When looking for a solution to outsource tasks — to save time and money — you may come across MyTasker. You may be attracted to the idea of offshoring due to the lower costs. However, you need to think about what you’ll actually receive from the service. We’re sure that, when you analyze your options, you’ll see MYVA360 is a much better choice.
If you choose MYVA360, you will also receive a dedicated virtual assistant. Your VA will be in the same time zone as you and available during your business hours. You’ll also have a backup assistant (who will step in if your regular VA is ever unavailable) and you can request a second virtual assistant at no extra charge whenever you have a large amount of work with a tight deadline. Finally, you’ll have access to our extended team for tasks like website development, graphic design, and digital marketing.
Based in India, MyTasker has a team of close to 100 virtual assistants who work in the same building. Depending on your needs, you may receive a dedicated virtual assistant to handle all your projects (along with an account manager to oversee the process) or you may be assigned a team of VAs, such as in the case you require various skills.
At MYVA360, we support all of the above and much more. In particular, we have specialist services for IT companies, real estate agents, nonprofits, and coaches, to name just a few.
MyTasker is aimed at established businesses, entrepreneurs, and busy individuals who lack the time to complete all their personal tasks themselves. The company does not offer any specialist services for particular types of professionals.
In contrast, we have no set list of services at MYVA360 — our virtual assistants can do almost anything it’s possible to do remotely. This includes executive assistance, administration, personal tasks, social media management, ecommerce tasks, sales, virtual receptionist support, and more.
The kinds of tasks you can assign the virtual assistants at MyTasker fall into six categories: administrative assistance, accounting assistance, writing and editing, web design and development, digital marketing, and IT support. MyTasker also offers a service to help you set up your business in India.
We offer similar plans at MYVA360: ours start at 15 hours for $360 a month and go up to 90 hours for $1,440 a month. We also have pay as you go for $28 an hour.
The difference, though, is what you receive with the plans. All our plans allow you to add an extra user and our monthly plans allow you to roll over unused hours. This means if you are less busy than normal one month, you can save up the extra hours for when you have a large amount of work — you always receive the full number of hours you’ve paid for. In addition, you’ll have peace of mind thanks to the 15-day money-back guarantee.
There are five packages available from MyTasker: for 10, 20, 40, 60, and 100 hours. Prices range from $140 a month to $900 a month. There is also the option to receive a full-time virtual assistant for $1,200 a month for five days a week or to pay as you go for $18 an hour.
At MYVA360, we really do offer free trials. We’ll assign you a virtual assistant for a full workday of eight hours and you’ll receive a report detailing what the VA did at the end of the day. Plus, this free trial is completely separate from the consultation to discuss your needs — which, by the way, is also completely free.
MyTasker says that they offer trials — but if you look closely, you’ll see that you won’t actually have the chance to experience what it’s like to work with one of their virtual assistants. Instead, you simply receive a consultation with a Relationship Manager to determine the scope of your project and to gain support choosing a monthly plan. In fact, this is called an exclusive (rather than free) trial because it costs $1.
Unless you’re specifically looking for support setting up and managing a business in India, you’re unlikely to find MyTasker the better option for you. MYVA360 offers a wider array of services and better value for money for a range of professionals.
