Team Delegate provides US-based virtual assistant services to clients all around the country. The Dallas, Texas-based company was founded in 2001 by CEO Tonya Thomas, and now employs a diverse team of VAs working from home offices throughout the United States.
The distributed team model allows for client coverage in different time zones and doesn’t restrict hiring to one geographic area; instead, Tonya can go out and find the best talent available regardless of location.
About Team Delegate
Team Delegate aims to provide expert help to business owners, sales professionals, entrepreneurs and other busy professionals. Like other VA companies, it’s all about smart outsourcing to help you run your business more efficiently.
Tonya brings over 14 years of experience as a virtual assistant and manager to the operation. Having begun in this industry as a virtual assistant herself, she sought to change the market and offer clients USA-based skills to help them manage administrative tasks and day-to-day operations.
That decade-plus of experience translates into advanced training for each new VA hire, which leads to higher quality and more reliable results for clients.
She explained that her client roster and target customers include “small business owners, busy professionals and even large corporations.” A VA can provide you with “the extra boost that you need to maintain efficiency without a full-time employee,” she added.
Clients look to Team Delegate for services such as data entry, transcription, calendar management, travel management, contact management, organization services and more.
Beyond basic administrative tasks, Tonya explains she has “professional VAs with many different skills and backgrounds so that we can provide customized service based on our clients’ needs.”
When I asked Tonya if there were any areas Team Delegate really specialized in, she mentioned, “In our industry we have an especially strong reputation of providing reliable assistance with calendar management, logistics support, and travel arrangements.”
Plans and Pricing
Team Delegate works primarily on a retainer basis, with a minimum of 10 hours per month to sign-up. The hourly rate is $35 an hour, so you’re looking at a minimum package price of $350 for 10 hours of US-based virtual support.
(These rates are pretty much on-par with what you’ll see from other US-based firms, with the exception of the inexplicably affordable US-branch of 24/7 VA.)
How it works is you start of with a free initial consultation call to identify your delegation needs and opportunities. After you agree on a scope of work proposal, you’ll be assigned a dedicated executive assistant to work with.
Note: Be sure to select Virtual Assistant Assistant in the “How did you hear about us?” field 🙂
Team Delegate Alternatives
Of course there are a number of competing entries in the US-based virtual executive assistant market, all out to debunk the myth that virtual assistants are a third-world industry. Among the highest-rated alternatives at press time are Worldwide 101, eaHELP, and Time Etc. All operate with a similar distributed team model of home-based staff.
If you have a specific skill-set you’re looking for, you might also consider hiring “directly” via a freelance platform like Elance.
