Time etc’s wide scope of services and languages, price plan flexibility, and U.S.-based VAs with an average of 12 years’ experience make them tough to beat in the U.S. market.
Started by Barnaby Lashbrooke in 2007, Time etc hires its VAs based on high standards designed by Penni Pike, Sir Richard Branson’s former personal assistant of 30 years. The company has earned exceptional reviews on all fronts (Glassdoor, Trustpilot, etc.).
Their services include administration, data input, research, social media, and marketing to name a few. The VAs are college-educated, U.S.-based, native English speakers, though you can find many who have fluency in other languages if that’s what you need.
The company is proud of the assistants they offer. Each one has to pass a very strict, 10-step selection process, and less than 1% of applicants are approved. All of them are college-educated and have an average of 12 years of experience. These Time Etc assistants have worked for Facebook, Apple, IBM, AOL, and other major corporations.
Time etc provides a step-by-step guide that will help you decide which tasks to hand off to VAs. Their pricing model is a monthly package of hours ranging from 10 to 60, and unused hours roll over to the next month. The larger the package you buy, the lower the hourly rate you pay. You can assign unlimited tasks within your hourly plan, and you can even share your hours with someone else on your team.
Time etc’s customer manager will propose a list of VAs you can interview, so you’re in control of the selection. The norm is to work with that one primary VA for the long term, but you are able to switch at any time and even bring on additional VAs to fill specific talent needs.
