Do you enjoy working as a virtual assistant? Are you tired of marketing for private clients? Would you like a company that would just find you the clients? Then WorldWide101 might be the right work-at-home (WAH) job for you.
What Exactly is WorldWide101?
WorldWide101 is a work-at-home company that offers multi-lingual support from virtual assistants who are carefully matched to their clients based on skills and personality. This is opposed to the virtual assistant finding her own clients. You may work part-time or full-time in the comfort of your home.
WorldWide101 is similar to eaHelp, Time Etc., and many other virtual assistant companies which have already been reviewed on this blog or elsewhere. I would not compare WorldWide101 to a company like Fancy Hands, because while it offers virtual assisting, the pay at Fancy Hands is allocated by completing short tasks for the indicated amount as opposed to an hourly or project wage.
Virtual assistants who don’t have a lot of money or time for marketing tend to enjoy working at WorldWide101. The clients are basically found for them as opposed to having to spend large segments of time or money to market for them. Also, when a client leaves, there is no scrambling to find a replacement client. WorldWide101 will do it for you. Anyone who has ever done virtual assistance knows that this is a constant challenge, especially since some clients can also be temporary or short-term.
