YourRemoteAssistant is a virtual assistant company in the Philippines. The company maintains a sales office near San Francisco, but all the work is done overseas. They’ve got their start in 2008.
YourRemoteAssistant specializes in administrative tasks such as calendar management, data entry, and transcription. Their virtual assistants can also do web research, event planning, customer support, and more.
The rates are competitive, with a 20 hour a month package starting at just $209, and a full-time 160-hour package running $1149. The company gives a discount on your first month of service for some of the higher hourly plans, and there are no set-up fees or long-term contracts.
YourRemoteAssistant.com will also quote one-time projects on an a la carte basis.
How it works is the company assigns you a VA based on your job description and requirements. In a way, it’s nice not to have to do any interviewing, but in another way, you might not be getting the best fit candidate.
You’ll get to work primarily with a dedicated virtual assistant, but the team environment allows for a backup at no additional charge.
Initially I thought the company might have been out of business because I didn’t hear anything back after contacting them via email, but it looks like the response just got lost in the ether; I just got a note from the founder Alex Brutin saying they are indeed alive and kicking!
