"Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners" (sba.gov). This year, May 4th through the 8th is the week dedicated to honoring small businesses in the US. As a small business our self, noHold appreciates the value our solution brings within enterprises, but also recognizes the benefits that it can produce for small businesses. Here are the top 3 advantages to making a Virtual Assistant apart of your small business team.

1. Implementing a Virtual Assistant is cost effective. As a small business, saving money where you can is important. By offer your customers with a web based self service solution to cater to their support needs, you empower them to find the answers to their own questions 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week, thus reducing support costs.

2. The Virtual Assistant reduces the volume of calls/emails to contact centers, decreasing the load that a live agent would need to tend to. 

3. The Virtual Assistant is designed to be easily maintained making it convenient for small businesses who do not have a lot of man power.
