Tasks You Can Hand Off To Your Virtual Assistant

Are you looking for ways to free up your time so that you can focus on growing your online business? Then you may want to consider hiring a virtual assistant. 

A virtual assistant can perform a variety of tasks for your business, such as customer service, social media management, and data entry. By delegating some of the work to a virtual assistant, you can focus on the tasks that are most important to growing your business. 

As an online business owner, you likely have a never-ending to-do list. Keep your business running smoothly by delegating some of these tasks to a virtual assistant.

Here are some ideas of what you can assign to your virtual assistant:

Content Creation 

  • Design graphics, create Reels/TikTok 
  • Schedule social media posts 
  • Interact with followers on your behalf 
  • Turn your weekly emails into blog posts 
  • Create pins for all your blog posts 

Customer service 

  • If you sell products or services online, your VA can handle customer inquiries, refunds, and other requests .
  • Set up a separate inbox for customer service so that your VA can manage that inbox without you needing to worry. Make sure you set up an SOP and create some scripts that can be used for different scenarios.
  • Process orders and dealing with returns or refunds.

Admin / BTS 

  • Inputting leads into your CRM 
  • Transcribing meeting notes 
  • Data entry  
  • Pulling website stats together 
  • Creating reports 
  • Organising your files 
  • Tracking important stats
  • Calendar management
  • Market research
  • Buying client/team gifts
  • Gathering materials for meetings


  • Scheduling emails to your list 
  • Designing graphics for ads 
  • Scheduling your weekly emails
  • Scheduling your blog posts
  • Brainstorming ideas / finding audio for your Instagram posts
  • Setting up your opt-ins
  • Doing all of the prep for bundles
  • Setting up affiliate resources and supporting affiliates
  • Helping you collect testimonials
  • Repurposing content

Membership/Program Support 

  • Membership management and onboarding
  • Community management 
  • Post scheduling 
  • Email reminder scheduling 
  • Uploading content to your membership site 
  • Designing graphics for promoting your membership/program 
  • Managing payments
  • Answering questions about their membership
  • Member data management
  • Creating membership engagement data reports
  • Gathering feedback from members through surveys/polls to help you identify areas for improvement
  • Event planning

Another fun idea, depending on your VA’s Skillset and what type of business you have, you could potentially get them to offer a specific type of support inside your membership. For example, if they focus a lot on funnels and your members could learn a lot from them, you could have them do Q&As on funnels. Bear in mind, that your VA might not charge the same amount that you pay them on a VA retainer – Discuss this and put a contract in place.
