Virtual Assistant for Writers

Writing is heavy work. It requires intense concentration, a distraction-free environment, and enough energy left over to handle the administrative and business duties that come with making writing work. In other words, it helps to have someone on your side.

Enter the Virtual Assistant. These days, writers can do just about anything they want to do over the computer. They can sign contracts, find work, and deliver their writing electronically. That means that just about anything a writer can do, a VA can do.

But how does hiring a virtual assistant work for writers, and what does the process look like? Here’s what you’ll need to know.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the service work?

Prior to allocating Live Agents to your project, we undertake a full audit of your requirements & any systems or processes we need to put in place to ensure we best represent you and your company.

We have developed a process to help us collate all the information agents will need to answer the queries of your website’s visitors correctly and efficiently; please do take some time to go through the questions and provide detailed answers to each. The more information we have, the better equipped we will be to service your website visitors.

Why should I hire chat agents for my website?
Many businesses don’t have the staff available to have a real live person ready and available to answer incoming chats at all hours of the day. When you hire our team of highly trained chat agents your visitors will be able to chat live with a real live person when you or your staff are unavailable. You can have our agents answer all incoming chats or use our agents only when your staff is unavailable to answer. You set the schedule and we follow it!
What is the pricing for hiring live chat agents?
  • $1 an hour – 24X7-365 (168 hours a week) – $728/month
  • $1.10 an hour – Evenings and Weekends (128 hours a week) – $610/month
  • $1.50 an hour – Double-Shift (80 hours a week) – $520/month
  • $2.20 an hour – Full-time (40 hours a week) – $380/month
  • $3.00 an hour – Part-time (10 hours a week) – $129/month
Why is the pricng for hiring live chat agents so inexpensive?
We are able to offer pricing as low as $1 an hour because one agent can answer several chats from multiple companies at the same time. This is what keeps our pricing so low. You are sharing the cost of hiring a live chat agent with other companies also using the service.
How many chats will you accept from my website at the same time?
Our agents will answer up to 2 concurrent chats at a time.
How are your agents trained to be able to answer questions from my visitors about my products or services?

During the signup process you will be asked to provide information about your business. Think of it as FAQ’s. You tell us what type of questions we can expect from your website visitors and provide the answers to those questions.

Our project managers will review your website and add any information we find pertinent to your business or service offering to the knowledge base. The knowledge base is basically a database of information about your business or service. This information is available to any agent that answers an incoming chat from your site.

This is an ongoing process. All of our agents are trained to add any additional information they learn about your business or service to your knowledge base. Typically within 5 to 10 days of starting the service our agents can answer most questions easily.

What if agents are unable to answer customers questions?

There will be times when our agents won’t know the answer to a question being asked and we will need more information from you or your team.

In these cases our agents are trained to get the name, email and phone number from the visitor and explain to them that we will follow up with them as soon as possible regarding their question or issue.

If the issue is urgent we will contact you right away using the contact information you provided when signing up for the service. We can then add any information we learn during this process to the knowledge base for your site.

In the future if the same issue or question arises our agents will be prepared with the proper answer. Our agents are trained to get the correct information to your visitors. We never “guess” the answer.

Can agents proactively engage with visitors?

Absolutely – we will help you to setup triggers to automatically engage with visitors based on the page they are on.

We can work together to optimize engagement rate, and ensure the right message is sent at the right time.

What hours are the chat agents available?

Our agents are always available to answer chats on your behalf. We never close. We provide live answering services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Do I have to sign a long term contract?
No. You pay for the service on a monthly basis. There are no lengthy contracts to sign.
Do you charge for lead capture?
Currently we are only offering live answering in English due to demand. We will be adding more languages in the near future however as we continue to scale other languages.
Which languages do your agents speak?
No we never charge you for capturing a lead. We don’t charge on a per lead basis, just the flat monthly rates outlined on this page.
Where are the Chat Agents based?

Our chat agents are mainly in India, and are always recruited and vetted by us. We do not outsource our hiring. The majority of our VA team are university educated and have previous customer service experience.
