Virtual Sales Assistant

Virtual sales assistant is a remote contractor who supports a salesperson by helping with routine, day-to-day tasks.

Outsourcing administrative tasks or other low-touch work to a virtual assistant can help a salesperson increase their productivity and focus more on the high-touch core sales work.

There are also AI-based software tools, e.g. chatbots, that can also act as a virtual sales assistant automating repetitive, simple tasks like appointment setting or data entry.
