Get Ahead Client

8 reasons our clients love us

In the month of Get Ahead VA’s 8th birthday, we’d like to celebrate by looking back at some of the lovely things our clients have said about us over the years. We pride ourselves on doing good work for all our clients, and when they’re happy we love to hear about it! So here are 8 quotes from our clients about why they love Get Ahead VA.

“Working with Get Ahead VA has been a godsend. I simply did not have the budget to hire a part-time dedicated person to focus on my social media needs, or the time to manage them. My VA designed a social media strategy for me. Social media marketing is now an effective part of our business strategy, thanks to Get Ahead VA.”
—Martha, FabLittleBag

“The great thing about Get Ahead VA is that they are an extension of your team. With the fluctuating demands on human resources which are typical of start-ups, we prefer to invest in staff who align with our core business, and outsourcing everything else is a great idea. We are making good progress and that is proof of the great partnership we have with Get Ahead VA.”

What situation was your business in when you came to Get Ahead VA?

SmallOutside.com is a start-up IT consultancy company with some very big plans ahead, and so we wanted to maintain focus on our offering (i.e. IT services) and off-load work that was not directly relevant to our core strengths. There is always so much to do when starting up a company, and we were looking for a reliable partner who we could lean on for help with both the administrative and creative activities.
