Why Pink Spaghetti?
Being part of a franchise means I have a wealth and wide range of experience to call on. If I don't know the answer to something, there is usually someone I can ask for help. In the past I have used other franchisees to cover my maternity leave and holidays, ensuring resource and continuity is always there.
We are a friendly, approachable, adaptable and we can be a part of your team for as much or as little time as you need us. We often find that our clients appreciate the flexibility that we offer and the fact that they can reserve a set amount of time each month on a retainer basis or use our services for specific tasks as and when they require them.
In addition to the intense training course all franchisees are given when they join the Pink Spaghetti Family. The franchise continues to provide a wealth of regular training opportunities to assist us to ensure that we are kept updated with best practice and compliant whenever new regulations come along e.g. GDPR. Every year franchisees are invited to attend the Annual Conference to listen to inspirational talks and hear all about the launch of new initiatives. In addition to the business updates the training we receive, the sharing of best practice amongst franchisees means that we always come home full of inspiration and ideas for our own businesses and on ways we can better support our clients too.
A range of Virtual PA Services
We provide a wide range of tasks for our clients, from sending meeting confirmations and database management to creating marketing content for social media, creating e-newsletters.
We can help our clients to review their processes, get more organised and find more efficient ways of running the administration of the business and we can manage specific tasks on their behalf.
People often use our services when they are staring out and don’t have the skills in a certain area such as Social Media Management or know the best way to set up efficient processes.
Perhaps a business is growing and they need some support with some of the key tasks they need to complete to run their business smoothly and effectively, these are usually the things they don’t enjoy doing or find they have increasingly less and less time available to complete these tasks.
Alternatively, they may want to free up some time so they can spend more time on value added tasks such as meeting clients, more time with family or to take time out to achieve a better work-life balance.
