Virtual Assistant Business
The Key Business Systems You Need.
Do you know the Key Business Systems you need for your business?
Welcome to the third blog post in the Setting up a Virtual Assistant Business series.
This blog post is all about the Key Business Systems you know.
If you haven’t read the first blog post in this series, I invite you to do so before jumping into this one.
As I’ve said before a business is a system.
A poorly designed system leads to poor and inconsistent results.
That’s why it’s important to take the time to design, implement and document the right systems in your business.
Here are the 4 key business systems you need.
- Operations – running the business
- Marketing – making your audience aware
- Sales – getting clients
- Delivery – delivering your services
Feel free to download a copy of the Key-Systems Infograph below, it’s a great reference to keep handy.
Each one of these systems is necessary to have a thriving business.
In fact, these are the same systems your clients should have in their own business.
If not, you can help them design and implement them as a service. (That’s for another blog post…)
Back to the 4 key systems…
Why do you need them?
Systems are how you run your business and you should have a system for everything you do.
A documented checklist or even a full-blown Operations manual that lists the systems you use.
Remember… No systems = No business.
You don’t want to re-create the wheel every time you sign on a new client or take on a new task.
You need to have a system for everything you do in your business.
Too many people don’t take the time to design, implement and document their systems.
Instead, they use hope as a tactic.
They hope they remember the steps the next time they sign a new client…
Hope is not a reliable tactic.
You must spend the time and energy when you’re setting up your Virtual Assistant business to create and implement your systems.
Oh, and document them too!
Systems work together which means they overlap.
All of your key business systems work together to run your business.
