Posted on 02. Mar, 2006 by in Services, VirtualConnections Newsletter

Each month in our newsletter, VirtualConnections, we focus on unique ways that THSS can help your business run more smoothly and effectively. The day-to-day operations of a business can sometime prove to be overwhelming for a business owner and available staff. This month we will focus on Research Services:

  • A client is selling business success tools and seminars. The client has a VA research a target industry. Once a list of companies has been prepared, the VA calls to identify the contact individual. The VA prepares and mails introductory material. After a specified time, the VA calls to verify the information has been received and to schedule a sales appointment.
  • The client needs a hotel conference room for a seminar and telephones a VA to do some research. The VA contacts several hotels in the area to determine date availability, room parameters and specifics for the seminar. The VA obtains written quotes from the hotels that are able to accommodate the request. The VA reviews each quote for completeness and reports the findings to the client.
  • A client needs to buy some office equipment and emails a VA with the request. The VA calls several vendors, obtains pricing information, and emails the information back to the client.
  • The client is interested in the competition that exists online. The VA can do a keyword search, list the appropriate websites/findings, and report back to the client.
  • A client needs DVD duplication and emails a VA with an assignment. The VA calls several vendors and obtains written quotes for the project. Upon approval, the VA coordinates sending the master disk to the vendor for duplication.
