Still confused about the next steps? Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about hiring a digital marketing assistant:
How do I know which is the best way to hire someone?
A website assistant or a digital marketing virtual assistant can have a broad range of definitions, which is why it’s so difficult for many people to pinpoint exactly what they need in a VA. We recommend that you match your specific needs to the skills and experience of the virtual assistant you’re considering hiring. You don’t need them to do everything, but if you match their strengths t your needs, you’ll stand a far greater chance of having the right fit.
Do I have to hire someone full time?
Not at all! The beauty of hiring a virtual assistant is that you can get to work with someone working just part time. You get to decide. At Delegated, we have different tiers of services, which means that you get to customize exactly how much work you hire. You can even start with the lower tiers to “dip your toes into the water,” so to speak. This will give you a preview of the experience while also having a highly qualified virtual assistant performing some of their skilled work for your business.
Don’t I need someone with a physical presence?
These days—and in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic—it’s clear that not every office needs everyone to be there. A virtual assistant is a viable alternative. That’s especially true for someone like a digital marketing assistant, who only needs Internet access to help you with your marketing efforts.
What about inbound marketing?
Digital marketing experts are competent with both inbound and outbound marketing. But make sure that when you do hire a virtual assistant, that you hire them for the skills they do possess, and not the skills that you hope they’ll learn on the job. If you need a lot of inbound marketing skills, make that part of your hiring criteria.
