Zirtual Featured on the WSJ: Busy Professionals Turning to Virtual Assistants to Save Time

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-02-20

Imagine a world where mundane tasks like checking email and scheduling appointments essentially vanished from your to-do list. Well, with a Zirtual virtual assistant, they can. Zirtual, a graduate of the Silicon Valley Founder Institute, matches busy professionals with virtual assistants to take care of time consuming tasks.

The increasing popularity of virtual assistance for busy professionals caught the attention of Sue Shellenbarger of the Wall Street Journal, who featured several Zirtual clients and assistants in the article “Get Me a Hair Appointment and Empty My Inbox”.

Ranging between $97 and $997 usd per month, Zirtual assistants can be hired for simple requests or unlimited help for up to 50 hours per month. A typical ZA is based in the US, is college educated, is looking for part time work, and loves to problem solve. The now Las Vegas based startup recently announced a $2 million seed round backed by Tony Hseih and Mayfield, which was reported by TechCrunch in January.
