Business Support A-Team

by

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Running a successful small business doesn’t quite take that many people. But with a team of dedicated experts on board, your business can grow faster and more efficiently. Through delegating tasks to experts and freeing up your time to focus on what you do best, assembling a team to support you makes good business sense. There are some key players that you will want to have on your business support A-Team.

Personal Assistant

Think of your personal assistant as an extra pair of hands. A personal assistant is an expert in efficiency and can free you up from the endless admin, so you can focus on prioritising what you do best in your business. Asides from just assisting you, they can also build rapport with clients and maintain those key relationships.

Here are some of the things a personal assistant can help you with:

  • Inbox management
  • Diary and calendar organisation
  • Writing/editing documents
  • Client intake and scheduling
  • Setting up systems
  • Customer service
  • Social media management
  • Research into new ideas or services

Bookkeeper

Numbers aren’t really most people’s thing. And even if they are, ensuring financial records are all up to date is a time consuming job. This is where a bookkeeper comes in. An expert at all things financial, a bookkeeper can take away the stress of doing the accounts. They can also provide you with the financial information so you can keep track of how your business is performing.

A bookkeeper can take care of the following jobs:

  • Recording receipts and expenses
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Cash flow management
  • Financial reporting
  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receiveable
  • Payroll
  • Tax returns
  • Liasing with auditors and HMRC

Digital Media Assistant

Any business not making use of social media in 2017 is leaving money on the table. The internet is a great way to reach potential clients and bring awareness to your brand. Having an online presence ( that is active!) is a great way to accelerate the growth of your business. But it can be time consuming and there are a lot of apps and programs to get your head around. This is where a Digital Marketing Assistant can step in and provide their expertise to get your business fully engaged online.

A digital media assistant can help you

  • SEO and website analytic reporting
  • Social media strategy
  • Social media management
  • Blog writing
  • Email marketing and campaigns
  • Customer and industry research
