At Elevated Remote Services (ERS), we believe strong communication is the cornerstone of a successful relationship between you and your Virtual Assistant (VA). A well-defined communication strategy ensures clear expectations, fosters collaboration, and ultimately, maximizes the value your VA brings to your business.

  • Clear and Concise Instructions: When delegating tasks, provide detailed instructions, including specific goals, deadlines, and desired deliverables. The clearer your instructions, the less room there is for misunderstandings.
  • Regular Check-Ins: Schedule regular check-in meetings to discuss project progress, address any roadblocks, and provide feedback. This keeps you both aligned and allows for course correction if needed.
  • Preferred Communication Channels: Establish preferred communication methods (email, instant messaging, project management tools) for different types of information. This helps ensure timely responses and avoids information overload.
  • Open and Honest Feedback: Provide constructive and specific feedback to your VA. This allows them to learn and grow, ultimately improving their performance and meeting your expectations better.
  • Transparency and Visibility: Share relevant project information and updates with your VA. This keeps them informed and allows them to anticipate needs and be more proactive.
  • Invest in Training: Consider providing your VA with access to relevant training resources or tools to enhance their skills and knowledge base. This investment will benefit both you and your VA in the long run.


  • Improved Efficiency: Clear communication minimizes confusion and rework, leading to faster completion of tasks.
  • Enhanced Accuracy: Detailed instructions and regular check-ins reduce the risk of errors and ensure deliverables meet your expectations.
  • Stronger Working Relationship: Open communication fosters trust and collaboration, creating a more productive and enjoyable working partnership.
  • Increased Productivity: By streamlining communication, your VA can spend less time clarifying tasks and more time delivering results.
  • Greater Satisfaction: Everyone benefits from a clear understanding of roles and expectations, leading to a more positive and fulfilling working relationship.

At ERS, we prioritize matching you with a VA who understands your communication style and preferences. We also provide ongoing support and resources to ensure clear communication throughout your working relationship.
