Outsourcing your administrative tasks to a virtual assistant has obvious benefits for you and your business. You aren’t bogged down in mundane but necessary tasks and can use your time to drive your business forward, while also saving money on hiring in-house staff.
The problem is that many VAs who provide outsourced administrative and secretarial services have experience and strengths in one or two areas. Your business needs expertise in several.

Q: What is a virtual assistant?
A: A virtual assistant, or VA, is an outsourced, online version of a personal assistant. VAs provide administration and secretarial services as a basis, but many combine their role with that of bookkeeper, social media manager, and web designer and offer much more.
Q: How does a virtual assistant work?
A: Here’s the process we follow:
- We have an initial meeting with potential clients to explore options and find out what they need. Our services are tailored to them.
- We deal with the legal stuff – getting contracts signed and, if needed, non-disclosure agreements.
- We set up systems to ensure our clients get what they need. That could be time slots for managing their emails, software to manage their databases, or scheduling times and brand styles for social media posts.
- We get things done!
Q: What kind of services do you offer for businesses needing help with events?
A: We can do everything you need to help get your event off the ground. We can help with event planning and coordination, venue hire, refreshments, liaising with delegates, social media promotion, staffing stands and organising and distributing feedback forms. We have associates experienced in helping your events to run smoothly.
Q: I need assistance with my marketing tasks. Can you help?
A: Yes, of course. We can help you with emails, social media scheduling, design work for business cards, brochures, flyers, and catalogues, web development and design, and data management and entry for your email list, ensuring you comply with GDPR.
Q: My books are taking up so much time. What could I do?
A: Outsourcing your bookkeeping is one of the best ways to free up your time. That will help you ensure your accountant has all the details he or she needs to file your management accounts and file tax returns, and you’ll have a clear picture of what is, and isn’t, making your business money. We have experienced bookkeepers ready to take the burden from your shoulders.
Q: What sort of administrative tasks could you do for me?
A: Database management and data entry, helping you comply with GDPR, invoicing, planning and booking your travel, internet research, liaising with customers, transcribing audio, arranging meetings and refreshments, attending meetings and taking minutes, bookkeeping, and helping you stay on top of your emails.
Q: What sort of software do you use?
A: We use many of the most popular software packages to help make your business flourish. They include Microsoft Office, Google Drive, Accountancy Manager, Dropbox, PCloud, WordPress, Toggl, Squarespace. Asana, and Evernote. We are also experienced in using social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Q: What sort of service can you provide to individuals?
A: We help people find a cleaner or tradesperson, manage their utilities, plan weekends away and holidays, and plan events such as birthday parties and weddings.
Q: Where do you work?
A: As most of our work is based online and we are virtual assistants, we can have clients anywhere in the world.
