Just as Batman has Robin, Superman has Jimmy Olsen; you too need a sidekick who can let you focus on saving the world while they keep an eye on trivial issues.

Our Buddies take the time to fully understand your needs and offer a personalized experience that sets you to spend your time in a better way.

Within no time, you’ll be a mentor, a hero to your sidekick, and an individual who knows what they are doing! Your Buddy will tackle your jobs from start to finish, taking the burden off of you.

Our clients absolutely love us because oftentimes, they can cut costs while freeing themselves from the frustration of juggling all of their tasks at hand.

We are always ready…always there.

Why are our Buddies primarily based in the United States?

At the Buddy Effect, we tend to connect you with assistants that are native to the United States. Why? Because with them, you don’t have to face issues that can arrive due to language barriers, familiarity with the American culture, and overall communication.

1. No Language Barrier

It’s all about communication! Imagine not being able to convey your message clearly to your buddy. Wouldn’t it be a drag? 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. Wouldn’t it be a drag if you had to spend a lot of time explaining things that are foreign to someone? That’s why we connect you with local talent that is geared towards getting things done for you!

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.

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. Imagine having a last-minute task, and your assistant is catching ZZZs while you’re in the midst of a crisis?

We don’t let that happen at the Buddy Effect. This approach reduces the need for you to conduct training and gives you a more immediate boost in your level of productivity.

Our Philosophy 

Quality: To ensure consistent, high-quality services, our Buddies are thoroughly tested and trained. Simply put, 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 molding Buddies that go over and beyond for their clients. We allow our Buddies to use their freedom to apply creative means and methods to provide our clients with results that surpass their expectations.

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. As an agency, we are equipped with a team of rockstar virtual assistants — this means that we are more than capable of partnering you with the perfect Buddy for any job.

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.
