It’s no secret that AVirtual is a big fan of hiring virtual assistants and remote employees for small businesses. In our experience with clients, they’ve proven themselves as a vital part of the day-to-day running of any business, taking care of the little things so entrepreneurs can focus on the big things needed to grow the business.
However, finding the right virtual assistant for your business’s specific needs on your own may not be an easy undertaking. It’s bound to take up a chunk of your valuable time, too.
We recommend hiring your virtual assistant with the help of a virtual assistant agency, and we’ll tell you why below.
Pay as you need
In addition to the benefit of not having to invest in a full-time employee, hiring a virtual assistant through an agency allows you the advantage of only paying for the time you need. Most virtual assistant agencies charge by the hour, giving you control over what you end up paying. This also encourages you to be more discerning about the tasks you delegate to your virtual assistant.
Screening and checks are done for you
Any reputable virtual assistant agency does the work of thoroughly screening potential candidates even before they’re assigned to clients. At AVirtual, we have a stringent recruitment and selection process. All applicants undergo a series of interviews, as well as skills and values assessments. Getting the AVirtual stamp of approval is no easy feat, as only 1% of applicants make the cut.
Get the perfect match for your specific requirements
Virtual assistant agencies have access to a diverse pool of resources with a broad range of skills and experience. When you express interest in working with a virtual assistant agency, you should have the opportunity to share details about what you’re looking for in an assistant, what industry you work in, and what you’ll need help with.
Your agency can then match you to the perfect candidate so that you’re fully aligned.
Try before you buy
Some would say one of the best parts of working with a virtual assistant is the chance to give the service a trial before you make any commitments. At AVirtual, we offer a free 5-hour trial, which is ample time for you to test out a few tasks for your virtual assistant and ensure you work well together.
Should you be dissatisfied in any way, you have the option of trying an alternative assistant.
However, if all goes well in your trial and you decide to sign up for virtual assistant services, you have the assurance of a 30-day money-back guarantee. We assure you that you’ll be hooked once you’ve experienced life with a virtual assistant.
