A whole heap of happy customers - you could be one, too!

Very impressed with the quality and professionalism

Like Marion, I work in the Virtual Assistant world and have always created and managed my own website. This time around I decided it was time for a more professional and polished website.

When it came time to update my website, I looked no further than My Virtual Assistant. I had seen Marion’s new website for herself and loved it.
I downloaded everything from my old website and Marion then took care of the rest, making the whole process very easy for me.
I have been very impressed with the quality and professionalism of My Virtual Assistant.
Marion has created a stunning website for my company, CU4Admin Limited, which showcases my services and expertise.  She was attentive to my needs, responsive to my feedback, and delivered the project on time and within budget.
If you are in the market for a new website, I highly recommend Marion to anyone looking for a reliable and creative virtual assistant - she will take care of you."

Incredibly patient and thoughtful

Marion helped us set up a website for a client we were working with.

Her style was incredibly patient and thoughtful, and we, as well as our client, are delighted with the outcome.

Marion's style and expertise sets her apart

I'd researched websites for inspiration and 'wow factor', but none ticked the boxes.

Being fussy was punishing, picturing that flawless website got me all muddled, but I'd know-it-when-I-see-it.

I needed a designer who wasn't gonna waste my time and money, and I wasn't disappointed.

All I said to Marion was, I want a website that's fun, colourful, and captivating.  She nailed it first draft. 

Marion made it festive, cheerful, entertaining, engaging, and loved by so many. 

This site has taken the workload off my shoulders, with no more long explanations, thanks to the PDFs she added.

Marion is a great people-person, top communicator, and made everything simple and easy to follow. 

She is incredible, nice to work with, and got back straight away. 

My site is beyond belief, better than words can say, the best website I have ever seen and it's mine - so proud!!

Look no further.  I don't know how she did it, but she did, and that sets her apart.

To have the best, you need the best, and that's Marion Jackson!

Forever grateful.

Second website for NZPGS

Marion created our website some years ago (2015), and we didn’t hesitate to reach out again for our refresh.

Marion helped us navigate layouts and guided us on increasing visitors and rankings in search engines.

Already received lots of positive feedback from our clients and potential new ones.

'MM - Magical Marion' is your one-stop shop

After 20 years of working hard in my business, I procrastinated over my website.

It was always something I wanted to do, but I thought it would be impossible for anyone to package together what I actually do, as it is so diverse and suited to many demographics.

That was until I came across Marion.

Nothing was too much trouble and all the things I thought were impossible, Marion accomplished promptly, in a friendly way with ease and assurance.
Marion made what I tried to tell people what I do, come to life in an effective, easy-to-follow website.

This was all done over the phone and she was able to capture my essence and turn it into a website I’m really proud of.

Not long after working with Marion, she became ‘MM - Magical Marion’ to me.

If you’re looking for a web designer look no further - Marion is your one-stop shop - she also designed my logo and business cards, which I love.

My website is looking better than it ever has

I built my own website and knew I needed some help, so Marion did an audit of the layout for me.

Marion, I honestly can’t thank you enough!!  I’ve learned so much from your audit and your advice.

Over the years I have taught myself how to build my website, however, there was so much I didn’t know. I do now, thanks to all of your help.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and my website is looking better than it ever has.

I absolutely recommend that you work with My Virtual Assistant, you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you again.

Marion delivered a very smart, professional looking website

We own a well-established specialist engineering business in Avondale, Auckland.  Our website was very old and outdated, it did not promote our business nor showcase our work well at all.
Our primary motivation for updating our website was for recruitment purposes.  When trying to attract good talent to our business we expected that candidates would view our website to better understand the nature of our work, we wanted to present in a way that would be appealing to candidates.
We engaged Marion Jackson at My Virtual Assistant to start afresh with designing a new website.  She quickly understood what we required, recommended a cost-effective approach, and started to design what we needed.
We supplied photos of our work but Marion led the charge on all the design and creative work, she worked quickly, was proactive and responsive, and ultimately delivered a very smart, professional-looking website that showcases our work perfectly.
The company logo needed a refresh, so Marion restyled our logo, providing additional options using colours and fonts consistent with our company name, which is already sign-written on the front of our building.  She provided various logo files, along with a brand guide sheet.
We recommend Marion at My Virtual Assistant, she did a great job for us.

