At a Glance: Virtual Assistant

A virtual assistant (VA) provides administrative or technical professional services. Because they work remotely (or virtually), they could be located anywhere in the world whether it’s the same city as you or another country across the globe. They can schedule appointments and meetings, plan events, make travel arrangements, organize your inbox, proofread business documents, conduct research, prep reports, invoice clients, or update databases. They can also create and update social network profiles. If you have an e-commerce business, they could update product descriptions for your website.

If you’re looking for ways to free up your time and be more efficient, a virtual assistant can help you tackle a host of sales, email, administrative, and other types of tasks. Talented virtual assistants on Upwork have excellent communication skills and in-depth knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint), Google Docs, and other programs. A VA can help you save time and be more efficient and organized.
