Virtual Assistant Reading
I am Melanie Wincott, the proud owner of Pink Spaghetti Reading. I specialise in helping small businesses manage their day-to-day tasks, stay organised and keep on top of deadlines. I am here to provide you with expert and affordable support to help you succeed, so you can focus on what you do best.
I am based in Overton and cover the Reading area, including Henley-on-Thames, Wallingford, and Tadley. As a small business owner, I fully understand the challenges involved and pride myself on being an active listener. I believe in a collaborative approach - getting to know my customer’s needs and being that extra pair of hands for their business. If you are looking for an experienced and dependable virtual assistant to help
you with your business needs, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
I worked for a small business for 14 years in a senior management role in academic publishing and before that, 10 years within the accounting sector. I have brought with me a wealth of experience and skills in project management, workflow processes, and business administration.
As a virtual assistant, I am passionate about helping people and ensuring their lives run as smoothly as possible. I am extremely organised and reliable and have an excellent eye for detail. I look forward to helping you make the most of your day and freeing up your time for more significant matters. I also understand the importance of staying ahead of the competition and am here to help you do just that.
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.
