"Michelle is an extremely capable and versatile professional who is able to turn her hand (and her virtual assistant organisation) to anything I need whenever I need it. From online business consulting down to the most trivial administrative tasks you always know she is "happy to help" and through her business, Virtual Miss Friday (VMF), I have commissioned a full range of projects from the simple to the technically challenging. Michelle even helps me with fast-turnaround client projects herself and, crucially, everything her organisation takes on is completed with effortless ease and at a fraction of the cost of using agencies. I'm delighted to have discovered Michelle and VMF and, I recommend her service to anyone who is busy who wishes they could invent a way to upgrade their productivity. You've just found it. So far, I've yet to discover anything she can't do."
The de-Brand Partnership
"I first contacted Virtual Miss Friday for some support with article rewriting early in June 2012. I had decided to rebrand my business and had already made arrangements for creating the new website and in my mind there was just a small “box” that I could fit them in. Little did I realise ... once I saw the quality of the work that Dale (Content and SEO Manager) and his team produced for me, I asked if they could offer more general support for growing my new online business. Dale said that Michelle could advise on social media generally, and so I spoke to her ... and now they have completely recast my website, set me up on Twitter and Facebook, transformed the way I use LinkedIn and generally become a completely indispensable part of my business development strategy.
I’m one of those people who’s always been a bit worried about becoming over-dependent on anyone. But in the case of VMF I’m now – less than four months later – well beyond that stage. I know I need them and don’t mind saying that, because I just trust them completely. Their standard-setting, their engagement, their encouragement, their all round commitment to helping me believe that my business can achieve what I want from it just couldn’t be better. They never cut any corners and never display irritation (at least not to me!) with the fact that lots of my questions about social media are driven by the fact that I’m a novice trying to learn quickly. And their fees are very reasonable too.
So I’m quite happy to put my hand up and say I’m a self-confessed VMF junkie. What helps me sleep at night is that because Michelle, Dale, Marianne and the team are all virtual, I don’t have to worry about what I’d do if they left the country. Some of them already have! And even though Dale and Michelle are now based in Crete, they’re closer than ever."
"As a blogger, I realize the importance of making a first impression. When you work online, it is even more important, especially since many of my clients may never meet me in person. When I decided to rebrand, I contacted Michelle and her team at Virtual Miss Friday. I was absolutely blown away by the level of professionalism, attention to detail, and communication throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend working with Michelle and her team if you are wanting to improve your image and have a new look that everyone will remember!"
"We have been working with VMF for several years and specifically with article writing and publishing. They have done a tremendous job understanding our business, creating content that is helpful and relevant and most importantly, getting keyword rich content distributed throughout the Internet. The result has been improved organic rankings and raising our company’s profile within our sector. Hiring VMF has proven to be one of the best marketing decisions we have made in the twenty plus years we have been in business. Their attention to detail and sense of urgency is excellent. Projects are always completed on time, and the return we have received far outweighs their reasonable monthly fees. We highly recommend their services and we look forward to working with them for many years."
"Michelle is a joy to work with, punctual, professional, creative and an excellent communicator. The work produced to date has hit exactly the right spot. We enjoyed working with her on everything that we did together
It's obvious that she has a lot of experience and has a really good understanding of online business and different marketing channels. Michelle is amazing.
She is one of a kind and we knew it right away! This will be a long term relationship with Michelle. Finding reliable, super qualified and passionate people these days can be challenging!"
"Michelle and her team have helped us over the last 18 months with social media integration as well as bespoke content creation. They have provided us with an excellent service in all areas and would highly recommend them."
"I’m delighted with the service I’ve received from Virtual Miss Friday in the design and build of World Logic Ltd’s website. Having taken my website brief, Michelle and her knowledgeable team demonstrated excellent creativity in its initial build, listened and reacted instantly to my feedback and provided an excellent result.
Their customer service is first rate and I would have no qualms in recommending VMF for this work."
World Logic Ltd
"I have confidently tasked VMF with the writing and rewriting of dozens of articles over several years. This centralised service consistently delivers, has exceptional project QA and has suggested practical improvements to my own projects. Communication is important to my business, and their support is prompt, professional, honest and constructive. Their tight working relationship with SubmitYourArticle is just a bonus. Zero hesitation in recommending their service."
