Time Etc is a UK and US-based virtual assistant company that has been around since 2007. They recently expanded operations into the US market, and boast that they’ve helped complete more than 1,000,000 tasks and projects so far!

Time Etc was founded by entrepreneur Barnaby Lashbrooke, with the intention of helping other small business owners and entrepreneurs streamline their processes and make their lives more efficient.

About Time Etc

time etc reviewThe company employs college-educated professional virtual assistants. In fact, they only bring on new assistants who have at least 5 years commercial experience; companies their assistants have worked for include Facebook, Apple, IBM and AOL.

Most Time Etc VAs serve customers from their home offices in either the UK or the US.

If you sign up for Time Etc, you can expect to be assigned a dedicated assistant with whom you can begin to establish an ongoing relationship. However, clients have the option to match their work to the company’s entire team of VAs if someone else may be better suited to a particular task.

Time Etc Intro Video

When I wrote in to request more information, I was happy with the response time. I was able to set up a skype call with Victoria, who I found very helpful, polite, and enthusiastic.  I told her I liked how they put pictures of the VAs up on the website as a nice personal touch.

One interesting thing about Time Etc is they claim Penni Pike as a special advisor. She was Sir Richard Branson’s assistant for three decades, and is probably as close to a celebrity as they come in the world of personal assistants.  Now, you’re not likely to score Penni as your VA when you sign up, but she has helped train and mentor the rest of the crew.

  • recruiting
  • and more

To help ease the fears of first-time outsourcers, Time Etc is offering a free $50 credit for Virtual Assistant Assistant visitors to test out their service risk-free (with no credit card required), and a 100% money back guarantee. You won’t find that with a freelancer and definitely not with an in-house hire!

    I have only been with Time Etc for a short time, but I am LOVING it! After sadly losing my previous VA after 4+ years where he did everything for me perfectly–until he didn’t–I never thought I’d find a replacement, but I did at Time Etc. So far, I am VERY happy.

    I have relied on VA support from this and other services for years and I highly recommend Time Etc.

    Their staff has been universally talented and effective. Both Amanda and Diane have been reliable and responsive and I could not be more pleased.

    If you have never used VA support before or you’ve not been pleased with the support from another service, I highly recommend you give Time Etc a chance.

    Pick a project that really needs to be done but for which you have just not found the time and you will be pleasantly surprised at the results.

    It didn’t take very long for us to “sync up” in both how we communicate tasks and progress, as well as making changes to tasks as we learned together. Very few tasks are so cut-and-dry that they can be imparted trivially and never adjusted, so being able to sync as we go, has been really important.

  1. TimeEtc has been a great help to my business. I’ve struggled making time for the content on my blog because I was busy getting sales for the company. My lovely assistants, Morgan & Margaret, have done a fantastic job in writing the posts I really need for my blog. The virtual assistants involved are of the highest standards.
    I truly recommend Time Etc, because they have a very good quality control.

    Just completed my ‘get to know you’ call with my VA from Time Etc and it went great. My intention was to connect with my VA and let her into my life while also gaining an understanding of her outside of her skills and passions.

    I used Time Etc for a few months and was happy with the results. I now have a plan forward for my novel writing based on the research. The service is great and the VA was quick and efficient.

    We’ve used Time Etc for about 90 days and it’s been a total game changer. We’re a small non-profit that has downsized and we needed admin help and our VA Heather has been perfect. It has saved me so much time and effort and I have the utmost trust and faith that she can take care of anything I need.
    The staff at Time Etc. are also top notch and it’s been lovely dealing with the company.

    If the first month is any indication this service will become more invaluable to be than I thought. My VA is smart, attentive with great attention to detail and execution. I work across 4 businesses, a consulting practice, multiple philanthropic engagements and family. She has been helpful across it all improving my efficacy and quality of life.

    I have used Time etc for a while now and have found them to be very efficient, easy to work with, and timely in their execution. I run several different businesses in a variety of different sectors and I have assigned tasks in things ranging transcription to design.
    I use this service to maximize my time and spend my focus on things that are more original in nature (i.e. creative, requiring my specific knowledge, etc.) and getting help with the tasks that I need a second pair of eyes for.
    I am overall happy with my experience so far.

