HIRE YOUR VERY OWN HOUSTON VIRTUAL ASSISTANT!
What is a Houston Virtual Assistant or Houston Cloud Staffing?
A Houston Virtual Assistant is an individual or company that finishes a range of administrative, web, and computer system work essentially. This suggests that they complete the work from their workplace and send it to their customer via email, web link, postal mail, or fax. Communication is primarily done through e-mail and phone, with many Virtual Assistants never satisfying their client face to face.
Who utilizes a Virtual Assistant?
Anyone can. Real Estate agents, coaches, non-profit, churches, Auto Repair shop, small company owners, and huge corporations are a few that can take advantage of the services of a Virtual Assistant. The benefit of a Virtual Assistant is that they can be utilized on an “as-needed” basis, or a customer can contract them to work many hours a month.
How can they complete my work without being in my office?
The power of innovation allows work to be done from anywhere. Some Virtual Assistants can connect their computer to a client’s and work directly on the client’s computer. Other choices are to send out work by means of email, postal mail, as well as put it on the web and have customers download it. Depending on the task, a Virtual Assistant can find a way to finish the work and make sure the client gets it.
How is a Virtual Assistant more beneficial than someone in my office?
The primary benefits of a Virtual Assistant to someone in a workplace are monetary and space. A typical workplace worker makes $43.54/ hour (United States Bureau of Labor Statistics March, 2003) with their benefits bundle and wage. By the time an in-office worker takes breaks, lunch, washroom breaks, and chatting with others in the office, think of just how much money is squandered! A Virtual Assistant will charge their client ONLY for the time spent working on the job and they pay their own advantages.
The other benefit is space. Having another individual in an office suggests somewhere to put another desk, computer system, and other office equipment required by that staff member (plus the expense of all this devices and upkeep). Virtual Assistants Companies provide their own work area, computer, devices, upkeep, etc. In addition, a lot of Virtual Assistants will cover the expense of materials, which for an employee, the employer must also offer. When adding up these expenses, the Virtual Assistant comes out as a far cheaper option.
How do I know that I can trust the hours they charge and that they won’t share my personal info?
Most Virtual Assistants utilize some sort of software to track their time in and out. At Clark Outsourcing we take care of the scheduling and hour management for you.
All Virtual Assistants have their own preference of software and management company they prefer to use, however all work under the very same ethics that they charge only for time invested dealing with a project. They won’t charge you for their lunch break, or the call that came in from another customer.
As for sharing a customer’s business information, clients need to be sure to have an agreement in place that ensures their business secrets and details will not be shared. Numerous Virtual Assistants have “niched” a market, and this leads to them having competing clients. With an agreement in place, they can not share a customer’s information or utilize it to assist another client. And to speak realistically on this, if a Virtual Assistant did this, they would lose the faith and trust of clients, which would lead to the failure of their company. So, it is not to their advantage to share a client’s details. But, to protect themselves, clients need to be sure to sign a personal privacy stipulation in an agreement.
Just how much do they charge?
The general cost varieties from $5 to $50+ per hour depending upon the services asked for and the Virtual Assistants experience and degree. Many Virtual Assistants use a “retainer plan” for those clients that want to devote to a specific variety of hours monthly. With a retainer strategy, a client can get a discount rate on hourly rates.
How do I tackle finding a Virtual Assistant that is a “match” for me?
A client needs to find a Virtual Assistant that specific niches in their area of know-how and that offers the services they require. Some clients find it beneficial to have 2 or 3 Virtual Assistants that have various locations of know-how. The most essential thing in discovering a Virtual Assistant is not cost, and even area of knowledge, however do you match well? Do you have the very same work principles? Do you have characters that will work well together? Finding someone you feel comfortable with is the most crucial because a Virtual Assistant will become your partner in service and will assist your business end up being even more effective.

“We recently started purchasing services from The Lead Tree and Clark Outsourcing. Our sales teams had a chance to go over each lead and within the past 3 months our closing ratio was over 40%. Prior to The Lead Tree and Clark Outsourcing, we have tested at least 20 other lead sources and was disappointed with the ratio of quality vs. quantity. They also separated themselves from the competition by not promising us what they could not come deliver, but instead blew us out of the water with the real results. We are currently working to ramp up my volume to 500+ leads a week. We would recommend this company to anyone who wants to work with professionals.”

“Being a new company with a limited budget I inquired into plenty of telemarketing companies. I found The Lead Tree and have been using them since November 2005. The quality of the leads has been very good. Most of the clients recall the conversation with the telemarketer and are very willing to give you the remaining information to complete their load application. I especially like how they get a time to call the client back which makes my job easier. The Lead Tree delivery system makes it easy for me to pull my leads right away and hand them out to my loan officers. I would recommend The Lead Tree to anyone who is interested in finding a source for telemarketed leads.”
“I have been affiliated with Lead Tree for over a year. Their leads have been good quality and I’ve ALWAYS made money on them. My customer service rep is the best – he always takes care of me. I’ve tried lots of other lead generation companies and Lead Tree has been one of the best for me. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality, dependable leads.”