Best Virtual Assistant ever

A testimonial is totally appropriate - we think you’re MARVELLOUS!
Marion made our life so easy.  We needed a website to catch our social media business enquiry.
She put forward a great format, intuitive advice, and a cost structure that we couldn’t say 'No' to.
We have found her speed and communication to be phenomenal.
Needless to say, Marion is our new Virtual Assistant and we would totally recommend her services.
Thanks for everything, Marion - best Virtual Assistant ever!

Easy to work with and great ideas

When I engaged My Virtual Assistant for the company website, I had a good idea of the text I wanted to include and the key headlines, but I had only a limited idea of the look and feel I was aiming for, or how to create a logo that captured the brand.

Marion was able to take my thoughts on the look and feel, and produced a fantastic website that looks professional and enhances the PathLight brand, together with a logo that hits the mark.

She was easy to work with and brought great ideas along.

Jon Kershaw

Easy and efficient process

I discovered My Virtual Assistant through the East Auckland Grapevine on Facebook, where a fellow user was asking for local website designer recommendations and Marion’s name (along with exceptional feedback on her work) came up time and time again.

I am so pleased I took their advice.

Marion has made what was a daunting task for me, an easy and efficient process.

Guiding me clearly and thoughtfully throughout its creation, I now have a website that I am proud to have represent my business, and can’t thank her enough.

I will be in touch with her again by the end of the year as I have another little business that I will be getting off the ground.

Ticked all the boxes

The key to a great website is a clear vision.
To create a website you need a clear vision of what you want the site to achieve.
Then you need someone to put that vision into place.
I found the perfect person to do that:  Marion of My Virtual Assistant.
Due to COVID travel restrictions, I was refocusing my business.  Marion was recommended to me and on making contact I explained to Marion what I wanted to achieve and how I believed I could best achieve that.
She took those ideas and came up with a couple of design ideas.  We selected one, and it soon became apparent that it was not quite right.  So we pondered some more, came up with another concept, and that ticked all the boxes.
One of my requirements was that I wanted to be able to amend the website whenever I wanted.  Marion developed some standards, and instructions, for me to follow.  Now I amend the site and Marion’s standards ensure uniformity in picture size, font size, and colours.  
Even though my site has only been live for two months, I have already been able to add/change content four times.  That is four times more than I did with my previous 12-year-old site.
Thanks Marion, I am extremely happy with my new logo and my new website.

Prompt and reliable

Hi Marion

I hope you are doing well in the countdown towards Christmas.  I am ready for a nice long break!
I have attached the final newsletter for my client. It has been great working with you on these over the last two years.

I will get back to doing my own quarterly newsletters next year so I am sure we will still work together from time to time. 

I really appreciate how prompt and reliable you are.

Hope you have a wonderful summer break and all the best for 2022.

Marion is a great asset to our fledgling business

Starting a new business is daunting, and in the middle of a lockdown makes it even more ‘interesting’…
I heard some great things about Marion, but never met face to face (and still haven’t), and I was apprehensive of this ‘virtual’ help.
From the first chat over the phone, Marion set my mind at ease and provided a clear road map on how the website would be set up, on time and on budget!
She is a great asset to our fledgling business and I'm so immensely grateful for her help.
Marion, everything looks sensational!  You should be very proud of what you’ve created.  Thank you.

Quick to respond and made the whole process stress-free

When we took over Grasslands Howick, the business came with a website that was very dated and difficult to update.
After mentioning this to our accountant, Helen Carbery from Carbery Chartered Accountants, she recommended we get in touch with Marion from My Virtual Assistant.
I met with Marion at her home office and found her very easy to talk to.  Straight away she seemed to understand exactly what kind of help I needed and made me feel like I could put my trust in her.
We discussed everything from website content and product photos, right through to how to make the website go ‘live’.
Marion took care of writing and editing some of the website content to make it connect more with our readers.  She resized and cropped photos as necessary, and when it came time to make the site go ‘live’, she handled all of the technical stuff.
We were so impressed with the first draft of the new site and only needed to make a few tweaks here and there before giving Marion the thumbs up to go ‘live’.
Marion was quick to respond to our questions and requests and made the whole process stress-free.