"I can tell you've done your research. I'm impressed. I've been through dozens of writers and have never seen this kind of due diligence. It shows. You are my new content guys."
Andrew J. Cass
I came to Virtual Miss Friday in a state of utter frustration with where I was in my business. I was disorganized, I had multiple unfinished projects, and I was struggling to find a team who could help me manage myself and my business. One day I was searching the Internet for Online Business Managers and up popped Virtual Miss Friday on page 1 of Google. I started perusing the website and was immediately impressed with the variety of services she offers so I contacted Michelle to schedule an appointment.
I knew as soon as we spoke that I wanted to work with her and her team of professionals. I needed someone I could trust to help me remember things, who I knew I wouldn't have to go behind and make sure tasks and projects got done. I sensed that Michelle was this person and I have not been disappointed. Her dedicated team of professionals have helped get me organized (not a small feat!) and what's more, they are extremely patient with solopreneurs such as myself who seem to have a bit of "adhd" when it comes to projects. Specifically, Michelle has:
* Streamlined my business so that I have great systems in place using her iCapitalise System.
* Saved me money by making suggestions that would use less resources and time, even though that meant less money for her, a sure sign of integrity in my book.
* Created beautiful graphics for my information products, my blog, and my soon to be released brand new website.
* Been very responsive when I had questions, meeting her commitment of a 24 to 48 hour turn around time.
I would recommend Michelle without hesitation to anyone who is looking for an online business manager or a top-quality VA for a specific project. As for myself, I'm looking forward to a long-term business relationship with Virtual Miss Friday. I know that as my business grows and develops over the next few years, Michelle and her team will be more than able to handle the growth and that confidence means the world to me.

"I found it very difficult initially to find a VA that would meet all my needs at a fair price, then I found Michelle and VMF. I was, and continue to be delighted at the quality, professionalism and levels of service that Michelle offers. I have had a number of difficult and I am sure at times frustrating requests which Michelle has sorted effectively and efficiently in record time. I am now at a stage where I cannot imagine running my business without her help. I cannot recommend her and her team highly enough."
"Retaining the services of Virtual Miss Friday has, without doubt, been the best business decision I have made in 2009. I look forward to continued business growth in 2010, and this will be due in no small part to the strategy that VMF has devised and implemented for my websites and online marketing activities. I don't wince when I receive my monthly invoice - I pay VMF gladly each month as I believe that I am getting the most professional, most effective and best value virtual assistant service there is. As a working mum and professional coach, I highly recommend VMF to any solopreneur who is serious about both the success of their business and their work life balance."

"My business was growing and getting increasingly dis-organised. I was struggling to control my admin and losing clients in the process. Michelle literally saved the day. She created a back office for my admin. Complete with an area for my freelance team to register the hours they'd worked. All my contracts and invoices go through Michelle and they look so much more professional. Most initial email enquiries go through Virtual Miss Friday and they get logged in a back office area with details of the status (awaiting call/ follow up/ not interested) I can then amend the status, as required. It means that clients don't drop off the radar and at the very least, they join my marketing database.
Michelle also creates flash looking marketing emails and even creates PayPal buttons for the emails. She also sends out reminders to my freelance team and follows up on invoices to clients when they haven't been paid. All in all, she ensures that things continue to run smoothly. My business image is so much more professional since I joined forces with Virtual Miss Friday and I have more time to do the things which I'm good at!"
"Michelle: I am so blessed to have you working with me on my business..... Your service over the last 6 months has been fantastic, and the projects/presentations that we are turning out at the moment are admired by all that receive them. I said I wanted to set the bar high when I entered the market..... we are definitely doing that with your assistance..... Thank you"
"Michelle works with speed, efficiency and professionalism, and has added value to my business not just through the work I have asked her to help with, but by also proactively suggesting ways in which her work could be of even greater value, thus putting the interests of my business at the centre of what she does. This type of working relationship would be of immense value to any business, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Virtual Miss Friday."
