What Is An OBM?

An Online Business Manager is a virtual support professional who manages aspects of your business.

This is by no means passing the reins, it’s bringing an experienced and well-versed professional onboard to manage your team, your metrics, or your finances.

Online business management goes beyond the support services provided by a general VA. An OBM will take the time and energy to learn your business model and your business culture.

What is An Online Business Manager

How can an OBM help your business?

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

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

Project Management

PM requires a certain set of skills. An OBM possesses good PM skills, and will help you ensure a proven system is put in place. We will use this PM system to help you deliver your projects on time and within budget.

People Management

You have an online aspect to your business. Your business model is such that you require expertise support with the different factions of your business, your sales funnel, and your administration. So who manages all this?

Do you have a person in place to liaise with these other support services? If not, an option for you is to hire an OBM.

Rather than the headache of trying to deal with developers, designers, VAs, business development specialist, SEO expert, etc., etc. an OBM will take over that shift, and be your right hand (wo)man.

The hours and hours of communication, emails, messages, calls etc can be combined into a manageable process whereby you deal with one person, possibly in one location.

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.

I can take over the general operations of your business, to allow you to focus on building content, building relationships, or building your business.

Resources Management

The resources you use within your business are valuable and essential for its success.

And sometimes, those resources can interact and communicate together.

It’s just a matter of researching, exploring, and implementing the resources that offer you the cleanest, most efficient processes for your business to thrive and grow.

An OMB can take over this role. We will streamline your processes and resources.

We will save everyone time, money, stress.
