My Virtual Assistant Opens ‘Virtual Doors’

My Virtual Assistant recently opened its ‘virtual doors’ to help businesses who are drowning in paperwork.

More and more companies are realising the need to outsource work and let a virtual assistant help out when things get busy, so they can focus on what they do best… running their business.

It doesn't matter whether you are an individual, small business owner, part of a large corporation, or even where you are located in New Zealand, if you have a 'one off' project or need help with regular on-going assignments, My Virtual Assistant is available to take care of the details, so you don’t have to.

“It’s all about respecting client’s needs and maintaining standards,” says Marion Jackson, owner and operator of a new online, home-based company, My Virtual Assistant – Your Online Personal Assistant Service.

“Many companies require extra help at various times throughout the year, whether it’s for a specific project or on-going assignments and this is when hiring a Virtual Assistant is ideal. Plus the location of a company isn’t an issue and that’s the beauty of ‘virtual’ assistance, because everything is done online.”

Extremely popular in the USA, UK and Australia, Virtual Assistants (VA’s as they commonly referred to) provide assistance to businesses who cannot afford or do not have enough work to sustain an in-house worker.

“It makes sense to hire a VA right now, especially during these economic times, what with redundancies being made and companies having to keep costs down”, says Ms Jackson.

Hiring a VA means you have access to an off-site, independent contractor who will save significant costs in employee salaries, staff benefits and office space.

‘My Virtual Assistant’ ultimately offers the benefits of office support without the significant cost of employing an extra member of staff. Tailored to suit the needs of clients, ‘My Virtual Assistant’ provides a range of services, including word processing, travel reservations, proof reading, research, marketing, etc. For more information, visit
