Via our Consumer Resource Network, YVSG pledges to communicate with you any updates, specials, events, giveaways, contests, and promotions associated with the trusted business owners listed in our YVN directory. Here are some reasons why consumers should take the pledge to frequent the Consumer Corner, support small businesses, and ‘buy small’:


  • Most sole business owners take a deep sense of pride in their work, thus yielding more quality and efficiency in their services/products.
  • Small-operated businesses naturally recycle a larger share of revenue back into the economy, ultimately enriching the entire community.
  • Small businesses are known to provide more personalized, high quality products/services.
  • Entrepreneurship and the very promotion of it, serves as a key effect of families moving out of low wage jobs and into middle class.
  • The YVN directory strongly promotes word-of-mouth referrals, and encourages feedback so that customers are able to openly share their experiences with one another.

The YOUR Virtual Service Group Consumer Resource Network Pledge involves no sacrifice nor significant change in lifestyle. We simply encourage you to stop and consider “Buying Small” for all or most of your needs. Two times a year we will offer incentives to those who take the Pledge and use our FREE Directory of Exceptional Small Business owners. Consider registering your name on our Consumer List today and enjoy the benefits of the YVN Virtual Network. It takes a Village, in this case our Virtual Village!

  • 4 Useful Reasons to Consider a Virtual Assistant

    VA Services Banner

    The traditional personal assistant, undoubtedly a much needed individual to deliver your organization’s brand image, maintain client relations, and provide administrative support, has long been a viable choice for many business owners. But, let’s face it, finding a Virtual administrative assistant or VA can be a frightening task for any entrepreneur to tackle. Let’s take a look at some useful reasons to consider the services of a trusted Virtual Assistant.

    Gone are the days where you’re forced to rely on family and friends to help out. Gone are the days where you spend countless hours completing menial tasks that keep you from soaring in your business. We’ve undeniably entered a time in which small business support services make the lives of business owners much easier. Now we must enter a time where a growing number of entrepreneurs know that they exist and where to find them. Reliable, accountable, and affordable Virtual Assistants are just as accessible and responsible as those working right under your nose. With solid reporting techniques and a firm understanding of what it means to provide ‘assistance’ in a professional setting, Virtual Assistants or Online Support Staff have to prove their capabilities in various areas.

    4 Benefits of a Virtual Office Assistant


    • Your Small Business will reduce costs. The added expense of hiring, training, and keeping tax records for your own employees is eliminated by using the professional services of an Independent Contractor VA.
    • You will use the service when you need it and avoid paying for downtime when you don’t.
    • Your VA will take on tasks that will allow you to service your clients and customers and focus on running your business. This will mean more productivity when you are overworked and or overwhelmed.
    • Service built on consistency, reliability, and flexibility allows for a collaborative effort. Having that extra person on your team can help your business thrive and even soar!

    Specialties range from, but are not limited to, remote receptionist services and word processing to marketing and invoicing. In order to compete, these professionals must be highly skilled in many areas with rates that support an ongoing service relationship. As a business owner, your goal is to locate and work with someone who stands out of the crowd and provides exemplary service and skill. Here are a few tips when searching for your VA:

    • Are they bonded and/or insured? Taking this extra step may mean that the professional cares about your safety and security.
    • Can they provide references and/or a valid resumé? References who you may contact and a resume with verifiable information aids in any hiring decision.
    • Do they have and maintain a navigable website and/or substantial online following? Their success in this area also translates into your success. Every business now needs an online presence.
    • Are they available to take on and efficiently process your requests? This is an indication that the VA is professional, respects your time, and wants to exceed your expectations.
    • What are their communication techniques? The way they communicate with you is the way they will communicate with others on your behalf.

    The right Virtual Assistant can seamlessly provide value, balance, and stability to any professional setting. Their affordable techniques to offer the greatest return on your investment have proven time and time again to increase bottom lines. No more insurance, benefits, overhead fees, or wasted time. Locating and utilizing a Virtual Assistant is a necessary asset for any growing business that strives to minimize cost and maximize profit.

    Have you considered the option of hiring a professional Virtual Assistant? Share your experience, if you have used the support services of a VA for your business.
