View Full Version : I dont want to reinvent the wheel on VA's can you help?

I need web design, telemarketing, database management and a personal asst to handle my crap.
I called YMII today and I could barely understand them. Who has done this? who should I call. I listened to the book. I dont have a hard copy, which makes getting specifics hard. I am going to buy the book now (2 sales from me $$$$$) so I can have a paper copy to reference.
Thanks in advance for your info.
I used them before for other projects so I felt comfortable using Elance (http://www.elance.com/)
They were very polite and professional on the phone.
However, I was not happy with the Provider (Workerbees) $5.50/hr. missed every deadline, didn't follow most of the instructions.
Example: I asked for them report to me in 3 hrs. of start time.
After letting them go I left a feedback based on my experience. They got defensive and left terrible feedback about me. Saying I was out to screw people. I've been around the circle enough times to not taking these things personally and move on to the next employee....
I'm continuing my search for assistant for specific projects now to fish for someone I can use permanently.
Anyone who'd like to read or get a copy of my listing ( I copied from various different people who are looking too.) just shoot me an email, and I'll send you the information.
One major thing to remember (hind-sight is 20/20 )is most of the people that provide VA services out of India/China have never left their homeland and don't understand the level of service we're used to in the US. I am sure that's the reason why you want a team of VAs.
As far as the companies mentioned in the book is concerned they're having an Oprah experience. All of a sudden there is sizzle about them and they bought into the sizzle too.
It's OK to wait if you can't find the right person/company. And it's important to remember customer always set the price (this is true globally)
I hope this help.
