How to choose & decide the right virtual assistant services company or provider

Fundamentally, there are four types of virtual assistant companies that cater to different sets of needs. 

1) ✰ Database of Freelancers ✰

This VA company displays virtual assistant profiles for mainly part-time gigs. Prices vary per assistant.

Pros: Great for one-time, off-hand projects

Cons: Skills & experience typically not vetted by provider

2) ✰✰ Project-Based Freelancers ✰✰
This VA company attracts both virtual assistants & clients to their site, and charges a service fee.

Pros: Great for a one-time seasonal project

Cons: Skills & experience typically not vetted by provider

3) ✰✰✰ Low-cost Full-Time Provider ✰✰✰
This VA company provides full-time assistants, generally specializing in a few specific roles or industries.

Pros: An affordable alternative to a traditional employee

Cons: Limited to a few roles and responsibilities, and lower value tasks.

4) ✰✰✰✰ Strategic Outsourcing Partner ✰✰✰✰

This virtual assistant services company (such as MyOutDesk) consults & caters to each client’s needs and addresses growth opportunities through outsourcing business processes with specific expertise serving multiple industries. They provide services, starting from just one virtual assistant, for up to an entire enterprise workforce.

On the client side, the VA company provides a thorough talent-matching process, background checks, full-time client support, business process optimization tools, and business strategy consultations.

On the VA side, the company offers company perks such as professional development, health benefits, and holidays.

Pros: As affordable as all other VA services. Greatest quality of professional skill sets in a competitive talent pool. A powerful model for businesses looking to scale up. Hybridized physical-virtual (blended) organizational strategy allows local employees to focus on higher value tasks.

Cons: Not ideal for one-time projects.

As not all virtual assistant providers are created equal, businesses need to consider and choose the provider would best serve their needs.

Cost: MyOutDesk can save you up to 70% on employment costs with experienced virtual assistant professionals. To book an interview with those in MyOutDesk’s competitive talent pool, click here
