and what you can expect from us
You may be wondering how much we actually charge for being your very own personal Virtual Assistant. Well, we have different options to offer you. In the majority of cases, it’s much better for us to sit down either in person or over Skype and discuss your requirements and tailor a package to suit you, your budget and your business. We recognise you and your business are unique, it’s definitely not a case of one size fits all.
Here is an idea of our general rates:
By the hour: We charge an hourly rate of £25.00+ VAT. We round up to the nearest 15 minutes and track our time to give you a complete breakdown of the work we have completed for you. We will provide you with a thorough timesheet along with your invoice. You will be pleasantly surprised by how much focused, work, we can achieve in an hour.
By the project: There may be times that you have a specific project or task that needs completing. On these occasions, we will discuss whether it will be better for us both, to establish a set cost for the project or an hourly rate.
Retainer: Dependent upon the quantity or type of tasks you need completing, and whether you have a set budget that you need to keep to; it may be simpler for you to pay us a set fee. This is where you pay us for a set number of hours, in advance each month. We still keep a thorough time sheet of the work we complete for you, letting you know if you are nearing your retained amount, well in advance, so that you don’t have to worry about any spiralling costs.
What you can expect from us and the way we work:
What you can expect from us, is the promise of fastidious and trustworthy individuals, who are dedicated to providing you with a service that is second to none. We will organise and streamline your systems as we respect how precious your time and money is.
We work completely virtually, so unless absolutely necessary, and apart from maybe the occasional face to face meeting with you, we work mainly from where-ever we plug in our laptops. This means that unless certain tasks need completing on a specific day or time, we complete the work within our own chosen working hours.
To give you peace of mind, we have full and comprehensive Public Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance, ensure full external backups and data encryption and are registered for Data Protection with the Information Commissioners Office.
Whilst we fully appreciate that we are working ‘with’ you to achieve your workload requirements, we ask that our clients respect that we are not working ‘for’ them (we are not employees) and we have other clients we work ‘with’ too.
Our mission is to ensure that you still get those important jobs, which ‘need’ doing but don’t earn you any money, done. Whilst at the same time, still being able to focus on achieving the jobs you ‘need’ to, and enjoy doing, because they are the ones that you’re good at and they DO earn you money.
Between us, we can achieve this mission!
