What a Virtual Assistant Does
Virtual assistants are in charge of accomplishing a lot in the way of a CEO or other office administrator’s job. Typical tasks they perform include scheduling appointments, making phone calls, finalizing travel plans, and managing your company’s email accounts.

Like any other assistant, they are often your company’s first point of contact with clients and partners. They are the first to read emails and often the one to reply. Your virtual assistant handles your inbound calls and places your outbound calls. They manage the face of your company to the rest of the world.
Advantages to Virtual Assistance
One of the main advantages of hiring a virtual assistant is you pay them on a contract basis. They can be freelance, so you only hire them for the services you require. This makes virtual assistance extremely prominent among small businesses and startups where they may only need so much for daily operations. Having a virtual office helps them keep their costs down while increasing the number of their daily operations that sees the Internet.
Some of the savings you see with a virtual assistant come from not having to provide a desk. In fact, you do not supply office space. It is a means of keeping costs, operations, and use of space low among your company. Perhaps you are already a remote company. In this case, a virtual assistant takes advantage of the path you are already on and works alongside you with their administrative help.
