Looking for full-service high-end Virtual Assistant Company


I'm looking for Virtual Assistance. However rather than an individual who can do low-level personal tasks like find a present for my wife, I'm looking for a full-service company that can do a wide range of business and technical functions. I want people who can think, and do advanced business and technical tasks.

This is for potentially a lot of the tasks involved in launching my startup, and also for my technical consulting work.

These tasks might be things like:

  • Performing Business Research and compiling a report
  • Preparing Competitor Analysis for a web application topic.
  • Finding and Managing Outsourced Developers on specific tasks
  • Compiling a guide on how to migrate a PHP app to the cloud
  • Performing complex Excel Analysis or processing.
  • Apply some great visual design to Word, Excel or powerpoint documents
  • Convert a mindmap into a powerpoint presentation

Basically I find I have so many tasks, I want to be able to shoot off emails to one address, and know that I am going to get some kind of quality response. A single general assistant may forward on specialist jobs to specialists.

A company specialising in providing services to Startups would be ideal, though not necessarily expected.

Brickworks was mentioned in Four-Hour Work Week, anybody have experiences with them, or have any other recommendations in this area?

You have some illusions waht a virtual assitant can provide.

•Finding and Managing Outsourced Developers on specific tasks

Virtual PROJECT MANAGEMENT from a virtual assistant position? I suggest you look for a proejct manager offshore / freelancer for thais. This is not normal secretarial stuff.

•Compiling a guide on how to migrate a PHP app to the cloud

What about he WRIOTE PHP? Getting more unrealistic?

•Performing complex Excel Analysis or processing.

Like your secretary would? THis is stuff for a master of mathematics / statistics, or very specialized. People earn a lot of money for being able to do that. Unlewss naturally your and my definition of "complex analysis / processing" is different.

•Apply some great visual design to Word, Excel or powerpoint documents

Again, a virtual Assistant will not be a full time designer.

Seriously, half what you say makes sense, but all those points are not something I wold ever expect from a virtual assistant.

  • The question is specifically about full-service high-end virtual assistant companies. There are companies out there that are seeking to provide higher-level skilled staff. Brickwork India being the best known, however I've seen others. Some of the listed tasks are maybe a bit too advanced, but that's what this question is trying to do: gather experiences and recommendations on a range of VA offerings that isn't often explored. – Nicholas 13 years ago
