Online Business Managers Provide a High Return on Investment

Online Business Managers Provide a High Return on Investment

​Welcome to today's blog post, Online Business Managers provide a High Return on Investment.

Many business owners know they need help and will decide to hire an online business manager. ​

Often, they think they can find a good ​Online Business Manager for a minimal investment on freelancers’ websites or virtual employment agencies.

​Hiring an Online Business Manager gives you a higher return on investment for the Future of your Business.

​Most business owners don’t realize that hiring a Certified Online Business Manager ​is a ​higher investment than hiring a virtual assistant.  

There are ​several misconceptions out in the marketplace that an Online Business Manager is a higher level Virtual Assistant.  

A Virtual Assistant is hired on teams to support the business by executing specialized tasks in the running of a business. 

An Online Business Manager is a second-in-Command role ​

An Online Business Manager is a second-in-command role in your business...

...a mini-YOU.  

There will come a time in the growth of your business where you will need to release the day-to-day to a seasoned second-in-command.  

​You'll need to take this action because there is only so much of you and you can't do everything and grow.  

​This second-in-command role leads and manages the day-to-day operations, team, projects, marketing implementation. ​

This role will also partner with you for strategic planning, goal setting and ​metrics analysis. 

​Visionary entrepreneurs are not always great about planning ahead.

Visionary's just like to show up and not worry about the details.  

​The return on investment is well worth the ​management fees you'll pay. 

The role of Online Business Manager gives you a high return on investment.  

They practically pay for themselves!

​Not all business are financially ready to hire a second-in-command role.  ​​

​Start-Up Stage

​If your business is in the start-up phase ​you're doing most of the work yourself and hiring others for specific tasks or projects.   

​You're watching every penny ​closely during this stage. 

​Your focus is on getting clients and sustainable revenue. 

​Your business is not ready for an Online Business Manager yet.  

There needs to be a business to manage.  

​Growth Stage

​When you move into what is called the Growth stage you begin to hire virtual assistants (VAs) and other online professionals to accomplish your current goals. 

​​​Revenue is flowing in easier and more consistently in this stage, but... 

Expenses are ​​rising as you're ​paying ​for people and technology to support your growing needs and goals.  ​

​​You're still doing ​most of the leading and ​managing of operations, team, projects and marketing implementation. 

​Your business is growing but your time is SHRINKING.

If your business is like ​most in the growth business cycle you'll begin to ​​hit a ceiling.

You're Hitting a Growth Ceiling | Brenda Violette

​A ceiling ​in your ​ability to...

  • ​work more hours
  • ​increase profit
  • ​control cost
  • ​go forward with your skill-set

This ceiling typically becomes apparent in the early to mid 6 figures.

​It's ​can be very ​uncomfortable during this stage if you don't have the right roles, people systems and processes ​in place to ride the white water waves of growth.

You'll begin to feel:

  • ​Overwhelmed
  • ​Overworked
  • ​Stressed
  • Alone

​During this phase you simply can't ​(and shouldn’t) manage the day-to-day activities of ​your business. 

​You need someone who can step into an integrator (manager) role so ​you can fully step into ​your Visionary (CEO) role in the business.

That’s where a Certified Online Business Manager ​comes in.

​The investment a business owner makes in hiring a skilled and experienced online business manager is returned exponentially.