We are thrilled with the way our website has turned out and have received great feedback from our customers.

You made my life easier

A big shout out to Marion Jackson for creating another awesome website for me.

Marion has the perfect blend of creativity and order to make sense of things and is a problem-solver you can rely on.

Highly recommended!

Impressed is an understatement

Marion created a website for my hair salon back in 2014.  This website served its purpose well but the time had come for a revamp.

I couldn't be happier with the website's new look.

Once again Marion came up with amazing results and she executed imagery and text beautifully.

From start to finish, nothing was too difficult for Marion to tackle, and she completed the site in a very efficient manner.

The revamped site has clients talking already!

I would highly recommend working with My Virtual Assistant – Marion will definitely exceed your expectations.

Thanks Marion, I am so happy with the results, the site looks stunning!

Our website is inviting, easy to navigate, fresh and new

We contacted Marion shortly after launching our business as we needed our current website updated and revamped.

Marion was so easy to deal with (and all by email!)  Nothing was too much trouble and the end result is a website that is inviting, easy to navigate, fresh, and new.

Thanks again, Marion, we are very happy with the Barkers Plumbing website and thoroughly recommend you to others.

Twelve websites and the results are fabulous

The eight websites we inherited were a bit dismal and the thought of the work required to revamp them was quite daunting.

But the journey was so much easier with your help and the results are fabulous.

We also needed another three new websites to be built from scratch, plus one more for our head office, so that's 12 new websites all up!

All of our websites are bright and inviting, with a warmth and friendliness that reflects our business goals so well.

We will definitely use your services again and will happily recommend you to others.

A job well done!  Thank you so much, Marion.

Marion provided the structure, speed, and support that made the process of creating my website easy.

Fast responses and took all the 'scary stuff' away

I'm absolutely thrilled with my fabulous new website that Marion has created for me!

She designed the whole thing! Re-worded the text, displayed my artwork beautifully, made suggestions, and set up the eCommerce side. 

My new website is an artwork in itself!

Marion was extremely fast in her responses when I had any questions and she took all the 'scary stuff' out of creating my website, as well as dealing directly with the domain name people and the hosting company.

She even gave my logo a much-needed revamp, and set up Mailchimp for me so that I can now grow a database of customers!

She was so professional and I can't recommend her highly enough for doing a fabulous job and taking the worry out of my hands!

Thank you, Marion!

You made my life easier

We are over the moon

We have always wanted to get a website up and running, but we did not know where to start or who to go to. Then a friend got us in contact with Marion.
Working with Marion was very easy and as we are so busy with everything, we gave her very little help. She worked in with us and was very patient.

As for the website, she sourced great images for us and the 'car-themed' copy she wrote is fantastic!

We couldn't have asked for more - we are over the moon with it!
The feedback from family and friends has been amazing – “so professional”.
We absolutely love our new website and it backs up the level of workmanship that we strive for. 

We are also going to work with Marion, not just for our website, but also for advertising media, as well as our new e-commerce shop.

Thank you so much.

Much easier than I expected

Before getting my website built I spent almost a year trying to figure out what I wanted to advertise and what I wanted to say to make my customers understand we could help with anything they needed.

Once My Virtual Assistant got involved the process was much easier than I expected.

My website was built quickly and changes were easy to make, if needed.

Very pleased with the end result.

You were instrumental in getting us off the ground

Marion, thank you so much, The Lounge wouldn't be what it is today, without you.

Marion seemed to know what I wanted before I knew what I wanted and created a fresh look to my site and nothing was too much trouble for her to do.

Thank you, Marion.

I love my website and so do my clients

Dear Marion
I wanted to have an online presence for my business and was very confused as to where to start.

After having my initial meeting with you I felt the weight off my shoulders as you answered all of my questions. We discussed colour schemes, branding, and picture choices which I left up to you.

I wanted a professional website that reflected my services. I could not be happier with the result. You delivered exactly what you promised, I would not change anything. I love my website and so do my clients.

Thank you once again, I will be passing your details to others in my network.

Our website was re-created at a cost that was incredibly reasonable

In early 2019 we approached Marion Jackson from My Virtual Assistant with the view to upgrading our website and rebuilding it on a more user-friendly platform.

