It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but its also one of the most stressful. The extra personal, professional and social workload around the Christmas season can often lead to overwhelm. Could getting virtual assistant services be the best gift you could give yourself this year?
Which virtual assistant services can help over the Christmas period?
1. Organising the Christmas party
Why not task your virtual assistant with organising your office Christmas party? Give them a brief, a budget and sit back and enjoy the festivities along with your colleagues this year without lifting a finger. Cheers!
2. Sending greetings and gifts to your valued customers and suppliers
It’s customary to send a festive ‘thank-you’ to your most valued business partners and clients at this time of year. Sourcing and arranging these is the perfect job for a VA. And if they get to include themselves in the recipient list, all the better!
3. Running a festive marketing campaign
Special occasions like Christmas are a perfect opportunity to build brand interactions and impact your customers’ perception of you. Whether it’s a Christmas offer, ads, competitions or other innovative ideas, the value of a good Christmas marketing campaign is relevant across all industries. Your virtual assistant will be happy to help execute your campaign.
4. Manage your fuller-than-usual diary
Diary management is tricky at the best of times but add in all the additional social occasions around the Christmas season and it can become chaos. Delegate to someone adept at diary management who can ensure you don’t have conflicting arrangements and provide you with a detailed, accurate itinerary will be invaluable.
5. Field your calls and emails while you’re taking a relaxing Christmas break
Taking time out is imperative to productivity and wellbeing. If you’re planning on a well-deserved break over the Christmas period, how much easier would it be to rest with the peace of mind that your calls and emails are being professionally managed?
6. Take care of your (online) Christmas shopping
Like it or loathe it, Christmas shopping is time-consuming. Get orders, deliveries and even wrapping taken care of without a fuss by your very own virtual Christmas elf.
7. Organise your Christmas lunch
Put your orders in and your virtual assistant can do your online shop, arrange caterers or restaurant bookings for you and your loved ones. They draw the line at doing the washing up though.
8. Sending out a Christmas newsletter
Christmas is a time to keep your employees, colleagues and customers up to date with your development and plans. A festive newsletter can be just the vehicle to deliver this info, but who has time? Your VA, that’s who.
9. Festive social media management
The importance of using social media to interact with clients and promote your brand is unquestionable. Your VA can implement all your festive social media marketing strategies on your behalf.
10. Get ahead for 2022
The end of the year provides an opportunity to take stock, evaluate and plan for the year ahead.
