“Ali is gold dust. She is by far the most trustworthy, diligent, flexible, creative, devoted and brilliant Virtual Assistant I have ever come across. She can handle any task I offer her; from website building, to social media wisdom, to setting up new systems, to graphic design, to resolving even the most troublesome tech challenges.
The best thing – we have a great time working together; Ali is a grounding, nurturing presence when things are tough, and she can always make me laugh. I regularly recommend her to my clients, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a stellar right-hand woman to help them build, manage and scale their business.”
“Highly recommend Ali for everything VA work & especially tech help on my website for things I don’t know how to do, sign up boxes, complying to GDPR!!, linking your newsletter to your mailing list and everything in-between!
A great help. Thank you.“
“I had zero previous experience of putting a website together, and getting it up and running. Ali guided me gently and expertly through the whole process. She answered all my questions. She created a style that really suited what I wanted to put over. And the website works as I had hoped.
I can thoroughly recommend Ali to anyone who wants this type of expert guidance through what I now realise is quite a complex process.”
I knew that I needed to create a website so that I had a platform for blogging and promoting my services but I had no idea how to go about this and I was concerned about how much it would cost me. I spent months worrying about it and putting off doing something about it until a friend of mine recommended Alison to create my website and support me in the early days of creating my blog.
I read through Alison’s website with great interest and I was very impressed with the clear layout and also the transparent pricing. Alison and I worked on my website via skype and screen shares and she created exactly the look that I wanted to achieve. We did a little tweaking and then the website and the first 3 blogs were live.
Alison is incredibly easy to work with and she took all the worry away from creating my website. We agreed the launch date to coincide with a trade show that I was attending and we had the site live before I went away.
I’ve gone from being terrified of creating a website to having enjoyed the whole process and I’m very proud of what has been achieved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison.”
Jeff and I have worked with Alison for several years now. Over that time she has been a pleasure to work with.
She is always very responsive and will go out of her way to help us. Nothing is too much trouble or a “silly question”. And she knows her stuff. I feel we are in very good hands and I would definitely recommend her services."
Last spring after my latest book came out, my publisher said I needed marketing help! I immediately thought of Alison Wood. I had taken her all-inclusive Social Media Marketing Bootcamp and was so impressed at how adept she is at maneuvering through the internet marketing world, not to mention her thoroughness in answering all my questions.
My publisher hired her to create FB Page, connect to Pinterest, and send out monthly newsletters on top of coming up with strategies on how to get a writer out there and noticed. Her gift for graphic design has been a real boon in bringing attention to my books. I couldn't be happier and due to my busy schedule can relax in knowing the business end of writing is in the care of someone with a dazzlingly brilliant flair for combining imagery and words! Plus, Alison Wood cares about her clients and their business needs."
“I have been working with Ali for several months now and have found her to be very professional. I am beyond delighted with how my new website looks, and Ali’s artistic flair shines through.
Ali replies promptly to my email communications, makes helpful suggestions, and is clearly knowledgeable regarding the tech that makes everything work for me. I can wholeheartedly recommend Ali and the professional services she provides.“
“Alison has been managing my social media accounts (specifically Facebook and Twitter) for some time now, and she’s done a fantastic job!
She has the perfect combination of creativity and skills — and it manifests as meaningful, engaging content. Thanks to her independence and ability to be a “self-starter,” I never have to micromanage her activities. I totally trust her judgment and decisions regarding the accounts — she’s always spot on!
She definitely takes a load off my shoulders. I highly recommend using Alison for any of your creative content needs! “
“I hired Alison Wood to write blogs for me and I have to say the work was amazing and timely. I also hired Alison as a VA for some other projects that I needed help with. I have to say that I have hired a few VA’s in the past and was not too happy with the work I received but with Alison, she is so professional and knows her stuff. The suggestions she gave me along the way helped my business.
“After some years struggling with doing my own DIY websites, and not gaining ground too much in my business, I finally recognised it was time for some help – first from a coach and then from Ali who was recommended to me… I have not been disappointed… Ali comes with fantastic skills at creating a beautiful website that perfectly fitted my needs, and she has been able to answer numerous little queries along the way, often in the middle of the night when we are both awake!
I am so very grateful to have found Ali as her attention to detail, skills and knowledge, responsiveness, availability and commitment is second to none. My website is now a thing of beauty and professional, better reflecting the work I offer. She was able to provide fantastic training videos to help me run the site, so I can still ‘tweak’ when I want to! but the groundwork has now been done, and it shines. I continue to turn to Ali when I need extra VA, social media and similar support as she is simply the best.”
When MARC Solutions became a limited company, we knew that our online image had to change. We needed to look more polished and professional. Based on some advice and referrals, we contacted Alison Wood.
Alison advised us on the right approach and put some options together for the design of our website. We chose the design and handed the work back to Alison to build the site. What amazed us was the speed at which the website was completed, first drafts were ready very quickly and the whole site completed within 2 weeks.
Alison keeps the site up to date and in addition, runs our newsletter, Facebook and LinkedIn sites, all of which helps to keep our profile current. All I have to do is provide information from time to time and leave the rest to Alison, which leaves me free to get on with the work. A very agreeable working relationship at a very sensible price.
I cannot recommend Alison and her company highly enough, she has made running the online part of our business very easy indeed."
