Virtual Staff for Data Entry

One of the simplest ways to use a Virtual Assistant is for data entry. Our experience is that data entry means many things to many businesses. But the characteristics of data entry are always the same:

  • It’s ongoing work
  • The work is repetitive - meaning once you have trained your staff, they will be able to keep doing it
  • The skills required are simple and basic - sometimes it’s as easy as copy/pasting from one website page to another
  • The work is not client-facing
  • It’s easy to monitor performance

It’s because of these 5 characteristics that data entry is easy to train a staff member that is not working in your office.
