Things people often ask us

Why do I need a virtual assistant?

You need a Virtual Assistant so that you can offload time-consuming admin tasks to someone else, leaving you free to focus on more important tasks such as growing your business or billing more of your available hours to paying clients. A Virtual Assistant can also free up your time to spend with your family and dramatically lower stress and overwhelm levels too.

Hiring yourself to do energy-zapping tasks is holding you back and isn't the best use of your time - 79% of entrepreneurs work a longer week than anyone else - but only 33% of businesses survive for more than 10 years.

A Virtual Assistant is a better option than hiring an assistant full-time because they offer more flexibility, considerably lower cost and no additional overheads needs such as office space or equipment.

How does a virtual assistant work?

A Virtual Assistant works just like a regular assistant, but they work remotely from their own home on a part-time basis. This means a Virtual Assistant can provide you with the vital support you need, at up to 90% less than the cost of hiring an assistant full-time.

Your Virtual Assistant can take care of the tasks that routinely steal your time, whether that’s scheduling, sorting your inbox or writing social media posts and blogs. They also cover ‘life admin’ – from booking family holidays to organising weddings and birthday parties.

How will I work with my assistant?

It's easy to delegate ongoing or one-off tasks to your Virtual Assistant using our website - they'll work on your tasks and keep you up to date on progress. Your Virtual Assistant will be dedicated to you, getting to know you and your business, and you'll work remotely using email, Whatsapp, text, phone, video meeting or other tools you prefer to use to communicate.

What if I've never used an assistant before?

Don't worry! Almost all of the tens of thousands of clients we've helped haven't worked with an assistant before. We’ll assign you a dedicated Client Happiness manager who is there to support and guide you at every step of the way.

How much time will I save by using a Virtual Assistant?

The amount of time you save depends on the size of plan you buy and how many tasks you delegate to your assistant. On average our clients save at least 20 hours per month.

What if I don't know what or how to delegate tasks?

Don't worry! As part of your onboarding journey, we'll explain exactly what kinds of task are best delegated to your assistant and, if you like, we'll even help you document them and get them ready for being handed over to your assistant.

How will me assistant understand me and my business?

During your onboarding we'll find out all about you and your business. This information will be passed to your new assistant so they'll be fully in the picture. In addition, you'll have online meetings with your assistant where they'll learn more about you and you’ll get to know and trust each other.

How do I get matched to a Virtual Assistant?

We'll find out about you and listen to your needs on a call together. Next, we'll suggest an assistant that meets your requirements. You'll be able to review their profile and speak to them before making your mind up.

In the unlikely event that our suggested assistant isn't quite right for you, we'll keep working until we find the perfect fit. In any case, you can always change your assistant, free of charge, if your needs change.

How do I sign up?

Book a call with a specialist who'll be able to get you up and running. If you prefer, try a virtual assistant for free by starting a free trial.

Is there a setup fee?

There's no setup fee. Just pay for your first month to get started.

How easy is it to cancel or change my plan?

It's very easy to cancel - there's no notice period and one email or call to our team is all it takes. You can grow or shrink your plan at a moments notice, at any time.

Is my confidential information safe?

All of our assistants have signed comprehensive Non-Disclosure Agreements, created by legal professionals, to protect your confidential information. In addition, we provide a highly secure environment, featuring bank-grade encryption, through which to exchange your information. If you are concerned about confidential information, please contact us for further reassurance.
