Outsource your tedious tasks

By January 20, 2022June 22nd, 2023Law Firm Operations, outsourcing

If you’re like most lawyers, you spend too much time on small problems that you shouldn’t be dealing with.


Why not outsource?

A big barrier for many attorneys who want a VA is finding one that they can start using quickly and easily.

If that’s been a barrier for you, then check out FancyHands.

They have US-based virtual assistants ready to start working with you today.

Whether you need a dedicated assistant or you want to delegate the occasional task, they can help.

At the lowest level of service, they’ll handle 3 requests for $17.

I’ve been using the next level, which is 5 tasks for $29/month.

What tasks can you outsource?

The VAs at Fancy Hands can do things like:

  • add events to your calendar
  • research travel plans
  • cancel subscriptions
  • negotiate discounts
  • do general research
  • make reservations
  • get refunds from vendors
  • find out where packages are
  • make small purchases
  • proofread documents
  • handle recurring tasks
  • schedule conference calls

Check out this page on their website to see more requests they handle.

Can FancyHands act on your behalf?

Let’s say you have to call your cable company and cancel a premium feature like Showtime.

So you ask FancyHands to handle it (to avoid you having to waste time waiting on hold “for the next representative”).

But…what if the representative that your FancyHands VA winds up dealing with insists that you give personal authorization “for security reasons.”

No problem.

FancyHands explains that this is a common scenario. So here’s how you can ask them to handle it:

“Please call Time Warner cable and cancel Showtime for me. Here’s my account number, and if you need to patch me in to verify my security details, please call me at [cellphone number].”

Try FancyHands yourself

Now you know that the easiest place to find a VA is FancyHands.

And you can learn more about their service here.

I strongly recommend you check them out so that you can start offloading some of the annoying drudgery you’re probably dealing with yourself.

And after you check them out, shoot me an email and let me know what you think.
