As our world moves online and we rely more and more heavily on digital life, the creative fields are struggling to keep up. Arts organizations are relying on interns for their social media campaigns, visual artists need to create website portfolios in addition to their physical portfolios, and people who are truly talented creatively are struggling with the minutiae of managing online accounts and paperwork. When you’re spending all of your time bogged down with administrative work, how are you supposed to do what you love?

Tizzy Consulting is a firm for creative companies and organizations, particularly non-profit arts organizations and for-profit artistic ventures. Tizzy Consulting is here to help you when you’re in a “tizzy” through a process called virtual assistance. According to the International Virtual Assistants Association:

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative and/or technical services. Utilizing advanced technological modes of communication and data delivery, a professional VA assists clients in his/her area of expertise from his/her own office on a contractual basis.

But why work with a virtual assistant when you could hire another employee? There are multiple benefits to working with Tizzy Consulting:

  • When you need occasional help, having someone who is paid by the hour is often a better arrangement than hiring another employee. For example, you need about 15 hours of prep work done prior to your monthly board meeting – creating nice handouts, formatting financials, placing reservations, etc. You could hire an employee (and then need to find other tasks for them to complete the other 3 weeks per month), you could ask one of your current employees to take on an additional 15 hours of work (at the sacrifice of their personal time or their other work), or you could hire Tizzy Consulting to take care of those specific 15 hours of work, and you would only pay for 15 hours of work.
  • Because this relationship is a virtual one, I work from my own office with my own equipment, so there is no additional overhead cost. Additionally, a full time staff member requires benefits, while an independent contractor does not.
  • If you don’t have the budget to hire a dedicated social media marketing employee, but you understand the importance of integrating social media into your marketing strategy, Tizzy Consulting can easily manage these accounts for you. You will partner with Tizzy Consulting to define your social media strategy, and then Tizzy Consulting will maintain your social media presence on a regular basis. It only takes an hour or so a day to create great content and conversations on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

I bring my skills to your business to help you streamline and automate your processes, allowing you the chance to get back to the things for which you are passionate! Not sure how you can use Tizzy Consulting? I would love to arrange a free 30 minute phone consultation with you!