  2. I’ve had really positive experiences with the VAs used with Time Etc. It’s great having an account manager to hook you up with the right person, definitely.

    These days I use an independent VA that I met through chamber of commerce and she is a star! I didn’t realise that so little of what I’d actually paid to Time Etc went to my assistants. I understand about other business overheads – but personally I would rather make sure my VA is getting paid well for the hell I put them through (metaphorically speaking!)

  3. When thinking how to describe my experience with new VA Jennifer, there only one word that comes to mind…PHENOMENAL! She is an exceptional source of support and guidance for me- I feel reignited in my work. I have had a great experience in the past with Time etc- been using for over a year and truly value the service. It just keeps getting better and better!

    Erin is a pleasure and consummate professional. She’s proactive, considerate, and thorough. Having been support staff myself, I know how valuable good assistants can be to one’s business. Deciding on Erin as my Executive Assistant is one of the best business decisions I’ve made. Clients also sing her praises.

    I’m new to the whole “VA” thing and didn’t really know what to expect. All I can say is I wish I would have done this sooner! My VA Jaime has been a star and the process and follow through from Time Etc… has been great.

    Without question, Time Etc excels at customer service. Remote, virtual, collaboration takes trust and accountability. Time Etc realizes this and proactively monitors and confirms that their service is working to expectation, and responds quickly when they do not. Nobody is perfect, but responsive correction makes all the difference. I have used others, and many cheaper than Time Etc, but as we know it isn’t what it costs but what it is worth. Time Etc is a value.

    Rebecca is friendly, pro-active, and a quick learner who handled the complex and very varied types of tasks I gave her very well. Rebecca mainly helped managing my online news website’s subscribers – new and old. Handling free trials and queries, doing and chasing invoices, helping with the sales process. Rebecca also created single-handedly a new data analytics table to help me track my user behaviour on a weekly basis. That was clever and creative. Overall I would say Rebecca is very good on the creative and communicative side, and in dealing with clients. Some admittedly dull and repetitive tasks in managing and updating our contact tables could perhaps have received slightly more attention. The best thing is that Rebecca got used to my very unique business and client environment pretty well and quickly. Overall it was great!

    I started using Time Etc. a few weeks ago and already I’m wondering how I lived without it. I’d tried other solutions for administrative support in the past and they had always failed– the companies I worked with were not flexible enough to do what my particular small business needed. Shauna found me an assistant who is a great fit both in terms of style and ability. She has been on top of everything from the beginning. She’s proactive, reliable, dependable, courteous, responsive– everything I could hope.

    Heather at Timeetc has been a tremendous resource to allow me to focus on money-generating activity rather than ‘time vacuuming’ tasks. She’s also even participating in some of that money making activity too. In my small business, it has really meant the world. Very very satisfied customer here :)…

    Diane is amazing. Perfect communication and delivery. I gave her one of the most difficult tasks that I have: finding a flight. I’ve had up to three EAs at a time and they always struggled to find the right commercial flights for me. I’m very picky. Diane accomplished this very well considering that we’ve never worked together.

They have been extremely helpful and understanding over the past few months and went out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction.

    You can find my occasional reviews going back to 09/23/2015, and in all that time my opinion has not wavered. The Time Etc team continues to impress me.

    Unfortunately my last VA with them moved on, and they hooked me up with Kacie. What a great fit. All the Time Etc. Folks have been good, but even among them, Kacie has been outstanding. She is proactive, checking with me on tasks and reminding me if she needs information.

    Perhaps the greatest compliment is that I can trust Kacie’s judgment. When she is researching/contacting vendors I can rely on her notes about who sounded knowledgeable and who she would recommend. Her insight from her interaction is worth as much to me as a sterile Yelp! score and I have never gone wrong taking her advice.

    Is Time Etc more expensive than some? Yes.
    Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY.

