The answer to this question may well surprise you. I can't think of any reason that a successful business executive would not benefit from having a virtual assistant. They take care of the any daily needs from answering and fielding phone calls and filtering the needed information to you. They answer the mundane questions that are asked and direct as much or as little of the inquiries to you or whomever you dictate. They become the front line of your company.
There is no second chance to make a first impression and nothing impresses a perspective or current customer or business more or faster than having a professional office assistant. The beauty here is that only you will know that the person is a virtual assistant at some other location and not someone sitting at the desk right outside your office door. Thus the illusion is created that you are successful and have your own personal assistant on staff.
Since it is rare these days to find a client, business or customer actually walking into the office when they can so easily contact you and your company via everything from smart phone to Internet email it only makes good business sense for companies to find and use a good virtual assistant service. It cuts down on the real estate needed to house the office and the people that do that job and it cuts down on the expenses associated with having a full time employee dedicated to what is often a part time need. And even better than that is that it makes the perception of the professionalism of your company seem much higher in the eyes of those contacting you.
A case in point would be trying to contact the head of a company like General Motors. When you place the call it isn't routed to his desk where he answers, General Motors Company President here, how can I help you?
Rather the call is answered by someone else whop will help you. That would be his assistant. Most people expect that when they call a business they will be dealing with a subordinate or several different people before they get to the person in charge. It is the way things are done and the perception is that if you have an assistant, whether it is actual or virtual, that you are a successful entity in the business world.
So the short answer to the above question is yes. If you are looking to make the best impression that you can and you are looking to make your business a successful one, then you definitely will benefit from having an assistant. If you are looking to save money, look professional and take yourself to the next level, looking into virtual assistant services is less of a want and more a decided need.
Competition is rough and the best way to stay on top is to look the part and play the game better than your competition. This will steer you in tat direction and save you money in the long run.
