Virtual Assistant High Wycombe & Aylesbury
I am Philippa Hatch and I run Pink Spaghetti High Wycombe and Aylesbury, but I also cover Beaconsfield, Amersham, Chesham, Great Missenden and Wendover. I am a virtual assistant supporting small businesses with a huge range of tasks, allowing you as a business owner to do what you do best.
I live in Penn near High Wycombe and I am passionate about supporting small businesses in the local area. I set up my business because I LOVE doing the background work everyone needs for their business. I pride myself on being approachable and listening to my customers, whilst being honest and pro-active along the way.
I spent 12 years in sales support, project admin, marketing, and communications roles both in the UK and Australia before retraining as a nutritionist. I had my own nutrition consultancy for 4 years, writing a healthy eating blog and other nutrition content then started a business making healthy snacks for kids. This breadth of experience means I have a unique understanding and empathy for small business owners.
I am highly organised and love working with clients to make their businesses run smoothly. I love a challenge and thrive on helping my customers to find creative solutions to problems. I am a born organiser and planner with a keen eye for detail.
My team really adds to my expertise. We are always happy to have a no obligation chat, to see if we are the right fit for your business. We are passionate believers in small businesses, and are very happy working with people from around Lymm and Altrincham and the surrounding areas.
Ishbel is our Marketing Assistant. She has a background in marketing and sales having worked for a large healthcare company for many years. Ishbel has experience in brand marketing, content development, event management and project management. She loves to be organised, has a great attention to detail and is excited to help support our Pink Spaghetti clients.
Why a virtual assistant?
A virtual assistant can help a business owner with all the tasks they may not have the time, the skills or inclination to do themselves. Think of us as a virtual personal assistant, rather than the traditional secretarial role. We are used to working with people who have fantastic ideas or are incredibly talented, but few people can do all the tasks associated with running a growing, successful business. Outsourcing some of these tasks makes good business sense.
Using a virtual assistant is a low cost, flexible way of adding resource into your business. You don’t need to provide holiday or sick pay, National Insurance or pension contributions. We offer a flexible hourly rate, which can be a fantastic way to start working together or for one-off projects or when you don’t really know how many hours you might need. Retainer agreements from a minimum of 4 hours per month work well for ongoing monthly support. We pride ourselves in open and honest pricing, so you will never get a surprise bill and we can work to your budget.
Why Pink Spaghetti?
Pink Spaghetti is a franchise and this means I get training on all the latest systems and platforms, so my skills are always up to date. I also have access to a nationwide network of virtual assistants and all their expertise. They are a hugely experienced group of people who can help with large projects or cover during holidays and sickness so there are never gaps.
At Pink Spaghetti we appreciate how much there is to do to run a business as we are small business owners too. We are a friendly, approachable and professional bunch that love getting to know your business and using our skills and knowledge to help you thrive.
A range of Virtual PA Services
We carry out a huge variety of tasks for all sorts of businesses. They are typically jobs associated with a personal assistant, such as administration and organisation, but we also offer marketing support, social media, branding and copywriting, as well as project administration and customer management tasks, such as setting up a CRM system or newsletter. We get involved when a business owner realises they are not able to do everything themselves or wants to grow the business but doesn’t have the time to do it!
Case Studies Here is how some of our customers use us.
Digital Marketing Consultancy, High Wycombe
This is my biggest client, who I support with general admin and organisation. To date, I have helped with tasks like file organisation, writing proposals and creating proposal and project requirements templates and I set up a new CRM database for use across two businesses. I have also taken on the role of project administrator for a large international website development project, which will be ongoing for several months.
Social Media Marketing Consultancy, Aylesbury
For this client, I do marketing and administration tasks, such as writing email newsletters and setting up email automations, so her clients receive regular communications. I put together a weekly webinar presentation and have done various research projects, finding PR contacts and relevant Facebook groups.
Telemarketing Agency, Aylesbury
I write regular blog articles and social media posts for this client, mostly using LinkedIn and Facebook, suggesting potential new topics and editing previously written content. I update the website with news articles, images and customer testimonials and have helped with ad-hoc marketing projects, such as the design of new marketing materials and a new website.
Peer to Peer Advisory Board, Marlow
I assist this client in finding new members to join their monthly boards for business owners. This involves lead generation using LinkedIn and various other sources for research, using a defined list of criteria to search against. I also assist with marketing communications to potential clients and ensure the customer database is always updated.
What our Customers Say
"As a mum running two businesses during a pandemic, I realised that I needed to bring some support and help into my business if I was going to not only be able to scale it but do so without dropping any balls, especially at home. I initially wanted Philippa to look after some diary organisation to help me stay on top of a busy schedule but she has become an absolutely key person in helping me keeping the businesses ticking along without burn out and has taken on all manner of tasks from email marketing to social media posts through to spreadsheets and other administrative tasks. She has been a godsend and I look forward to working with her more"
