Frequently Asked Questions

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent contractor who helps take care of the administrative and technical side of your business or personal life.

VAs work from their own offices or home and use their own equipment and software.  A VA can help with any task or project, traditionally handled by an on-site employee or yourself.

A successful VA will have multiple clients and is continually updating their knowledge, skills, and technology to deliver a superior service.

VAs are subcontractors who are only paid for the hours required to perform each task.  Since I am not an employee, you do not pay for breaks, lunches, holidays and benefits.

These are just some of the cost-effective benefits of working with a VA.

When you’re running a small business, or have a very busy family, I know the pressure can feel overwhelming.  There are never enough hours in the day.

With my help, you will be back in control.  My clients enjoy efficient and cost-effective business and lifestyle management.  Whether for a one-off task or regular support, to cover for holidays or to help out during a peak time, Virtually Brighter can help.

Time is precious – I free yours up to allow you to do what you do best.

I offer a range of flexible support services and can tackle everything from the complex to the tedious.

I work remotely, providing various services to entrepreneurs, small business owners or families – from business administration to digital support and social media management.

Everything you don’t have the time, inclination or knowledge to handle.

I’m committed to delivering to the agreed deadlines. 

Turnaround time can depend on the complexity and urgency of the project or tasks at hand.

For time sensitive requirements, the deadline will be agreed upon before the work begins.

  • As you only pay for what you use, a VA can be more cost effective.
  • Delegation of repetitive tasks allows you to concentrate on what matters.
  • You need a person with the desired skill set to finish the task within deadlines.
  • You must spend time on the other priorities.
  • Greater availability.  I can be available Local candidates have set time durations, while a VA can be hired from different time zones.
  • VA can help in market research, E-mail management, seeking appointments, answering calls, search engine optimization, content writing, and so much more.

Virtual assistants are an important part of the modern business and family scenario. Consequently, a virtual assistant’s capabilities, skill set, and scope of work have increased manifold in today’s times.

A VA can take tasks off your plate that aren’t necessarily big projects but are part of the day-to-day operations, such as answering emails, scheduling meetings, creating social media posts, engaging with your audience, organising travels, etc. A VA can handle these tasks so you can continue with essential projects.

Startups and small business owners usually have fewer resources than larger and established businesses. After all, there’s a lot of work to do when you’re starting a business! I know that very well as a business owner! It can be overwhelming at times.

Unfortunately, there’s only so much you can do in a day. Many startup teams often struggle with time management. It’s also essential to give you and your team regular time off to recharge and avoid burnout, consequently, less productive.

Hiring a virtual assistant can help address some of these startup issues. Hiring a virtual assistant usually costs less compared to onsite employees. 

You can outsource a wide range of tasks to help lighten your team’s load without spending much money. That way, your personal life doesn’t have to be sacrificed to your business.

Before you begin the hiring process, knowing what you need help with is important. It’s helpful to list down all of the tasks or outcomes you want to delegate to your VA.

If you can, prepare a detailed job description. Having clear expectations from the get-go will help facilitate the hiring process. 

If you’re hiring a freelance virtual assistant, you’ll need to take charge of the arrangements and structures, the phone interview, and the whole application process.

After sending an inquiry to Virtually Brighter, I will contact you to schedule a meeting. I’ll try to get a good sense of your needs during the meeting. On top of that, I can help you to continue providing the support needed through the entire onboarding process. 

The cost of a VA is always an important topic when considering hiring one. However, you need to remember that when you pay a VA, you are only paying for the work that gets done. You aren’t paying for holidays, sickness, national insurance, tea breaks, coffees, or for them to surf the net and check Facebook and Instagram! You are getting years of experience, a passion for what they do, a consistently high standard of work, and their complete focus on your business during those hours. In short, you are getting great value for money!

Yes, your virtual assistant can definitely help you with social media management. They can schedule posts, monitor engagement, and even create content for your platforms. However, it’s important to make sure your virtual assistant has experience and knowledge in social media management to ensure they are effective in their role. You can save time and streamline your social media strategy with the right virtual assistant.

Contracting a social media manager can be hugely beneficial for your business. A skilled social media manager can help you build brand awareness, increase customer engagement, and drive sales. They can also help protect your company’s reputation by monitoring and responding to customer feedback and addressing any negative comments or reviews. In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential, and a social media manager can help you achieve that. By creating and executing a well-planned social media strategy, they can help you stand out in a competitive market, attract new customers, and build a loyal following. A social media manager can be a valuable asset to any business looking to succeed in today’s digital landscape.

Nope. Clients, rarely, if ever, go in and post once they become a client. Social Media Management services are designed so I take over your social media accounts, and you can get back to doing what you do best, running your business or getting on with what is important for your life. Of course, you can go in and post if you want to.

I create a social media strategy, including crafting content to promote your brand, products and services, text and visual content. As a client, you do not create content. All of the content is created for you. I can integrate your content into your posting schedule if you have existing content that you like and that has worked for you.

Creating a social media strategy involves several steps.  The first step is to define your goals and objectives.  What do you want to achieve through social media?  Do you want to increase brand awareness, drive website traffic, or generate leads?

Once you have defined your goals, I can identify your target audience and determine which social media platforms are best for you.  From there, I can create a content plan that aligns with your goals and resonates with your target audience.

The content plan should include a mix of different types of content, including text, images, and videos.  It’s important to be consistent with the posting schedule and to engage with the audience by responding to comments and messages.

Finally, I will track your results and adjust your strategy as needed based on what is working and what needs to be improved.  With a well-planned social media strategy, I can effectively help build your brand awareness and connect with your target audience.

You will know it is working by your objectives, as part of your reasons for hiring me. For example, if you want to keep up a consistent presence on social media, you’ll be able to see your profiles look consistent. If you want to sell specific products and services, you will know it’s working by the increase in phone calls and inquiries (lead generation).
