When you work with an Administrative Consultants, you are working with independent specialists –not employees. How and when we work together isn’t going to look anything like the way you work with your employee. Administrative Consultants offer strategic support delivered on a monthly basis.
Administrative Consultants work with clients in continuous, synergistic relationship, with a usual commitment from the client of between 10-40 hours per month.
We do work in a mainly virtual environment and we are professionals who seek to offer you administrative support & guidance for running and building your business. As Administrative Consultants, we are looking for long-term relationships with our valued clients and enjoy being dynamic contributing members of their team.
We can help you with the necessary level of administration, from helping you take control of your busy life, to simplifying your administrative systems and creating easily accessible, repeatable processes.
Our physical location is in Bulgaria which allows you to take advantage of the time difference.
Together we'll help grow your business!!!
We suggest you order a set of hours in advance when you require tasks to be completed without a schedule. When buying a set of hours, those hours will be valid for 6 months from the date of order. While we strive to be available when you need admin support, buying a set of hours does not ensure availability. To guarantee we are available when you require admin consulting, please see our retainer alternatives underneath.
Our usual rate is $15.00 per hour billed in 15 minutes increments with time rounded up to the nearest quarter of an hour. We use MyHours time tracking software for our reports.
Rates apply to all work carried out at S.O.S office. Above rates are exclusive of extra expenses and materials which are charged separately at cost price. Emailing and internet research incurs no telephone charges.
- The Flex Plan might be the best plan for you. This plan is designed for those who would like to get support occasionally, but don't know what their usage pattern will look like. It's also a good plan if you don't have many tasks to outsource. In other words, the Flex Plan is our regular hourly rate.
The Flex plan requires you pay five hours - $ 100 in advance before services are rendered.
- Our Monthly Plans are for busy individuals and businesses. You get to choose a monthly plan that fit your budget and your schedule. Here, you pay a flat fee every month and have the Administrative Consultant for the allotted number of hours in your monthly plan. If you wish to ensure our availability for your daily, weekly or monthly administrative support, we can provide you with a retainer plan where we will allocate a fixed number of hours each month to you. Any hours which are worked over the monthly retainer will be added to the following month’s invoice. Any hours not used each month may be transferred to the following month. These hours may not be rolled over a second month. We will invoice you in advance each month for the agreed amount of hours. The Monthly Plan which is most preferred by our clients includes 40 hours (per month) for the total cost of $680.
* Discount is available depending on volume & duration of a project.
