100 Tasks to Delegate to Virtual Staff to Cultivate Your Business

If you’ve ever considered hiring virtual staff for your business but don’t know what tasks to delegate to them, we’ve compiled the top 100 ways you can utilize a Virtual Assistant.

In order to effectively use virtual assistants to grow your business, you need to hire for the role, not the task. Something that I say all the time.

That means building a team. A team that will work together to achieve what you’re aiming for as a business owner.

It’s with this in mind that I decided to put together this list of tasks that you can outsource to virtual staff to grow your business more effectively. You’ll see that I’ve broken it down into the following roles:

  • Email & Schedule Management
  • Non-profit Staffing
  • Social Media & Blogging
  • Email Marketing
  • Content Writer
  • SEO / Web Marketing
  • Graphic / Web Designing
  • Web Developing

It’s important to acknowledge and appreciate that no one person can handle all of these different roles. It’s about using what you’ve got at your arsenal, to get what you want out of your team building and outsourcing.
