The EA is not limited to doing these playbooks—he or she can do other ad hoc tasks that will help you save time, become a better person and live a better life.
Sample projects team can do
Building sales targets, customer databases (with emails, phone numbers), etc.
Building a list of publications, their journalists, links to recent stories, email addresses, etc.
Searching in LinkedIn for candidates who meet X, Y, Z attributes, and put names + connections + emails into a database; finding email addresses for all designers who work at X, Y, Z companies; logging in to X, Y, Z alumni databases and pulling emails for every graduate from year A to B and sending outreach emails from one account to everyone asking for eng referrals
Completing competitive intel checklist of X no. of items for each competitor and logging results in spreadsheet to allow easy comparison
Points of contact at companies
Instead of just contacting main decision maker (e.g. GC or CFO) you could expand to include broader set of leaders across the company and also the board of directors. With this expanded list of targets you could also check to see if you/your co-founders/your leadership team has any LinkedIn connections with people at these companies. (We'd need you to change/share your LinkedIn account with us during the project.) Then we could generate not just list of targets but also who at your company has 1st or 2nd degree connections with various people at the target company. This will give you the smoothest potential access paths inside the company.
Sending emails from your account to a massive list of people to potentially contact, and then all follow-up conversations get forwarded to whoever is point
Finding the Twitter handles for Top X people inside every company and have someone respond to one of their recent (and relevant, ideally) tweets to ask them if they've heard about your company, what they think about X, Y, Z, etc.
