Why BPOVIA virtual assistant firm is better than Elance, ODesk, Guru?

May 21st, 2009

Elance, ODesk and Guru are trying to the “eBay of Outsourcing”. The idea is great but there are fundamental flaws in this model: Most of the bidders on those sites are typically freelancers, self employed and work at home. The reliability and quality of service are highly unpredictable. Elance, ODesk and Guru are just middlemen or marketplace so they have no control about the bidders at all.

Traditional Chinese holiday—Qingming

April 2nd, 2010

Qingming is one of the twenty-four solar terms that the ancient Chinese gave to the twenty-four divisions of their year. Qingming is also one of the most important festivals in China which comes within ten days before or after April the 5th every year.

It originated from ceremonial worship of ancient emperors’ tombs. Latter on, the practice was generally adopted by the public to pay tribute to ancestors. On that day, people visit and sweep forefather’s tomb, recalling love and memory of the late family members. Although Qingming is a festival of mourning, it does not have to be sad. Since the festival falls in spring, it is a great time for outdoor activities such as football, swinging and tree planting. Cuisine on Qingming is special. In ancient times, people did not make fire on that day so they ate prepared cold food instead. Different regions have different specialties: in northern China, folks love date cake and wheat cake while in the south, people prefer green glutinous dumpling and honeyed lotus root stuffed with rice.

In modern China, people rarely have time for this festival due to fast tempo of life. To preserve national tradition and give people more time to rest, the government made Qingming an official national holiday in 2008. The public including staff of BPOVIA love this opportunity for family and relaxation.

This year, Qingming holiday starts from April the 3rd to 5th, that is to say, BPOVIA will be on vacation next Monday. Should you have any problem please leave a message and we’ll handle it Tuesday. In the end, wish everyone a nice holiday!

Pay Less Now, Cost You More Later

March 30th, 2010

In virtual assistance industry, it is very likely that the less you pay for your assistant, the more it will cost you for the remedy of an unsatisfactory task. However, seldom are virtual assistance service providers ready to admit this, insisting that alluring low price and state-of-the-art service can come side by side. Uncovering some providers’ low-price tags, you’ll see how they cut costs in the following aspects:

1 venue for workplace: A lot of virtual assistants are home-based freelancers.

2 less recruitment costs: face-to-face interview might be skipped; Generally speaking, one assistant has to do multi-types of work ranging from data entry to WordPress design.

3 “thrifty” on communicational cost: they are cautious about extra expenditure generated by long phone calls and video conference.

Disadvantages caused by above factors such as project delay, failure in communication and lack of focus will generate extra cost for clients, namely, you have to spend more time in order to achieve expected results.

However, some virtual assistance service providers, like Bpovia, are dedicated to providing first-rate service rather than participating in price biding competition. Our services are better with reasonable price. We boast 3 advantages over other companies:

1 Thanks to team work and project based cooperation, we achieve higher efficiency with each one doing the task he or she is good at. For instance, VAs take care of clients; graphic designers work on innovative creation and web programmers focus on site construction and maintenance.

2 Because we work together in the office building, Bpovia is more of a well-structured company rather than a group of home-based freelancers.

3 With Skype, international phone line and video conference operating simultaneously, effective and timely communication with our clients becomes our prestigious advantage.

As the Chinese proverb goes, Cheapness bargains no fine goods; fine goods are not cheap. It is cost performance ratio that rules. And Bpovia is just the kind of provider you are looking for.

The power of keyboard is rising so quickly that any ambitious website could not overlook it. It is high time that one did SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to attract search engines’ attention.

So how does SEO work and what’s its commercial value? Google will crawl your blog to find contents and keywords and when Google finished crawling through your blog, the content from your blog will get indexed in a large database where researchers can retrieve your content by searching with keywords using the Google search engine. By adding relevant keywords in your articles, SEO try to achieve the highest position rank possible. SEO also establish back links which will drastically help you to achieve a higher Google page rank. Higher ranking means more business opportunity since almost every netizen use search engine to find information. SEO can:

  1. Appeal to potential client using search engine to visit your site thus getting their target goods on your site.
  2. If not selling goods yourself, you can take advantage of clickstream to recommend business partners.
  3. Bulks of traffic volume can let more people know your brand and cooperate image thus achieving publicity success.
  4. Clickstream and ranking are indexes of authority and potential of a site. The more visitors you get, the easier you’ll get sponsorship by advertising agencies.

In one word, SEO is a great promoter of business opportunity. The earlier you realize the commercial value of keyboard, the more you will reap from search engines.
