Your Research, Streamlined

Delegate your research tasks to a team of virtual assistants, starting at $11 an hour – all-in.

Exhausted doing the research yourself? Get exhaustive research instead.

When it comes to all the grunt work associated with running a business, doing research might be the most important. To truly grow your business, you have to constantly run reports and stay up-to-date. This means a lot of busy work.

  • Market Research
  • Data Entry
  • Monitoring Competition
  • And more…

Instead, delegate your research to a team of virtual assistants, starting at $11 an hour – all-in – and reclaim all that time back to focus on the big picture. Like ways of actually beating the competition.

What do businesses with remote research assistants say about We Are Working?

We used to talk about data points that were slowing us down. We didn’t know enough about our competitors and our prospects. We were collecting data on our customers, but we weren’t mining it. Now, we give our virtual assistants research criteria, and within a few days we have actionable data. East Coast Test Prep

By streamlining processes and hiring qualified, globally-sourced talent, We Are Working enabled East Coast Test Prep to get work done at 70% less per employee. They pay just 30% of what they historically spent to get the same work done.

The Benefits of Virtual Research Assistants

Less legwork. More data.

Keep Your Market Research Current

Knowing the market and your competition is vital, but can be really time-consuming. Avoid the time-sink of keeping tabs on your competition – like online secret shopping – and spend more time thinking of ways to make your business more efficient – and profitable.

Banish All that Beloved Data Entry

The bane of all businesses… And you, business owner, are not exempt. Luckily, you don’t have to be doing it yourself. Stop with all the lists, the spreadsheets, the endless data entry. Delegate these small tasks to trained virtual assistants and simply sit back, relax, and review the data.

Let Go of Lead Generation Legwork

Feel like you’re chasing your tail sometimes? Between the data entry and the market research, trying to pinpoint prospects’ contact info can be the icing on the cake. Next thing you know another week is gone. Delegate and get more time for some big-picture brainstorming.

What hours will my research assistants work?

What hours would you like them to work? Some of our clients choose to have their research assistants work while they are working – regular 9am – 5pm EST hours. Others choose to have their research assistants work while they sleep, to provide 24-hour coverage. Your research assistant can be available on nights, weekends, mornings, afternoons – you set the hours.

I’ll need my remote research assistants to work for 40 hours a week some months, and only 2 hours a week other months. Is that okay?

Yes. Our services are designed to be flexible. Your remote research assistants will work when you need them to work, and they won’t when you don’t need them.

What if I need other assistants in another area of my business, after a few months?