    This company has been a very effective solution in helping me service my clients and maximize the time spent on projects, as well as handling tasks that I don’t necessarily enjoy or have time for. I’m able to utilize them for a variety of functions to eventually create a collaborative team environment without having to worry about tedious tasks such as liability or payroll, such as competitive research.

    I have come to really depend on my VA. She has become our point person for all customer inquiries. Our VA learned all of our CRM systems easily, and even went on to continue to educate herself on our other systems. She is a true star. I would be lost without her help each day.

  6. I am thrilled with the quality of service I get from TimeEtc. Their representatives are smart, so it’s not a big headache when you have a new idea to implement. The hours roll over, so I’m free to take a week off if I need it and not feel like I’m losing money.

    Everything has been timely and full of communication so we can get the task right the first time which is freeing me up to spend more time with family and clear some headspace.

    Glad to be working with Louise of Time Etc.!

    There are quite a few VA companies around, but it is hard to imagine any being better than Time Etc. From top-quality VAs to excellent and supportive on-boarding to quick Acct Manager assistance, I give Time Etc 5++ stars! This company knows what they are doing in the world of VA’s. They CARE about their freelancers and seem committed to working with top quality qualified U.S. BASED Va’s. I’ve heard the VA application process is thorough and pretty intensive. They are not about the “virtual sweat shop” business like some others. Their VAs earn a FAIR living doing what they love while we busy professionals save money a AND precious time. A win-win in my eyes.

    I would be lost without Sharon, my Time Etc VA. I’m a female/attorney version of Sir Richard Branson and she is my personal “Penni Pike”. As an Attorney my focus is always on the best way to represent my clients first and paperwork second. Thanks to Sharon, I never worry about anything. She “virtually” manages my business, my office as well as my life! There are no words to describe her office administration skills or her knowledge of what it means to be an Virtual Administrative Support Professional. She is a pleasure to work with, personable, honest, self-aware (professionally & personally), a “virtual” God-send to me & my practice, and my clients adore her.

    If you’re on the fence about whether or not a VA is for you, I highly recommend giving Time Etc a try. And I highly recommend Sharon!

    The customer service is outstanding. I especially love the way they check-in to see if everything is working out to my satisfaction. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

She has handled complicated tasks with efficiency and good cheer. I have constantly given her more projects and will continue to do so.

    I cannot recommend Amanda more highly.

    Mary Herman is terrific. She’s smart, much better than I am at several software packages, and fast. What’s not to love?
    It has been a slow-ish ramp-up for me to get used to delegating again after several years of retirement and no “staff” to help me. But we’re getting there.
    I find the billing to be messier than necessary… I worry about not having “extra” hours roll over into the next month, etc… and I wish I did not have to pay a foreign exchange fee for every extra hour I buy.

Here’s the result of what she helped to expedite for me. http://www.shesource.org/experts/profile/graciela-tiscareno-sato Now that she’s proven her excellence, I’m assigning her work that will DIRECTLY bring in revenue.Thanks Cari!

    I have ran large organizations with terrific staff and I have used outsourced firms that provided great support. That said, I could not be more pleased with the support from Time Etc. My VA Amanda has been incredibly helpful and allowed us to complete a major task by working right up to 10pm the night before Thanksgiving. I can’t recommend Amanda and Time Etc. more highly.

    Rebecca is a highly valued and excellent part of the team. She has performed a variety of roles for our small company, including some which were highly technical, and others which required excellent communication, tact and tenacity.
    Timeetc also managed the contract very well – we are in safe hands.
    Highly recommended.

  10. As always, with every task that I give her, Kate is prompt, efficient, creative, and professional. I could not have made progress on my book without her. She consistently earns a 5 star rating.

  11. My first time using a virtual assistant. The folks at Time Etc were great at educating me on the process and placing me with several options of assistant to choose from. Once we made our decision, it has been a very easy transition. Wish I would have done it sooner.

    I have been working with my current virtual assistant for several weeks.
    She has been my right hand! From scheduling appointments for me, to encouraging and brainstorming ideas specific to marketing and growth, I have been more than pleased with the match.
    I find now that I am more able to focus on my clients and less on paperwork. She has been a true gift!

