Many small business owners start each new year with specific goals of cutting costs, increasing sales and better managing their businesses. Often these goals are not met; resulting in decreased customer satisfaction and decreased profits.
Many small businesses are starting to rely increasingly on the professional support of virtual assistants, or VAs, to handle everything from their daily office tasks to more industry-specific support projects. Virtual assistants are professional business owners and independent contractors who support businesses from a remote location.
With over 50 members in the tri-state area, the Delaware Valley Virtual Assistants Association (http://www.dvvaa.org) has experienced a notable increase in membership in the last 90 days as more area virtual assistants recognize the value in being part of a professional association. DVVAA provides valuable information to emerging and established virtual assistants in the tri-state area by providing industry support. Quarterly peer luncheons, business card exchanges, an online member discussion list, monthly online chat meetings and industry-related resources are all part of the benefits to members.
The DVVAA website not only serves virtual assistants, but also offers benefits to area businesses. Potential clients are able to take advantage of a free online Request For Proposal system to aid them in locating a virtual assistant who offers the specific skills and experience they are looking for.
This time of year creates a great opportunity for businesses to discover how a virtual assistant can help them meet their goals. “Businesses are now realizing that hiring a virtual assistant can be extremely cost-effective,” says Mary Motz, co-founder of the Delaware Valley Virtual Assistants Association. “Virtual assistants in the Delaware Valley are making a name for themselves as highly ethical business entrepreneurs as they continue to partner and build their businesses,” states Motz.
The Delaware Valley Virtual Assistants Association was founded in 2002 to provide a support to emerging virtual assistants in the tri-state area. The Delaware Valley Virtual Assistant’s Association is open to New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware based virtual assistants. 2006 is the perfect time for business owners to meet their goals of increasing customer satisfaction and their profits by partnering with a professional virtual assistant.
