Ad hoc is a term used for “as needed”. I have no idea why people don’t just say as needed instead. : ) Anyway, an ad hoc virtual assistant is great for busy women who just need someone to work for them a couple of times a week or so. Ad hoc work may not be frequent enough to deal with on a daily basis, but it’s often enough to interrupt other business duties.
Some examples of ad hoc work would be replying to comments on social media or online directories, scheduling social media posts to Hootsuite, replying to emails while you’re on vacation or on a business trip, research, uploading YouTube videos or transcribing occasional videos for SEO purposes.
