At Zirtual we understand the time, cost, and effort it takes to hire an assistant. You want someone qualified and experienced, and you need them to able to get to work right away.
So let us handle the hiring legwork for you! We only hire US-Based, college educated assistants, and of the over 1,000 applications we get each month, we only accept 2%.
Working with a Zirtual assistant gives you access to the very best the US has to offer, rather than only what is available to you locally.
While it’s true that overseas virtual assistants cost a little less, there can be issues when it comes to communication and familiarity with American culture.
Hiring in the US also allows us to do a thorough background check on each candidate, to ensure we can protect our client’s security and trust.
Your assistant’s profile will actually tell you what part of the country they live in, and many of our clients have even met their assistant in person!
Having an assistant that works half a world away can make it difficult to connect easily. Things like last minute tasks, having your virtual assistant sit in on a meeting to take notes, or even daily phone calls are much more simple to coordinate in US time zones.
With Zirtual, you get to choose whether you’d like an assistant that works Eastern or Pacific time, so they work when you need them!
The need for clear communication is a top priority with an assistant, but when working with a virtual assistant it becomes even more critical since most of the information you share will be through email, text or phone.
When you aren’t working with your assistant face-to-face, you need to know that they that will be able to communicate with you easily, and represent you well when communicating with your clients and business contacts.
By having a US-Based VA you’ll ensure there aren’t any issues in understanding American money, travel systems, pop culture, slang, measurements, or media.
The simple knowledge of common US retailers, restaurants, and economy will make a big difference in the amount of explaining and information you’ll need to provide to get many tasks done properly the first time.
Our Zirtual assistants have years of experience working with US companies and common US programs and platforms. This greatly reduces the need for you to conduct special training, and allows you to begin enjoying the benefits of more free-time and increased productivity right away.
Another benefit of having a US-Based assistant is the ability to request an assistant with knowledge of certain areas. Need your VA to be familiar with downtown Chicago? Prefer someone located in the Dallas, Texas area? Just let us know. While we can’t guarantee it, we’ll do our best to accommodate your request.
Using Zirtual was a game changer for me as CEO and also for our company. An incredible service run by brilliant people. Can't recommend highly enough!
Zirtual has simplified my life. Just recently I've had help with getting a visa for Russia, talking to real-estate brokers, booking hotels, researching SXSW events and even getting my shoes resoled.
I was a total skeptic when it came to using ANY virtual assistants. Well, Zirtual put my fears to rest in a matter of weeks. My only regret is not using Zirtual a while ago!