We had looked through websites that Marion has created for similar type of organisations, and were impressed with the design and functionality of the sites we viewed.

After contacting Marion, we met in person to discuss our needs and whether Marion could deliver our upgrade at a reasonable cost.  Consequently, we commissioned My Virtual Assistant to proceed.

Our website was re-created within a very short period; onto a platform that is easy to edit, and at a cost that was incredibly reasonable. 

We also contact Marion if we need to solve any issues with posting or editing the website.

I am very pleased to be able to highly recommend both Marion Jackson and My Virtual Assistant to anyone wishing to create or upgrade their website.  Our experience has been entirely positive.

Best regards,

Modern and fresh, with moving parts!

Marion has done a fabulous job of completely redesigning and modernising my tired boring old website.

It looks great - modern and fresh, with moving parts!  I am so pleased with it.

She did everything - making the site, setting it up with the website people, the analytics - all I had to do was provide the text and the photos.  And bonus - all done by email.

Thank you!

You have saved me so much time

Hi Marion
Wonderful - this is perfect! You have saved me so much time on this task which I wasn't looking forward to sorting out.

It is wonderful to be able to call on your services when I need assistance with various administration tasks so I can carry on running my business knowing that you will do a great job.

It's great to have this service for businesses like mine which cannot justify a full-time assistant but is available when I need help from time to time.

Thanks again for your hard work.

Fresh ideas and professionalism

Marion was very approachable and accommodated my wish list for a website very well.

I wanted a modern, easy-on-the-eye, user-friendly website. Marion's fresh ideas and professionalism gave me full confidence that she would get the job done without issues.

The result was a vast improvement from my previously outdated website, and after the website went 'live', I was impressed with how easy changes could be made on my end.

Our logo also needed an update, and Marion designed a fresh, new logo, which works perfectly.

Thanks, Marion for a job well done.

After months of dealing with another company, we had been left feeling very frustrated and felt we would have been better off doing it ourselves.

We have had great feedback from our clients who have found the site easy to navigate and informative.
Once again thank you so much for making this so stress-free for us, we will definitely be recommending you to others in the future.

Marion was on my wavelength

My existing website really wasn't cutting the mustard, and I needed a site that showcased who I am and what I do.
After talking to a few website designers, I came back to Marion at My Virtual Assistant because I liked the look of a lot of the websites she had already created, and after discussing ideas with her, I felt she was on my wavelength.
When Marion sent through the initial draft of my website, I was very happy with it.  There was nothing about it that I wanted to change.  
I am more than happy to personally recommend My Virtual Assistant to anyone thinking about getting a new website for their business.

The project was completed with ease

Our team had researched a number of vendors and we were so pleased we engaged your services.
From our first meeting to twigging the final detail, the experience was a good one and the processes you have in place ensured the project was completed with ease.
The goal was to provide our clients with a simple introduction to NZPGS, our products, services, and people; this was achieved.
Having completed the site in a timely manner ensured we were prepared to enter the market seamlessly and cost-effectively.
I will be passing on your details to others in my network looking for a website solution.

A huge weight off my shoulders

Marion did an AMAZING job on my website!

I started up my business last year in June 2015 and had no idea what to do about setting up a website. I was referred to Marion by a friend, and also the East Auckland Grapevine page on Facebook.

Once I had my first meeting with Marion it was a huge weight off my shoulders; she was professional, friendly, and fun to deal with.  She put me at ease and went about 'getting it done'.

I am so pleased with the end result and it has been just super-easy for me.

If you or anyone you know needs a website set up don’t think twice, just leave it in Marion from My Virtual Assistant's capable hands and relax as all will be done, and to a very high standard.

Professionalism, excellent communication, and high quality end product

After many years of working with a web designer who never replied to our messages or actioned our requests adequately, we were thrilled to have found and worked with Marion from My Virtual Assistant.
From the moment I first messaged Marion she immediately replied, letting me know when we could talk and schedule in time to develop our new website.

Her communication has been exemplary throughout the process.  Her after-service follow-up is fast, and any small website amendments we request are updated very promptly.
Marion has ensured the back end of our website is all correctly linked which has significantly increased our web visitor rate and level of enquiry.
I recommend her to any organisation that is looking for professionalism, excellent communication, and delivery of a high-quality end product, and welcome you to contact me should you wish to ask any questions about the level of service she provides.

