Home-based Virtual Assistant or VA Team: Which Should You Choose?

by Richard Cantrall in Admin Support, Services

 

So how do you know which VA to hire? All virtual assistants provide technical and administrative support to big and small business owners from a remote location. Some provide this support from a home office and some are part of a team working for a VA company. Which should you hire?

A home-based virtual assistant has lower overhead costs and may be able to provide services at the lowest price. A virtual assistant team like MyOwnVA.com may cost a little more but offers significant advantages. Before making the decision, ask yourself some questions.

Can you be sure that the work is done in a timely manner?

You won’t see the actual work in progress; the VA manages his or her own time. Only when the results are delivered can you see that your VA was worth the money you spent. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find someone you can trust to accomplish your tasks without having to worry about supervising him or her. Maybe you won’t be so fortunate.

What happens during downtimes or if there’s a power outage? Does the VA have the proper tools to complete the task? Is the VA properly trained?

A home-based VA works alone. They have no one to turn to during downtimes and power outages. They have no one to troubleshoot important tools required to complete a task. And, they have no one to provide proper one-on-one training to complete the task in the manner that you require.

That is where MyOwnVA comes in. We are a VA company that hires assistants who work in our offices. Our virtual assistant staff report to work daily on a set schedule. We monitor our VAs to ensure that tasks are completed properly and on time because we understand that every single task could impact the success of your business. We provide the necessary supervision and equipment — computers, software tools, high-speed fibr internet connection and uninterrupted power supply — to ensure that there’s no unfinished work.

With MyOwnVA, you can rest assured that you are working with a company that has a fully equipped facility. Our in-house virtual assistants work in an ideal working environment so they can perform tasks such as calling your customers without unnecessary background noise. The same cannot be said of a home-based environment where the VA can easily be distracted by family members or loud neighbors.

At our company, we ensure quality of work and scheduled completion of each task through the use of the most updated and advanced software and technology. The following are just some of our advantages:

  • Our VAs are full-time professionals and all of them are university-educated
  • We offer high-speed fiber business internet at a minimum of 100 Mbps
  • We use newer desktops (i5 or i7) with licensed software
  • We provide an office environment free of distractions and noise
  • Our project managers provide quality checks
  • We train backup VAs in case something happens to your primary virtual office assistant.
  • We provide you with access to a team of specialists in graphics, photo editing, web development, video, and animation
  • Our team receives regular training in WordPress, SEO, Adobe Creative Suite, etc
  • We invest in solid tools for virtual employee tracking to ensure time is being spent properly and productively.
