Equivity offers virtual assistants who provide administrative, marketing, and paralegal services. Clients work with a dedicated virtual assistant or team of virtual assistants. Each virtual assistant has specialized experience in their area of expertise and holds a bachelor’s degree. In addition to being US-based, Equivity’s virtual assistants are direct employees instead of independent contractors. This allows for better client service capabilities, increased accountability, and the ability to create and manage customized virtual assistant teams. Client Experience Managers provide an additional level of support to ensure all clients’ needs are met.
Equivity’s team of experts works together under the leadership and guidance of Equivity co-founders, Eric Wall, a partner at an international law firm, and Heidi Hodges, a marketing professional. As busy working parents with limited time, Heidi and Eric were inspired in 2014 to launch Equivity as a service to help other professionals and business owners achieve their goals and bring more balance to their lives. Within a few years, the business has grown exponentially and Equivity has introduced services to specifically target the marketing needs of businesses and paralegal support needs of law firms, as well as administrative and personal assistant support.
Equivity offers administrative, marketing, and paralegal services.
Administrative services include executive assistant services, bookkeeping services, project management, and chief-of-staff support. Equivity can provide a virtual assistant for a single executive, or a team of virtual assistants to support management or to handle overflow work.
Equivity’s marketing services include both strategy and execution of digital campaigns. Equivity marketing strategists can develop a marketing plan for a company as a whole or a unifying message for campaigns. Clients who need digital marketing campaigns executed can hire virtual marketing assistants who can assist with email marketing, pay-per-click marketing campaigns, social media management, and content creation. Clients can choose either service or use both.
Paralegal services are designed for attorneys at both law firms and working in-house at corporations. Equivity’s paralegals have experience in a wide range of practice areas including litigation, contracts, corporate, immigration, real estate, bankruptcy, and intellectual property.
Clients can also create custom plans that combine administrative, marketing, and/or paralegal services.
How Equivity Works
Prospective clients contact Equivity either via Equivity’s website or phone. An Equivity representative obtains information regarding the prospective client’s needs, including details of the role, desired skills, projected time required per month, and time zone. Based on his information, Equivity sends the prospective client a bio of a matching virtual assistant, typically within a business day. If the prospective client agrees that the virtual assistant is a match, they sign up for the appropriate plan on Equivity’s website. A client experience manager then makes the introduction to the virtual assistant, providing the virtual assistant’s contact information via email. The client schedules a complimentary kickoff call with the virtual assistant and work begins.
