Virtual Assistant Newbury
I am Clare Farley, and I run Pink Spaghetti Newbury. As your Virtual Assistant, you can call me your pocket specialist in everything it takes to run a small business, allowing you as a business owner to do what you do best.
I live in Greenham, South of Newbury and I am passionate about supporting small businesses in the local area. I set up my business because it includes everything I LOVE to do that most business owners do not have the time or appetite to do.
I pride myself on being a great organiser, planner, listener and I know you will find me approachable.
Before running my own business, I came from the fast-paced digital publishing world, where I worked on digital content and branding. Working closely with some of the top magazine houses in the world.
My background is over 30 years in the hospitality industry which gave me the drive to help busy people and my proactive working ethos and my can-do manner shows this.
Having worked in some amazing hotels with VIP’s and VVIP’s I pride myself on being professional and approachable. This environment has also trained me to research incredibly well to understand the customer/client’s background.
My specialities are in Social media management, digital marketing, and event planning. But I cover all aspects you would expect from a PA or EA.
Why a virtual assistant?
A virtual assistant does not just cover the traditional diary management and minute taking tasks, we are more of a virtual personal assistant, a clone of you as the business owner, getting through the tasks you don’t want to do, don’t have the time or the inclination to do. We are used to working with people who are amazing entrepreneurs, but by outsourcing and delegating their tasks, the time it frees up allows them to focus on what they are great at.
Using a virtual assistant is a cost-effective way of adding resource into your business. No holiday or sick pay, no tax, NI or pension costs, you don't pay for coffee breaks or office chat, and we are already trained in the things you need done. We offer either a "pick up, put down" hourly rate, or retainer agreements from just 4 hours a month for something more stable - whichever suits your business. 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 have all these great people to call on. So, if I don't know the answer to something, there is always someone to ask to help. They are such a lovely bunch of friendly people and they can help if large projects come in, or cover through holidays and sickness. This means, for you, resource is always there even when I am not.
At Pink Spaghetti we appreciate how much there is to do - we are small business owners too! We are a friendly, approachable and humble bunch and enjoy becoming part of your team for as much or as little time as you need us. Our clients enjoy outsourcing to us without the hassle of employing.
A range of Virtual PA Services
The tasks we carry out are as varied as our customers! They are typically administration, social media, organisation and marketing tasks and we can be seen with a pile of receipts, or setting up a CRM system. We get involved when a business owner has had something on a list for a while but never quite gets around to doing it.
