One of the more satisfying possibilities for working at home is becoming a virtual assistant. While there is no single definition of what a “virtual assistant” is, most people think of it as doing general office work, which might include:
- Making phone calls or writing emails on a company’s behalf (or for an individual within a company), including scheduling appointments.
- Data entry, anything from tracking sales calls to entering figures in a database.
- Writing & editing basic marketing materials or letters.
- Internet researching
- Blog management
- Social media management
- Graphic design
- Technical support
Your virtual assistant journey might include any or all of those tasks, depending on your skills and the needs of potential clients. You undoubtedly will be asked to do other things specific to whatever industry your clients are in.
