Q: What is a Virtual Assistant (VA)?
A: A Virtual Assistant is a self-employed entrepreneur with a fully equipped home office and a
specific set of creative and technical skills to provide remote support services to busy clients.
Deciding to be a "Virtual Assistant" is choosing a life-style. You are not regulated by traffic patterns, dress codes, and arbitrary time management schedules. Your only goal is to satisfy each client's requirements as quickly and efficiently as possible and move on to the next project or support task.
A Virtual Assistant has excellent communication skills and is able to work independently. A VA must be self-motivated, extremely organized, detail oriented and take personal satisfaction in the goals achieved.
Q: Why should I use a Virtual Assistant?
A: A Virtual Assistant will save you time and money.
You do not have to struggle with technology when a Virtual Assistant can provide the expertise and efficiency you need to get the job done quickly and economically.
You do not have to provide training, computer equipment, costly office space, employee benefits or full time wages.
You work with your VA on specific projects for the hourly rate and time period you both agree to.
Q: What are the costs to me?
A: Your only cost will be for the hours I work directly on your project.
A project cost and time estimate will be provided for your approval before any work or costs begin.
Q: How are you any different from all those websites and spam emails promising the world for $20 to $2000?
A: I am a real person that you can talk to with real referential clients.
My reputation for absolute honesty is a vital part of my professional and personal self worth.
My goal is to make sure that each client is satisfied with the work I have done and trust that they have received the best service possible.
Q: What do I have to commit to?
A: Your only commitment is to work with me to provide project requirements and to verify the results at several stages during development to insure that what is delivered is what you requested.
We will work directly by phone and email for only the time necessary to communicate the project requirements.
We will establish the project deliverables, hourly rate and time frame that is acceptable to both of us before any costs begin.

Q: Does ARTech handle every support service I might need?
A: No not everything - yet. But the service list is growing!
The first thing we will do is talk about your business and identify your primary needs to see if my skill set answers those needs. I will ask lots of questions and provide information about me as well as my business goals and practices.
If you identify a need that doesn’t fit into my area of expertise, I can coordinate the project for you by locating and managing the additional service you need. Or if there doesn’t seem to be a good fit, I will put you in touch with a network of talented VAs.