    This is my third comment here… but I like following up. I have been using TimeEtc since September of 2015 and I am still just incredibly happy.

    After the departure of my previous assistant from the firm I got paired up with Jessica it has continued to be an awesome relationship. To me? This proves my experiences were not a fluke! The company works hard anytime I have a question and Kristen continues to be a great point of contact.

    TimeEtc is comparatively expensive if you related it to some of the offshore firms, but the extra $$$ really shows through in the quality of the work.

    I decided to give Time Etc a shot since they offered a free trial, but I was skeptical about the pricing. After the first task was completed in less than a third of the time it would have taken me, I was sold. It might be $25/hr but they get about 2 or 3 hours worth of work done in that time, plus I don’t have to worry about payroll, keeping them busy, or paying someone to work when I don’t need them. The 2 assistants I use are very professional and are self starters getting projects finished without many questions or needing to be trained / micro-managed. Give them a shot!

    I have used Time Etc. for about three months now and I don’t know what took me so long. The assistance has been invaluable and has allowed me to increase my productivity enormously. The benefit to cost ratio for me has been almost incalculable!!!!!!

    I now have extreme confidence that I can turn tasks over to Tim Etc. associates, spend my time on higher value activities, and receive a high quality work product back every time.

    The services have far exceeded my initial exepctations.

    As a busy mom and resident physician, I was often feeling overwhelmed by time-consuming home, social and career tasks that I just wasn’t getting done in a timely way. I have been working with Time Etc. for about 4 months now, and am very happy with this service. Our assistant Kimberly is incredibly versatile and proactive, and finds ways to help with a range of tasks from editing medical presentations to helping plan family outings and arranging appointments. She also provides creative ideas for meals, gifts and events. It’s a comfort just having someone that I know is moving forward on tasks even when I cannot, and helps me to be more motivated as well. Thank you Time Etc.!

  12. Jessica is absolutely amazing, always a great attitude, willing to go the extra mile. I am so appreciative of her assistance and look forward to working with her again in the near future.

    I have been freelancing through Time Etc for over 18 months. I have found it a great place to freelance through, very professionally run with no fees or catches that is often the case with other freelancing sites. The business model of having an account manager allocated to the VA’s/clients means there is excellent communication and support for both the client and VA team.

    I have been working for Time Etc. for a little over a year now and love it! It is wonderful to be able to work with entrepreneurs, small business owners and business professionals were I can use my skills sets to help their business succeed. Time Etc. is a great place for part-time work and I enjoy being able to manage my day and set my own schedule. I have always received very timely assistance from Help & Support with any questions that have arose. I would absolutely recommend anyone to work for the company! Keep up the great work Time Etc.!!!

  13. I thought I would write a review being on the other side of the process!
    I applied to become an assistant at Time etc! Well, what a waste of time that was. I literally had to jump through hoops to get accepted (having been an assistant for a ten year period for some very highly respected firms) only to be told today by an automated email that I had been unsuccessful.
    The company has a real lack of communication with it’s potential freelancers and is something that they need to address. Through the whole on boarding process I didn’t actually speak to a single human being!
    Disgusted.

    1. Same here, I am disgusted. I actually thought I had been accepted but I was dumped after my first task and my request for feedback refused. I am now glad I was dumped, gross way to treat people. My advise? Go on Upwork or freelancer and get proper professional freelancers and do not go through a horrid agency like this.

      1. Hello there,

        Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.

        I’m really sorry you weren’t successful in being accepted as a freelance Virtual Assistant through Time etc.

        I understand that it is very difficult when your application isn’t taken further, especially when you’ve invested time in the process.

        The quality of Virtual Assistants available through our platform is very important to us. As a result, we’re unable to progress many applications that we receive.

        We’re a small team who enjoy working with hundreds of Virtual Assistants in the U.S. and UK, many of whom we have known and worked with for a number of years.

