The short answer is: Yes, you can get a dedicated virtual assistant if you’d like one.
The longer answer: Yes, and no. It depends, and it’s totally up to you.
When hiring a virtual assistant from Mexico, Central America or South America through Virtual Latinos, you get to decide whether you’d like to hire an assistant that only works for you and your company, or if you’d like to share it.
So is it a dedicated or shared virtual assistant?
To keep it simple, if you hire a virtual assistant to work for you for 40 hours a week, which is considered full-time work, you’d be essentially hiring an assistant to work only for you – thus we’d considered that a “Dedicated virtual assistant”.
Yet, the assistant could still decide to work additional hours either before or after working with you, and thus you could consider that to be a “Shared virtual assistant”.
When not hiring one of our virtual assistant full-time, either our Agency team or the assistants themselves may find additional work opportunities with other clients. When this occurs, our assistants would be considered a “Shared” assistants, as they’d share part of their time with you and part of their time with others.
If you’d like to hire a dedicated virtual assistant, you’ll likely need to offer the assistants full-time work and/or wages that are above the average, so that they’re able to earn the level of income they’re looking for.
In reality, it doesn’t matter what labels or descriptions you choose to use, what matters is whether you’re interested and able to hire a virtual assistant for full-time work (40 hours a week – and thus considered “Dedicated”) or part-time work.
