Working with remote teams gives you access to varied skills and specialization, greater work capacity, and faster turnaround times. Some remote teams have challenges, such as communication and scheduling but with Magic Teams, you can rely on a  remote team who will easily manage and adjust according to what your business needs.

What is a Remote Team?

A remote team, also known as a virtual team, is a group of remote workers who collaborate through electronic communication to reach a company’s goal/s.

Building a remote team can provide numerous benefits for businesses looking to scale. There are different types of virtual teams categorized according to objective, lifespan, and member roles:

Composed of multifunctional remote workers so they can share their skills and expertise in reaching a company goal. For example, a marketing team requires a social media manager, SEO specialist, and a digital marketing creative among others to promote a company’s product or service.

Usually formed for a short period; team members provide assistance or recommendations to improve a process of a certain team. They are more solution oriented and offer faster turnaround.

Responsible for developing a new product, information system, or business process. Remote workers have different functions such as innovation, product management, engineering, and operations.

Team members work independently and usually have different schedules/time zones. The work done by each member may be a continuation of the previous worker to provide constant service.

A temporary team formed to provide a quick but effective solution to an immediate problem.

How to Build a Remote Team with Magic

Step 1: Determine what your virtual team needs to do

Deciding what your virtual team will do is crucial to finding the right members. Pinpoint your objective along with the tasks needed to reach it. This way, you can identify what skills to look for in hiring remote workers.

For example, if you want to have a strong online presence, you will need a digital marketing team to handle your SEO, social media, and paid ads campaigns.

Once you figure out what kind of virtual team your business needs, you can determine how many team members should be in it.

Step 2: Schedule a call with Magic

Book a call with us to discuss expectations of your  virtual team. Let us know what your business goals and objectives are so we can get a proper understanding of your specifications. Magic will help find you the right candidates pulling from a pool of top college-educated remote workers.

Step 3: Assess recommendations

After the call, Magic will send an email with a list of candidates that match your requirements, along with their resumes and other relevant information. If you’re not satisfied with the recommendations, you can email us with your feedback and we’ll give you a new set of candidates.

Step 4: Onboard your remote workers

Once you’re satisfied with your remote team, the account manager assigned to you will organize an onboarding call with the selected virtual assistants. You can then decide their start dates and relay the necessary information about their roles such as their daily tasks and the tools and platforms they’ll use.

The billing process and other concerns can be discussed with the account manager. In the future, you can easily scale your team up or down according to what your business needs. All you need to do is reach out to your account manager.

Step 5: Modify your remote team as needed

Aside from 24-hour matching and priority support, Magic Teams offers an unlimited assistant replacement. Have confidence knowing  that you’re hiring the best remote workers for your business.

If you need to scale up or down to avoid overstretching or hurting your business, Magic can also assist you in handling growing pains easily and cost-effectively. You can also take advantage of Integration tools to seamlessly delegate tasks to your remote team.
