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 Frank from S3 Logistics (www.s3-logistics.co.uk) who has found the flexible Get Ahead VA resource vital to helping him establish his new business.
What situation was your business in when you came to Get Ahead VA?
It was about 6 months since I had started my business. I had completed the basics of getting a logo designed and a website up and running. Procedures were in place but I wasn’t sure how to grow my client base and that’s why I turned to Get Ahead VA for their assistance in guiding me on how to move forward.
What problems were you experiencing?
I had lots of ideas but none of the expertise to put them into action. I would look at other courier companies and get inspiration for how I wanted to look and sound different. I knew what I wanted to say but I didn’t feel able to convey that message in the professional and persuasive way I needed.
What might have happened if you hadn’t taken any action?
We wouldn’t be where we are now! The business would probably still be at base 1, thinking about how to move forwards to the next level.
How did Get Ahead VA help solve the problem for you?
Get Ahead VA has been a real partner for my business. Having seen them on Twitter, I gave Rebecca a call to see if she could help. Rebecca really took time to listen to what I wanted. She then selected the right VA to complete various projects for me including copy writing for email marketing and telemarketing. Get Ahead VA have solved my problem and enabled my business to move forwards in the right direction.
Why did you choose a VA and not a part time member of staff?
I have ad hoc requirements across different types of projects so it makes much more financial sense to outsource and be able to use Get Ahead VA’s services as and when I need them.
What has this meant to you and your business?
Get Ahead VA have delivered peace of mind for me, knowing that people are doing a professional job on my behalf. The team have come up with things I had not thought of, using their experience and their external point of view to deliver advice, enabling us to make some sound business decisions and move forwards in the right direction.
