Law Firm Marketing Ideas – Virtual Overflow Help
How can virtual help go wrong?
There is very little that can go wrong with virtual help now! The advantages far outweigh the problems that can arise. We often place virtual help with our law firms.
The only thing that can really go wrong is that you don’t like their work and end up hiring someone else. There’s no desk space, personality issues in the office, bad smells, gossip or any real drawbacks that we’ve found using virtual help for our law firms over the many years.
What jobs in my office can be virtual?
Pretty much all of the jobs in your office can be virtual, even you! Getting into cloud based online case management will help you! We have placed legal secretaries, receptionists, Facebook advertising chat specialists and even lawyers licensed in the state where you need help!
What is a good way to get started?
Using companies like Upwork to hire by the week is also a great start! We have done all of it for our clients and managed the new hires, as well as making suggestions about how to best approach getting new fresh vital virtual help into the law firms!
One thing I love about Upwork is that we put the money in escrow and it gets paid when the job is completed to specs. Everything is documented and we all know what to expect. You don’t need to pay if the job isn’t done to your liking. One warning about upwork, is that it takes time to find the right person, and communicate with them. Paying them is also a bit time consuming in upwork! But think of all the freedom you’ll have!
WHAT DOES VIRTUAL HELP COST?
