One of the most common questions I get when I tell people what I do is, “What is a technical virtual assistant?” As the workforce change, more people are warming up to the idea of telecommuting or working remotely. This is where the word “Virtual” comes into place but before I explain what a Technical Virtual Assistant is; we must first define what is a Virtual Assistant.
We are all familiar with job titles such as Receptionist, Executive Office Assistant, and Personal Assistant. The person in this role handles different tasks from managing schedules, answering calls, invoicing and more. The traditional assistant shows up to the office in person and works from said location. Now there’s another type of assistant that’s growing in popularity and they hardly (if ever) step foot inside the office.
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant or VA for short is someone who provides the Professional Administrative Assistance remotely. Basically, all they need is a working computer, a good WiFi connection, and block of time to do the work that you hire them to do. Since they do not work in your office, there’s no need to worry about the additional costs that come with needing extra space. Another benefit, is that a VA does not need to be local to you.
With technology, you can have the ability to create a great working relationship with a virtual assistant based anywhere in the world. Of course, you should weigh the pros and cons of working with someone within your time zone versus outside your time zone. And the more you dive into the world of virtual assistance you will find tons of individuals who hold a variety of different skills. This is why you may come across on a VA who specializes in certain areas or working with specific tools, such as a technical virtual assistant.
What is a Technical Virtual Assistant?
Like I mention before each VA you will come in contact with will have a different set of skills and specialty. It’s up to you to figure out first what your needs are and seek out the Virtual Assistant who has the skills. One type of VA is a Technical Virtual Assistant. We (myself included) are the ones that specialize in the field of technology. We can take on tasks ranging from maintaining websites, social media, email marketing and more. It’s like having your own tech support department for your business.
A Tech VA (see what I did there, if not I’m The Tech VA on IG and FB) may be the first virtual assistant you hire. However, it’s perfectly okay to start out with a general skilled virtual assistant and change if and when your needs change in the future. The key is to hire for a role, so you can get someone who is highly skilled in a the specific area you need help in. There will be some things that you may know how to do but it takes up too much of your time. Or the tasks you don’t know how to handle, in that case, it would be beneficial to have someone else handle it.