        We take all feedback (good and bad) very seriously and I will ensure your feedback regarding communication reaches Samantha and Cheryl who run our application process.

    She has been a true pleasure to work with. Her skills in administration have allowed me not only to be more focused with my clients, but also, my family, as I am no longer checking voicemails or email for scheduling purposes.
    Her organizational skills are exceptional. She has helped me tackle various projects that have been on my “to do” for awhile., and likely would still be if I had not found Time Etc.
    I am very thankful for this service!

She is good at writing, searching and handle a lot of things together. I came from oversea and everything is new to me. She helped me so much!

    I was matched up with a great VA who totally “gets” my very niche audience. I have her handle all of my social media tasks, research, event scheduling, and other things.
    Social media tasks that used to take me hours take her minutes, and engagement is soaring!
    I like that if I have a one-time task come up that calls for help outside of her sphere, I can get that taken care of, too.

    If you look at my previous comment, you can see that I have been working with timeetc since late September. I wanted to come back and say that I am still absolutely blown away by this company.

    I have worked with 7 assistants there, and all of them have been great but it is awesome how quickly you sort of find the person you most often return to. Christina has been a growing part of my workflow and simply a stellar asset.

    After going through any number of lower cost VA companies it is so clear that timeetc is a cut above in the quality of their assistants and well worth the money. From scheduling to research and on to light WordPress administration, I never feel like my tasks will not be covered. The one time they didn’t have the skills on staff for a job that was way outside the scope of a VA they let me know and offered to manage the Upwork search for a freelancer.

    Just awesome.

    I started using Time Etc when, at around midnight one night while semi-slumped at my laptop drowning in work – I realised I needed assistance.

    I have never looked back. I run 2 business and use 2 VAs who are skilled in different areas. I use them con-currently and my businesses have never run more smoothly.

    I find my VAs are extremely responsive in a timely manner to all emails I send and new task requests. They are really efficient and I especially like being able to track the time they spend on tasks, which provides transparency for so I can manage costs, especially with my start-up company.

    I send regular thank-you cards to my VAs as I honestly have never had an issues with them – I can only speak highly of them and the Management Team at Time Etc, who take the time to match my requirements to the skills of the assistants on their books. Rachael at Time Etc knows the staff she has on her books so well, that while on the phone with her, she can instantly recommend a new VA for my requirements, as and when they change.

    Regarding managing my account, topping up credit and changing plans, Time Etc are very responsive and accommodating.

    10 stars would not be enough!

    Highly recommend.

    I don’t understand if all of the reviews on here are paid or fake users or maybe I just had a very bad experience, but my experience as a customer with TimeETC was not good. Initial setup took a week or two before I was paired with an assistant, and communication was slow off the bat with my “account manager” Kristen. Things were going fairly smoothly for a while – basic tasks like researching travel, etc.. until suddenly a month or two in I received an email saying my assistant (who had dropped off communication a week earlier) was no longer with TimeETC. Some warning about this would have been nice but I understand it’s possible she left and didn’t give TimeETC much notice.

    Fast forward a few weeks, I’m still going through back-and-forth communication with Kristen trying to get a new VA. She was very slow to answer emails (sometimes taking several days or a week) and I was still without service. I got in touch with her eventually and scheduled a call but ultimately decided to cancel before I tried a new VA. TimeETC’s pricing is very competitive and I appreciate their model of providing a dedicated assistant. Not a fan of RedButler, FancyHands or others who use pool models. But, I fear they may be selling themselves short and understaffed given the poor communication I experienced. Seems like this company could be pulling a Zirtual soon.

    1. Dear Jay,

      I would sincerely like to apologize for the issues you have experienced.

      Our goal is for every client to be delighted with the service they receive from us – and we’re lucky enough to receive many positive reviews as a result.

      In this case we clearly didn’t achieve that goal for which we are very sorry.

      Please rest assured that we have taken your feedback very seriously, especially regarding response times, and will be taking steps to ensure that this does not happen again.

