Now and then, business owners begin to consider hiring Virtual Assistants to undertake a part of work, which is always hampering them to concentrate on the core of their business. Resorting to virtual assistants might be a good idea and you shouldn’t be afraid of counting on someone you haven’t met in person. Many businesses do it nowadays.
Virtual assistants are specialists with good knowledge and qualification. They usually know what you need as the majority of them are entrepreneurs. So they know how to do business with mutual benefit.
There are a lot of Spanish speaking virtual assistants available and ready to work for reasonable fees. It is true that looking for one, you will eventually find one. However, how much time it requires? What are the most common problems when it comes to Spanish speaking virtual assistants?
The problems that normally come across with Spanish speaking virtual assistant are:
- Bad qualification. Unfortunately, it was often the case when I tried to find one. The reason for that might consist in the high unemployment rate in Spanish speaking countries, which result in many individuals opting for online work. It is a fantastic thing about internet that people can overcome local conditions; however, it doesn’t contribute to searching qualified specialists.
- Spanish dialects. The general notion of the Spanish language is usually referred to Castilian dialect, the most commonly accepted dialect of Spanish. They doesn’t speak equally in Spain and in Latin America, it is the most important thing for you to understand. I had a nerve-racking experience hiring a Castilian speaking VA for my customers from Latin America. You see, my VA was not willing to adjust to customers’ Spanish! He thought he was right saying this or that way.
- Cultural issue. When different cultures are engaged in cooperation, there’ll be some cases of misunderstanding. Understanding and, what is more important, accepting these differences is a key to working with Spanish speaking VA. It is instrumental, in this respect, to set fourth all requirements, obligations and bonuses associated with work from the very beginning.
Overall, I had a hard time looking a Spanish speaking virtual assistant that suits me perfectly. Some of them failed to meet my requirements, so I have been looking for a long while without stopping. Eventually, I’ve found the one that is a perfect match for my business. I have a lot of Spanish speaking customers and finally they are satisfied with me.