A real human being who cares about her work and her clients

Kia ora Koutou!  Karen Jones here!

I have had two websites made by Marion and am on the cusp of a third.

She is also a good listener and tries hard to think like my clients.

I like the personal approach Marion has. Nothing ever seems to be a problem and she is so patient.  I love the styles of her websites.

Marion is a real human being who cares about her work and her clients.

A breath of fresh air!

Keep up the great work Marion!

Highest possible standard

Marion has been a pleasure to work with.  I found Marion by asking for recommendations on the East Auckland Grapevine (on Facebook), and everyone who answered recommended her.

We had an old website that needed upgrading and she has certainly given it a new lease of life.  We are delighted with it.

She came up with some great ideas and was able to turn our old website into something that looks amazing and is easy to get around.

She also designed our new logo!

Marion is very easy to work with, punctual with replies and answers to questions, and does everything to the highest possible standard.

I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Takes such great pride in her work, as if it was her own website

I have toiled away with my websites for years and as a boat designer and builder, I wanted to be able to make updates with regular news and advances.

The hope was that if it was easy enough, I could do it myself to get the information I wanted across. What I found was that it was so cumbersome to make changes that I ended up shying away from doing it all. You almost needed a tech degree to sort it out!

I met with Marion and discussed my website, and agreed she would take control of it.

The results have been outstanding. Firstly she provided a platform that is very simple and user-friendly, so I can make changes if I wish. But throughout the process, Marion takes such great pride in her work, as if it was her own website, and presents the information in a very professional and clear way, that I have now just left it to her. Her experience and ability to write in a clear and context-sensitive way has enhanced my website hugely and is a very big improvement on what I had.

She is very easy to work with and speaks in language you can understand, so it gives you the ability to stay connected and be part of the process as the site is being developed. You are able to understand and follow her through the process, which allows you to be involved as much or as little as you like.

I highly recommend My Virtual Assistant to anyone thinking of setting up a website. No matter how big your company is, Marion will develop you a professional easy-to-use website, tailored to your business, that you can be proud of and will enhance your business.

Ties in perfectly with my existing brand

I am so happy with the work that Marion Jackson has done for me.  She is super organised and so easy to deal with.

She took on the design of my website quietly and diligently with almost no direction whatsoever and came up with something I truly love.

It is logical, clear, easy to navigate, and ties in perfectly with my existing brand.

Marion also takes care of my social media pages for The Cath Vincent Show and quickly increased my followers in a short space of time.

I can highly recommend her for a fuss-free service.

You're a marvel

Thanks, Marion, you're a marvel - I can't get over how quickly you do my newsletter each month.

Have a super day!

So much fun to work with

My business involves women in their mature years, so a complicated website is out of the question and it must be user-friendly, which is why I have chosen Marion to design my website.

If you're looking to set up a website, Marion is amazing!  She currently has my website under construction and she is coming up with some fantastic and very creative ideas, plus she is so much fun to work with.

I thoroughly recommend her service and it is money well spent to get a professional who knows her stuff and puts the right ingredients into your website so it works for you.

I often struggle trying to navigate around websites so a lot of people miss out on my business because I just give up!

Marion takes all the stress and pressure off me so I can get on with the things I am good at... thank you, Marion!

Marion, my words are from the heart... and well deserved.  I don't comment where it's not appropriate... but you ARE the best!

Expertise and valuable guidance

For 15 years I have not had to rely on advertising my dressmaking business because recommendations from a number of my clients have helped build up my business.

So when we decided to move from the South East to the North East of the UK I had to think about advertising and decided to have a website built.

I had no idea where to start, but there was no need to panic because I got in touch with Marion.

Her expertise, valuable guidance, and advice made things easy for me, and she has built and launched an amazing website for my business.  I am absolutely thrilled and delighted with the result.

Marion is so professional and replied to all of my queries promptly.  At this stage, my website has only been up and running for two weeks and it has already started to generate clients.

I am so pleased with the website!  I check the Stats every day and did not think I would - it is so exciting to see how many people have looked at it and I have acquired two new clients just this week!

Thank you, Marion, you are amazing!  

