Based on their existing skills, experience, and interests, we train our assistants even further in what clients need. With ongoing training on different tools and tasks, our Virtual Assistants are ready to get to work. Plus, they're experts in making outsourcing easy, not overwhelming.
You get one dedicated Virtual Assistant to partner up with. You don't have to deal with multiple people, or ever wonder who's doing your work. While most Virtual Assistants can handle almost any administrative tasks, if there's something special, then your Virtual Assistant can check in with their manager and other virtual assistants for help at any time. One point of contact, thousands of virtual assistant skills.
Your virtual assistant writes back in 2 hours with the task done or an estimated time of completion.
There are no long term contracts, and you can upgrade or downgrade if you need to.
We find and train only the best—we care about our clients, love our work, and enjoy helping

“Michelle has ramped up quickly to become an indispensable member of our team. She's fast to respond, learns quickly, and adapts at lightning speed to the needs of our company. She's seamlessly integrated herself into our team and magically taken on lots of responsibilities, which has freed up our time to tackle other priorities that we were never quite able to get to before she came along.”
You're not able to spend time where you should because you are bogged down with tasks like daily operations, clients, hiring, making phone calls, managing your inbox, planning and attending meetings, data entry, and 1000 other specific tasks that make time management impossible. No one is immune, from small business owners, to busy executives, from an independent contractor working on a freelance basis, to the founder of a technology company - everyone has far too many tasks, and far too little focus to meet the demands of their job description.
You're devoting yourself to your business goals, and driving success for your company. We'll pair you with the best candidate so that you can shift from time consuming task work in support of your business, to high value activities centered on your skills and expertise. No more fielding phone calls when you should be building strategic plans for your business. No more data entry when you should be analyzing the results. No more web research when all you need are the answers. You're free to do the things that matter most while your virtual assistant covers the rest.
You're not able to spend time where you should because you're constantly on high alert, putting out fires, and providing administrative support when you should be receiving it. If your "team" is just you talking to yourself about how far behind you are on a mounting list of tasks, it's time to make a change. It's time for the power of virtual assistants.
With the administrative support of a virtual assistant you are no longer fighting a mountain of tasks by yourself. You perform at your peak while virtual assistants perform tasks that save time, money, and sanity. Virtual assistants make it possible to do it all, without having to do it all alone.
If you've never had a personal assistant or virtual assistant before, you probably have a lot of questions. Here are the most common questions people ask us when looking for virtual assistant services.
With a virtual assistant from Zirtual, you can save anywhere 5 to 15 hours per week. You’ll save even more time than your assistant clocks-in because they are so experienced in administrative support and can typically handle them faster than you can.
Our community (small businesses, executives, founders, middle management, busy parents and the list goes on) usually hand off their inbox and calendar management first because these are sneaky time killers. Once delegated to your virtual assistant, you get time back in your day immediately, and perpetually. But, you can start with whatever task or project is most pressing or distracting.
Virtual assistants perform an incredibly wide variety of tasks. Common tasks are things like inbox management, social media management, scheduling of all sorts, bookkeeping and other recordkeeping, price comparisons, product research, and the list goes on - for a more comprehensive list of common tasks - click here and click around on all the "what we do" sections. But, a virtual assistant can also help with less obvious things like supporting a job search by looking for appropriate openings, submitting your resume, sending cover letters, and booking the interview. Let your imagination run wild - Zirtual virtual assistants are creative, flexible, and fast learners and can help anyone from a small business to large companies, and individuals to executives.
If you want to work with a smart, experienced, freelance virtual assistant who is trained and ready to help you, who lives in the US, and has a college degree, then you should choose Zirtual for your virtual assistance needs. Our account managers do an excellent job of pairing you up with just the right person for your specific virtual assistance needs. We also manage your virtual assistant’s workload so you enjoy consistent availability. With 2-hour response times, working with a Zirtual virtual assistant instead of a basic virtual assistant is key to getting the most from virtual assistance.
That all depends on how you go about the hiring process. Just under half of our clients tried hiring a virtual assistant themselves before coming to Zirtual. Rather than deal with the hassle of writing a job description, posting it to social media, interviewing dozens of candidates, assessing their skills, their experiences, and trying to determine if they are the right assistant for the job, paying a virtual assistant salary and associated taxes, they found it easier to simply let Zirtual handle the process. Hiring a virtual assistant is something most people have never done before, but we've done thousands of times. Leave the business of finding the perfect administrative assistant to Zirtual. Remember, the whole point is staying focused on what makes you amazing. We've got the experience to hire a virtual assistant that's perfect for you.
The short answer is; before you need one. The more common answer of when people actual hire a virtual assistant is when you realize you are spending your valuable time tasks that are necessary, but not critical and don't take advantage of your specific skills! A virtual executive assistant can turn a hectic, always just a bit behind schedule life into a hyper-productive, highly focused success story in very little time.
No, your Virtual Assistant can help you with all sorts of personal tasks as well. From booking travel arrangements for the annual family vacation to ordering flowers for a special occasion, your virtual assistant is dedicated to making your life better, in and out of work. Life isn't all business.
This is super common. Don't worry, we can match you with a virtual assistant who is already trained in the skills you or your business need. Sure, you will have to show them the ropes, but the good news is that they’ve done similar work many times for other companies and they have tons of experience in making this easy for you.
Certainly. We’d love to talk to you. Many of Zirtual's customers prefer to have a quick consultation before starting. Ask us any questions you have specific to your business or industry and talk to us about your virtual assistance needs so we can make sure that there will be a Zirtual Virtual Assistant who can expertly assist you.

They are all powerful superheroes capable of saving the day - but yes, there are a few jobs your virtual assistant isn't going to be able to help you with. Answering phone calls, cold calling for lead generation, advanced accounting, and obviously anything that requires them to be physically present like accepting an Oscar on your behalf (okay, they'd probably be willing to do that) are outside the services Zirtual provides to the companies it serves. Your virtual assistant can make calls on your behalf to do things like book travel, or buy things, but they are not a receptionist or a smile and dial machine.
Yes, we're always hiring experienced virtual assistants. Virtual Administration is one of the fastest growing remote jobs industry. We are incredibly picky when it comes to hiring for virtual assistants, with only about 2% of applicants making it to the interview stage. Because our clients trust us to provide them exactly what they need when they are ready to hire a virtual assistant, we're intent on hiring virtual assistants with the necessary skills to excel in the role.
Now, a virtual assistant job isn't for everyone. People who aren't used to remote jobs, working autonomously, have an aversion to social media, or providing administrative services for multiple clients aren't like to thrive as an assistant.
