Why you should hire a Virtual Assistant for Data Entry.

Data entry is super important for so many businesses. But it's also time consuming and it's definitely slowing you down. This is why it's a perfect task to delegate to someone... like a virtual assistant!


Any virtual assistant will be well versed with a keyboard, with speed and accuracy being at the top of their skills. Let's discuss some reasons that hiring a VA for your data entry work is in your best interest.


save more time

1) Time Savings:

The biggest, and most obvious, reason you should hire a virtual assistant for data entry is to save time. Hiring someone to take care of tedious tasks will always give you more time to focus on bigger picture tasks. By hiring a VA for data entry, you are going to be rewarded with extra hours in every day to grow your business, or maybe even take some time for yourself. Wouldn't that be something?!



2) Increased Efficiency & Accuracy:

Virtual assistants spend A LOT of time behind a keyboard. This is likely to mean that they are faster and more accurate than you are when it comes to typing. If you are someone who types with one finger or is still looking at the keyboard and relying on autocorrect, then hiring a VA for your data entry is definitely the right choice.



save money in your business

3) Financial Savings!!

I know, you're probably thinking "But how can I save money if I'm paying someone to do the work?" And while you will have to pay a virtual assistant, you will be able to save money by avoiding mistakes and rework. When data entry mistakes are made, it can be very costly to the business, and then you have to go back in and fix them. It takes time to fix errors, and we all know that time is money. Also, most VAs work on an 'as-needed' basis, meaning you won't have to hire a full time employee to do the work. Hiring someone for only the amount of time you need them will definitely save you some big bucks!


4) Flexibility & Scalability:

As I mentioned above, virtual assistants are mostly employed on an 'as-needed' basis. This means that as your workload increases or decreases, your VA can adjust to that. Not having a full time person that you need to find work for allows you to easily handle the natural eb and flow of your business. If your business is growing exponentially and your VA can't take on all of the work, you can always hire another VA for specific tasks or single project/short term work. There is so much room for flexibility and scalability when you work with a VA.

There are many data entry related tasks that are ongoing that you can delegate to a virtual assistant such as online database entry, transcription, basic bookkeeping, or even CRM software management. Sometimes all you need is a single project like migrating data from one software to another or formatting documents. These are all data entry related projects you can easily and confidently pass off to a VA. And I suggest you do just that. Giving yourself more time is easily one of the best things you can do for you and your business.