From your very chuffed client!

Exactly the kind of high-level support I am used to

LinkedIn message:  Claire Mahon, Director and Chief Executive Officer, Geneva, Switzerland, has recommended your work as Director at My Virtual Assistant. (May 2013)

Dear Marion,

I've written the following recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

"Marion is super responsive, very friendly, highly professional, and is one of those people who has clearly worked in high-level administrative roles for a long time and has a great sense as to what is needed and expected in this kind of support.

She delivers a high-quality product, on time, in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective.

She asks all the right clarifying questions along the way, without being too "needy".

Marion provides exactly the kind of high-level support that I am used to dealing with in very well-resourced organisations, but which I don't always get the pleasure of working with, and certainly can't always find (or afford) to hire when I'm working on my own. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

I think that having a VA is a really important step for a business operator, having the right person at hand to help you - someone who is also business savvy and knows what both running a business and doing the substance of their role as a VA is about - is vital to help you perform at your best. I found Marion to really understand this well."

Great eye for detail

Reliable and proactive

Marion has provided admin and marketing support to me since November 2011 and I find her to be incredibly reliable, proactive, and great at communicating with me.

She demonstrates great initiative - I know I can send her something with minimal info and she'll take it and sort it. It's great to have this kind of support in my business!

Thanks, Marion - I really appreciate your thorough communication, prompt responses, and efficiency.

Marion gets it done without fluster and with a smile

Marion is one of the most adaptable, can-do-it people I’ve met.

She is the type of person you want around you in a fast-growing environment, where all you know, is there will be a constant of change.

This demands having access to the kind of resource that is flexible, self-starting, and can adapt to any request.

Marion is an incredibly adaptable person - she is able to turn her hand to anything and is amazingly flexible about dealing with the time pressures in business.

Marion gets it done without fluster and with a smile.  She is a joy to have around.

Knowledgeable, trusted and reliable

Marion is the first person I think of when I need help!  Thank goodness a friend gave me Marion's name and number.

I am a busy Mum looking after my business, consulting from my home office.  I was able to keep on top of my client's business needs, but my own needs were always being put at the bottom of the to-do list!

I needed a website, marketing materials and to start using some social media.  Marion was fantastic in helping me create all of these.

I have since used Marion's services on a regular basis for any changes I need to make to marketing and admin-type tasks that I just can't get to myself.

I have found that having fantastic help on hand from Marion means my time is better spent looking after my clients, while she looks after me!

Marion completes all my requests in a very timely manner and to the highest standard.  She is also very proactive in keeping in touch and offering suggestions for improvements.

I thoroughly recommend Marion as a knowledgeable, trusted, and reliable assistant for your business needs.

Everything is done to a high standard

Marion has been amazing to work with.  She is extremely knowledgeable and goes out of her way to ensure everything is done to a high standard.

I have had so much positive feedback from the wonderful website Marion has created for my business, that it is overwhelming. 

Nothing is stressful when dealing with Marion.  She empowers your vision and works fast and efficiently in creating it.

I highly recommend her and will certainly be using her services again.

Marion ticks all the boxes

There are a few times in one's working life when one comes across someone who ticks all the boxes and then some.

Marion is one of these people.

Marion makes the business of doing business much easier and delivers over and above one's expectations.

When I was late getting material to her for my website she explained that she couldn't get to it until after Christmas, but then promptly proceeded to complete the whole thing well before Christmas much to my absolute delight.

Not only that but she was even happy to make minor adjustments right up to her last day of work before the Christmas break.

Nothing is too much trouble for Marion, she is always cheerful, is readily able to tune into a client's needs, and comes up with some excellent ideas.  I look forward to a continued working relationship with Marion.

Incidentally - I keep getting terrific feedback about my website - people really like it and the messages that it conveys. So, well done you! You got my website just soooo RIGHT!

Updating our seven websites for over 11 years

Marion Jackson has been updating our websites since 2009 - that's 11 years and counting! - and always does a fabulous job.

The Mountfort Estate Agents - Ray White Eastern group comprises seven offices, with individual websites for each office.  Any changes to one site must be duplicated across the other six.

Marion always responds promptly to my requests and makes the necessary changes quickly, easily, and accurately.

