Online VA Team is a virtual assistant company based in Michigan, US, with their virtual assistants being based in their remote offices in the Philippines.
The business was founded in 2014 to serve a client base of entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized business.
About Online VA Team
When I spoke with OnlineVATeam manager Greg Parker, he stressed their assistant matching process. They take care to match clients with assistants that have the right skills and experience to complete the tasks to a high standard.
We really focus on dedicated staffing and that we focus on building teams from 1 person all the way up to 50. We have floor managers that are constantly in contact with our clients to be sure their staff are on top of things and the organization is running very smoothly.
So we scale sales teams, support teams, admin offices, things like this so that our customers don’t have to worry about it. This not only helps with less stress but also a significant savings.
How Online VA Team Works
They only hire college-educated assistants and put all their candidates through 3 rounds of interviews. The first two interviews are internal with their hiring team, and the last one is with you.
This gives you the chance to interview the assistant and get a feel for what the working relationship will be like before committing to working with them.
They will work across any time zones too, so regardless of where you are in the world they will accommodate your business hours.
Online VA Team’s virtual assistants are trained and ready to handle tasks across a wide range of job roles. Basically, they can take any tasks that can be completed remotely off your hands.
To give you an idea of the kind of roles their VAs typically fill, they group their skillsets into the following categories:
- Customer Service
- Sales Assistants
- Marketing Assistants
- Real Estate Assistants
- Social Media Management
- Personal or Executive Assistants
- Writing and Data Entry
- Online Research
If you have any tasks or requirements that you think may not be covered, you can book a free consultation with a member of their team to discuss your needs.
Plans and Pricing
Online VA Team currently have two plans. You can either hire a part-time assistant for 1 hour a day, or a full-time assistant for 8 hours a day.
Their plans are as follows:
- Entry Level Plan – $250 per month for 1 hour a day Monday to Friday ($12.50 per hour).
- Small Business Plan – $995 per month for 8 hours a day Monday to Friday ($6.50 per hour).
As you can see, if you have enough work for a full-time assistant you’re paying around half the hourly rate of a part-time assistant which is a substantial saving. A full-time staff member for under $1000 a month is a great value proposition.
Online VA Team Alternatives
There are plenty of virtual assistant companies in the Philippines to choose from. Take a look at VA Staffer — specializing in marketing help — or OnlineJobs.ph if you’re game for a full-time work from home hire. A great alternative company from India is MyTasker, who’s prices are also appealing.
