Frequently Asked Questions

Q – What is a Freelance Administrator? 

A – A Freelance Administrator may also be known as a Virtual Assistant, I work with small businesses doing admin tasks that they either don’t know how to do, don’t like doing or don’t want to do.  They outsource their necessary but time-consuming tasks to me, so they are freed up to focus on their core business and do what they do best. 

Q – Why do I need a Freelance Administrator? 

A – What is your aim? What do you want to achieve today? 

  • Increase your efficiency and profitability? 
  • Spend more time talking to your clients/customers? 
  • Improve your productivity? 
  • Sorting out your business admin? 

I’m sure you wouldn’t choose the last option.  You can’t be a master of everything, nor should you try to be.  Spend your time in your areas of strength, admin may not be included in that? 

I am a freelance administrator and help small businesses get organised with their admin, so they can grow their own business.  I am skilled and experienced in many aspects of business support and by outsourcing your admin to me you put yourself back in control of your business, with the freedom to focus on what you do best.
