In this virtual, post-covid world, I've been hearing that more and more companies and independent contractors are hiring Virtual Assistants to help them with their administrative and marketing needs. Though I think that Virtual Assistants can be AMAZING and help a business gain traction through leveraging, I do believe that companies and individuals need to be cautious and not confuse the tasks of a Virtual Assistant with a Marketing Company.
