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.
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.
We know! You’re dying to find out how Betty can help get your stuff done. Here’s some inspiration to get you started…
You’ve just finished a three-hour (!) board meeting and you’re not looking forward to transcribing the audio file! But that’s not a problem for you – you know askBetty will transcribe the notes and send them out to the board to review.
Your social media posts for next week’s announcement are written but need some editing love. Call in askBetty, your secret weapon, to add some polish (and those pesky hashtags).
Saturday is a special occasion. askBetty can make it even more special. Arrange a car service, make dinner reservations at the latest hot spot and have your favourite bottle of bubbles waiting when you and your companion arrive at the table.
An amazing seat sale to one of your fave destinations has popped up but you’re in back-to-back meetings and know they’ll sell out before you have a chance to book. Shoot askBetty a note with your travel dates and other details – she’ll source all of your travel options for you while you’re taking care of business.
This is the summer you want to get some renos done around the house and first on your list is painting the house. Betty can source competitive quotes and schedule the contractor, taking one thing off your gotta-get-done list.
