Change is inevitable. With the rapid changes and advancements in technology, it’s becoming harder for companies to compete and stay relevant. Not to mention it’s also getting harder to meet the changing demands of their customers.

That’s where AI-trained executive assistants come into play. By hiring individuals who have expertise in AI and machine learning, business owners can leverage their skills to gain a competitive advantage in various aspects of their business operations. From marketing to customer service, AI can help businesses streamline their processes and make better decisions based on data-driven insights.

So, what are the benefits of AI tools? And what role your virtual assistant will play in all of this? What skills and qualifications should you be looking for when hiring for these positions?

I’ll get to all of that in this article. So, let’s get started. 

More content production

Staying active on social media can be draining. Not to mention you also have to have an email list that you have to nurture. That means churning regular content. By hiring a virtual assistant trained in AI, you can produce more online content that you can use across different social media channels.

AI-powered tools use natural language processing, machine learning, and other advanced technologies to produce high-quality and relevant content. So all your virtual assistant needs to do is edit and optimize the content based on your business needs. 

With your virtual assistant and AI tools creating content for you on a consistent basis, your business can respond to changes in the market more rapidly and improve your online visibility, attracting more customers and building a strong brand reputation.

Reduce Costs

In the online marketing industry, businesses can reduce costs by automating tasks, personalizing content, optimizing ads, and detecting fraud, among other benefits. By hiring virtual assistants trained in AI, you can reduce labor costs because what took hours and several people to create can now be done quickly and efficiently in fewer labor hours.

More advanced technology

AI algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data, make predictions with a higher degree of accuracy, and identify new opportunities. By hiring a VA who is skilled in AI, you can take advantage of these advanced technologies and give your business a competitive advantage.

For example, with AI-powered tools such as chatbots, businesses can provide a customer support experience that doesn’t feel like they’re talking to a robot. This leads to a more personalized experience which will then result in customer satisfaction and loyalty.

More opportunities

AI is also opening up new doors for entrepreneurs. Thanks to the rise of ChatGPT, business owners have become more creative in coming up with new business ideas or optimizing their current businesses to make more sales.

For example, more book publishers are creating adult coloring books using AI. As AI continues to improve, more business opportunities will open up, providing new avenues for growth and innovation.

What this means to your business

AI can’t run on itself. At least not yet. That’s where hiring AI-trained VAs come into the picture. Although a lot of AI tools are very user-friendly, you still need to hire someone skilled in AI to manage these tools.

Qualifications to look for when hiring a VA

I share tips here when hiring a VA but I want to give emphasis on the following qualities when hiring someone who will man your AI tools.

1. Enthusiasm to learn

They don’t have to be an expert. Most AI tools are very user-friendly. But there is still some learning to do especially when you’re working with Natural Language Processing like ChatGPT. Don’t hire VAs who has an “I already know that” attitude.

2. They care about your business

Maybe they care more about your business than you do. I know, it sounds too good to be true. But believe me, there is a breed of virtual assistants out there who cares. Jeff calls this, “they give a damn.” And I completely agree.

3. Have an attitude of excellence

They work hard and are good at what they do. They give their best because that’s their attitude towards work. They don’t operate on the mindset of giving their bare minimum because they will get paid anyway. No. Hire a VA who will give excellent performance because that’s their work ethic.

Over to You

If your business is going to compete in an already competitive market, you need to stand out. And your virtual assistant is your secret weapon. The question is, where do you find this rare breed of VAs?
