Assistants - A Great Tool for Freelancers!
Oh how easy it is to have an assistant, you just tell them what to do, and they’ll do it! It’s just a shame that you have to hire someone full time to do it… Well, that might have been true in the past, but that isn’t the case anymore!
We scoured the internet for the best places to find virtual assistants and we came across a website called fancyhands.com. One of Fancyhands strengths is its pricing structure. Fancyhands has set up its pricing up so that you only pay for the request that you make.
Why It's Good For Freelancers
So let’s say that you subscribe to the Fancyhands subscription of 15 requests a month. For 50 dollars you get to request 15 tasks be completed. It doesn’t matter how time consuming the task is, you still only pay the flat monthly price of 50 dollars.
That means that you can get your assistant to do time consuming research, administrative tasks, restaurant reservations, travel itinerary management and a whole lot of other stuff. With just 50 dollars a month, you can escape a lot of the busy work that comes with Freelancing.
This one is built around having a person across the internet do things for you, what if you need things to be done around your house? Well, that is where Taskrabbit comes in. Taskrabbit.com is a website that allows you to hire people to do things around the house.
TaskRabbit - A Gift For The Busy Freelancer
With Taskrabbit, you can hire people to take care of your garden, help you move, clean or even go and pick up groceries! You can basically set the person to work doing all sorts of different things around the house! With this, you can focus your mind on making the best of your freelance while being safe in the knowledge that your house is being taken care of.
The Quality Of The Service
Now, you’re probably wondering about the quality that comes out of these programs. We contacted fancyhands and found out that the tasks you give their workers will be completed with the highest quality possible. However, they do also say that they are human and that not every task is going to be completed to perfection.
They do say that if you’re unsatisfied, you can contact them and they will do whatever they can to make your experience better. This means that if you, as a freelancer, is unhappy with a service they can compensate you with more time spent on the task or a refund for the task asked.
When it comes to taskrabbit, you can basically pick the person yourself. So, if you like the traits and skills of the person displayed, you hire them! The risk of getting a person that isn’t very good only exists if you choose a person that hasn’t received many reviews. That’s because all of the workers are first vetted and then open to reviews, which means that if you don’t do a good job, you will likely not be getting another.
We hope you enjoyed this look at the different services! By using any of them (or both at the same time) you can be sure that you’re able to focus on the tasks most profitable to your business. You can also check out the the best guide to become a freelancer!
