What is a Virtual Work Partner?

Virtual Work Partners (sometimes Virtual Assistants) are entrepreneurs, highly skilled SMEs (subject matter experts)  in their professions, providing solid benefits to the bottom lines of those they assist.   We possess the solid core competencies necessary to provide our clients with the supportive insights and techniques needed by entrepreneurs, small business owners and non-profit organizations to improve their processes, accelerate their development and succeed in our ever changing world. 

Work assignments are communicated through e-mail,  phone, fax, mail, usb key and Internet Web based collaborative technology (Intranets and windows messenger live).

Who needs a VWP ?

Busy executives and entrepreneurs working in a foreign country, can enjoy access to all of the support benefits of a VWP. New business startups, small companies with more limited resources, large companies with  periodic projects and sales people desiring the personal touch are all examples of potential clients of a Virtual Work Partner.

Are all telecommuters Virtual Assistants and VWPs?

No.  Just like all administrative assistants are not executive assistants.  Virtual Work Partners are leading edge professionals in the VA industry.  They are creative and innovative lifelong learners with outstanding core competencies in:

  • Technology Management and how it can be used to erase geographical boundaries while improving your work processes
  • Problem Solving for your unique administrative challenges
  • Strategic Thinking that will provide you with keys to success, for growth of your business

VWPs are influencers, negotiators and managers who play key roles as you identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats surrounding your company

How much does a VWP cost?

The cost varies from $30 -100 an hour and up, depending on the projects or partnering agreements and the credentials of your VWP.  Since VWPs are subject matter experts in their areas of expertise, training and ramp up time is virtually eliminated.  You only pay for the actual time that you utilize the services of your VWP, in a minimum of fifteen minute increments.

Can't I hire an employee for less?

When you work with a Virtual Work Partner, you can expect:

  • No office equipment to purchase.
  • No training or supervision necessary.
  • Social Security and payroll taxes are eliminated. 
  • You will only pay for the time that you use.

Check the salary wizard to find the average salary for an employee in your area.   That won't include employer taxes and benefits, equipment, overhead and so forth.  Most VAs will fall into the category of "Office Manager" because of their level of expertise.
