Traits of a Great Virtual Assistant

by Ben Goodman ***
Many business owners get themselves a virtual assistant. They get them they can have someone who can aid them in completing various tasks. Anyone can become a virtual assistant. But there are a few traits that can make a virtual assistant being highly sought after. Here are some of the characteristics that make a good virtual assistant.


The Ability to Communicate

Virtual assistants always need to communicate with their client all the time. This means that a virtual assistant must be transparent to their client. Sure, a virtual assistant and client can communicate with each other. But good communication goes beyond only writing and speaking to a client via email.

An excellent virtual assistant informs their client on many things. A virtual assistant lets a client what they’re working on and gives them regular updates. A virtual assistant also enables the client to know what’s going on when something urgent happens. Virtual assistants have to be honest to the client to maintain trust between the both of them.

The Willingness to Learn

The best virtual assistant services will teach would-be virtual assistants many skills. They also show them the language most business clients speak and write in. Here, the virtual assistant must choose to learn the language or not. If they say no, they aren’t acting like a good virtual assistant since they didn’t take the time to learn.

There’s always the chance to learn something new. Some people find learning to be a bother. An excellent virtual assistant takes steps to broaden their knowledge on a wide array of topics.

To see if they like to learn, clients should see if a virtual assistant is asking a lot of questions. These questions can be about the tasks, the business, and other topics. Clients can also ask virtual assistants when was the last time they learned something new. That way, you can see if your virtual assistant has a natural thirst for knowledge and learning.

Good Time Management

Virtual assistants need to learn how to manage their time. Time management is necessary for every virtual assistant to master. This is because a virtual assistant will often juggle many clients and tasks at a given time.


It’s a virtual assistant’s job to finish their client’s request during a timely manner. A virtual assistant must know when to cater to their task to get the job done. You’re hired to make a client’s job easier by delivering work on schedule. If you can’t provide the work when it’s needed, your client won’t be afraid to drop you.

Being Very Reliable

This is one of the critical traits that make a good virtual assistant. Even the best virtual assistant services make sure they pair clients up with reliable virtual assistants.

A virtual assistant is someone that a client will depend on. Virtual assistants do the work that helps a client’s (or clients’) business. This means that a virtual assistant should be consistent in various tasks. Some of these tasks are to give out reports of the progress and to reply to any question you throw at them.

Clients get a virtual assistant because they want to have someone around. This someone is there to help keep their business afloat while the client does other things. Anyone can be a virtual assistant. But people should harbor some good traits before they can become a virtual assistant.
