What is a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant (or VA if you like abbreviations) is a self-employed business owner, not an employee, who provides administrative support to individuals and businesses.
As VAs are business owners themselves, this means they do have a better understanding of where and how they can assist you and your business.
What are the Benefits of using a Virtual Assitant?
No need to worry about Superannuation, annual leave and sick leave, holiday pay, PAYG tax. Since Virtual Assistants are independent contractors, all these costs are incorporated in the hourly rate.
No need to worry about paying for non-productive time. You only pay for the hours worked by your VA.
No need to provide office space, furniture or equipment. VAs work from their own (home) office hence have everything already in place.
Frees up your valuable time. Outsourcing certain admin tasks to a VA will help free up your time to focus on what you love and are passionate about in your business.
How do I get started using your VA Services?
It’s so easy: Email me with what you believe is costing you time and/or tasks don’t like doing. After having chat to see where I can help you best, an agreement will then be written up so we both know ‘who does what and when for how much’ and that’s it. We are ready to go!
How do we communicate?
Whatever you feel most comfortable with. This can be E-mail, phone, traditional mail, text message or via Skype.
What are your payment terms?
Generally – A 50% deposit needs to be paid before work can commence. The difference (last 50%) will be invoiced after completion of each job and needs to be paid immediately. However, we will talk about this when we have our initial chat.
