What is a Virtual Assistant?

The Virtual Assistant Chamber of Commerce defines a VA as:

A Virtual Assistant (or VA) is a professional service provider who specializes in providing remote administrative office support services as an independent contractor who works with clients in an ongoing, collaborative professional relationship.

Virtual Assistants work from their own offices and utilize today's technology to deliver their services and communicate with clients.

A Virtual Assistant's support is foundationally administrative, secretarial and clerical in nature. However, many Virtual Assistants offer additional specialties that fall under creative and technical services.

Virtual Assistants come from a variety of business backgrounds, but the single-most important qualification to become a Virtual Assistant is at least five (5) years administrative experience earned in the real (non-virtual) business world working in upper level capacities such as administrative assistant, executive assistant, secretary, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, real estate assistant, office manager, etc.

From this level of experience, a VA is expected to possess the skill sets, training and business knowledge which are the hallmark of a truly qualified Virtual Assistant.

How does our client relationship work?

We begin with a free complimentary consultation during which time you will have the opportunity to tell us about your business and the type of assistance you are looking for. We will explain how our business works and some of the ways that we might help you with effectively managing some of your administrative tasks.

Our conversation will also allow us to get to know each other and decide if we would be a good fit. Once we decide to engage in a client relationship, you will be provided with a Client Information Package which will include our Retainer Contract, Confidentiality Agreement, Code of Ethics and other pertinent documentation.

When work begins, we utilize various forms of communications, predominantly email, but also, telephone, virtual conference rooms, instant messaging, faxing, U.S. Mail, and couriers. Weekly telephone conferences help build our professional relationship, and help us to better serve your needs. As with any relationship, it is very important to partner the right VA with the right clients; when this happens, astounding results are inevitable.

Developing a strong ongoing client relationship is of utmost importance to us, and we only work with a handful of select clients.  Our time is billed hourly, and there are several retainer packages to choose from.  The more hours that you commit to us, the greater the savings will be for you. 

How does this save you money?

We are highly skilled professionals with years of experience in the fields we serve.  We have the latest equipment and software that we utilize to get your tasks completed efficiently and professionally. Because we are not your employee you save in the following ways:

  • Pay only for the time and material spent on your projects
  • No payroll, taxes, vacation or benefits
  • No physical workspace or additional equipment needed
  • No down-time payments (coffee breaks, personal phone calls, etc.)
  • No staffing headaches

The actual cost of an employee after factoring in benefits, overtime, vacations, sick leave and any other unproductive time is actually 2-3 times their salary.

You only pay us for the actual time spent working on your projects, which translates to 100 percent productivity. We track our time using billing software that tracks to the 1/10th of an hour (six minutes). Because of our years of experience and the technology we have available, we can accomplish much more in less time, than the average in house staff assistant. This allows us to deliver even more of a savings to our clients.
