Executive Assistants – Your Secret Weapon

Executive Assistants - Your Secret Weapon

Not just for fat cats

Executive assistants are no longer an extravagance only Fortune 500 companies can afford.

Advances in technology and remote work have made executive assistants an affordable solution accessible to businesses of any size.

Far from being a luxury reserved for the elite, these skilled professionals bring efficiency and expertise to the table, revolutionizing the way any organization operates. 

The productivity multiplier

Delegating work doesn’t mean shirking responsibility.

It’s a strategic way to optimize your productivity.

Imagine an expert handling communications, scheduling, documentation, and other administrative tasks that once impeded your workflow.

All the minutiae of your day-to-day, gone. Leaving you free to focus on your core business tasks.

This is the power that an executive assistant brings to the table.

Affordable assistance

But you’re probably thinking, what about cost?

Average US salaries for an executive assistant range from $69k all the way to $92k for a senior position.

Well…what if they were cheaper? Like, 70% cheaper?

By choosing to hire in a non-Western country such as the Philippines, you can slash the costs of an EA, whilst still ensuring a fully skilled and highly trained addition to your team.

With a 70% cost saving, suddenly an executive assistant becomes too much of an opportunity to ignore.

Sharing the workload

While basic scheduling and appointment booking are certainly EA strengths, today’s assistants do far more than just wrangle calendars. 

Smart executives utilize their EA to provide high-level support with communication, research, documentation, relationship management, and specialized projects that align with their skills.

To delegate effectively, one must first identify the right tasks to hand over. Anything that is repetitive but requires a human touch is ideal for EAs.

When you strategically delegate tasks that they can not only handle but excel at, you maximize the impact of an EA, and free yourself up for big-picture thinking.

The meaning of remote has changed

With globalization comes a shrinking world.

Your EA no longer needs to be in the same office, the same country, or even the same continent.

Advances in technology mean that global communication is easier than ever.

No more painfully checking your calendar or scheduling lengthy conference calls to explain processes either.

With apps like Loom and Calendly, scheduling and communication are a breeze, regardless of time zone.

The promised land of productivity

The end result of all this? More time for you to focus on what matters.

Whether it’s uninterrupted deep work, designing new processes, or securing new clients, you are free to do whatever you need to do to grow your business. 

With affordable EAs doing the heavy lifting, the possibilities are endless.
