MyTasker is a well-established and fast growing firm in the virtual assistant industry. The India-based company was founded in 2012 by three veteran VAs, who brought years of experience to the table.
Since the MyTasker team spent the time in the trenches, they know how to take care of clients and were able to recruit high-performing professional virtual assistants to join their team.
They started out as a contract service on Freelancer.com, and after gaining some traction on that platform decided to launch as a standalone operation.
My Tasker offers a dedicated virtual assistant service starting at 10 hours a month.
Your dedicated MyTasker VA can handle everything from customer support (online or over the phone), transcription, social media management and online marketing, online research, website maintenance and more.
Naturally, your virtual assistant can handle general administrative tasks as well such as appointment setting, travel or restaurant reservations, or other back-office tasks that can be completed remotely.
In addition to these types of tasks, MyTasker has also added two new specialty divisions for SEO and for a virtual receptionist service. I’ll show you the details and pricing for those services below.

How it Works
With My Tasker, you’re assigned a qualified VA based on the anticipated roles you need filled. You can communicate via phone, email, or Skype, and delegate tasks on a recurring or on-demand basis. For each task you delegate, they’ll either tackle it themselves, or request help from a qualified team member.
Your pre-purchased hours expire at the end of each billing cycle, but there are no long-term contracts and you can cancel at any time.
Your VA’s hours are tracked inside MyTasker’s internal dashboard so you can always log in and see how much time you have left for the month.
I was impressed during my trial of My Tasker, but I was using their now-discontinued “Lifestyle Assistance” plan, which offered 30 15-minute tasks for $39 a month.
Since then I’ve used their service for some daily database maintenance tasks and found them to be quite reliable. At one point, my VA had moved on to a new role within the company and it was several days before I even found out because she’d taken full responsibility to train her replacement.
Plans and Pricing
The rates for Professional Assistance start at $140 for a 10-hour a month plan, and go all the way down to $7.50/hr for a massive 160-hour plan.
That means you can have a full-time 40-hour a week VA for just $1200, which is a strong value for ongoing business support. If you want to take the service for a test drive, I suggest selecting one of the smaller plans to start with, and then scaling up your engagement from there. (Use the discount code below!)
Pricing Table (accurate at press time):
- 10 hrs per month – $140 ($14/hr)
- 20 hrs per month – $250 ($12.50/hr)
- 40 hrs per month – $450 ($11.25/hr)
- 60 hrs per month – $600 ($10/hr)
- 100 hrs per month – $900 ($9/hr)
- 160 hrs per month – $1200 ($7.50/hr)
If at any time you go over your plan’s hours, additional time can be purchased at $15 an hour (assuming staff availability).
Virtual Receptionist Plans
My Tasker added a call answering service where you can have a virtual receptionist answer your business line 24 hours a day. They’ll log and record each call, and give your company a professional presence on the phone.
And finally, if you need help with SEO and driving more traffic to your site from Google and other search engines, MyTasker has built up a dedicated team of SEO experts.
The service includes on-page optimization and off-page link building, and is ideal for local businesses. You pick the 10 most important pages on your site you want to rank for, and the SEO guys get to work.
Google is notoriously fickle so don’t expect results overnight, but over time you should begin to climb in the rankings.
I asked Ronny, the COO, what sets My Tasker apart from the competition, both in India and elsewhere. He explained that the team’s extensive experience in the industry, especially on the customer service side, gives them an advantage.
“We have the freedom to go that extra mile to make sure our customers are satisfied,” he says, implying that other larger VA companies don’t necessarily afford that freedom.