    2. Hi there.

      I joined time etc as a VA in December last year. I was paired with a client who then messaged me to say he was leaving as the account manager who was supposed to be dealing with him had someone else make contact and try to up sell him unnecessarily. I found it impossible to get jobs (they go within 5 seconds of posting) and after earning a whole £8.86 for best part of an hours work I also decided to part company.

      I thought it would be a good way of getting some steady income whilst I built my own business.

      I asked the account manager what had happened to the client and they assured me he was still with them. He wasn’t.

      I wouldn’t rate them and they seem to waste an awful lot of both client and worker time.

      Hope you found a VA in the end

      Thanks. Jo.

    It took me a day or two to find an assistant that worked well with me, but their ever-vigilant account manager was on hand to smooth the process.

    For the last few months I’ve been using Time Etc for personal tasks and business entertainment and find it to be very effective. For a small number of hours it’s a bit on the pricey side, but it’s worth it.

    I have been using Time Etc since August, and it is simply outstanding. To this point I’ve had one assistant only, and over time she has gotten to know key information about me, so now I can often spend less time explaining and defining up front. I have used the service to coordinate multiple business trips, schedule home services, perform subject research, coordinate social media, and more.

  16. I started using Timeetc. today – and wow. I feel like my life has changed in ONE day! I have already had Stephanie help me with a hotel reservation (with several funky details), an order on Nordstrom for my brother in a faraway state, scheduling, and more. In one day. Thank you, Timeetc.!

    I used Time.etc to extract information from a number of webpages.
    I am very happy with the work that was done.
    I found their assistants understood the task quickly and were efficient and responsive.
    A great service which I will use again.

  17. TimeEtc has done exactly what I asked to have done in an area of marketing where I personally lacked knowledge and proficiency . The work was done well and in a timely manner. I only wish they had generated more leads and understood more advanced techniques for attracting the type followers I was trying to generate. But overall the word was done well and the virtual assistant was caring and professional.

    I’ve been hiring freelancers to help me with my business for a while now and this has been, by far, the best experience. I get to deal with someone in the United States that does not take shortcuts on just trying to complete a task but actually try and understand what I’m trying to accomplish. The work is not that complex but there are a lot of little adjustments and improvements that are necessary along the while and while some I’ve dealt with will happily take the money regardless of whether or not the work was effective or not, my assistant demonstrated an interest in ensuring that what we are doing makes sense and is working as intended. I highly recommend this service and the assistant that Time Etc. chose to assign to me for the work I needed help completing.

    I’m blown away by the quality of my VA. This is unbelievable value to my organization – such a massive load off of our liability and not an ounce of quality lost. Don’t change a damn thing, Time, Etc.

    As a serial entrepreneur running two businesses and consulting with several others my time is hardly my own. Over the last few months I’ve taken on a handful of new projects and commitments that position my business for great advances; suck more and more of my personal time.

    Enter TimeETC and the awesome group of VA staff. It’s like having an entire agency at your disposal. So far I’ve engaged a WordPress and content management guru in addition to a communications wizard. Unlike more expensive tools where you pay for “dedicated personal” here that option is just included along with a ton of useful benefits.

    I didn’t get a 50$ credit as mentioned above (it was only $25 for me) but I can say it’s still worth it beyond a doubt.

    Multiple lines of communication CHECK

    Fast response and turn around CHECK

    Professional staff CHECK

    Next I would love to see them part of the Founders Card network, but that may just be too much awesome !!

    I’ve been relying on timeetc since my business began growing and I don’t have time to do tasks that are important but take time away from the higher priority tasks that I have to get done. Bay has become my personal go-to doing everything from creating a workflow spreadsheet to contacting my clients and sending emails. Plus, I look good to clients that I have an assistant since I’m a sole proprietory. Timeetc has been clearly an asset to my company. There are a number of other of the same type of sites out there, but I tried them and didn’t stick with them. This is the real deal.

    I was skeptic but lured in by their free trial not requiring a credit card. They really cater to the customer (all I do is literally type in the task, no selecting categories, or details, etc.), and the work is pretty quick & quality. At this rate I should be able to get 2-3 things done on the free trial alone.

