You may have heard that the Philippines is one of the best countries to outsource your administrative tasks to.
Why the Philippines, of all countries? Not only is it extremely inexpensive, but the quality of the work from Filipinos is second to none.
In this video, filmed at the Platinum Mastermind in Kota Kina Balu, Malaysia, Daven Michaels does a live cross to his virtual assistant in the Philippines. She talks about the different duties she handles for Daven and you’ll find out why the Philippines is the perfect country to outsource your admin tasks to.
WHAT A FILIPINO CAN DO
Daven’s virtual assistant handles all kinds of tasks in his business. She makes follow up phone calls, leaves voice mail messages, sets up his appointments, manages his calendar, sends him reminders and manages his email inbox.
She also does sales, billing, refunds, affiliate management, social media, data entry and transcription.
Finding Filipinos who can do all of these jobs is not hard at all. Most Filipinos speak perfect English and are familiar with many online business skills.
If you’re worried about time zone differences, don’t be. 65% of Daven Michaels’ clients are in the United States, so 65% of his Filipino employees start work at midnight and work until the morning.
WHY THE PHILIPPINES IS SO AFFORDABLE
It’s amazingly affordable to hire in the Philippines. For just $400 a month, you can get highly educated workers with college degrees who speak English perfectly. They will complete your jobs to a high standard with a great attitude.
If that sounds too good to be true, here’s why.
There is a challenge to find good work in the Philippines. A lot of local jobs require them to leave family for 6 months to go to another island. Then, they have to work 12 hour days for 6 to 7 days a week.
Filipinos are incredibly grateful to have a steady job that they can work for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, from the comfort of their home and without having to leave their family.
Think about it this way. You could spend $4,000 a month hiring one person from the United States, and giving them 10 responsibilities for 8 hours a day. Or, you can spend the same money hiring 10 people from the Philippines and each giving them one responsibility for 8 hours a day.
You’ll get better quality work and be able to reduce your overheads. Then you’ll also have the freedom to pass on the savings in the form of more competitive prices, or keep those savings and increase your profit margins.
