The Association of Virtual Assistants was not just founded for virtual assistants. It was founded to support you, the client, as well. When conducting research on what clients are looking for when hiring a VA we listened and acted on the most common concerns and boundaries. 

The AVA is bringing you just what you asked for!


A trusted and transparent resource to find quality virtual assistants.

The AVA understands you would never hire a stranger off the street to work in your company and the same applies when hiring a VA. Your process in hiring the right virtual assistant will be completely transparent and you’ll have the guided expertise of our Founder & CEO, Melissa Smith, who is the leading Premier VA Matchmaker in the industry. Our virtual assistants are not hidden behind an internet wall. This is a process you can trust.

A place that listed the market value of a VA so you, the client, can make the most informed decision.
We listened and heard you loud and clear. You know you need to hire a VA, but you like to do your homework before you make decisions. The industry standard pricing guide, complete with descriptions, puts you in the driver’s seat and provides you the information you’re looking for to make an important hiring decision.


More information on how to use a VA and what services could be provided.
The AVA believes every client is unique and your business needs deserve to be personally addressed. Whether in our private Slack community or via email our Executive Team is on hand to make sure you have a place to get your questions answered.


Examples and resources of the virtual assistant’s work. 
As a savvy business owner of course you want to see past work or understand the thought process of the VA you want to work with. Ask freely and know who is responding.


A faster hiring process. 
It’s not that you don’t know you need a VA. It’s that because you need a VA you lack time. We get it! In your private Slack community you’ll be able to speed up the hiring process by having VAs in one location answer your questions. No back and forth emails.

Additionally, future clients say they are not yet in a place financially to hire a VA. Or they need a VA for just a short period of time. Or it would be nice just to have a VA to discuss what platforms would best fit their needs. The AVA not only understands but has created a solution to support and assist you whatever stage of business you’re in!

When you join the AVA as a client you will receive complimentary consultation support in a the private Slack community. Have a question about the software program that isn't working right? Want to get real user feedback before you decide on your next platform? Are you struggling to develop a system or process to streamline or automate your workflow? All you have to do is ask and you'll be able to get your questions answered from a variety of skilled virtual assistants in order to make the right decision for you.

VAs will provide written instructions, video tutorials, or links to helpful articles without soliciting their services in a private Slack community created just for you. Of course, you can request a proposal if you would like to work with a VA! Additionally, as we work towards certifications our AVA client members will be eligible to have a VA intern!

A comprehensive directory of our all virtual assistants so you can easily connect with the right VA to meet your current and future needs is coming soon!

You can get all this support by being a client member of the AVA! For the support of over 120 VAs representing 12 countries (growing daily!) and numerous areas of expertise the cost is only $79 a year.
