OBM vs VA
YOU’VE MASTERED THE HUSTLE.
BUT CONTINUED GROWTH REQUIRES SPACE TO PLAN YOUR NEXT MOVE.
WHAT WILL YOUR NEXT MOVE BE?
WHO WILL YOU HIRE?
As businesses are expanding, and online communication is becoming more and more effective, there are more opportunities for people to telecommute than ever before.
It is becoming apparent for small business owners that they can hire fantastic independent contractors to complete important tasks for their company, without ever needing them to come into the office, or work as a full-time employee.
Two career paths that are currently taking off are Virtual Assistants (VA) and Online Business Managers (OBM). While these two positions have many similarities, they also have key differences that distinctly set them apart.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VA’S AND OBM’S?
Here are some of the main differences between VA’s and OBM’s.
Online Business Manager- An OBM is a highly specialized worker that aids in the administrative duties of a company. This person helps manage and delegate tasks among employees, is proficient at running online marketing campaigns, is proactive in taking control of ways to help the business grow and improve, and personally takes a stake in the business as if it is their own. OBM’s are typically excellent at multitasking, and they are great at overseeing others to assure team success. These workers are not necessarily doing things themselves, but they are constantly assuring that tasks and responsibilities are being completed at the highest possible level. It is best to see an OBM as a highly skilled, and qualified person that is a partner in making your business as successful as possible.
Virtual Assistant- A VA is someone that is usually hired to complete tasks that a business owner is not able to do themselves because of time constraints, resources, or other reasons. The tasks a VA can be hired to do are usually pretty diverse, and this type of worker typically completes their assigned work without worrying about further obligations. VA’s are usually not in charge of others, and once they complete their assigned task to the satisfaction of the business owner or manager they are done with their work for the day. Hiring a VA is a smart choice for when an owner needs something done, but doesn’t need someone to be too invested in their business.
This is a basic outline of the typical differences between OBM’s and VA’s. It is important to remember that there are exceptions to these rules, and many workers can fall somewhere in between the two.
