InoVA Local is a virtual assistant company providing virtual assistants based in the US and Canada to small and medium-sized business owners.
They focus mainly on working with local businesses. InoVA Local offers a cost-effective solution for local businesses to offload “up to 90%” of their day-to-day business tasks.
About InoVA Local
The company was founded by Christopher Schwab.
Chris owns a local house cleaning service called Think Maids, and he started InoVA Local when he saw a gap in the market for a local virtual assistant company when he needed to use one himself.
InoVA Local started operations in 2017. They started out working with local businesses like cleaning and painting companies and have been expanding their reach ever since.
All of their virtual assistants have prior professional experience, are fully trained in-house, and are able to learn and grow with the businesses they work with.
When you sign up for one of their plans, you’re assigned a dedicated assistant, as well as being a member of their support team you can go to as a point of contact with any questions.
InoVA Local Services
InoVA Local says, “Our virtual assistants can take on as much or as little as you want. What we don’t know we can learn.”
Their assistants are split into two categories:
- Virtual assistants
- Virtual managers
Their assistants can take all those day-to-day tasks off your hands, such as:
- answering phone calls
- scheduling meetings and calendar appointments
- managing emails
- research tasks
- and so on.
InoVA Local managers are experienced in managing teams, heading up departments, and overseeing projects.
The founder Chris field-tested this model with his own cleaning business, which he now effectively manages from abroad usually in less than an hour a day.
InoVA Local Plans and Pricing
InoVA Local currently have two different pricing plans as follows:
- Virtual Receptionist (phone-related tasks only) – $119 for 60 minutes with a completely free 30 day trial.
- Virtual Assistant – $990 for 30 hours.
- Virtual Manager – Custom Plans – InoVA discusses with you after working together at the Virtual Assistant level. (Between $1200-$1500 typically.)
There are no setup costs, additional charges, or hidden fees. Just a flat fee for each of their plans and you only pay for the hours you use.
InoVA Local does not specify how many hours are in the plans at the time of writing this.
If you’re interested in one of their plans and want to know more InoVA Local encourage you to book a free consultation call with a member of their team to run through what you’re looking for in an assistant and how they can best help.
InoVA Local Alternatives
If you’re looking at companies using US-based virtual assistants, I recommend checking out Time Etc and Boldly. They both have a good deal of positive feedback and have built up a lot of trust.
If you really just need someone to answer the phones, consider a virtual receptionist service like Gabbyville.
