1. I don’t know how having a Virtual Assistant works
Well, in a nutshell, at Admin Army, we specialise in providing monthly admin support packages customised to suit our client’s needs.
For example, we support the following:
- A booming husband and wife company by entering their client purchase orders
- A small landscaping business owner by managing new leads and booking site visits
- A large accounting firm by supporting its client’s onboarding journey
Depending on your tasks and the package option selected, we work with you to complete daily, weekly or monthly tasks as required.
Also, it is essential to note that communication is the key to a successful VA and client relationship. We will regularly update you on tasks and hours used throughout the month and value prompt replies, regular feedback and business updates to ensure we are completing your tasks flawlessly.
2. I don’t have the time to train a Virtual Assistant
If you don’t have the time to train a Virtual Assistant, this is a red flag that you need a Virtual Assistant even more!

The onboarding process can be completed within a week. Depending on the tasks the first month will involve training and fleshing out standard operating procedures, and then in month two, we are efficiently completing tasks as required.
You can start with outsourcing one task and then increase your monthly package to add additional hours when you have time to outsource additional tasks. We help you get time to hand over additional tasks because, with every task we take on, your load lightens.
During the onboarding process, you have the support of our VA Team Leader, who will organise the setup of any required software, email access and share drives. They will also assist with developing the standard operating procedures for your tasks and ensure the right Admin Army Virtual Assistant is selected for your business.
