No business is too big or small to use a PA, and with recent technological development with the internet, the new era of PA’s has come in the form of virtual assistants. Virtual assistants work remotely from their own home but undertake the same duties a normal PA would, and this can offer a cost effective alternative for smaller business who need help. So, what does a PA do? Some of the duties a personal assistant may undertake include email and calendar management, organising transportation, call handling, research and event planning. As an independent contractor, you might also use a PA for basic bookkeeping and invoicing your clients. If you are trying to build an online personal brand, PA’s can also help with managing your social media profiles.
A chatbot is a special computer program using artificial intelligence (AI) that conducts a conversation with people, either via auditory or text input. Programmers design chatbots to realistically simulate how humans speak as conversational partners. Brands increasingly use chatbots to communicate with their customers and market their products. An AI chatbot can understand language wider than a set of pre-programmed commands and continues learning based on the inputs it receives. It can make changes based on patterns and become smarter over time.

“Burnout” is a phrase that’s thrown around so often it’s lost some of its impact. Yet any entrepreneur or CEO who’s experienced burnout knows just how debilitating it can be. So how do you avoid it? Many will agree that the first step is delegation. Ensuring there are other hands to pick up tasks that you just don’t have enough hours to do. When you begin delegating to a virtual assistant it’s like paying money into a bank of time and energy. That you can easily reclaim, ensuring your account doesn’t run on empty.
Executive Assistants find out what’s going on before almost anyone else. They sit it on key meetings, offer input on critical decisions, and liaise with multiple teams and even partner companies. Executive Assistants are probably among the first to find out when a CEO decides to leave the company. (After all, they’ll probably be critical to making plans for figuring out what to do when the big boss actually leaves.) EAs will probably also hear first if say—leadership decides it’s time to pick a new office space; they’ll be front and center in that process as well.
Owned by LogMeIn, this software has security features and a UI/UX that feels outdated and hinders the productivity of the end users. Parts of the platform feel like a legacy system, and although you have everything you need and more with Bold360, it’s just not as smooth or visually appealing as many of the new customer service chatbots on the market.
Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana, and Google Assistant are all, to some extent, chatbots. A chatbot is a special computer program using artificial intelligence (AI) that conducts a conversation with people, either via auditory or text input. This is precisely what you do when using Alexa and the other products mentioned. However, none of these apps are as advanced as many other chatbots – they really only give predetermined answers to questions that people ask, rather than using much AI to learn from conversations.
