WHAT IS the "Team In A Box" Business Management Service, as it relates to the Virtual Assistant Industry?
"Team In A Box" Business Management, is a service that was implemented by our company CEO, Ebony Gaynor. After being in the virtual assistant industry for over 11 years, and working with various business types, Ebony decided that the "anything goes, every service is available" way of doing business was no longer efficient for her business, or the business of her clients. Therefore, she decided to streamline and systematize the areas where her clients needed the most assistance. After identifying that sector, she built a solid team around those areas, that we now know of as the Virtually Perfected, LLC, "Team In A Box" Business Management Service, or VP, LLC, TIB, BMS, for short . As it relates to the virtual assistant industry, the TIB Managers are also virtual assistants who support business owners with their tasks, remotely – meaning they never have to step foot in your office! TIB Managers use technology to support their clients. If you are in need of support, but are not able to hire a full-time employee, don’t have the office space or equipment, then using a VP, LLC, TIB Manager is your answer. That way you don’t have to worry about break times, vacations, income tax or anything else!
WHY DO I NEED a "Team In A Box" Business Manager?
A TIB Business Manager can save you two of your most precious resources: time and money. As a business owner, you should be focused on your products or services and growing your business – not worried about the day to day administrative or operational tasks. Our TIB Business Managers are skilled, experienced and able to execute any and all tasks assigned to them. This gives you back those hours you've been looking for and helps you refocus on building your Brand.
WHAT CAN A VIRTUAL TEAM DO?
Tasks which do not require a physical presence & can be executed using a computer. Some of the most common tasks are: Data Entry, Calendar Management, Social Media Maintenance, Bookkeeping, Meeting & Event Planning, E-Newsletters, Internet Research, Database & Contact Management, just to name a few.
ISN'T IT MORE EXPENSIVE TO HIRE A VIRTUAL COMPANY THEN EMPLOYEES?
No it’s not. For employees, not only do you need to pay an hourly wage, but you have to pay for benefits, payroll, taxes, time not worked (vacation, holidays, sick), and administrative costs of recruiting, hiring and training not to mention purchasing equipment and furniture while adhering to mandates such as OSHA. While working with a VA Company is not intended to be a “cheap” alternative to getting support, it IS intended to be a convenient, cost-effective solution to your needs. A VA Company, sets fees based on the value they bring to you.
WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH A US BASED VA COMPANY AND NOT OUTSOURCE TO AN OVERSEAS VA?
Yes, you can find a Virtual Assistant cheap overseas, but you will have barriers like the ocean for one, as they cannot come to you if needed. Communication barriers, is another obstacle, as an overseas Virtual Assistant may not understand your U.S. business practices. With an overseas Virtual Assistant, you may spend more time (which equates to money) managing that person as you try to convey what your business needs are. Also with an overseas assistant, you don’t really know who is working for you. Because most overseas Virtual Assistants work for an outsourcing company, you may very well spend time managing your Virtual Assistant today only to have them be replaced tomorrow. You cannot feel confident knowing where and to whom you are sending your important business information.
HOW ARE THE HOURS TRACKED?
All tasks which are completed for you are time tracked – meaning your 'Team In A Box" will Start Timer when he/she begins working on your task and Stops Timer when the task is completed or he/she has switched to a different task. If the tasks takes 15 minutes and 43 seconds to go through and sort your inbox, that is the exact time which goes towards your monthly plan. You will only be charged for work performed and not a second more.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I RUN OUT OF HOURS? CAN I USE MORE HOURS THAN WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY PLAN?
No need to worry! If you ever need more hours during a particular month, simply ask your Team Manager to renew your plan. Simple as that. There are no extra charges or fees. Please note, although you can renew your plan, hours DO NOT carryover to the next month.
