Email. Love it or hate it, it’s a fact of life when you’re in business.
Back in the early days, email was easy – in fact you probably got excited when you received one and raced to reply to it. Getting into the office on a morning and finding that you had 5 emails was a GOOD thing, even if 2 of them were fake hoax alerts from your best friend from school!
But now, there’s no getting away from it, email is king. Whether it’s newsletters, enquiries, updates and alerts, or even the dreaded spam, email is a big part of our lives and takes up a lot of time.
One way to alleviate the email stress is to allow your Virtual Assistant to help you gain control of your email.
How can a VA help?
GET RID OF THE SPAM
A huge amount of time is spent scanning through your email trying to eliminate the spam. Your VA can do this, while ensuring that nothing important gets deleted by mistake.
SET UP FILTERS AND FOLDERS
If you’re used to leaving everything in your Inbox until it’s dealt with you’ll know what a thankless task it can be to start your day faced with hundreds of emails and not knowing where to start.
By setting up filters and folders your VA can ensure that your email is organised and more controllable.
RESPOND TO ENQUIRIES
Once trained, your VA can make sure that any incoming enquiries are dealt with efficiently and quickly. Whether it’s the answer to a query, or sending out a brochure, you can be sure that your potential clients are being dealt with.
FLAG IMPORTANT EMAILS
Of course, there will be emails that you and only you can deal with. Your VA can help you to get to these first by flagging them and making sure they’r the first things you see when you login. No more scanning through subject lines and hoping you see the important ones first!
Depending on your business, there are many more ways your VA can help with your email; whether it be fulfilling orders for ebooks, organising your diary for meetings and phone calls or just acting as your right hand person when you’re not around.
Imagine coming into the office and realising that you only have to deal with important clients and get on with running your business. No more email backlog, no more searching in vain for an email you haven’t filed away and no more wading through spam to get to the important stuff – that’s email life with a VA in control
