Why Do We Only Hire Assistants Based in The United States?

We get it — it’s a little less expensive when you outsouse assistance services overseas, but keep in mind that there may be issues that can arrive due to language barriers, familiarity with the American culture, and overall communication.

1. No Language Barrier

Most of the communication will probably be through email, text, or phone. Clear communication is essential when you’re hiring a right-hand to assist you in your business.

2. No Culture Barriers

The American culture is a lot to learn in regards to finances, traveling, media, measurements, and so much more. We’d hate for you to spend a lot of your time explaining things that are foreign to someone that is not accustomed to the same American culture as yours. It would be the same if you were hired to perform work for someone that’s accustomed to a culture that is completely different than what you’re accustomed to!

Hiring in the US also allows us to do a thorough background check on each candidate, to ensure we can protect our client’s security and trust.

Your assistant’s profile will actually tell you what part of the country they live in, and many of our clients have even met their assistant in person!

3. No Major Time Zone Differences

Having an assistant that works overseas can make it extremely difficult to connect easily due to major time zone differences. Last minute tasks may not be as easy to submit if it’s midnight and they are catching ZZZs while you’re in the midst of a crisis or something needs to be done right away.

Our Buddies have years of experience working with US companies, programs, and platforms. This greatly reduces the need for you to conduct training and gives you a more immediately boost in your level of productivity.

Our Philosophy 

Quality: We support the highest standards of excellence in all that we do.

Creativity: Promoting a company culture of innovation and communication allows us to create an environment that is conducive to mold buddies that go over and beyond for their clients.

Client-driven: Our clients’ needs are the nucleus of The Buddy Effect. Your needs are executed in a timely manner while maintaining security and confidentiality at all times.

We promise to remain at the forefront of supporting new ideas, learning, marketing, and process improvement while remaining responsive to emerging trends, technologies, and opportunities.
