When you are looking for an effective and efficient virtual assistant for your team, you’ll want to keep an eye out for certain things.
- Does the virtual assistant have several skill sets?
Why get several VAs when you can get just one or two?
- Does the VA speak English fluently?
O.K. This may not be so important for some projects, but if you’ll be working with this VA a lot, it is much more helpful if you can understand what the VA is saying and feel confident that he or she understands what you are saying.
- Does the VA have the software and hardware necessary to get the job done?
You might be surprise how much longer it takes to get certain tasks done with out the proper equipment. Make sure the VA you hire has the right tools to do the job you are hiring them for.
- Does the VA have a good track record?
Does the VA have testimonials? Can you speak to references? Do your due diligence before hiring!
