Ever felt like hustling away in your business, like you need to be everywhere at once? Chances are high that you might be ready to hire an Online Business Manager (OBM).
Simply said an OBM “manages online based businesses”. It’s the strategist in your business, your right hand woman/man, also referred to as the “Integrator” as they hold the people, processes, systems, and strategy of your business together.
An Online Business Manager is a professional who frees up your time by managing the day-to-day operations, so you can fully step into your CEO shoes, focus on strategic growth and serve your clients.

Today I’m sharing with you why you might be ready to hire an Online Business Manager.
You are the bottleneck of the business
You’re trying to wear all the hats. From content creation and managing the FB ads budget to program launches and planning events, everything is run by you.
Things start to fall through the cracks because you just simply can’t stay on top of everything.
The job of an Online Business Manager, is to remove you from working in your business so you can step into your CEO shoes and work ON your business. OBMs are managing all the moving pieces in your business from communicating with your team, to making sure that deadlines are met, blog posts are written, website links are working and customer requests are answered.
An Online Business Manager is your virtual COO who makes sure the strategies you worked on so hard actually get implemented.
You are micro-managing your team
On paper, you have a kickass team of support. But in reality, you’re wondering if they are actually taking work off your plate or adding to it. You spend hours each week answering questions, scheduling team meetings, reviewing projects, chasing team members or explaining processes. The truth is that it’s merely impossible to be a good leader and manager at the same time.
Online Business Managers are not only great at managing projects but they are also great people managers. They know how to set up systems and metrics that allow to delegate tasks and projects while maintaining the quality you and your business stand for. As the bridge between you as the business owner and your team of employees or contractors, the Online Business Manager makes sure that the goals you set get executed and all communication with the team is taken care of.
Your income has plateaued
In order to scale your business, you need to find a way to serve more people. But what if there are just no more hours in your day? An Online Business Manager will take tasks and projects off your plate so you have room to scale your business and increase your revenue. OBMs also come with great expertise in the field of online businesses, and are here to help you create the big picture and break it down into an executable action plan. They are literally your biz bestie and biggest support system.
