What Is An Online Business Manager?

An Online Business Manager (OBM) is a virtual support professional and consultant who manages aspects of businesses.

An OBM is a well-versed professional  that can manage your team, your metrics, your finances and all digital aspects of your business.

Online business management goes beyond the support services provided by a standard Virual Assistant.

An OBM will take the time and energy to learn your business model and your business culture.

An OBM is already a business owner themselves. They manage the same things that you manage within your business, and they understand the challenges and pitfalls of being a business owner.

Additionally, they have  the experience to help you in the following aspects of your online business:

project management

Project Management

PM requires a certain set of skills. An OBM possesses excellent PM skills and will help you ensure a proven system is put in place. Our PM systems allows us to keep track of multiple tasks and which will allow us to see each task through from start to finish completing your projects on time and within budget.

Business Planning

An OBM wouldn’t necessarily be the right person to create a business plan for your business, but more so help by improving a business plan.  Again the OBM, like you, is a business owner and has many years of experience adjusting to real-world business situations.  An OBM will give you perspectives from their view which will help you make calculated decisions. 

Operations Management

Operations make up a business’s ongoing, repetitive activities, such as accounting or compliance. Many of these processes can go unattended because of projects, sales, or simply not enough time in the day to achieve everything a business requires.  An OBM can identify the holes in a system, and patch the holes with implemented processes which can be handled by an employee, or one of our talented team members here at AVA.

Resources Management

Resource management means being able to understand a project or business goals and optimizing all aspects of each process with maximum efficiency.   An OBM can take over this role by streamlining your processes and resources.

The biggest difference between an Online Business Manager and a standard Virtual Assistant is that the OBM has always been a decsion maker, while a VA follows instructions.

Sometimes business owners needs someone to help make decisions and execute versus someone waiting to be told what to do.  

Having an OBM will create and add value to your business and free up time for you to work on other areas of your business or directly with clients.

An OBM is your digital partner, that will help you move your business forward.
