There was a time when there was no such thing as Virtual Assistants Services Philippines. The idea of a Virtual Assistant was unknown and most people in the business world assumed it was just one of those get-rich schemes that were going to get blown up. As if that were not bad enough, now here was another scam going on, one that promised big results with little effort on the part of the client. Little did most people know that the so-called Virtual Assistants in the Philippines were mostly middle men who charged a little extra for their services but never did anything substantial for their clients’ businesses. This goes to show how little they really know about the field and it also goes to show how much things have changed since then.
Back in the old days, there was a need to know someone personally in order to get code access or to help in the management of the company’s remote branches. If you needed help with accounting or payroll, then you had to find a payroll clerk that would be willing to go out and travel to remote branches. You would then be charged with a hefty retainer and would have to make the long trip. In most cases, you would also have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and remain strictly confidential.
Today, the Virtual Assistants in the Philippines is much different. The need to know someone personally has been gone. Virtual Assistants in the Philippines work independently, they don’t need to sign non-disclosure agreements, and they are very rarely charged with any forms of retainer. They are very much on their own. In fact, many of them have their own office space of their own where they can conduct all their business from. All they need to do is make requests at whichever branch nearest to their area and they are in charge of doing everything for your company.
Some companies in the Philippines only hire Virtual Assistants in the Philippines if they fit into the specific profile that they are looking for. For example, if they are in the sales or marketing department, then they would only hire a Virtual Assistant from the Philippines. This is because the Philippines is one of the fastest growing markets for outsourcing and because of the low cost of employing Filipino workers. Now, the Philippines has become the new “vertical income” star in the IT world… category one.
Today, with the advancement of technology, we are seeing more advancements in the field of outsourcing. A lot of people want to get code based outsourced from overseas. Companies also prefer to outsource certain tasks because they don’t have enough time to go and train their own employees on how to use certain technologies. With the aid of an effective outsourcing company, they can get code based offshore projects done in a matter of days – compared to say, two or three years ago.
With the help of the Internet, you can easily find a reliable and reputable provider who will be willing to offer you a professional remote workmate. When I say professional remote workmate, this means someone who is a skilled professional in the field of IT (Information Technology) and can easily handle the technical aspects of your project. Remember that with the aid of the Internet, you can now find people who are looking for a job or those who have recently been hired by another company (to fill a position). They may be looking for a short term contract, a permanent contract or anything in between. You can also find a legitimate remote workmate who can offer you their services for a monthly fee.
The technology has evolved a lot since then. If you want to find a legitimate remote worker, check their resume for samples or references. Also make sure that they are capable of handling whatever task that you are looking for them to do. Check their profile and references to make sure that they are capable of delivering quality services or work for a certain company that you are working with in order to get code.
