I have been working online for around 5 years now, and I have done everything from your basic jobs like Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Data Mining, Virtual Assistant (VA) Tasks, and Social Media Marketing to more unusual jobs and projects like game testing, online voice lessons and video voice-overs. Of all the people I have encountered and of all the kinds of people I have been able to work with, I have to say that MyOutdesk.com (MOD) is one of the best I have ever encountered.
One of the most difficult things about being a Virtual Assistant is communication. Many times, many clients will expect the people they hire online to give them everything they want exactly as they want it without outlining how to get that done. A well seasoned online professional will always have an arsenal of tools and knowledge of many different things; however mind reading is not one of them. I have been fired many a time because a client was not happy with the work I have done, granted, I am only human, I can say that I will take full responsibility for some client’s dissatisfaction, but to be perfectly honest, most of the time I find that it is because a client failed to tell me certain key pieces of information. Thus bringing frustration to all parties involved. This is one thing that the My Outdesk team fights against. Even before a potential client interviews one of the VA of MOD, the management team makes sure that the VA is aware of the tasks they will be handling if the client does agree to take them on, if that happens, MOD does not just leave the VA and the client to fend for themselves, which bring me to my next key point.
