Whether your business is new, old, or somewhere in-between, a Virtual Professional will give you the edge you need to stay competitive at a fraction of the cost of hiring your own staff.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, October 03, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Real Estate market is on the rise, and sales agents are as busy as ever. While most agents are connected or associated with a larger brokerage firm, each is in fact a commissioned sub-contracted business. And like any other business they are responsible for their own marketing, staffing, scheduling, expenses, and everything else it takes to run a successful business today. While it's true that some agents are very successful at building a team and business, most find it a struggle to do it all.
One option is to hire staff to handle what you don't know how to do, or simply don't have the time to do. But this option can get expensive, especially if you try to hire experienced people. On top of that you probably don't need someone full time. Of course you could always pay a little less and train them yourself, but what if you don't know how, or even what to do yourself? Very few of us are experts at everything. In fact, many agents have very little true business experience, but they have great sales and people skills.
So what's the answer? For many, a Virtual Professional Assistant Service is a great way to solve their staffing shortage. If you've never heard of Virtual Assistants, or Virtual Pro, you're not alone. Just think of it as outsourcing for the little guy.
Hiring a full-time employee at $20 per hour could cost up to $76,000 per year. In comparison, a Virtual Pro hired at $35 per hour would only cost you around $16,000 per year. That's a 78% savings, to say nothing of the time you'll save not managing an employee.
The big trend today is industry specific Virtual Professionals. To be specific, there are Virtual Pro companies that only work with Real Estate agents. As a case study let's look at one such company, BizEBee Virtual Assistants, LLC:
BizEBee is based in Virginia, and staffed with professionals from around the country. And when I say professionals, I mean experienced Real Estate, Business Management, Marketing, and Web experts. Along with their years of experience, each BizEBee Virtual Pro is a certified business coach.
I know what you're thinking. I'm not comfortable doing everything through email or text, and I hate being passed around to someone new every time I call. At BizEBee they understand this, which is why each sales agent is paired with their own certified business coach. You can talk directly with them whenever you need, for as long as you need. After a free business consultation, BizEBee will then connect you with your Virtual Pro who will help you develop an individualized business plan around your specific needs. From there they will work with you directly to implement your plan. For some it might be help with setting up a database management system, for others, improving your social media and SEO presence is a priority. Does your business need to be organized? A Virtual Pro can help. Perhaps you're a new agent and need a whole new business brand created, including a logo, website, and marketing plan.
Whether your business is new, old, or somewhere in-between, a Virtual Professional will give you the edge you need to stay competitive at a fraction of the cost of hiring your own staff. This means you can spend more time doing what you do best, sell homes. Visit http://bizebeerealestate.com
