Virtual work is fast becoming the norm.
In response, virtual assistant services are popping up all over on the internet. It seems easy enough, once you finally choose a service to use. Sign up. Get assigned an assistant. Tell them what to do. Get the work finished.
That’s it, right?
For some companies it might be, but that’s more an exchange of services rather than a working relationship.
Boldly is different from other virtual assistant services.
We’ve taken an approach that moves beyond assigning someone to you to do a bit of work, and instead, partner with you on a consistent path of growth. What sets us apart is our focus on culture, commitment, and a custom matching approach, all with a convenient and affordable startup process that will work for anyone.
Our Culture Sets Us Apart
Our team is at the heart of who we are.
People work best when they love who they’re working for. Because of that, we’ve been purposeful about developing a virtual company culture that trickles out to benefit our clients.
For starters, we don’t just have a pool of workers to assign you. That’s not how we operate for our clients, and it’s also not the way we view internal team members.
Iron sharpens iron, so the quality of our team matters. We only hire the best and most qualified, and that includes Fortune 500-level workers. We have team members with extensive backgrounds in the corporate world, government agencies, and working with C-level executives and busy founders.
“These are seasoned professionals who have made this their career choice, and they’re really passionate about building long-term successful partnerships with their clients,” said Boldly Team Leader, Cat Caraway.
We also pay attention to their skills, interests, and personalities, investing in our team with a system of support.
“It really benefits our clients because all they see is that they have this amazing team member really managing their business,” Cat said. “But behind the scenes, that team member has active support, a mentor, a coach, who cares about them and really just wants to make sure they’re on the right path.”
We want to contribute to our client’s success. When our team succeeds, so do our clients.
Our Team’s Commitment Makes A Difference
Because of that culture, Boldly team members are committed to working with their clients for the long term. Ask our team members, and they’ll tell you that one of the best things about being with Boldly is that people stick around.
When you contact Boldly and get matched with one of our team members, you don’t have to worry about when they’ll leave. You don’t have to deal with acclimating to someone new all over again. Many of our team members have been with us over three years, and some have been around since Boldly first started in 2012.
That’s almost unheard of in this industry.
This goes directly back to our culture. We’re about building lasting relationships among our team, and with our clients.
Our Custom Matching Program Benefits Everyone
It’s not uncommon for a client to reach out to us, hoping to find a team member who has an interest in their specific industry or line of work. More often than not, we can do that.
We’ve had clients in the activewear industry get matched up with team members passionate about fitness. We’ve had a client who worked with autistic children, whom we matched up with a team member who had an autistic child.
This has become such a hallmark of Boldly that we have shared these “serendipity stories” to let others know of the potential talent available to them. From a nonprofit founder to a public relations expert, we’ve had team members with the exact skills, knowledge, and personality to fit each unique client need.
Our matching process isn’t complicated, but it is unique.
We’ll meet with you for as long as it takes and listen as you tell us what you want and what is required. We’ll recommend one of our team members to you. But it’s not just a blind assignment.
We insist on you meeting your potential virtual assistant.
“It’s so important to have that first meeting so you know that you’re not just a match on paper, but also a match on personality,” Cat Caraway said, adding that it was important to know that “you’ll get along well and really want to be interacting with this person on a daily basis for years to come.”
Because we’re committed for the long-haul, the match has to be right. Just as you would interview and meet with the team you’d be working with when you start a new in-person job, you should do that with a virtual assistant. In fact, it might be more important with remote work, where some of the in-person communication cues are absent.
Our intent is to work with you and build your organization for years to come. That’s why meeting with your new team member is important, so that no one’s time is wasted in the future.
Our Approach Is Headache-Free Convenience
The best part of all of it is that we make it easy to find that perfect virtual assistant.
Instead of a regular hiring procedure, you simply contact us to get the matching process started. You don’t have to search for the best talent. We’ve already done that.
There’s no need to worry about compliance with legal issues related to contract workers, no matter what state or city you’re in. Our team members are W2 employees for Boldly; we handle all of the compliance issues.
And best of all, because of our subscription staffing model, you can find a virtual assistant that fits your budget. Our approach makes it possible for you to access that top-notch talent without breaking the bank. You can adjust your subscription as necessary, changing it as your organization changes.
We don’t view our work with you as set-it-and-forget-it. We’ll check back in with you to make sure things are going smoothly with your new virtual assistant.
All of this, only requiring one click to get started right now.
