Outsourced Tasks

People are always asking me what I have my virtual assistants do. On average I request about 150 tasks per month, some by phone and some by email. Whether you are using FancyHands or Zirtual, here’s some ideas of the things you can outsource:

- Parse emails for heads of coworking spaces from attached spreadsheet
- Contact plumbers to get quotes for correcting this violation
- Find an automated method for organizing photos on dropbox
