FAQs

We are here to help you with all your queries

1. Why do you need a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is placed inside a company to offload some of the work off of the CEO and/or other team members. If you have tedious tasks that you need someone else to take care of or you are looking to scale faster, then hiring a team of VA’s will be a move that you need to make.

We have placed many different types of roles in the last year and one of the most popular roles is appt setting. Instead of having the sales rep send a ton of emails/messages, the VA takes over so the sales rep can focus on being on calls and closing more deals. For instance, our best appt setters book 10-20 appts a week! Appt setter is just one of the many positions we offer. If you need some graphic design work done, we can help. What about media buying and taking over your current ads, we got you covered.

The most important thing to remember is that when you are looking to grow the business it is an absolute MUST to find A players. This starts with your VA team since they are normally the first hirings an online business makes.

2. What are the common denominators our best clients have when it comes to successfully placing and keeping their virtual assistants?

The number one reason we see is that these business owners do not just hire from a place of desperation. These businesses/agencies/consultants already have proven processes, offers, systems and much more in place.

They truly NEED a virtual assistant to take a load off their back. It is a top priority for them to find A players. Whether it is appt setters, media buyers, graphic designers, data entry people, whatever it is… These people that are looking to hire whatever role they are looking for BECOME that role first before hiring. They dictate what the day to day looks like, what KPI must be met, and overall what this job will entail. They are not guessing. Data is what these business owners follow, not their emotions.

Overall the owners build the right SOP’s, processes, and KPI’s around the role they are seeking, so whenever the time comes to hire someone, the person has a roadmap for succession.

3. What does a part-time VS a full-time virtual assistant look like?

A part-time virtual assistant is someone who will work between 15-25 hours per week. Preferably on a set schedule but it does not have to be. This person may also have another job on the side. Most of our clients that start with part-time VA’s eventually grow this role to a full-time position if the company scales and the VA performs.

A full-time position is someone who will work between 30-40 hours per week. They focus on working in the business every single weekday. Weekends are off unless instructed on the interviews that this is a must, and the VA agrees

4. What tasks do the media buyers do on a regular basis?

They are checking the status of ads and making sure they are consistently performing. They also make tweaks to the copy, audience, targeting or whatever needs to be corrected. There is a KPI that must be met and that is up to the business owner to dictate.

55. When is the best time to hire an appt setter?

This is normally the first hire most agency owners make. As soon as you pick your niche & you have your offer in place, now it's time to set appts. There are many ways of doing this but like stated above, find where your audience is hanging around on social media. Most agency owners start with organic appt setters, meaning these guys send messages on FB, IG, LINK. They also prospect on FB groups, TIKTOK, and any other platform. These setters are using your scripts to get you more appointments on your calendar. The best setters are the ones who can hold a conversation on their own. These are the ones we find for our clients.

6. If the virtual assistant does not work out how does your replacement guarantee work?

We have a 6-week replacement guarantee so if the VA quits/gets fired we will replace this individual for free. Our team will be checking in with the both of you on a regular basis to ensure everything is working properly. We will replace up to three people for this role. Our goal is to place the best person for each role but the ultimate deciding factor is the business owner. If after the third replacement our company did not meet your standard, we will send you a full refund. The 6 weeks probation starts, the FIRST day our VA starts working for you. Not after payment.

7. How long does this process take?

FAVA moves F A S T. What that means is that after the payment is made, within 24 hours you will have VA’s for the role you are looking for in your inbox. These VA’s have gone through a thorough process before being sent to you and as soon as you tell us you are ready to interview, we will be conducting the interview on our zoom. We want to keep this process as stress free as possible, so all communication with the VA’s is done through us. After conducting the interviews, you are welcome to put these people through a certain skill test (you can also send a skill test before the interviews) and if they pass, it is time to hire! This whole process normally takes a week, at most 10 business days.

8. How much should I pay my virtual assistant?

This all depends on the role you are hiring for. The lowest our VA’s go for is $4 an hour. This is for more of a general VA (admin tasks). Appt setters start at $5 an hour and media buyers start at $6 an hour. The more experience and skill the person has, they will demand a bit more. Our job is to find quality people, NOT CHEAP people. FAVA will also negotiate with the VA on your behalf to make sure you're not over budget for this particular hire(s).

9. Why should we go with FAVA over Upwork /Fiverr/Onlinejobs or other platforms?

This is a question we get all the time… Our answer is simply two words -> TIME & EFFICIENCY. Of course you can go on these free websites and do your own research, but the most valuable asset for a business owner is their time. Instead of going through 100s of applications, videos, and conducting SO MANY interviews, why not pay a small ONE TIME fee to save you time so that within 24 hours you have people ready to be interviewed for the exact role you are looking for. There is also NO guarantee with these websites, and no extra resources, courses, support that you would get working with us. If we can save you time by finding you A players then our mission is accomplished.

11. What makes FAVA different?

The amount of care we have for our clients & our VA’s is what truly drives us. Our goal is to have a winning formula which looks like this… win/win/win scenario.
The client has to be happy with the VA. The VA has to be happy with the client.

This is the only way FAVA wins. Customer support is our #1 priority. Without happy clients/VA’s we do not have a business. We have been able to build a business (front end and back end) purely on word of mouth. FAVA is here to provide world class talent to world class businesses all done with the highest intent of integrity.

9. How often do I get paid?

This will be a decision your CEO will make. Most of the team members get paid once a month, if that is a problem, please bring this up during the interview. We do have people who get paid bi-weekly but it has to be agreed upon before getting hired.

This is 100% between you and the business owner.

10. What does the schedule look like?

90% of our clients are US-based meaning they work 9-5 EST. Some live in the west coast so the work schedule would be around 11 PST - 6 PST. Every client has a different schedule so it really boils down to them. We do have clients in the U.K and Australia, but not many. If you can not work US times, please make sure to put that in the application.

11. Do you only use PayPal to send payments?

No, we don’t. Our clients have different platforms like Xoom, WISE, Payoneer, Veem, Transferwise, WorldRemit, and many others. Please mention in the interview which platform is best for you. If you do not know, please find out before the interview so we can have you set up. WISE is the platform being used most.

12. What are the BENEFITS?

Since you are an independent contractor, there are no benefits to these jobs. You could get bonuses if the company that hires you offers bonuses. Pay raise will come within time but more importantly with better performance. We have team members that have 3-4x their initial starting pay.

Please discuss this on the interview so you have an idea of what type of incentives you could be offered.

13. How do you guys earn money if you are not taking a pay cut from us (VAs)?

We get paid off then initial set up cost and recurring insurance clause we have in place. Our clients also come back and get more VA’s from us and refer more business. We have been able to grow like this without taking a PENNY from the people we get hired. This will not stop. Our mission is to place 10,000+ from all over the world into remote jobs and help them increase their value so they can get paid more than the average person in their country.

14. What are some strategies for appointment setting?

This all depends on your niche. Some niches have a big  audience on Facebook. Others have it on LinkedIn. It is 100% on you to do  your own research and find where your audience is. Once you do that, craft an  offer and scripts that will get their attention. Test those scripts and see  if they are converting to actual appointments. If so, you might be ready for  an appt setter.
