Socialising with colleagues. Like with social media websites, all employees are likely to want to share information and their colleagues are often their friends, too. It’s important to foster good relationships between employees as it leads to harmony and, ultimately productive working partnerships. However, if you feel there’s more ‘what did you do last night?’ chatter going on than actual work, it’s important to put a stop to it. There’s normally one or two employees who are worse at this than others, so keep an eye out and have a friendly word if you think it’s too much. If it keeps on happening, you may need to take sterner action.
VoIP technology can be especially important if your business does not have a physical location.

A niche is a more specific idea in a certain field. To establish a niche is to focus on a more specific part of a specific field. For example, it’s hard to go head to head with the more established online bookstores especially since they’ve basically started the trend of selling books online. If you’re really determined to start your own online bookstore, you may want to focus on a niche like selling books that were autographed by the authors.
Rates for a virtual office assistant can vary depending on the project. Consider a nominal monthly fee for your clients as a retainer and then charge based on the project. The monthly fee shows they’re serious as a client and puts on a subtle pressure to make use of your services. Rates can range from an hour to or more an hour depending on the project. Some assistants work a flat rate as well and just expect things to even out in the end. Depending on your own research and expectations of the types of jobs you may get from your clients, choose what makes the most sense for both parties. You have a right to earn a living while providing much wanted and needed services for your clients.
