There are several benefits to hiring a virtual assistant. These benefits include significantly reducing your labour costs, being able to get help 24/7, the ability to outsource tasks to a professional, access to a wide set of skills that you and/or your teammates might not possess, the option of getting help with a project the second you need it, and more.
