Pay-as-you-go services under one roof

We understand the challenges faced by small businesses, such as skills shortages and fluctuating workloads, and so we’ve devised a simple, effective solution: pay-as-you-go support services that you can use as much or as little as you need.

The benefits of working with us in this way include:

  • Access to an extensive range of services – from admin to marketing to finance – under one roof
  • High quality work delivered by a team of skilled professionals – all experts in their own field
  • A personal service tailored to your budget and specific needs
  • Flexible working arrangements with no binding contracts (= low risk)
  • Highly competitive hourly rates

Please visit our services section for further details about how we can support the growth of your business. You can also read testimonials from some of our clients.

Networking events for small businesses

Our GO Get Networking events have proved so popular that we’ve had to move them to a bigger venue this year. Aimed specifically at smaller businesses, the events are short and practical, with one hour of informal networking followed by a 15-minute talk on a useful subject.

Successful networking can play a major part in business growth, so why not make a positive start to the new year by booking onto our next event? GO Get Networking will take place at the Apex Hotel in Bath on Thursday 28 February. Click here for full details and online booking. We hope to see you there!

We’re always delighted to meet new faces when we’re out and about at larger business events too, and we’ll be attending Bath Business Expo on 21 March, and Business Showcase South West on 19 June. So if you’re there, and interested in finding out more about what we do, please come over to the GO Get Organised stand and say hello.

Happy New Year!

The advantages of using a Virtual Assistant via GO Get Organised

Our virtual assistants come with extra value added

We’ve already written about the benefits of using a virtual assistant (VA), and these are now pretty well established, with many small businesses discovering how much easier life can be with a virtual assistant on board. But what about the extra benefits of finding your virtual assistant through GO Get Organised?

The majority of virtual assistants are self-employed freelancers who work alone, but our virtual assistants are part of a larger team; this means that we can add extra value in several different ways:

1. We can find you a perfect match

Our virtual assistants come from all sorts of different backgrounds, with experience working in various different fields. We will choose the virtual assistant who we feel would be the best possible fit for your business needs, once we’ve discussed these in detail with you. Our matching process is based on:

  • The skills required for the job
  • The field in which you work
  • The culture of your team

Our virtual assistants can often offer much more than just admin skills; they might also have experience in IT, HR, finance or project management, for example. So we can also take this into account when matching you with your ideal virtual assistant.

We are experts in finding the right person for the job, so you can trust us to take care of this for you, instead of spending valuable time doing it yourself.

2. We can provide cover

Everyone needs to take annual leave and sick leave from time to time. When you have a virtual assistant who works alone, this can potentially be quite disruptive for your business, with no one around to carry out the tasks that they usually handle.

If you have a GO Get Organised virtual assistant, on the other hand, you get access to other members of the team who can provide cover while your usual virtual assistant is away. In terms of covering annual leave, we can help you plan for this and arrange for a handover so that things go smoothly; in terms of covering sick leave, we will provide the best service that we possibly can at short notice, as required.

Working with GO Get Organised means that you’re never completely dependent on just one person; we have a whole back-up team in place.

3. We can offer expert advice

The team at GO Get Organised includes professionals with years of experience working in many different fields, including finance, marketing, design, IT, social media and lots more. Your virtual assistant is part of this team, and can tap into this wealth of expertise whenever necessary.

We have an internal discussion board where team members can ask each other questions, we are all in contact via email, and we also get together regularly, for example at our GO Get Networking events. So if you need help with pretty much any business matter, your virtual assistant can get support from their expert co-workers.

If you’d like to find out more about our virtual assistants, and how you can tap into our team of experienced professionals, please contact us today.

GO Get Networking in 2019!

GO Get Networking is back in 2019, in a new venue!

GO Get Networking has been very successful this year, and we are delighted to continue running these events next year. The first event will be held in our new venue at the Apex Hotel (in the Lounge as you walk in on the right), on Thursday 28 February from 9:30 to 11:15am.

The format will remain the same, with over one hour of great networking in a relaxed environment, followed by a 15-minute talk at the end of the session, on a subject that is useful to small businesses.

As much as we would love to keep these events free, we have had to introduce a small charge to attend. The reason for this is simply to speed things up, so that everyone can spend their time networking rather than waiting for drinks. Tickets will cost £6.50, which includes tea or coffee and a mini pastry on arrival. We do hope that you understand and will continue to support these events.

Case Study – How using a Virtual Assistant can help you. GO Get Organised!

Tom Lewis
The Guild Co Working Hub

 

Naomi really got me. She understood my problem and chose well when she suggested working with Claire as my virtual PA.  I need someone who’s organised and knows how to pull everything together.

My problem was that I was spending too much time hiding behind routine-based work and avoiding the real work. I’m naturally disorganised, and I was spending more time on software systems, in an attempt to organise myself, than on actually doing the work.

Claire acts as a barrier for my email, filters out all the irrelevant stuff and actions everything possible. I’m no longer drowning in email – I can get up in the morning and delay looking at my inbox. I’ve even bought an alarm clock and I’m attempting to leave my phone in the kitchen overnight. Now when I look at my email first thing there are around 10 messages, whereas previously there would be 30 or 40.

Claire’s got a great CV. She’s responsible, independent, incredibly reliable, and senior enough not to be asking 40 million questions. She just gets on and does what is required.

She’s helped me to focus on clearing down my massive ‘to do’ list, she organises my diary, she’s done research for me, and she’s even taken over assessing all the software I buy to see if it would work for us.

I’m a bit of a control freak and not brilliant at delegating. But at fairly low cost and for no hassle I have found someone to trust who can take some of the burden of running the business off me without ceding control.

Employing people is scary because it seems like a lot of money, and there’s a lot of red tape involved. But GO Get Organised makes it easy, you are paying by the hour, everything is on the timesheet. It’s a great business model.  We agreed a certain number of hours at the beginning but it ended up being less than anticipated. Claire is a victim of her own success in terms of how efficient she is!

I’ve also recently started using Go Get Finance for my book keeping. As proof of how much I trust Naomi, I didn’t even look around. I know that they are reliable.
