by darrel_seo in Admin Support, General, Human Resource, Online Marketing, Services, Website Management

Imagine this, waking up at 5 AM for a work at 7 AM but you have to consider showering, dressing up, making breakfast for your family, make sure your kids are ready to go to school and your husband is prepped for work, then you have to consider the traffic in the metro and a quick order of a venti-sized cafe latte for an instant pick-me-up then work 8 hours for the rest day and go home and take care of your family again but you are exhausted already and all you want to do is crash onto your bed but then the reality sinks in that this is your routine, 5 days a week for a month–always working, you have no rest and you feel the overwhelming burnout.

Do I need the document edited or proofread?

by Richard Cantrall in Admin Support, Services, Tips, Typography

I’m often asked to proofread a document only to find after wading through a mishmash of muddled text, that the document clearly needs a major rewrite. At other times, I’m asked to edit a document when it’s clear that only minor grammatical errors need correcting. Proofread or edit – which is called for?

Order Processing

by Jocelyn Fernandez in Services

Every business in the world runs on the idea that the customer is king, and in the process of doing business nothing is more crucial than being able to deliver what customers pay for. Whether it be a service or a product, businesses need to provide a seamless and efficient process of capturing customer data and completing ordering requirements. Efficiency, after all, plays a central role in the profitability of any business operation and the viability of a product itself. In simple terms, customers would not be interested in ordering a product that takes too long to arrive after they’ve paid for it. In any industry or business, delays and complications add to customers’ overall negative impression of a business, a problem that greatly contributes to a drop in revenue over the long term.

Email Handling

by Jocelyn Fernandez in Services

Email or “electronic mail,” as we know it today, has been a fixture of our online experience for almost as long as the internet has been in existence. It started out as a simple text-only feature but has since evolved into a more sophisticated service that allows users to send not only text messages but also pictures, audio, video, and all kinds of data through computers and mobile devices. And, for most of us, checking our email accounts is as normal and instinctive as breathing or making coffee. Email runs our personal and professional lives by helping us order our priorities, it let’s us keep in touch with family, and email helps us stay on top of all the different work that we do. However, it is because of the routine nature of email in our lives that we often become complacent about safeguarding our privacy and filtering out the unnecessary things that regularly find their way into our inbox.
In the increasingly innovative world of digital correspondence, Email Screening has quietly become an indispensable service, both for personal and professional use. It’s not readily apparent but the time we spend weeding through spam and scanning for  viruses in the email we receive costs us more in terms of productivity and time that’s better spent on more profitable things. Email Spam, very specifically, makes up about 80% of the email content we receive and they are often used as a delivery vehicle for highly-destructive viruses or as a method for Phishing, a malicious attempt to steal personal data like email addresses, passwords, and bank details through the use of click-bait content or other means. Imagine, all of your personal information taken from your email account without your knowledge and traded internationally like a commodity by parties both legal and criminal.
MY OWN VIRTUAL ASSISTANT (MyOwnVA) offers a robust Email Screening service that is internet-based and 100% secure. MyOwnVA does not store any of your personal data and will never share any information that you register with our service. Our Email Screening service allows customers to be free of the unnecessary chore of cleaning up their inbox and scanning for malware and other malicious content. The MyOwnVA Email Screening guarantees that your inbox will always be secure and the correspondence you get is exactly what you expect, no hidden ads, clickbaits, viruses, or malware to worry about. MyOwnVA makes your inbox efficient and stress free, because email should simply help us stay in touch without taking up precious personal time.

          CONTACT US to discuss how MyOwnVA can help you with the flood of emails so you can focus on whats important.
