VA Talks is a professional virtual assistant provider in India with 24/7 support. The company was formed in 2015 by two veteran virtual assistants who decided to start their own firm.

Despite the inherent “new-ness” of the VA Talks company, the founding partners bring nearly a decade of business process outsourcing experience to the table and are growing a team to serve other entrepreneurs and small businesses around the world.

About VA Talks

va talks reviewThe goal of VA Talks is to help other companies get their most important tasks done. The team is working from the secure office in Kolkata, India.

Like other virtual assistant companies, they want to earn your trust so you have confidence in the experience and quality of VAs they provide. The target market for these services are for busy individuals, entrepreneurs, small businesses or large corporations interested in freeing up some time or getting access to skilled help for their day-to-day needs.

In addition, clients tap the VA Talks team to help design mobile apps, run marketing efforts, create presentations and proposals, and to do research.

When I spoke with one of the founders, CEO Sanjay (Sam) Gupta — no, not that Sanjay Gupta — he explained that they recruit team members with a variety of skills, but that, “Some of our most in demand VAs are proficient in WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Drupal, and many other web development platforms. Our Web team is our main focus but we do have virtual assistants capable of helping nearly any type of company or individual.”

VA Talks Alternatives

When I asked Sam what sets his team apart, he explained, “It’s fairly easy to find a workforce of VAs that are willing to work. But VA Talks goes the extra mile to find staff that will deliver quality work.

He went on to share that all of the VAs on the team “are our friends who are hand-selected for our clients to service their needs. We work to provide not only the best quality labor in our industry but also customer experiences that will have you consistently coming back for more.”

    VA Talks has allowed me to put myself back in my sales role for more hours. Which is what I need to be doing to grow the company.

    I really feel like the team is holding together the parts of the business that I need help with. I’m thrilled with what they’re accomplishing.

    I used their services for 3 months as a full time assistance and I am not their customer at the moment as my web project got over within time. They were on-time, efficient, courteous and always hardworking. They were not afraid to ask questions and get in right on the first go! All stars from me!

    Aryan was right on target – he 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. Great work so far!!

    I’m a newbie when it comes to outsourcing so I’d like to see a more consultative approach or learn about some best practices from within the VA Talks’ process.

    I’m happy with the results so far but would like to see a better way to leverage all their cumulative experience. Maybe it’s just me. Whatever it is they are doing good, so far!!

    I started utilizing VA Talks for a few research related tasks and normal administrative tasks and so far, throughout this journey, I am really pleased! Tasks including calling nearby organizations and getting price estimates are being completed in a timely manner. I’m greatly impressed with how effectively they got those tasks done.

    They are precise professional and courteous, and their customer service is exceptional. You ask anything related to their service and get back a nice brief email. Additionally. I’ll be moving more of my to-do list tasks to these guys for sure.

    Good value for money!!

    VA Talks is the best VA service I’ve ever used. They are dedicated to helping you and genuinely care about the work they are doing.

    VA Talks has helped us with a number of tasks including data entry, website management, web development, and more. They are competent, smart, and timely.

    Highly recommended for anyone that needs some virtual assistance.

    So I was unsure about all of this VA stuff so I read many reviews and decided to take the plunge with one company. I was given an introductory free hour or something, and gave them a task I knew would take much longer than my free alloted time. This was primarily a test. The company never even got back to me, yet alone complete my task. When I emailed them, I was told that there had been a “national holiday in India and trial period customers received lowest priority”. Feel like the VA would be a total fail, I tried once again with VA Talks. Wow, what a difference from the previous company. They responded very quickly and completed my tasks. They even called a few times to check on me and their service. We worked through the particulars of my first task and eventually they became efficient and skilled at my task. I love having VA Talks on my team.

    I just love VA-Talks. Sam and his group have made a real difference in our company’s bottom line. They have taken over certain aspects of our business and allowed us to be more productive.

    Since having these guys on board we have been able to dedicate more valuable time towards seeking new markets and growing our company.

    Another great part of VA-Talks is the quality of both the work and the communication. Sam and his staff are courteous and very patient. You can always get a hold of them pretty much any time and their response time is excellent.

    The ideal virtual assistant organization is both reliable and helpful, possesses a wide range of skill sets, and the outlook that no task is too big or too small.

    I had the good fortune to work with VA Talks, and was immediately impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. VA Talks learns quickly, asks the right questions and is proactive at all times. They provide a level of service that goes above and beyond what is typically available, at very cost-effective pricing. They are available whenever you need them, highly skilled, and strong in client care and communication. I highly recommend their services!

    I am very happy with VA Talks. I already have 2 full time assistants, one handling all my customer service for several websites, and one for inventory control, stock management, and basic bookkeeping. I am looking at a third for marketing and sales, as well as wholesale customer development.

    The guys work hard, take a real interest, and genuinely care about the work they do. Sam is always available, it seems 24/7 but at least whenever i need him.

    I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

    I cannot recommend them highly enough. Choose VA Talks. You won’t go wrong.

