VIRTUAL ASSITANTS

If you are a start-up looking for full time virtual resources or an administrative / department head in your organization looking to hire a team of virtual assistants as Full Time Employees (FTEs) – ZirtualTalks also provides Corporate Administrative Assistants who are trained experts in various verticals and can serve as FTEs for your organization. The best part about ZirtualTalks is our price. For a fraction of what you would pay an in-house assistant, you can get support even when you are not in the office.
  • Virtual Assistants work from home (or other locations of their choosing) so you don’t need to worry about finding workspace for them.
  • As well as being excellent organizers and administrators many virtual assistants have a range of other skills (I quite like techie website stuff too). So you can hire the person with the skill set that you need.
  • Virtual assistants take on those every day essential tasks you don't have time for because you're too busy growing your business and wearing all the others hats you have to wear: sales and marketing manager, CEO, strategic planner, etc.
  • You agree a set amount of hours and so you only need to pay for hours worked. You will likely know in advance what you will need to pay.
  • A virtual assistant will be able to take on many of the tasks that need to be done to keep your business running. This may include website maintenance, newsletter organizing, chasing invoices. You are then free to concentrate on your core business.
  • You won't pay any overtime and yet you'll still keep your projects on schedule.
  • A virtual assistant may have skills that you don't, desperately need but don't have time to learn.
