Are you becoming increasing bogged down with an ever growing pile of paperwork? Your business should be growing, not your pile of administrative tasks!

Is this what you envisaged your daily workload would entail when you imagined yourself running your own business. A business idea usually conquers up images of conducting tasks which the business owner enjoys doing. When a business idea comes into fruition you should be using your skills and talents to benefit your business and not the business of an employer?

This is where we come in and we can appear like your fairy god mother and wave our magic wand! We won’t turn you into Cinderella but we can make your paperwork disappear.

Can you imagine what an effect it will have on your business? At a minimal cost you can out-source your administrative tasks to Virtual Business Support and concentrate on what you do best – growing your business. You skills are better utilised in other areas and by doing so, the benefits will be limitless.

Gone are the days when Secretaries were housed next to their Manager’s office and were called in to sit in front of their boss’s desk to take shorthand.

Secretarial Services are now being offered to businesses from a ‘virtual office’. Secretaries and Administrators have their own office which is usually home based with all the latest equipment and technology in which you would find in any modern office.

It is a concept that is growing and as companies are seeing the many benefits it provides, for instance, only paying for the time it takes to do a task, saving on holiday and sick allowances, superannuation and not having to pay their secretary to have a chat to their colleague about a television programme they watched the previous night, more and more companies are seeking the help of a Virtual Assistant.

It is no longer necessary for a Secretary, Personal Assistant or Administrator to be right next door to their Manager. Most communication, even in an office in this day and age, is done via email, therefore what difference does it make that your Secretary is sitting in an office on the other side of the world?

Virtual Assistants are becoming increasingly popular with small businesses who cannot justify employing a full-time administrator and other headaches associating with recruiting, training and supervision.

Virtual Business Support is a virtual secretarial service based on the Gold Coast, Australia. Its owner, Karen Talbot has over 20 years experience in administration and is qualified to Diploma, level 5 in Management. Its client base is constantly growing due to the variety of high quality services it provides and the Virtual Assistant’s professionalism and reliability. No job for Virtual Business Support is too big or too small.

Hiring a Virtual Assistant allows you to focus and grow your business while reducing your overheads.

A Virtual Assistant can provide most of the services of on-site administration staff; however they do so from their own home office.

You can request the services of a remote Virtual Assistant for as many hours as you require them. They work as an independent contractor, therefore you have no costs associated with employing a member of staff such as recruitment costs, office equipment and furniture, utilities including telephone costs, holiday pay, superannuation, holiday cover, sickness allowance, over-time costs, breaks and lunches and idle time.

You only pay for the time spent on your work and this is broken down in 15 minute increments so you will see how much time is spent on each task. We use software which allows us to time each task and this is printed as a time sheet and issued along with our invoice.

Entrepeneurs, associations, professionals and executives are seeking the help of Virtual Assistants to allow them to spend time growing their business. Why spend time doing paperwork when you can use your expertise and time more wisely?

If you already employ administrative staff and they need assistance, you can hire a VA to alleviate their workload for as long as you wish. Some temporary agencies insist on a minimum of 4 hours work and you may not receive the help of the same temp each time. By using our services, for short adhoc assignments, we can build on our relationship which will give you the confidence to delegate more and more responsibility, therefore taking the stress away from you. If you need our services for a limited amount of time each month, for example, to organise travel arrangements, general secretarial services, payroll duties or marketing, we can offer a retainer so we will keep this time free to service your business during this time.

Our company is a member of a variety of VA networks, therefore in the unlikely event that there are any tasks outside of our area of expertise, we can promptly find another Virtual Assistant who can service your needs.
All work is guaranteed to meet or exceed your expectations and we endeavour to meet all deadlines set by our clients.

We provide a prompt, professional and accurate service to ensure you continue to be associated with our business and recommend our services to your associates.

  • Recruitment costs

With advances in technology and the Internet, the Virtual Assistant was created. Virtual Assistants take advantage of modern equipment and communicate electronically with their clients. These clients can be just around the corner or on the other side of the world.

There is no need for the small business owner or large organisation to struggle with their overload of administrative tasks any longer. A Virtual Assistant is the answer and more and more businesses are becoming aware of this fact and taking advantage.

Lets first look at the small business owner, they are usually trying to build an empire while juggling mundane necessary paperwork. This is not only having a detrimental effect on the growth of their business but is preventing the entrepreneur from doing what he does best and utilising his skills and talents on growing his business. After all he didn't set up his 'landscape gardening' business to sit at home every evening and weekends doing paperwork. Once these necessary but time-consuming tasks are taken away from the small business owner, the world is their oyster.

The same applies to the medium to large organisation, there are always instances where there are staff shortages due to illness and holidays or a member of staff may be overloaded or have an impossible deadline to meet.

We can offer any administrative task from our virtual office. You can contact us electronically (just like you probably would email your PA in the office next door). It can be a permanent arrangement whereby a VA can retain a portion of their time to service a particular client or it can be an ad hoc assignment when things get manic in an office.

We have 20 years experience in administration and management therefore you can feel confident knowing that your tasks will be performed accurately and professionally.

Just think how much time you could save on delegating these tasks and how your time could be better spent! Visit our website to find out how
