LongerDays is a team-based virtual assistant company located in Michigan. LongerDays’ business clients communicate with a Team Lead who delegates tasks seamlessly with specialist VAs on the team. LongerDays unique model allows them to deliver a broader array of services than a solo VA. Their structure ensures that clients always have access to a person who can assist them, even if the Team Lead is out for the day. Additionally, all LongerDays VAs are W2 employees, not contractors.
LongerDays was founded in 2007 and has grown to become one of the most sought after virtual assistant companies in the US. Demand for LongerDays can be high, particularly in January, so new clients may face a short waiting list for a spot as a LongerDays client.
How it Works
LongerDays virtual business assistants work as a team, so you get the benefit of a dedicated assistant as well as an entire office worth of experience and specialization. LongerDays VAs are capable of much more than just administrative tasks, including CRM configuration, business process consulting, writing/editing, graphic design, and task automation.
LongerDays makes significant investments in helping their clients document their business processes. The resulting process documentation belongs to the client and is useful even if a business ends up growing and hiring in-house staff.
LongerDays is picky about who they work with. You have to apply to become a client. Upon acceptance, clients are assigned a Team Lead who writes detailed task processes, delegates work to the in-house VA team, and oversees productivity and quality control.
As a Better Business Bureau accredited business, they are held accountable for delivering on their promises.
LongerDays provides assistance in five main areas:
- Business process documentation
- Admin & Invoicing
- Graphic Design
- WordPress and Web
- Content writing and book editing
Much like an in-house employee, they can be trained to accomplish just about anything you need done.
A LongerDays Virtual Assistant is not for everyone. They aim to provide a premium service for business clients with premium standards. They’re best suited for business owners who are looking for a wide variety of skills from a single source.
If you are looking for a personal assistant as a luxury service, this company is probably not for you.
