The company was founded by Joanna Finch, and their target customers are entrepreneurs, small to medium-sized businesses, and real estate agents in the US and Canada.

How WoodBows Works
WoodBows has a simple 4-step onboarding process, and it takes less than an hour to start working with their team of assistants.
Their process looks like this:
- Sign up for a free trial.
- Send a list of tasks you want to be completed over.
- They assign a team of VAs to complete your work and share their contact details with you.
- You can go about your business while the work is completed. You can send more tasks and work with your team of VAs during this process.

To give you an idea of the areas they specialize in, they group their services into the following categories:
- Graphic and web design
- App developing
- Software development
- Digital marketing
- Data entry
- Customer care
- Content writing
- General virtual assistant services
WoodBows Plans and Pricing
WoodBows have pricing plans for weekly or monthly, and part-time or full-time assistants. You can also choose between hiring an assistant based in the Philippines or the US.
A complete list of their pricing plans at the time of publishing are:
- 5 hours per week for $49.90 ($9.99 per hour)
- 11 hours per week for $99.90 ($9.08 per hour)
- 80 hours per month for $799.99 ($9.99 per hour)

- 160 hours per month for $3,998.90 ($24.99 per hour)
The contrast in cost between using US and Philippines-based assistants is very evident looking at their plans.
If you’re working on a tighter budget, you can work with an overseas assistant for $9.99 per hour. If you prefer to keep your team in the US, hourly rates start at $29.99.
WoodBows are so confident you’ll be happy with their services they offer a 200% 30-day money-back guarantee. They also offer a free trial, and with no contracts, you can cancel anytime.
WoodBows have positioned themselves in an interesting place in the market offering both US and Philippines-based VAs.
The most similar service is TaskBullet, which also has both US and Philippines-based staff. Instead of weekly or monthly plans, Task Bullet sells “buckets” of hours you can use until you run out, and refill as needed.
At $1500 a month for a full-time virtual assistant in the Philippines, WoodBows is priced higher than many other competing services. The popular option for do-it-yourselfers is OnlineJobs.ph, where you can recruit candidates to your job and pay them directly (often in the range of $400-1000 a month for full-time).
Of course, this comes with the drawbacks of not having any company infrastructure or management layers in place.
