It’s Not Too Late To Add A VA To Your Christmas List

It’s December, which means Christmas is just around the corner. Not sure about you, but our decorations have been up for about a month already, and we’ve already eaten our body weights in mince pies! But we know a lot of business owners dread the festive period. Not because they’re all finches who hate Christmas, but because there’s an awful lot of admin involved in the holidays, and it’s too much to cope with on top of the usual admin load. If that sounds like you, why not give yourself the gift of a VA this year? there are just a few things we could help you with.

Christmas Cards

Everyone loves getting a Christmas card. It makes us feel special! But not everyone likes writing them, especially when you have to do them for every client, supplier and employee in your business, It’s time-consuming, dull, and it gives you a hand cramp. why not let us take on the task of festive greetings and let you focus on more important things?

Email Management

You’re probably really keen to wrap up for Christmas (pun intended) and start enjoying the time off. But some of your clients might not be.. Businesses are expected to be ‘on’ 24/7 now, which means being able to acknowledge urgent emails even during the holidays. Outsourcing your email management means we can monitor your inbox over the break, sending acknowledgements if needed and working on anything that needs ‘your attention when you return.

Chasing Outstanding Payments

Since Christmas is a short month with a lot going on, it’s easy for customers to forget to pay you on time. And the last thing you want is a big lol dent in your cash flow at Christmas time. A VA can chase all of your outstanding invoices for you, making sure your accounts are closed and up to date just in time for the holidays.

Review Your Suppliers

The new year is the perfect time to take a look at your cash flow and work out where you can trim costs and maximise profit. with the economy and cost of living the way it is right now, this step is more important than ever before. A good VA can collect data from all of your different systems and suppliers, providing you with a breakdown of what you’re spending where, and if there are any more cost-effective options available. We do all of the legwork so that you just have to make a final decision.

Loose Ends

VAs are very good with knots. Unpicking them when you get in a mess, and tying all the Ends up neatly ready for the end of the year. This year, don’t panic about half-finished projects. Get a VA to help you sort them all out and get your business ready for the festive shutdown.

Festive Promotions

Who doesn’t love a giveaway? or a good sale? Christmas is a key time for promotions for many businesses, but the short month means that dealing with them on top of your normal admin can feel impossible: A VA can take over managing your festive promotions and sales, so you know everything is taken care of.

Get You Home For Christmas

Or wherever you want to be really. A good VA doesn’t just organise your business life – they help you manage your personal life as well – especially important at this time of year when business and personal engagements tend to overlap. So, you can stop worrying that you’ve forgotten something or double-booked yourself. Instead, you can just relax and enjoy the festivities.

If you’re still not convinced that a VA could be the perfect gift for your business, then you might be the most organised person on earth! But you should still get in touch, because you never know when you might need a helping hand.

And from all of us at Your Admin Hub, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2024!
