In today’s global, mobile economy, an increasing number of people are hiring virtual assistants. While most people see virtual assistants as secretaries who can help with tasks such as data entry, admin tasks and scheduling meetings, you can hire a trained virtual assistant to help you with much more.

Virtual staffing is a huge industry and many people offering their services have past experience in the marketing industry. If you need somebody to help you with social media management, then you can either find a person who is willing to work remotely on these tasks, hire a virtual assistant who can go about finding a person with this skill, or hire a virtual assistant who is willing to take on the task of doing social media management.

The benefit of working with virtual staff members is that it can save you a lot of money. When hiring full-time staff, you will be responsible for their benefits, annual leave and other tax implications that go along with having on-site staff members and you will need to ensure you are able to cover the payroll costs. With payroll being the top expense for most companies, you should try to cut down on these costs wherever possible.

Hiring remote workers make sense for many businesses and it can work for you. Alternatively, you can partner with a company like WSI OMS who has a team of copywriters, social media managers, PPC campaign managers and website designers and developers to help you execute your digital marketing strategies.
