Team Double-Click®, the country's largest and oldest virtual staffing agency, popular with small business owners for it’s meticulous virtual assistant screening, interviewing and training process, recently announced they will be partnering with independent virtual assistant business owners across North America in order to provide a wider range of services at more affordable pricing to clients while substantially increasing the earning potential for the virtual assistants. In these tough economic times, virtual assistant demand is on the rise as clients look for new ways to slash budgets and increase income. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for new virtual assistants, and in some cases even experienced virtual assistants, to drive clients their way.
The solution comes in the form of a new website. Virtual assistants will have the ability to upload their full profile so clients can locate and contact them directly. Clients then logon to use VirtualAssistingUSA.com’s internal search engine to locate these virtual assistants and determine which one(s) fit their company’s needs. For a small ($9.95) monthly fee virtual assistants will receive their own profile page to advertise, be offered a free training module on how to start a virtual business and will have access to a wide variety of affordable training, ranging from $9.95 to $49.95, depending on the level of the training. History shows that virtual assistants who are more thoroughly trained are able to command higher rates of pay and are in higher demand.
Each virtual assistant who opts for the program will receive his or her own specific VirtualAssistingUSA.com URL, which he or she can then use to advertise their virtual assistant services and aid in driving clients to their virtual business. VirtualAssistingUSA.com will also be working to drive clients to the site and into the “offices” of these virtual assistants.
Virtual assistant profiles feature general information about the virtual assistant, his or her training, experience, and pricing. Also shown is the virtual assistant’s contact information so clients can easily call or email new work specifics.
VirtualAssistingUSA.com is designed as a self-service site, which cuts out the agency fees associated with typical virtual staffing. Clients who aren’t looking for ongoing customer support can eliminate that portion of their bill. This allows virtual assistants to receive a higher rate of pay and allows the client to pay a lower hourly wage than they would through a virtual staffing agency.
To keep a level playing field for virtual assistants and to assure clients of only English-speaking virtual assistants, VirtualAssistingUSA.com is open only to residents of North America. In addition, to prevent severe rate undercutting, as is often seen on other self-service matching sites, VirtualAssistingUSA.com will set lower-limit pricing so users are unable to unfairly undercut their fellow virtual assistants and clients won’t waste their time on virtual assistants who intend to deliver substandard work. There are, however, no upper limits set. VirtualAssistingUSA.com feels that clients and the market will “set” upper limits based on what they feel is fair market value for a particular service.
VirtualAssistingUSA.com virtual assistants are able to use the VirtualAssistingUSA.com name, email address, brand, logo, and marketing messages to obtain their own clients. VirtualAssistingUSA.com provides the backend support of invoicing, collections, and web maintenance for the virtual assistant.
Because VirtualAssistingUSA.com is owned, powered, and backed by Team Double-Click®, virtual assistants will have access to thousands of potential clients and innumerable more work opportunities.
“Through the VirtualAssistingUSA.com program we’ve effectively cut out the middleman - Team Double-Click® - which means clients can save more and virtual assistants can make more. Both are very needed in this new and unpredictable economy.” Explains Gayle Buske, President and CEO of ViritualAssistingUSA.com and Team Double-Click®. Buske adds, “VirtualAssistingUSA.com is designed to give easier and more affordable access to virtual assistant services and to help put more virtual assistants to work.” To ensure that the high industry standards of Team Double-Click® are continued to be upheld, the company, when building VirtualAssistingUSA.com, Team Double-Click® incorporated many of its same quality standards into the new site.
Those virtual assistants registering for VirtualAssistingUSA.com prior to July 1, 2009 will receive their first month free.