    I’ve always had to rely on myself for getting stuff done because no one else is competent. That’s probably why my own personal tasks have gotten neglected… Too busy doing other peoples’ jobs. Finally, after trying on TimeEtc, I’m hopeful that this can change because I will be able to rely on someone else who will do the job RIGHT without being micromanaged.

    Can’t wait to try more.

    I can’t recommend Time Etc highly enough. I started using them over a year ago and have been consistently impressed by their efficiency, friendliness and quality of service. I wish I had more work to give them!

  18. Time Etc has been such a great help. I am able to send tasks and they are done efficiently and reliably. It’s tremendous value to get some things off my plate and focus on the work of teaching Pilates.

    Terrific support. My VA, Holly, and manager, Kirsta, are amazing. It is taking me time to provide needed information to Holly. As I send more support material, she adapts immediately. I am stepping up the transmission of my stuff to her and increasing the number of task each day. I am very pleased.

    Time Etc are brilliant! Compared to other services out there, they are a really low risk option that always deliver to a very high standard with minimal input from myself. Support is great too; you get access to real people if you need help posting tasks, or coming up with ideas on where else you can save time.

    I’d recommend them to anybody, plus you get £25 worth of free credit to get going 🙂

    So far so good. I’m learning that I need to be better at delegating and give teh right information, but already it’s saved me time and money on things I simply don’t need to be doing. My VA has been getting to know me and my business and that’s making everything run smoother. Top notch service.

    Kristyn is an amazing help. She handles my social media communications with very little supervision on my part and keeps me on track and on time with my blog schedule. She has been a delight to work with, very fast, a quick study in my area of expertise and a great help. I’m so glad I finally tried a virtual assistant. Thank you Kristyn.

  19. Time Etc is absolutely fantastic quick and easy to use and they keep you very informed.

    The price per hour really does reflect the service they are giving and is very competitive for tasks almost started at the same time you send them.

    Its is just like they are sat in our office.

    The group at Time Etc is absolutely great to work with. They have an easy to use interface, communicate extremely well, and have very talented people. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is looking to get more done in the same amount of time.

    The team at Time etc are just fantastic. They are communicative, responsive, timely, honest, thorough and work to a very high standard. I’ve been working with the team their now for three months and they are all excellent.

    The user interface is nice both on web and mobile.

    I’ve tried offshore virtual assistant services and they just aren’t as good as Time etc. Highly recommended.

    I tried Time Etc and Red Butler.. Time Etc had much better communication. The information was presented in a detailed fashion with support documents provided. The tasks were handling in a professional manner and quickly. Definitely going to stay with Time etc!

    Time-etc have been excellent. Very professional, efficient and versatile in the range of support provided. Laura is our main support and we’ve been really pleased

  20. I’ve been using Time Etc for a couple of months now, and I can’t express how wonderful it is to have this resources. There’s nothing like the feeling of “yes, I CAN get that done even though I’m working a 12-hour day….” They are professional, talented, and have excellent follow-up.

  21. I began using Time etc. last month to do a few research tasks including calling local businesses and getting quotes. I’m extremely impressed with how efficiently they got the job done; it was actually faster than I probably would have spent, and it freed up my time to do other work. They are very professional and courteous, and the online interface was quite streamlined also. I’ll be moving more of my to-do list into Time etc. for sure!

    Charlene was phenomenal – she got the task done in very short period of time and was very effective in following up on all the little items that were a part of the fulfillment of the duty.

  22. I came to Time etc to find consistent support from talented, experienced people and that’s exactly what I found. On day one I was given a dedicated Personal Assistant who could grow with me and my business and after only a week into using the service, I already felt like I’d be lost without her.

  23. I’ve used Time Etc. for nearly a year now across three businesses that I run and manage. I also use my Executive VA extensively for personal management too, such a travel arrangements.

    I use the service for three main areas: 1) diary management & scheduling 2) (social media) marketing; & 3) accountancy.

    Once I appreciated that I needed to be focused and to communicate clearly, I realised much greater benefit and leverage from Time Etc.
