What a VA can do: Turn a pile of business cards into a database

This month we’re talking about Database Management and if there’s one headache we hear all about from our clients it’s Data Entry.  Whether you are a sole trader or run your own SME, every business thrives on good quality information which you can use to analyse and communicate with your customers and prospects.

Many of us are good at picking up business cards from people we meet at networking meetings, exhibitions etc but do we actually ever do anything with them or are they still languishing in our top drawer, waiting to be acted upon?  There’s a mine of useful information – names, addresses and contact details which you could be putting to good use but it can be hard to get around to the time consuming task or entering all that data into a useable format.

A Virtual Assistant (VA) can make all the difference and in just a matter of hours turn that pile of business cards and brochures into a simple and effective database such as an orderly Excel Spreadsheet.  Our clients simply pop their bundle of cards in the post to us. 

Our highly experienced VAs then work through the data entry quickly and efficiently, capturing all the relevant information and them compiling any report you require such as contacts by region or business type.  They can turn data into information and enable you to get back to what you do best – growing your business.

Managing databases is just one of the services we provide.  From will writers to window cleaners, financial consultants to fashion designers, all of our clients recognise the value of outsourcing, passing onto others tasks that either they lack skills in, or tasks that drain their valuable time. 

Our team of highly experienced VAs take on the tasks you don’t have time to do, don’t have the skills to do or simply don’t want to do. 

Please get in touch on 01483 332220 or email us at office@getaheadva.com.  We pride ourselves on being the staff you don’t see, but the difference you do.
