5 Reasons to budget for a Virtual Assistant for the organisation of your next
You can ask a VA to research availability and rates of venues and liaise with providers over contract details, catering, special requests and final numbers
You can rely on a VA to streamline the way you are selling tickets for your event –by suggesting ticketing platforms such as Get Invited which simplifies how you sell tickets and interact with your customers
You can task a VA with the marketing and advertising of the event, helping you to write a description of the event, create flyers, source advertising streams and schedule posts on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter etc.
You can leave the time-consuming task of coordinating people, organising meetings and gathering all necessary information to someone else.
Communication after the event is as important as before and during, and a VA can also help you send out a satisfaction survey or collate the results of surveys taken during the event.
What Skills can a Virtual Assistant bring to your event?
By hiring a Virtual Assistant, you are assured that you will have someone on board, who:
• quickly gets up to speed with what is happening
• has the experience to know what questions to ask in advance and is able to predict problems
• you can bounce ideas off
• you can hire for a pre-set number of hours or days a month to help with the planning
The beauty of being a Virtual Assistant is that all this can be done remotely with a laptop anywhere in world but flexibility and added customer value is also very important.
Hiring a ‘virtual’ assistant doesn’t mean that you can’t also have someone to be physically present on the night or before the event.
So, for your next event when working out the scope and the resources make sure you budget in the cost of hiring a VA to save your precious priceless mental energy along the way.
