“How do I reduce my business’ admin?” is a common question from businesses with more calls, emails, and customer requests than they can shake a stick at.

For those who want to spend more time running their business than drowning in admin, the simple solution is a virtual assistant.

But what exactly is a virtual assistant, what do they do, and how can you hire one?

Find out the answers to all these questions below and discover how Cymphony’s virtual receptionist service can help your business.

What do virtual assistants do?

A virtual assistant is essentially a remote receptionist who provides customer support services for businesses, and takes care of day-to-day admin.

They do things like answering and forwarding phone calls, responding to emails and social media queries, managing calendars, and booking appointments.

The best virtual receptionists are also expertly trained to feel and sound like an extension of your brand. So both your clients and your reputation will be in good hands.
