Client Success Stories

Success stories powered by the help of a Virtual Assistant.

We work closely with entrepreneurs and busy professionals from forward-thinking businesses to help them successfully create and launch new digital platforms, products and services. Read a few success stories on how these companies have used the help of a Virtual Assistant (or in some cases, two) to propel their business to new heights.

Mike del Ponte

Founder & CEO of Soma Water

Soma has designed the world’s best water… for you and 800 million people in need.

Soma is a premium water filter service that includes a beautiful glass carafe and the world’s most innovative water filters, which are delivered right to your door via subscription so you never forget to change your filter on time.

Well before the start of our Kickstarter campaign, throughout it, and still today, our VA is an integral part of the Soma team. We created a detailed plan before the launch and incorporated our VA’s help. As we crafted each step we decided how our VA would fit in. Like every other team member our VA played a specific role in our efforts and remains an important piece of the puzzle. We couldn’t have done it without Zirtual!

Tim & Pang Chang

Growing Family; Mayfield Fund

Tim and Pang are also accomplished musicians who currently perform with CoverFlow.

Tim is a proven venture investor and experienced global executive, known for his thought leadership in Gamification, Quantified Self, and Behavioral/Social Science-led Design. He has been named to the Forbes Midas List of Top 100 Tech Investors, as one of CNET’s 12 Most Influential Tech Investors and as a Power Player West, Digital Media and Mobile Power Player by Always On.

Our VA has been terrific! She’s got a very helpful and proactive attitude, pinging us regularly to ask us what she can do for us. She has a lot of experience supporting people on the go, and with having a newborn in addition to dealing with the logistics of playing in three bands who have pretty active performance schedules, that’s where we thought Zirtual could really help us in our personal life.
