Filipino virtual assistants, or as we like to call them, Online Filipino Specialists, can do a variety of things; and they can do it well.
Your OFS is your employee, and just like an in-house employee, your clients know that they represent you and your business.
So, can OFSs meet with clients? Yes. Yes, they can.
For an OFS to be ready to talk to your clients on your behalf, you first have to trust them.
Trust that they would represent you and your business as you would. How do you do this? You do this by training them well, not necessarily teaching them how to talk to people, but letting them get to know your business and your clients. Let them know the how, what, and whys of your business.
You might worry that they’ll steal your idea or create their own business because they now know how yours works, but trust me, Filipinos are not like that.
Filipinos value their job, and your trust in them would make them want to be better for you.
Take, for example, Ruben Kanya has given his OFSs his confidence for them to talk to his clients, and he’s happy about it.
If you want to train your OFSs and give them more responsibility, that would be a win-win for both of you. I am cooking something that could help — be on the lookout for training you can give your VAs I am putting together!
This practical advice is just one of many we have on our blog. Head on to our outsourcing education page to catch the whole series.
