Virtual assistance was made official in 1997 and in countries such as the United States it is normal to hire a virtual assistant to deal with contracting a moving agency for example, or to delegate administrative work. In other countries, like El Salvador, not only are professionals reticent, but the secretaries themselves find it difficult to transition from the “real” office to the “virtual” one. It’s a matter of mindset, and like languages, it takes time.
The digital entrepreneur is already used to carrying out their business on the Internet, have a dynamic site, one or more blogs, carries out email marketing activities, knows perfectly the latest technological and IT tools, and are already ready for change because they’re part of the change!
This type of professional also knows virtual assistance and it is therefore familiar with outsourcing and is willing to hire a virtual assistant.