    And thanks to Nick for his great website which is where I found VA Talks.

    I could not be happier with VA Talks. I vetted several companies, and these guys were the most punctual with their response time and comprehensive with their proposed solutions. Once hired on, they helped me do everything from social media promotion, content research, content organization and graphic design. I have a lot more for them, and am completely confident they will deliver with the same professionalism, kindness, efficiency, timelines and even gratitude that they have shown me in every single interaction. I could not be more pleased with VA Talks!

    I have had a decent experience over the past couple of months utilizing VA Talks for web research and initial drafts of Power Point presentations. The initial couple of weeks were alright and I think we needed to set up a decent specialized strategy to make enhancements in a way all my tasks were handled. Once we got the ball rolling, the service has constantly improved. I suspended their service for a month as I didn’t require it, it was fairly simple and smooth to cancel and later restore. I would totally recommend these folks for research and excel projects. Communication with support line and my assistant has been clear and timely.

    Projects have been completed on time with generally satisfactory results. My current assistant Sean has been especially useful with recent ventures. I feel increasingly great every week with allocating more tasks. This has been a dependable service and an extraordinary investment for a small business owner.

    Overall I am satisfied with this service.

    I joined a couple of months ago with their VA 20 hours – I’m a working individual with a profession in banking sector so I have next to no time staring me in the face. VA Talks has spared me SO much time for all sort of tasks – email management, travel assistance and any sorts of online research.

    What’s more is that their way is constantly pleasant – like a genuine “Assistant” – I’m truly impressed so far – highly recommended!

    I have been with VA Talks for five months now. The service is great. They managed my e-commerce website and my email accounts. Their on board content writers are really awesome.
    VA Talks has put together a top notch service! All around A+ from the turnaround time, to accuracy, to making you feel like you’re their highest priority, I am really fortunate to have found these guys and really looking forward to have a long and fruitful relationship.

    Thank you guys!!

  1. I worked as a VA at VA Talks for almost three months. In fact, I was the only employee working there for two months, so I worked closely with the founders.
    Being a startup, there were few clients, and work load fluctuated wildly. So, some of the days, I didn’t have time to breath and some of the time I used to sit idle all day.

    I left VA Talks because of two reasons-
    First, I felt my talents weren’t fully utilized. Also, I used to work in the office all alone, for like 4-6 hours before someone showed up (The founders worked in night shift). It was kind of stressful.

    Second and the most important one, the work environment and work values. Since I got to know the founders more closely, I found that they are racist. They would make fun of their customers on their back and use the sentences like “Black people are like that only” or “Such a nig**r” for their clients of African decent.

    And also, the fact that they purposefully avoided the resumes of Muslim men and women while recruiting.

    Money obtained at the cost of personal values and principles isn’t worth it.

    1. Hi Pam,

      This is Furquan Ahmad from VA Talks, Operations Supervisor during the US business hours and I would like to answer to this query of yours.

      I am glad to hear that you could work closely with the founders of VA Talks. However, I regret to say that the image that you’ve portrayed of this company is very off the mark.

      As with any startup, work at VA Talks did fluctuate. However, since you used to work during the Asian and UK business hours, you weren’t quite aware of the workload that the other VAs, working during the US shift had to face. As a result, you felt that your talents weren’t utilized to its complete potential and that sometimes you found the work environment very stressful.

      I have something that I wish to tell you about the work environment and VA Talks’ values. My name is Mohammad Furqan Ahmad and I am a Muslim by religion and I have never ever faced any such racial discrimination issues that you have cited. As far as I know people from this company, there has never been any discrimination and we have all worked as a team, trying to support and motivate each other to give our best.

      We are here to make long lasting relationships with our business associates and under no circumstance can we be frivolous about our business and make fun of our colleagues or/and clients. For us money has never been the be all and end all for us at VA Talks and irrespective of whether we have 1 or 100 clients, we WILL NEVER compromise with our work ethics.

      We at VA Talks would like to wish you a successful and prosperous future ahead!

      Best regards,
      Mohammad Furqan Ahmad

    I met VA Talks a few months ago through my LinkedIn page with a message that stated, “Let’s Change the World Together,” which had somehow caught my attention due to the fact that I was also about to launch out on a business Adventure so who was better to take this adventure with, if not VA Talks.

    My sixth sense had sensed Honesty and Integrity in those words. Indeed, it was the wisest decision I have made because they have taken me to real heights technologically which had taught me things that I didn’t know, gave me valuable advice and tips that I needed for a new starter, which was extremely helpful for me the bottom line is the job is professionally and efficiently done at a reasonable cost which said it all. But most importantly I did not only find an Employees I also found a friendship that will be going the long way.

    Thank you, VA Talks!

    I have been using VA Talks for a little over 2 months and now, there is no way I can live without them.

    As a sole proprietor I was working till all hours of the night and morning, when my client load increased. I was hesitant about using a VA as I had read some horrible reviews online about VA horror stories.

