There aren’t enough hours in the day.

Thank goodness you can use some of ours. I mean, imagine if you had to run an entire business all on your own. Like, not just the strategy and planning, but all of the itty bitty technical tasks too. Nightmare.

Siobhan James-Lynn, Co-founder & Virtual Assistant

You want to do more… you just can’t fit it in.

When did it all get so… busy?

You started your business a while ago now. And you did it all on your own.

You wrote every blog post, every autoresponder, every ebook yourself.
You spent hours working out how to get that bloody opt-in plugin to behave.
You wrote guest posts and grovelled to be featured on podcasts and vlogs and top ten lists.

You would have given up your firstborn child
if you thought it’d get you a retweet from Pat Flynn.

And then, after a lot of blood, sweat and hustle… it finally started working.
You built it and, at last, people started to come.

Gradually, at first. It was manageable.

But a few months later (a year?! Has it been that long?), you look up and realise…
You don’t have to time to pass wind, let alone grow your business even more.

You need an extra set of hands.

Charlotte Clark, Virtual Assistant

But you’ve done everything yourself so far, so how can you trust someone else to get things right?

To do it all exactly how you like it?

Outsourcing is scary.

It’s a big step.

From being your own island to inviting some internet stranger aboard and hoping they don’t mess up a good thing.

You need someone reliable and just as focused on quality as you are.

We get that.

We get that.

We’re not your average virtual assistants (no, really).

For a start, you might’ve noticed there’s more than one of us *gasps*.

You’ll still get your own dedicated virtual assistant, but they benefit from a whole team of other virtual assistants to support them.

Every now and then your virtual assistant might call on a team member to help out with a bit of work, or to get some advice on one of their tasks.

We think there’s strength in numbers.

Working as a part of a network of virtual assistants means we’re able to work more efficiently, while you still get that dedicated VA experience (super important).

Joanna James-Lynn, Co-founder & Virtual Assistant

Okay, but how are we different?

Reliability

Other virtual assistants might get sick and need time off, but us?

We’re invincible.

Just kidding. But the fact that we’re not flying solo means we won’t leave you hanging on sick days, holidays or when we decide this isn’t the career for us and apply to be astronauts or something.

A Taskerly VA isn’t just for Christmas. A Taskerly VA is for life. Or until you give it all up to become an astronaut.

Quality

Handing over any part of your business is a worry. What if the quality goes out the window? What if standards slip?

Don’t worry; we bet we’re just as picky as you are about getting things right.

We’re the kind of VAs who stress about split infinitives, wonky margins and misplaced semicolons.

I mean, did you catch that correct semicolon usage up there? Talk about fancy.

Experience

You: “Hey, I want to try out [latest marketing tactic] for my product launch. Have you done anything similar before?”

Other VA: “Sorry, no. I’m happy to try it out, though.”

Taskerly VA: “No, but I know there’s someone on our team who has. I’ll be able to ask them anything we’re not sure about. I could even ask them to take the lead on this to make sure we really nail it.”

*high fives all round*

The proof is in the pudding.

Ursula Carmona, Blogger at Home Made by Carmona

Ursula

Home decor and organisation blogger

This is Ursula “I-bet-I-can-make-it-myself” Carmona. She started her home decor blog four years ago and has absolutely blown it out of the water since then. We’ve been working with Ursula now for two years and we’ve loved every minute of it.

So how do we make Ursula’s life easier?

We pin all of Ursula’s latest blog posts and submit them to sites like craftgawker to make sure they get the best possible reach. Ursula has tons of evergreen content, so we automatically recycle her blog posts to be shared on social media using Edgar. We keep Edgar running smoothly by uploading new content and making sure the right categories are switched on at the right time.

Once a month, we also create a round-up newsletter to go out to her 5,000+ email subscribers.

Next up is helping Ursula engage with and moderate her online community. That means managing incoming enquiries and moderating her Facebook group (570 members and growing) — that’s approving new members, checking for bad language, and removing members if they break the rules. Hardcore.

Every now and then we’ll also help Ursula out with some of the “bigger picture” stuff, like reaching out to magazines or arranging sponsored blog hops. All in a day’s work.

