Found yourself so overrun with calls and tasks that it’s hard to accomplish everything in one working day? But you can’t hire a receptionist because you think they are too costly. This is a wrong idea as virtual assistants can be very affordable. The cost of a virtual receptionist depends on the tasks that you want to be completed, how experienced they are and even where they are from.
Some virtual assistants will do your calls, social media, accounting, and much more. These are the virtual assistants that will probably charge around $30-40/hour, sometimes more. So the first step in trying to find a virtual assistant and a price is to figure out what you want your assistant to do!
Here at BaseTend, we answer calls, book/cancel appointments, provide answers to general questions and take messages. We charge $1.50/minute for talk time. As soon as a call comes in and we answer, you are charge from that time until the call disconnects. You are not charged for any “after call work.”
If you are a small business who needs a receptionist to cover your calls, BaseTend is a great option for you. Why hire a full-time in-house receptionist when you might only receive 5-10 calls a day? That’s a lot of extra time you are paying for, for no particular reason.
We are very flexible and you can transfer your calls over at any time, or just when you are busy. We even have an option that’s called a “no answer transfer” this allows you to set it so that if you can’t answer your call in a certain number of rings, it will transfer to us automatically so the call doesn’t go unanswered! Having the peace of mind knowing your business calls are being taken care of is a great feeling.
Not many virtual assistants will allow you to try before you buy. BaseTend offers a 14-day free trial, so you have nothing to lose. If you aren’t satisfied within the 14 days, you simply walk away with no issues. Even after the trial, we are a pay as you go service. You pay for the minutes you use and nothing more. With no contracts, a free trial and a pay-as-you-go service, we are sure that you will not be able to imagine a time without a virtual assistant!
