Is your email inbox getting fuller by the second? Are you double-booking client meetings? Is your monthly bookkeeping only completed every 6 months? At the Virtual Gurus we have all worked with clients who were having difficulty managing their day-to-day business tasks and understand how to get you and your business organized for success. Finding the perfect virtual assistant to support you and your business is easy. Let’s take you through the process and show you how to find the perfect virtual assistant through the Virtual Gurus Marketplace.

Step 1: Determine the reason (or reasons) you are in need of a virtual assistant.

Make a list of all of the tasks you need taken care of and what skills and technical knowledge are required to complete them. Do you need someone who is an expert in social media and digital marketing? Or, do you need a quick typer who excels with data entry tasks?

Step 2: Pick your personality type.

Once you’ve created your list of tasks and hard skills, think about the type of virtual assistant you would like to work with – their personality, their attitude, their time management abilities. Soft skills are as equally important as hard skills. Make sure you have an idea of what type of virtual assistant would work best with your personality type and with your team. Do you want someone who is independent and resourceful? Or, is the type of work you are delegating to them best done with clear and specific instructions?

Step 3: Head over to our marketplace.

Once you’ve got your list of required hard and soft skills, with your required tasks clearly defined, head over to the Virtual Gurus marketplace, select the type of support you need, how many hours you require, and start exploring your support options in our extensive database.

Step 4: Read the bios and get to know our virtual assistants.

Each of our virtual assistants have their very own bio which highlights their strengths, their previous work experience, their academic experience, hard and soft skills, and unique qualities that make them stand out. We have virtual assistants who have bilingual and trilingual capabilities in various languages as well as those who are proficient in American Sign Language.

Step 5: Be aware of the details.

Take note of the virtual assistant bios of location of the assistant, the schedule for which they are available, their top skills (make sure they match your list), and the match percentage (this will be able to tell you if they are a strong candidate for the work you need).

Step 6: Select the assistant you would like to work with or request a consultation to discuss your unique needs further.

Simply select the assistant you would like to work with or hit the “request a consultation” button if you require more information about our team. One of our Client Success Managers will be able to match you with the perfect assistant for your business.
