Some can afford to pay a competent person but do not have a working office space because of overheads. In a time ridden with such problems and many more Virtually Managed provide a solution.

    I’m surprised there are no comments.
    It’s an interesting idea but not sure about the rest easy bit when giving a stranger (whom you will likely never meet?) access to your livelihood and affairs. (Much paranoid, oui)

    If, as pointed out, cost is an issue, the retainership cost isn’t even hinted at. Kai, incomplete ..

      We use softwares such as LastPass. With this you do not have to give your personal details if you don’t want to. We also have a Premium Plan (stated on the website) that allows you to see your VA, so you do have physical contact if you wish.

      Different individuals have different needs and we work closely to what best suits you.

      Some people choose to use a VA part time eg. Sign up for 2 months, end contract, sign up again when they need support. It is a flexible service and there is retainer based on the plan you choose and scope of work.

      Hope this addresses some of your concerns.

      Thank You.

        I am very business needs to be hop on the social media band wagon but I am not a huge fan of it and it’s holding me back big time.

    This is a brilliant idea and quite useful. Full time jobs are gradually becoming a myth, so pple shud face the future. It wud be nice to give instances where they’ve worked. Bravo to this group..they’ve got insight.

    This is brilliant. It is all about efficiency. Given that your targets are SMEs you will need to do a massive campaign about your value propositions. How consistently efficient and trust are going to be the two main concern or edge that will either deny or bring you more businesses.

      Thank You for the feedback. Notes taken @ForTheRightsOfMen

    Sounds nice but that is just too much power to give an outsider. That is practically the sme’s social blueprint in your staff’s hand. What if one of your staff quits and decides to lock up my website and email hosting source or hacks my virtual system and blackmails me into paying for my company’s freedom? What measures do you have in lace to prevent such eventualities ?

    • Virtually Managed February 19, 2016 at 5:27 pm

      Hello Nadia,

      Clients do not have to give passwords if they do not wish to, we use LastPass. There are a number of softwares available to VA’s. Integrity is a core value and there are standards in place, not all access is required or given Different clients, different needs.

      Thank you for the question, important for growth.

    For those who want to join as VA’s what is the process and what are your requirements pls?

  • pretty February 24, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    it is a nice idea, but nooooo. I cant let a virtual/ an outsider privy to mails and all that, human beings are dynamic, the virtual assistant who would want to make extra cash might be thinking of selling out your secret point, selling strength and all info he has got to competitors, aint doing ooooo. this is naija…… anything can happen

    • Virtually Managed March 2, 2016 at 4:00 pm

      Hello Pretty,

      Different customers, different needs. Your VA doesn’t have access to your passwords because of softwares in place. You choose what you need a VA for, some clients choose research, some request a physical VA 3 times a month (premium plan), some for social media, some for scheduling. Please note, not all requests are accepted Eg. If you own a store and need to raise an order from your manufacturer or supplier, we wont order directly for you, we wont contact your supplier etc so your business is protected. It’s not about taking, its about providing support.

      Thanks for your comment, always good for growth.
