Where to look for self employed Virtual Assistants for your small business!? If you’ve ever tried to find a Virtual Assistant on Google, it’s crowded isn’t it! There are some huge agencies out there!
And there are self employed virtual assistants, just like me, ready and willing to help you in your small business.
If you are looking for a self-employed Virtual Assistant for your small business that you can build a long-term relationship with, try these places:
- VIP VA http://vipva.co.uk offer a client/VA matching service through their website. They thoroughly vet their members and only accept high performing, fully vetted self employed virtual assistants. They offer amazing support to both client and VA, as well as ongoing training opportunities for VA’s to make sure us members stay at the top of our game! (I’m a huge fan, and a member, and I love the work they do and the support they offer me as a self employed Virtual Assistant as well as small businesses looking for a virtual assistant!
- Check out The Society of Virtual Assistants. They’re a UK based non-profit society who promote self employed virtual assistants in their work, support VA’s through groups and networking and they also offer a list of accredited self employed Virtual Assistants who meet their standards. Check out their Approved VA list here (think I’m in there as Virtual Assistant No 121, so plenty to choose from!): https://www.societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk/…/find-an-app…/
- UK Association of Virtual Assistants also offer a directory and you can view listings for self employed virtual assistants for your small businesses split by area, it is purely a listing service – www.ukava.co.uk
- There are VA accreditation and non-profit VA associations all over the world and if you are not in the UK there will be one in your time zone. The IVAA.org is U.S. based but has worldwide reach. And there’s the AVAA in Australia.
- Have you thought of asking in any online business groups you’re a member of? I bet there are self employed Virtual Assistants within them. We’re all business owners so any marketing, branding, business finance, customer service, social media etc etc groups you’re in will probably have virtual assistants within them. I’m in lots of business groups, paid and unpaid, where I can keep up to date in the areas I work in (social media, online courses, general support, PDF forms, proofreading etc).
Now as luck would have it, I currently have space in my VA diary for a retainer client. So, if you would love to stop your search right here, and you want me to be the self employed virtual assistant who saves you time, supports you in your business and eases that stress of ‘how am I ever going to get all this work done’, do get in touch!