    Ethan exceeds all expectations in ensuring that what I need done is done to an incredibly detailed and high standard. Many times he has gone over and above to get work completed for me. Not only does he help me with my work, but he is incredibly friendly and I now feel like I have a colleague in my “office”. I am always able to speak in person to him before my task is started and that makes me 100% confident we are both on the same page.

    I use VA Talks for WordPress, Magento and graphic design at the moment but will be starting to use them for social media content and travel arrangements soon. Ethan and VA Talks have given me so much help when I need it most and also returned my sanity!

    I cannot recommend these guys enough. Try them RIGHT NOW!

    I have truly enjoyed my experience with VA Talks. I came to them with a reasonably difficult task (statistics based), and they were willing to not only take on the task, but to do a wonderful job. And, I have to be honest, sometimes the tasks were tedious, but the attention to detail Ethan demonstrated was superb (he even noticed some errors in my work which I had not picked up – what a blessing!)
    Their communication is outstanding! I have never felt like I was being lead artsy, or that my task was not in good hands – Ethan often checked in with me, and Sam was great for touching base along the way to see how things are going.
    The hard work and attention to detail is of great value and I can highly recommend the VA Talks Team (both you, and your task, will be in good hands)!

    I’ve used VA Talks for nearly 4 months now across three businesses that I run and manage. I also use my VA extensively for personal management tasks too, such as travel arrangements.

    I use VA Talks services for three main areas: 1) Diary management & Scheduling appointments 2) (social media) marketing & 3) Data entry and CRM management.

    I would like to appreciate VA Talks’ team and my dedicated VA for having worked upon on my several projects and tasks smoothly that I needed to be focused on. Communicating with my VA and team is great and clear, I realised much greater benefit and leverage with VA Talks in these days.

    I tried quite a few VA companies to get my business tasks and day to day tasks done, but VA Talks have been much better among all, with strong communication, when it comes to getting support from overseas. The information was presented in a detailed fashion with support documents provided. The tasks were handled in a professional manner and quickly. Definitely going to stay with VA Talks!

    Highly recommended!

    I’ve been utilizing VA Talks’ services for a while now and they make my insane work stack really manageable and composed.

    While I have a tendency to do all my client’s administrative tasks, there have been numerous occasions that they have ventured into helping my clients (they basically do administrative work for me). I’ve discovered their way and abilities playful and sound. The staff on-board with them are exceptionally polite and at least comparable to what I anticipate from them. I’ve outsourced many time consuming tasks to them, so I can focus on the critical things for my business.

    In any case, to aggregate up this – I am 100% satisfied by their work so far and will be extending my utilization of their services over the coming months. 5 stars and a big thumbs up for VA Talks.

    I’ve had a fantastic experience with VA Talks so far. I’ve used them for little over 3 weeks now from making appointments, getting price quotations from different websites, booking in tradesmen, to booking a nice table at my favorite restaurant.

    Every time I have found that, they’ve done a very professional job with all my tasks- either asking clarification if I wasn’t clear with my instructions or actually going above and beyond what I’ve asked in the research and exceeding expectations.

    Lately, I’ve used them to do a research on the internet to find out a good pet store in Vegas from where I can buy “pet stuff” for both my cats, Thor and JT. xx

    The results with which they came up was really overwhelming and exactly what I imagined it to be.

    VA Talks has put together a top notch service- from the turnaround time to accuracy to making you feel like your their only and highest priority. I’d recommend and already have to many of my close friends and family.

    Well worth the money!

    I would like to talk about an exceptional service that I have located. I have been extremely happy with VA Talks so far and consider myself very lucky to have them supporting me. Ethan my dedicated VA is diligent, hard working, professional, responsible, accountable and friendly. I know I can rely on him to properly execute any tasks that are requested from my end with great communication skills. Despite the fact that he is working virtually for me, I feel really comfortable with him and it feels like I have a trustworthy person working for me.

    I hired VA Talks for my data entry work and have found them to be extremely helpful. Their research work is great and I love their presentation. At first, I was skeptical to use virtual assistant service and sharing any business information with them, but now that I have tried these guys, I can’t see my work getting done without them. They have helped me cut down on a lot of extra work, as a result my productivity has increased tremendously.
    I also needed a particular email campaign to be sent out to my customers for which I asked them to design few samples of a newsletter which I can use and they came up with some exceptionally good designs and gave me different options to choose from. So far VA Talks has been a great experience for me and I look forward for a long term relationship with them.

    I needed help with some business related tasks, so I was looking for virtual assistant companies on Google and found VA Talks. I contacted VA Talks and signed up to their VA 30 Hours plan as I needed some research related work to be done, which they were able to accomplish very effectively. The VAs on board have good communication skills and are always ready to raise questions if something is not clear to them, which made life easier for me in delegating tasks to them. Whatever tasks I gave them was completed on time with good communication back and forth.

    I have been working with VA Talks for quite some time now and they have been a great asset to me. Kudos to their service, I highly recommend them to everyone.
