Byron is a US-based virtual assistant company that started operations in 2016 under a closed beta and went live to the public in January 2017.

Their headquarters are located in New York City, and their assistants are home-based throughout the US.

About Byron

byron reviewThe company is headed up by its founder Michael Benson. Michael started HiByron.com due to seeing a lack of accountability and low quality of work across the freelance marketplace.

Byron only hires US-based assistants and puts them through a rigorous vetting and testing process evaluating them across more than 100 skills.

When you sign up for one of their plans you have the option to submit short or long-term tasks.

Short-term tasks are to be completed within 24 hours and will be assigned to the best-suited assistant. Long-term tasks give you the opportunity to work with the same assistant on an ongoing basis.

When I spoke with Michael, he explained the company is heavily invested in their technology infrastructure to deliver an awesome experience both for VAs and for clients.

Byron’s target customers are startups, small businesses, and individuals looking to outsource some of their workload.

They have a custom, user-friendly platform, and it’s easy to add multiple users so all of your team can have access to your VA and send tasks to be completed.

Byron Virtual Assistant Services

Byron’s virtual assistants can handle a wide variety of tasks that can be completed remotely. To give you an idea, they group their services into some of the following categories:

  • Administrative
  • Data entry
  • Marketing
  • Bookkeeping
  • Phone calls
  • Travel planning
  • Customer support
  • Research
  • Transcription
  • Writing

Byron’s most popular short-term tasks are research and data entry.

For long-term tasks it’s marketing and social media management.

Plans and Pricing

Byron currently has 4 monthly pricing plans to choose from. Their smallest hourly plan starts at $66 per month for 3 hours which works out at $22 per hour.

If you have around 10 hours of work to delegate every week (40 hours a month), you might consider Byron’s “Pro” plan — at $760 a month you can save a few bucks an hour. 

Their complete list of plans is as follows (accurate at press time):

  • Pilot – $66 per month for 3 hours. ($22/hour)
  • Regular – $210 per month for 10 hours. ($21/hour)
  • Plus – $400 per month for 20 hours. ($20/hour)
  • Pro – $760 per month for 40 hours. ($19/hour)

All of their plans include a dedicated account manager, Slack integration, time tracking, texting integration, unlimited requests, and you can rollover unused hours as long as you have an active subscription for the following month.

One thing to note is you can only submit short-term tasks if you sign up for the Pilot plan. All the other plans allow you to submit either short-term or long-term tasks.

Byron Alternatives

Byron is a relative newcomer into the growing US-based VA space, and is more affordably priced than companies like BELAY and Worldwide 101

Time ETC and Zirtual seem to be a closer match, with a similar tech-focus but still slightly higher rates.

    Byron is Great! I have worked with Byron for over 1 year and they have been a huge lever to my personal life and business. I have been able to offload a ton of tasks that allow me to handle things that I want to handle. They are professional and easy to work with and their platform is fairly easy to use. They also get things done much quicker than I could imagine. Shout out to my dedicated assistant Sarah who has been a lifesaver!