You can’t imagine how freeing it is to know that your business is in great hands! I finally get to focus on the things I am best at and leave the rest in the capable hands of Jo and the team at Taskerly. Even better, every hair-brained idea for my site I throw at them, they run with it and make me look brilliant. Gotta love it! I don’t know what I’d do without Taskerly.

Laurence Bradford, Blogger at Learn to Code With Me

Laurence

Self-taught techie and edtech blogger

Laurence is the busiest person we know. She started blogging about learning to code in 2014, and now runs her blog, hosts a top-ranked podcast, regularly writes articles for Forbes AND holds down a full-time tech job.

How do we help Laurence run her business?

We started managing Laurence’s social media back in 2015 – sharing her latest blog posts across all of her platforms, and spending time each month curating high-quality articles from around the internet that we know her audience will love.

Fast forward to 2017 and we’re responsible for Laurence’s sponsorship deals – managing podcast sponsors and arranging sponsored guest posts. We approach the big names in EdTech and pitch sponsorship deals on Laurence’s behalf, then guide them through every step of the process. That covers the agreements and invoices, writing advert scripts, and adding final touches to guest posts.

We help with the non-sponsorship stuff too, like writing podcast show notes, keeping articles up to date, and helping Laurence manage her inbox. Basically anything to give her a bit more bandwidth for her bigger picture.

Oh hey, and a bunch of other people who like us too.

“One of the most difficult things you face when you have your own business is trusting someone enough to help you run it, so that you can get on with the work!

I was lucky enough to find Taskerly and they made it easy. My Taskerly virtual assistant is thorough, responsive, proactive and intuitive. This is intelligent 5-star executive support.

I feel we have a true partnership. My VA ‘gets’ my work and what I do, and has given me the most amazing help and support from marketing and website updates to social media and daily administration. She is highly professional and I recommend her without reservation!”

Mary Joyce

Consultant, Leading Minds

 

“Jo is smart, efficient, creative, and has replaced me in many parts of my online business.

In all cases, she’s doing a better job than I was!

Jo has done graphic design, branding, social media, web design, and more for me. No matter what challenges I throw at her she seems to totally kill it every time.

I’ve been especially impressed with Jo’s blog research and copywriting skills. She is truly amazing!

I wouldn’t hesitate to call her my secret weapon.”

Ethan Waldman

Blogger, TheTinyHouse.net

 

Earlier this year I decided to take the plunge and work with a VA for the first time. I’M SO GLAD I DID! Jo and the Taskerly team have made me love my job again.

Jo takes care of the tasks that need to be done that I simply don’t have time for while I’m growing my business. She is a superb writer, super-fast, and she must be an organizational genius (and professional juggler) that she takes everything I throw at her and makes sense out of it. She gets things done way faster — and often better — than I would do them myself… and I know if there is something she doesn’t know, someone on the team does.

All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you!

Kim Carroll

TESOL Trainer, English For Life

Delegating is one of the hardest things for me to do, but I feel great delegating to the folks at Taskerly! I know I’m in great hands.

Siobhan is fabulous and very knowledgeable on many levels. When one project (an analysis) went a little bit sideways through no fault of her own, she went above and beyond the call of duty to rectify the situation.

Siobhan is the first person I contact whenever I have a project that can be outsourced, and I know I’m going to get a thorough job done in a timely, professional, and also fun way.

I feel confident giving tasks of all levels of complexity to Taskerly!

Our pricing and payment system.

Pay as you go

We don’t lock you in with retainers or packages. Instead, we use a pay-as-you-go system.

Buy as many hours as you want up front, whenever you want. Hours don’t expire, so you can use them whenever you want or need to.

All we ask is that you give us a heads up if you know you have a big project coming up and you’ll need way more hours than normal.

Easy top-up system

Each week, we’ll send you a report to let you know how much time we’ve spent on your projects and how much time you have left.

You can also opt to have a detailed report, showing you exactly how we spent that time.

At the bottom of your reports, we’ll include a link to our payments page, where you can top up using PayPal or a debit/credit card.

Tiered hourly rates

Seems like a weird way of phrasing it, right?

The thing is, we've been doing this for a while now. And that's given us great insight into the kinds of clients we're able to do our very best work for.

We do our very best work when we click with our clients.

So we only get that ball rolling with clients where we truly get them, their business, and what they're trying to achieve.

Tell us about your business and we'll see if we've got the perfect VA for you.
