploading your images to MLS. Instead of an expensive salary you would pay a team member or a very high rate you would pay a marketing company, you pay a small fee to have these tasks performed for you.
How does it Work?
A virtual assistant is so named as everything is handled remotely from a virtual office. Your orders can be placed via email, online chat or phone. It takes just a few steps to get your marketing materials or tasks performed:
Your order is placed
A quote is provided
Your information is emailed to the Virtual Assistant
They do the work and send a proof
A small fee is added to your order and the work is complete
What are the Benefits of a Virtual Assistant?
There are many benefits to using a virtual assistant including:
It is a convenient and affordable way to handle all of your marketing needs.
It is the perfect solution for those who are "digitally" or "technically" challenged.
You use their services only when you need them as opposed to having someone on staff earning a regular salary.
The menial tasks that tend to take up the most time are off your plate so you can focus on more important tasks.
They have the skill set required to perform marketing tasks efficiently so the work is done quickly.
They do not charge the astronomical fees associated with marketing companies but instead add a small fee to what you currently pay for your DIY marketing.
They offer choices so you can do as much or as little as you want for each campaign or listing.
The services are adaptable to your needs.
