New Outsourcing Concept Advances Business With A Virtual Assistant And Team Program

How to use Outsourcing and Virtual Assistants with these 3 Main Areas of Business


The contracting of virtual assistants (VA) is the next big step for allowing businesses of all sizes to cut costs while operating in an efficient manner.  And Moving Ahead Communications along with their sister company, The Ohio Help Group, bring affordable outsourcing to help with this through their Virtual Assistant Plus Program, changing the face of outsourcing as we know it with a one stop shop for outsourcing through virtual assistant teams. 


“Virtual assistants provide any combination of tasks including administrative, technical and even creative services to their clients, acting as an independent contractor,” said Diana Barnum, partner in both companies who combined work under the Moving Ahead with The Ohio Help Group.  “They work from their own offices, cutting out the costs of office space, operations costs and employment taxes, all of which usually fall to the responsibility of the employer.  However, this type of outsourcing allows businesses to reduce expenses and redirect certain tasks to virtual assistant so that key employees can focus of vital responsibilities.”


Many of the group’s clients are top internet marketers and repeat customers. Plus they often refer other clients and businesses as well.


“Diana's team does do great work. The articles that they did for me in two niches that I knew absolutely nothing about were so good that I ALMOST felt guilty at how little they charged,” said Willie Crawford, 11-year Internet marketing veteran, and founder of The Internet Marketing Inner Circle. “I've also watched Diana work behind the scenes in a trusted position... where she had access to the backend of a HUGE project, and she did an outstanding job. She is very conscientious.”


Three main areas where virtual assistants can be of help are:


1) Research


Research is a vital aspect of marketing and valuable time can be wasted within a company by employees who do not have the training and skills to conduct efficient research or who are tasked with multiple duties where research is a fraction of their responsibilities.  By outsourcing with virtual assistants and having them use research tools such as those offered by eBay and, a company can maximize its efficiency and stay ahead of the game.



2) Product Creation


While research tells a company how to fulfill the 4 P’s of marketing; Product, Price, Place (distribution) and Promotion, the product is what generates the profit.  Many products can be constructed by virtual assistants.  Videos and ebooks are two prime examples of products where a business can outsource the majority of the creation process.  Virtual assistants can even offer a service or a product on demand where specs are provided.  For instance, an ebook company can take requests from clients; the company can then turn around and contract virtual assistants to write the ebook to spec.


3) Sales & Marketing


A product can be top of the line, something that everyone needs or wants, but it does no good if no one ever sees it - if there is no promotion.  Sales and marketing tasks can be outsourced; for example, the design and maintenance of websites, the setting up and management of affiliate programs, the presentation of the company's campaigns, online and off, and various other tasks. Article marketing and blogging are additional popular and effective means of marketing. 


The bottom line is important. Virtual assistants can focus all their energies on their tasks, attending to details that may normally be ignored or missed by employees who are tasked with a variety of other responsibilities. By outsourcing vital tasks to virtual assistants, businesses can delegate non core operations to experts that exist outside of the business. 


And Moving Ahead Communications is breaking ground in providing businesses of any size a one stop shop for outsourcing through virtual assistant teams.  From administrative duties, press releases, copywriting and marketing, to web content, auto responders and other tasks, company assistants meet and exceed the needs of businesses where it counts through three primary areas: research, product creation and sales and marketing, thus cutting costs and increasing efficiency and production.