Recently our websites changed platforms, which required a complete rebuild within the Ray White template.  Marion took on the task with her customary efficiency and quickly learned the necessary programming changes.  She made a complicated process look easy.

I would happily recommend Marion to anyone who requires secretarial or website assistance – she will make your working life much easier!

Fast and accurate

Running a local rental property company means constantly keeping our website updated with the latest available properties, allowing prospective tenants to see what's currently available for rent.

Before I found Marion, I struggled to find the time to regularly maintain our website and sometimes had disappointed clients on the other end of the phone when they discovered a property they had seen on our website had already been rented out.

Marion quickly learned the process of adding and removing property information and photographs onto our website, which she uploads as needed and this can be several times a week.

She has been working with me for a full year now and her response to our requests is always fast and accurate, and as a result, our website is always current.

I'm very happy with the service I receive and recommend Marion to anyone wanting to keep their website up-to-date.

Your generosity had a big impact on our end result

Dear Marion

A Summer Wrap @ Valley de Sol, on Saturday 19 March 2011, was an enormous success.

We are delighted to let you know that we raised $22,000, which will be split evenly between Hospice South Auckland and the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.

We had a truly enjoyable day.  The atmosphere was positively buzzing and it was fabulous to see so many people having a good time.  Valley de Sol was bursting with positive energy, enthusiasm, and overwhelming support for our two charities.

We sincerely thank you for all the work you did setting up the concert website and managing it.  You did a fabulous job and it was very reassuring knowing that the sponsor's names appeared as soon as they had contributed.

Your generosity to A Summer Wrap @ Valley de Sol had a big impact on our end result and we are extremely grateful for the professionalism you brought to the concert.

A special thank you for sharing the afternoon with us.

Kindest regards,

Chris Bull and all the Howick BNI Business Brunch Members

My Virtual Assistant strongly believes in giving back to the community and enjoyed working 'for love', proudly providing sponsorship and support, by building the website for 'A Summer Wrap @ Valley de Sol'.

Exactly what I had in mind

Wow, that was quick!

When you said you'd start work on the Geneva Guide this week I certainly hadn't expected to receive it already on Monday!

What a great job!  This is really excellent, thanks so much.  This is exactly what I had in mind, as it makes the Guide much more readable.

The pictures look fabulous and made me smile - you definitely found great ones to reflect the issues discussed in the Guide, and good shots of the accommodation, which will make it more 'real' for the students.

Thanks Marion, this is looking really good!

Don't know how I've ever managed without Marion

I didn't even know what a Virtual Assistant was until a few weeks ago, and now I don't know how I've ever managed without one!  Or more specifically, without Marion.

In mere moments and with minimal and scattered instruction, she's streamlined my process and paperwork, set up wonderful communications including newsletters, created YouTube videos and book trailers, and even designed and put together a whole new website for me.

This is all for a fraction of the money that I've shelled out to other folks who didn't really finish the job, or that I wasted trying to sort it all out for myself.

Marion is a treasure, an absolute find, and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Get the job done right, first time

Marion was my Executive Assistant for four years in the ‘real’ world and she's a fantastic assistant.  

Marion’s got a real passion for what she does and pays close attention to getting the job done right, first time.

She’s saved me a lot of time, is reliable and very efficient.

Now that Marion’s set up her own business, I love the fact that I can call on her whenever I need her, and I know she’ll always do a fantastic job.

Excellent interpersonal skills, dedication, commitment and a high level of professional delivery

The following is an extract from a reference written by a former employer and refers to my role as Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer:  

During the time she worked for me at Excell Corporation, I found Marion to be an extremely competent person who quickly and easily understood both my requirements and the fuller requirements of the role, and undertook them brilliantly. 

In every aspect of her duties, Marion’s performance met and exceeded my expectations.

Marion is an intelligent and intuitive individual who displays excellent motivation and innovation.  These skill sets were well used in her wider role with particular emphasis on her duties, assisting me in developing a much stronger brand image for the company.

Marion also took the lead in Communications and Media Relations and I feel strongly that our public profile was never better than during her time in that position.

As a result of the above, I have no hesitation in fully endorsing Marion, as I know from direct experience she will bring excellent interpersonal skills, dedication and commitment, as well as a high level of professional delivery.
