How To Communicate With Your Virtual Assistant (VA)

You have a Virtual Assistant and not sure how you should communicate with him/her.  They are not located in your office and you need to go over a project that you need to get done by the end of the week. A Virtual Assistant is exactly that virtual.  Regardless, of your location you can call your VA to set up a meeting via phone, Skype, or email.  Once you make contact and decide how you need to talk to your VA you have accomplish your tasks.  Keep in mind that you do not have to have an Assistant with you at all times.

If you have a good VA they will always have what they need to meet with you on a moments notice (keep in mind you are not the only Client that your VA may have).  You should be able to make contact with your VA via phone or text for immediate response.  They should be able to respond back to you within a few minutes.  If they are with a Client you will get a message what time they will be available and if not they should be able to call you within 15-30 minutes.  You MUST be realistic that a VA is not a magician, respond in a snap of a finger, or poof and appear.  They are there to help you, but not to be your maid or to be abused.  Virtual Assistants can be very helpful and a life-saver.
