How do clients effectively have their virtual assistants manage calendars? What about having them contact clients, vendors, etc? Are they doing so through their personal email? Text? Any help here? Thank you!
That really depends on each individual client's preference.
I for one have assistant in my inbox managing the flow of emails, organizing and overseeing projects. Other tools such as Slack, Skype also help a lot with communciation.
for contacting vendors and prospecting new clients, I haev them do through their own email address and always CC me in their communication. And normally I will try to work with them using shared inboxes as well. The again it depends on the client and how he or she prefers their schedule/calendar to be managed.
Hope this helped!
