Using Betty

The next time you need something done, just open askBetty on Slack and let her know what you need. Betty will let you know as soon as your task is started and will respond in Slack once it’s completed.

askBetty is powered by Virtual Gurus. We leverage talented and experienced virtual assistants throughout Canada and the United States to take care of your needs.

Each request is a minimum of one itty-bitty-Betty task. Betty will let you know if your task will take longer than 15 minutes.


Secure Purchases

We use Stripe payment processing to ensure secure transactions which means we never have access to your credit card details.

It also means that you can rest easy knowing that if you need something purchased, we can get that done for you, without needing you to share your credit card details.
