NS Virtual Services provides virtual business services to entrepreneurs and businesses ranging from general admin and customer service, to social media and web development. I like the tagline of “Getting You Ahead Without The Overhead!”
The company was founded in 2008 by Natalie Szabo, who serves as the business and project manager. Natalie steers the ship from Quebec, Canada, and oversees current team members in Canada and the USA.
She explains that their ideal clients are entrepreneurs and business executives, who are willing to work on long-term ongoing projects. “Due to the varied skill-sets of each team member,” she adds, “We are able to serve various niches.”
How it Works
NS Virtual Services doesn’t limit themselves to any particular specialization.
“We partner with our clients to ensure that we match the perfect assistant to their project, not just who’s next available,” Natalie explains. “If we don’t have what the client is looking for, then we will find that special person, screening and vetting them in advance.”
Since each team member comes with different skill-sets, NS Virtual Services can cover the following services:
- General admin
- customer service
- data entry
- social media management
- website management
- online business management
- affiliate management
There are several multi-VA teams out there, but Natalie explains what sets them apart is their personalized service from start to finish. With a hands-on approach, she ensures that her clients and team are completely satisfied, making any adjustments necessary.
Clients can choose to work with their assigned VA directly, or have their VA manage several team members depending on the various tasks required.
Plans and Pricing
The company has different packages available, and the engagement is often customized for each client. Here are some ballpark numbers for reference, in USD:
- Hourly blocks, from 5 hours per month (minimum) to 60+ hours per month,
starting at $250
- Social media management packages, $397 – $997
- Consulting Package, $299
- Setup Package, $650
- Analysis Package, $749
- Affiliate Management programs, $645-1195
- Premade Social Media Kits, $47 to $197
I think it will come down to your comfort level and budget. For instance, you can certainly get data entry and transcription done for less, but there’s always the question of what’s going to be lost in translation and how much time you’ll have to spend cleaning up the results after the fact.
NS Virtual Services Alternatives
For similar US- and Canada-based support, there are lots of choices. Both Virtual Assist USA and Longer Days come to mind for their similar team-based approach. Natalie herself is an “alumni” of top-rated Boldly.
