How There is Talent Compares to Other Virtual Assistant Services
In recent years companies have realized the benefits offered by virtual assistants. However, we know that choosing the right virtual assistant services is not so easy. This is because every company has different needs.
On the one hand, some companies prefer bilingual virtual assistants while others prefer only English speaking virtual assistants. Some are driven by the price of virtual assistant services. Others are driven by the time zone, plans, skills offered, and more. It’s a never-ending list of requirements that virtual assistants must meet. And like everything else in this world, “there’s no such thing as too much fun”.
This is why we compare There Is Talent with some of the best known virtual assistant services such as Virtual Latinos, UAssist.Me, UpWork and Fiverr, to help you choose the best virtual assistance service.

What is the best virtual assistant service?
We have already presented a comparison between the virtual assistant services. Now it is time to choose.
If you need to hire a virtual assistant, we recommend that you hire a virtual assistant services agency and not a freelance agency like UpWork or Fiverr. This is because agencies like There Is Talent know what your needs are and how the work of a virtual assistant is. By hiring a virtual assistance agency you will have more guarantees regarding the process of recruiting, hiring and managing the virtual assistant. In addition, rates are usually more consistent and flexible in terms of hours worked per week or month.
On the other hand, it is a good idea to hire virtual assistants from Latin America since they work in the U.S. time zone. More importantly, virtual assistants from Colombia offer other advantages such as the neutral accent of Bogota, the friendly personality of Colombians, their similarities with the North American culture, and their experience with the US and Canadian markets.
In addition, virtual assistant services from Latin America are usually more economical, this without compromising the quality of service. In addition, you will find virtual assistants with knowledge in digital marketing, business, customer support, content creation, and much more.
For all these reasons, we recommend you hire the services of a virtual assistance agency such as There Is Talent to be more productive and grow your business. If you are ready to do so, please book a call with our CEO Claudia Real.
