What do you do when you don’t have your own human resource department, your business operates online, and you want to hire people to help you with the venture’s other aspect? You go to virtual staffing providers!
Here are the top virtual services you can get from virtual staffing providers:
1- Virtual staffing Providers take care of your Content writing
Probably, the most lucrative and sustainable form of marketing, especially in the digital times, content writing has become the backbone of the entire media industry.
For years, publishers have been using content to lure in readers, in order to attract advertisers, who are after those eyeballs.
However, the content must be good, in order to pique the visitors’ fancy, making him stay longer on the website, which means more money for the advertisers, owing to the length of exposure their ad receives.
With Google, the world’s biggest English search engine, now ranking websites based on the usefulness and uniqueness of the content they promote, more and more companies have made content marketing a priority in their marketing strategy, taking in a huge chunk in the marketing budget pie.
With this, content writers have become a commodity, constantly being hunted to produce engaging and informative works of art, as the public’s insatiable thirst for content reaches a new high.
The question remains how and where to find the best content writers.
This gap is being filled by virtual staffing companies, catering to companies that don’t want to spend time and resources headhunting on their own.
Regardless of the industry or niche, the best content writers have one trait in common: killer delivery.
Opening their articles with the best quotes, statistics or news that capture the readers instantaneously, the companies who can find this type of content writers often lead them to a long term professional relationship, as the writing tone eventually gets so embedded in the content, whether in the company blog or website copy, that hiring a new one might alienate readers.
This happens all the time, and lessons have been learned.
2- Secretarial services are also a common virtual staffing service
While most secretaries would react differently when someone gives their job the ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ designation, none could be further from the truth.
From taking and managing calls, finding the cheapest flight and hotel, to replying to sensitive emails on their boss’ behalf, secretaries have blurred the boundaries of what a ‘secretary’ does.
They say the way to getting a company’s attention is through its secretaries. This has some factual basis to it.
For one thing, all the top people in a company almost always have a secretary. You get to the secretary and you get to the right people.
For another, not only the big bosses of a company have secretaries, the company itself, too, has and needs one.
Acting as the gatekeeper of information of all kinds, secretaries are able to receive, analyze and delegate information to their rightful destinations.
Simply, without a secretary and her prodigious skills, the company will suffer.
In today’s internet-heavy way of doing business, virtual secretaries have become the go-to secretaries of those who wants a flexible, cost-efficient way of staying in the loop of the business’ internal and external operations.
3- Virtual staffing services offer administrative assistance
As long as businesses exist, administrative tasks will always be there.
For the casual observer, this has always been an integral part of any organization since the beginning of time.
However, for the modern startup entrepreneurs and business owners, they consider administrative tasks as nuisances, a remnant of the traditional ways of doing business, and most of all, an additional cost to their already limited resources.
Of course, they find out immediately they cannot totally abandon administrative tasks, owing to the trouble of doing them themselves.
Focus and time are needed for administrative tasks, and they’d rather spend it on improving their products and services.
And so, the demand for someone who specializes in administrative tasks is on the constant rise, as the rebounding economy gives birth to the rising number of startups and SMEs.
Good luck on your search.
