Virtual Assistant Portsmouth & Isle of Wight
Hi, my name is Tara Stoyles, and I am the proud owner of Pink Spaghetti Portsmouth & Isle of Wight. I have lived in the Fareham area all my life, and my passion is to support local small businesses and individuals with their administrative tasks.
As a virtual assistant I can be flexible and provide support for tailored one-off projects or continuous work, allowing you the ability to focus on growing your business and doing the tasks you enjoy most.
I take great pride in providing a holistic approach when working with my clients to find a suitable solution which works for them.
I am a conscientious and highly organised administration specialist, with a wide range of skills and experience in both the public and private sector.
Before becoming a business owner, I had a long administrative career in the NHS starting as a secretary working my way up to Management. The experience I gained in an office environment included minute taking, audio typing, data entry/ analysis and presentations. As a manager I secured valuable skills in event coordination, recruitment, training and finance.
I have also been actively involved in starting my partners business and was responsible for creating a bespoke invoicing and electronic filing system, engaging social media marketing and website creation.
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.
Case Studies Here is how some of our customers use us.
We have worked with this Southsea based client for over a year, starting with getting their accounts up-to-date and putting in processes to keep it that way. We have since then taken on their professional communications, newsletters and setting up of new systems to support the charity grow.
The great thing about working with other franchises has been really understanding the way their business works. The types of work we have been able to support with range from auditing files, bookkeeping admin, contacting leads, data entry and scheduling appointments.
Health & safety company
This is a client we do regular one-off pieces of work when required. We update and format health and safety documents for their clients.
This is one of our retainer clients who we look after daily with their client enquires and booking system. We also manage their Facebook account and schedule content which reflects their brand, and any marketing offers.
