CHECK OUT THE LIST OF THINGS YOUR BUDDY CAN HANDLE
THE BUDDY EFFECT IS YOUR PERSONAL ASSISTANT THAT IS LIKE YOUR BUDDY!
We employ U.S. based, college-educated assistants that are trained to tackle your administrative and personal needs. Our Buddies are detail-oriented and are dedicated to ensuring that you are working more efficiently. We implement a thorough training process — their communication, creativity, and technology skills are tested and we select the assistants that we know will take your efficiency to another level.
We can tackle all of the tasks that you would hire an in-house assistant to complete without committing to offering payroll and benefits, therefore cutting your costs tremendously.
Get started by having your assistant set up meetings, manage your crazy schedule and organize your inbox. We can help remind you of that important call, book that special reservation, handle your outgoing calls, and plan your weekend getaway.
We take care of all your administrative needs, therefore freeing time for you to enjoy life without worrying about pesky deadlines.
With your Buddy handling all the small stuff, you can start focusing on what’s truly important, in work and life.
We provide assistance virtually to managers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses who may not have the equipment, space, funds, or even the desire to hire a physical in-house staff. The Buddy Effect is designed to be a one-stop shop. We are proactive with our clients, which gives us a competitive advantage. We get to know you personally, take the time to fully understand your needs, and offer a personalized experience. Clients work with us to cut costs while freeing themselves from the frustration of trying to juggle all of the tasks at hand. We can tackle your jobs from start to finish, taking the burden off of you.
PLANS BUILT FOR EVERY PERSON.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Our Buddies are available to assist you on weekdays between 9:00 am CST – 6:00 pm CST. If you contact us outside of those hours, we will be sure to get back to you during business hours.

Our services are structured as monthly subscription services. While each plan offers a different level of service, our hours do not roll over nor do we refund any unused time.
Due to certain legalities, our Buddies are unable to provide assistance with accounting tools (but we can definitely research a great CPA or financial advisor for you!)
I’M GLAD I CAME ACROSS THE BUDDY EFFECT. I LOVE IT AND WOULD RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE.
We use The Buddy Effect to manage our daily schedule, down to the smallest task. We have even recommended their services to parents of our mentees that need a little help keeping things organized in their daily lives.
I have had a great experience with The Buddy Effect. All my tasks are done on time and it is a big help that my assistant is proactive. I would refer any friend or client of mine to The Buddy Effect.
