CybertaryTM, Inc. Helps Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses Become More Successful Despite the Economy
First Virtual Assistant Franchise Now Available in the U.S.
(Roseville, CA - January 8, 2008) - In this time of New Year's resolutions, many businesses are resolving to avoid layoffs by curtailing unnecessary hiring. However, at the same time, many small businesses are flourishing due to their ability to be more nimble than their corporate competition. With such advantages comes the desirable problem of plenty of business, which leads to a concern of how to manage it all effectively. Cybertary is a franchised network of professional Virtual Assistants (VAs) who collaborate to provide "on-demand" administrative support and specialized services to independent and small business owners, and serves as a solution for business owners determined to improve their business profitability and keep hiring conservative. Cybertary is now available as the first Virtual Assisting concept franchise in the U.S., setting the standard for the booming industry. Cybertary will be one of the franchisor exhibitors at Franchise Expo South January 11-13 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Booth 213. People interested in the Cybertary franchise system can speak personally with the founder and learn more about the business opportunity.
While helping business owners focus on profit-making activities, Cybertary also helps them avoid layoffs. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there has been a steady increase in the number of mass layoffs across the U.S. since 2005. October 2007 had the highest number of mass layoffs since October 2005. By using Cybertary as supplemental staff for special projects and unexpected activity, as opposed to hiring permanent staff, business owners can protect their workforce. When workload reduces, they can simply reduce the use of supplemental staff, not the size of their permanent workforce.
With entrepreneurism on the rise, Cybertary's diversely talented team collaborates to provide small businesses with reliable support tailored to increase productivity and decrease non-revenue producing tasks. The tech bust in 2001 forced many thousands of talented workers and executives to explore independent business options, and, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, there has been consistent annual growth of 1% nationally in the development of new businesses each year since 2001, with more than 6 million new businesses opening each year. In part due to uncertainty, large corporations are no longer the trend in the U.S. and, according to Kathryn Kobe of Economic Consulting Services, as quoted in the SBA's Office of Advocacy's Report to the President, ".small businesses account for half of private, nonfarm gross domestic product in the U.S."
Resources such as Cybertary have emerged just in time to support these entrepreneurs and small business owners. The failure rate for new businesses is about 50%, likely due to new business owners not seeking the right resources to make their businesses successful. Small firms total approximately 23 million in the United States, but roughly 75 percent have no employees, according to the Small Business Administration. That means many small business owners are out there trying to "do it all." Increasingly, Cybertary and other professional VAs are growing in popularity since they relieve business owners of the bookkeeping, data entry, marketing and other tasks so they can focus on their clients or take time off. Cybertary clients save time and money, paying only for time spent on task without the burdens of payroll and overhead.
While small businesses thrive and the popularity of VA businesses rises, Cybertary franchise owners are supporting a variety of businesses and finding great success in their investments. "I am excited about the diversity in my increasing client base," says Tracy Phipps, Cybertary unit franchise owner in South Charlotte, North Carolina. "Almost any business can benefit from partnering with Cybertary. I help contractors, financial planners, authors and even a tortilla factory grow their business while I build my own."
Valerie Dow and Tina Angell are the Cybertary regional franchise owners in Sacramento, California. "In just six months we increased our client base, expanded our team and more than doubled our revenue," explained Dow. "Running a successful, professional business from home has been more rewarding than we anticipated. It's the ideal business model for those who want a flexible work schedule and competitive wage."
"It is my mission to provide this opportunity to career-minded administrative professionals who either wish to leave the corporate world and build their own home-based business or maximize their professional experience as a Cybertary team member," explained Cybertary founder and President, Patricia Beckman.
