Get Virtual Services is a complete virtual assistant service provider in Mumbai, India. The company began in 2009, and has grown to serve a variety of clients around the world.
The company works with industry-trained virtual assistants who specialize in all types of knowledge-based and online work like market analysis, e-commerce transactions, advanced online technologies, web-maintenance, e-businesses, web-development, meeting arrangements, product marketing, client contacts, database administration, social media campaigning and more.
How it Works
Get Virtual Services follows a three-step approach towards building up a simplified workflow, through which customers can submit their requirements. The first step involves filling in a simple contact form that lists down business details, specific requirements and budget.
The turnaround time is 24 hours by which a complimentary consultation is scheduled, according to your convenience. Next, your immediate business goals are identified along with inherent issues that might crop up during execution. Simultaneously, a work outline is also traced out to defy obstacles and successfully complete the job.
Following the initial discussion, you receive a Welcome Packet that contains the Contract, Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement and Client Questionnaire. Soon after, a phone conversation is set up to gather more information on the first task that needs to be executed.
A couple points on their website confused me. The first was their 400 sq. foot office space with 25 desks. That seems like very cramped quarters and I’m guessing one of those figures is a typo.
The other point was that they provide support 6 days a week, but then on the very next line claim to be available 24/7.
Get Virtual Services offers three service types:
- Dedicated Assistance – Administrative Assistant services, Content Writing, MBA Assistance, Multi-tasking Assistance, Personal Assistance and Research Assistance.
- Website & SEO – Website Maintenance, E-Commerce Solutions, Web Development, Paid Search Advertising, Social Media, Content Marketing, SEO Services.
- Back-Office Assistance – Transcription Services, Medical Transcription, Business Transcription and Language Translation.
Plans and Pricing
Get Virtual Services offers four types of plans namely, Starter, Light, Part-Time and Full-Time.
All plans are extremely flexible in nature as you are free to upgrade or downgrade your plan whenever you want. The services take a minimum of 2-3 days before it gets activated. You can delegate both their business as well as personal tasks across all plan types.
These rates make Get Virtual Services one of the lowest cost providers. The starter package at $120 for 20 hours ($6 per hour) is among the most affordable VA services for that amount of hours, and a full-time VA for $710 per month is a crazy value.
Lately a representative of Get Virtual Services, Andy Sharma, has taken to sending me cold pitches on LinkedIn, trying to get me to use their service. The approach doesn’t seem to be targeted or reference this site at all. Part of me likes the hustle but the other part thinks it’s pretty spammy.
Get Virtual Services Alternatives
Get Virtual Services promises fully-trained staff, a reliable infrastructure, and great flexibility and value in terms of plans and pricing with easy upgrade/downgrade option. However, you may still consider other virtual assistant companies in India, including the well-reviewed My Tasker and 24/7 Virtual Assistant services.
Before starting with any of these services, I’d see if I could get on a call with their leadership, describe the tasks you need done, and if possible, see if you can interview the proposed VA they want to set you up with.

Do not use them. Terrible experience.
Was a complete waste of money as the quality of the work is sub standard. I applied for an MBA assistant, but the person assigned was obviously not one. Furthermore, they cheat you on the time, and when you get the results from a days work – it looks like it could have been done in 30mins.
I eventually negotiated a refund, but 2 months later am still waiting to receive it . Stay away!
