I see this request on the web in many places with discussions on forums and articles written on blogs by people who have little knowledge of our industry. They’ve heard the term or read about it in books but have no idea where to look.
I don’t know about you but I always think ‘Google’ whenever I want to look something up. A search on “Virtual Assistants” at Google will bring up several VA networks and forums, as well as individual VA sites. But I know it’s hard to weed through and know the right place to go to.
Perhaps searching on the service you need will produce better results for you. Such as “secretarial support” for those who need more traditional type of support.
But for those who don’t want to do all those searches, then contacting a virtual assistant network direct is the best option. You can simply fill out their joblead or request for proposal form and have the VAs contact you direct with their ability to meet your needs, give you turnaround time and their rates and it saves you having to work out who to contact.
You can find a list of VA organisations here.
