As I have made the shift to Online Business Management, I have received a number of questions about what an OBM does exactly, how to know when it's a good time to hire one, and a variety of others. Today I wanted to share some info to help provide some clarity on how an online business manager can help you and your business.
For many entrepreneurs, hiring a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager is one of the best things they've ever done for their business. Often, it's been the turning point that led to higher sales, greater profits, and a general up leveling of their business and brand.
How can an Online Business Manager help you?
An Online Business Manager picks up your slack.
If we're being honest, I'm sure you could probably name around a dozen tasks you've been meaning to do but haven't.
Maybe you just haven't had the time. Or maybe you just don't know how and you're overwhelmed by the thought of learning.
An OBM can take care of a lot of that for you, which means the tasks that need to happen in order for your business to grow will actually be completed. Your team (or the OBM's team) will be managed and each part will happen efficiently.
What does this mean for you?
Imagine having more brain space for you to focus on your areas of genius and business growth! I know, right?!?
An online business manager will free up your time so you can make more money.
If you're spending all your time on the day-to-day tasks like updating social media, writing marketing content, and managing a team, then what isn't getting done?
You likely aren't creating new products or working with as many clients as you would like. You're losing money!
An OBM and team can take care of the stuff you don't actually have to do so you can focus on what actually MAKES MONEY: Your products and services. The value you provide. That's where your attention needs to be, and an OBM helps you shift your attention back where it belongs.
An OBM covers your blind spots.
Online Business Managers are organized people with an excellent idea of how business works. You're a passionate entrepreneur, but that requires you to wear a lot of hats!
When you're running the whole show, it's easy to forget about important bases that need to get covered. An OBM's role is to make sure all the bases ARE covered, which will keep things running smoothly and prevent a lot of business faux pas and a lot less things falling through the cracks.
Think of the time you will get back because you're not wasting it putting out fires!! Time you could use to be out there increasing your bottom line!
An OBM provides accountability.
You're a highly motivated entrepreneur, but sometimes you just need an extra set of eyes and ears to help you stay on track to do what you know you need to do.
An OBM can provide that boost and keep tabs on the project or situation to make sure you're doing what you said you would. After all, if you tell someone you're going to do something, aren't you a lot more likely to do it? It's many times shocking what can be accomplish when someone's holding you accountable!
An OBM accelerates your growth (and profits).
You're awesome. I know you can do incredible things all by yourself, but an OBM will supercharge your already-incredible business. They will fill in the gaps of your business and take care of the things you can't. A OBM is like Miracle Grow for your business and profits. You've already planted good seeds, your OBM is just there to amplify what you've already created!
