If you are running a business that is in the service industry such as plumbing or HVAC services
, then it might make a lot of sense to hire a virtual assistant. They will not only be able to handle tasks that you don't have the time to manage, but they can also offer various efficiencies and help to grow the business more quickly.
Somebody There When You Can't Be
Many times in the service industry, the primary business owner may be out on a service call or handling a job. They might also be conducting a sales call, which is one time that you do not want to be interrupted with an administrative task. When you have a virtual assistant, you have somebody there whenever you decide it is necessary and they can handle incoming calls, field emails or set appointments while you are doing something else.
