Here at Get Ahead VA we are privileged to work with a wide variety of clients ranging from will writers to window cleaners, financial consultants to fashion designers. All of our clients are motivated and driven business owners, with clear plans for business growth. They recognise the value of outsourcing, passing onto others tasks that either they lack skills in, or tasks that drain their valuable time.
Here’s 60 seconds with one of our clients Michael from Clark Benefit Consulting (http://www.clarkbenefitconsulting.co.uk/) who found the personal service of Get Ahead VA really fitted with his company ethos:
What situation was your business in when you came to Get Ahead VA? Whilst I was busy in front of clients I was having to rely on answerphones to pick up messages. With no admin support I was having to do everything myself - including writing up minutes of meetings.
What problems were you experiencing? I never had enough time. I was busy doing the wrong jobs and not being able to grow the business. I knew that this was not the public face I wanted the business to project to existing and potential clients.
What might have happened if you hadn’t taken any action? Opportunities would have been lost and I would still be a rotten typist!
How did Get Ahead VA help solve the problem for you? The telephone answering service with a friendly ‘Clark Benefit Consulting’ answer means that callers speak to another human being rather than to a machine. This supports our business strapline of ‘Refreshingly Informal, Intensely Professional’. We also use Get Ahead VA for secretarial support which has been invaluable in freeing up time to use for other business needs. Thankfully they type a whole lot quicker than I do!
Why did you choose a VA and not a part time member of staff? The nature of the tasks means that it’s not a part time role at this time. By outsourcing to Get Ahead VA we only pay for what we need and that flexibility is what makes the service so effective for us.
What has this meant to you and your business? It was created time and efficiencies which enable me to get on with other jobs which create greater value to the business.
