Services and Skills Updates

Back to top

We are constantly looking for additional services and skills that Virtual Assistants can offer.  Whenever we add a new service to our list we modify the new and change registration forms to reflect these skills. 

This means that new members will be given the chance to include this new skill on their web page. Existing members will not have this new service added unless they go to the change details form and indicate that they now offer this service. 

To view the current services that Virtual Assistant Members can offer, Click Here.

If you have an idea for a new service which you think a Virtual Assistant could offer then you could benefit from our enhanced promotion scheme for free.  Submit your ideas here.

Below we will list any new services that we have added and the date they were included in our registers to help you keep up to date.   Click here to update and add your new skills and services.

Regional Register updates

Where there are enough Virtual Assistants to justify the work, we create regional registers for a particular country.  Long standing regional registers were the USA, Canada and UK.  But since then we have created regional registers for the following countries to satisfy the need of the increasing numbers of Virtual Assistants.
