If you’re an entrepreneur, you probably love what you do. That must have been why you started in the first place. But for a business to succeed, the boring paper work, the administrative support and the tax calculations need to be done by someone. Not many businesses can afford full time administrative support, and not every business owner can travel with an assistant. Founder of Prime Virtual Assitant, Mrs. Edoya David-Atiti says an understanding of these circumstances led to the birth of her Start-up in 2016.
David-Atiti created an online platform which gives clients the opportunity to outsource tasks such as proofreading and creating documents, power point presentations, email management, feasibility study reports, internet-based research, on-the-field research, among others.
“I really desired to meet a need whilst doing something I enjoyed,” she told Hi-Tech Start-Ups in a recent interview. “At Prime VA, We do administrative support virtually for Entrepreneurs, Professionals and Small businesses. We offer smart support for admin tasks so that clients can focus on their core revenue generating activities. The beauty of it all is that we can work with you even though we are not physically at your workplace, and you get to pay for services that you really need per time.”
Although her organisation is canvassing uncharted territory in Nigeria’s tech-ecosystem, the founder of Prime VA is already full of success stories. “It was really scary when I first started up,” she said, “but I quickly realised that when your service meets a need, you’ll get patronage. If you’re excellent at what you do, you’d get even more patronage. It’s really fulfilling to see clients genuinely interested in the services we offer. It has been very fulfilling getting positive feedback from our clients. We are reliable and always work with the timeline agreed upon.”
Prime VA also has some packages for individuals and is offering to write a free ‘career cover letter’ for ten lucky winners. “Interested participants can follow and message @primevassistant on instagram, twitter or contact us on our website primevirtualassistant.com. They should also where they came across this information.”
We are currently putting together an attractive package for businesses that decide to go beyond a monthly service package to a quarterly service package with Prime Virtual Assistant. Also, on our website, shop.primevirtualassistant.com, there are currently very attractive discounted prices for clients who place orders there.
The Prime VA boss also offered some advice to other tech-preneurs. “It is important to stay motivated and teachable, because the tech world changes fast and you have to be abreast of the developments to meet the demands of your market.
