  • I think it's fairly obvious that you haven't given your question enough attention. "Customer Service" is huge; what concretely do you need *done*? How big a volume are we talking about? – Jesper Mortensen 13 years ago

You can either go the Do It Yourself (DIY) or the Done For You (DFY) route.

Going the DIY route: 1) Check out Virtual Assistant Forums such as and Virtual Assistants from around the world hang out on sites like this to network and exchange ideas. You can go on there post your job request.

2) Check out Freelancing sites such as, and the great thing about sites likes this is that you can get to review the feedback left for the providers and ratings on similar work that they have completed.

3) Make use of Job Boards like and if you are specifically looking to place ads for Philippine based Virtual Assistants, check out and Just be ready for a flood of responses.

Going the DFY route: 1) Virtual Assistant Placement companies such as and for a one time fee will help you find a VA who matches your requirements and can get the job done.

2) Virtual Assistant Services Providers are firms like and (full disclosure - this is my firm) who provide Entrepreneurs with a team of Virtual Assistants and also project managers to handle all you time consuming business tasks so that you can focus on what really matters in your business.

My final point is that even though you find a Virtual Assistant to help implement the work, you have to realize that you have to monitor and manage the process so that you get the outcome you want. It's never going to be totally hands off don't believe the hype! That said when you hire the right VA, or team of VAs they will make your experience pleasant!

  • Please stop spamming this site with you services. – Ross 13 years ago
  • Owen, thanks for your contribution and time. You have a wealth of knowledge in the outsourcing arena, and you provide a lot of good information. However, a majority of your posts have links back to your site, and that is generally considered bad form on this site. We value your input, and hope to continue seeing you here, but we ask that you try to keep self-promotion to a minimum. – Zuly Gonzalez 13 years ago


There are companies that offer great customer service like or you can outsource to some it companies in India, depends on the size and your requirement
