What is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a self-employed professional who provides administrative, technical, or creative support services to clients remotely. VAs work remotely, communicating with clients via phone, email, or online tools. With their specialized skills, they offer various services, like bookkeeping, social media management, customer service, or website design to name a few. VAs provide a cost-effective way for businesses to access a range of support services without the need for in-house staff.
