Many businesses are shrinking. Their productivity is getting reduced and entrepreneurs are trying to find alternatives to find a bit of light in the darkness of coronavirus lockdown.

The world indeed wants a solution fast. Time for releasing vague stories and smoky presumptions are over. Businesses are pillar heads of the world economy. If an industry is affected then gradually others have to pay the price.

Since coronavirus is hot on its wheels, adopting robust logical methods could help in sailing through tough situations.

We have done extensive research for weeks and finally we have come up with some impervious methods that could certainly help in protecting a business from the clutches of Coronavirus lockdown situation.

As an entrepreneur you know, time is more valuable than money. For a business, it is indeed necessary to race against time and protect everything so as to win the battle against the odds.

 

How a Virtual Expert can save your business during Coronavirus Lockdown?

 

Here are the ways you can adopt if you intend to protect your business in the coronavirus lockdown.

Our virtual experts behave like virtual employees and without physical presence they can empower your business productivity.

We can save your business by working remotely and process administrative tasks, social media marketing, book-keeping, appointment scheduling and many more. Real estate businessmen, doctors, lawyers, etc around the country have already started contacting us and processing their tasks. In the absence of your employees, we are ready to be at your service.

The best part is that involving our virtual experts means no physical contacts and all tasks are processed remotely. You can hire us for a fixed time schedule and the payment is flexible (pay/hour, pay/project and pay as you go).

You, therefore, do not have to arrange for technology and infrastructure so that your employees work from home. Besides, your expenses are saved and the threat of coronavirus lockdown is also minimized.

As you all know, the world economy is at risk and if you own an e-commerce website then you need to manage it well. You need manpower for product upload, coupon codes, order processing, handling returns etc. Our virtual experts are experts on any website that integrates e-commerce.

No physical office or space required, and our virtual experts thus play the perfect role here in managing inventory, listing products and run the overall operations smoothly from a virtual space where they may not be present physically for you but always virtually.

In case of any product or service related short training, you can leverage platforms such as  Skype so you don’t have to be scared about the future of your business in this coronavirus lockdown.

Virtual Expert Services

Virtual Assistant Services is not a new thing and there are tons of people providing this service virtually. I think when people read the term virtual assistant they immediately think of a glorified secretary or personal assistant. I choose to call it “virtual expert” because honestly as a virtual service provider I work with some of the biggest brands in South Africa and I have developed my own criteria of what a virtual expert description should be.

With the Coronavirus and lockdown of several countries including South Africa, I hope that more businesses realise that your time management systems where staff need to fingerprint their time in and out of buildings is something of the past. It is also evident that small and startup businesses need to outsource most of their day to day operations to virtual experts.
