If you already run a business whose transactions mostly occur on Amazon, then you’re already familiar with the platform. The problem isn’t familiarity. The problem is that there may be aspects to Amazon’s services that get in the way of you being more productive. We don’t want that.
The easy solution? A virtual assistant. A virtual assistant is someone who works remotely while serving the capacities of a full time or part time assistant for your business. By introducing an assistant into your business pipeline, you’ll take some of the pressure off of yourself and free your own time to focus on the bigger picture.
Here are some of the key areas in which an Amazon virtual assistant can help:
- Dealing with suppliers. One of the major frustrations of anyone who sells on Amazon is making sure that the suppliers have everything ready to go. And when there are problems on this end, It can eat up a tremendous amount of your time. Using a virtual assistant with experience in using Amazon will help you contact suppliers without it eating up a major chunk of your day.
- Dealing with customers. The customer-facing aspect of Amazon is a strange thing. Having a lot of customers means that your business is thriving, which is a good thing. But having a lot of customers also means that you have a lot of issues to deal with, which isn’t always fun. You can outsource customer-facing tasks and communication to an Amazon virtual assistant to make sure that you’re still free to spend your day how you want.
- Listings management. Your listing on your Amazon feels like your lifeblood for a reason—it’s that important to your business. An assistant can help track your product listings and alert you when something needs fixing. If you made searching through your own listings and checking to see how you stack up against the competition a regular part of your day, you can outsource that without ignoring these listings.
- Optimization. When you create something on Amazon, you need to make sure that the listing is not only clear and cohesive, but optimized to Amazon’s standards. An experienced Amazon assistant can help you double-check everything you’ve done, or even take the reins of your optimization.
- Social media. Managing your social media presence can be a job in and of itself, responding to customers and creating new postings. Automating these tasks will help give your company the same amount of reach without relying on your own hard work to make it happen.
