Red Desk Virtual: More than just Social Media

At Red Desk, we absolutely love our social media clients which are the main core of our business.  However recently we have had more enquiries and tasks which lend themselves towards a traditional PA.  So what can Red Desk offer apart from social media services?

Minute Taking

One of our recent projects has been minuting a series of HR disciplinary meetings, producing detailed notes set out in a professional template.  Minutes are an essential way to review and measure progress and specify whose duty it is to perform which action, so if you hold regular meetings or have an important one-off meeting then why not outsource the minute taking.

Cold Calling

If you have recently bought a telephone marketing list but can’t face making countless telephone calls then you can outsource it.  We have been working with a baby photographer booking appointments for the mum and new baby to attend a photography session.  We can update you with how many calls we’ve made and any follow ups you should be aware of.

Often with a new client we find they have a list of points for us to research.  We estimate how long it will take to carry out this research and give an update after our allotted time.  Here are some things we’ve been researching about recently:

  • Best options for adding a second number to your mobile phone
  • The best online accounting package for your business
  • Private preschools within a certain postcode


If you have a new business, you need to let people know about it.  We recently:

  • created headed paper and compliment slips
  • formatted the content for a one page introduction
  • researched contact addresses
  • printed and assembled the mail outs
  • posted all the envelopes

We’re happy to purchase stationary and post your mail shot for you.  All extra costs will be added to your bill at the end of the month.

Appointment Bookings

We know that making phone calls eats into your business day.  Sometimes you need one point of contact to arrange a rather complicated appointment. For example, we work for a private landlord and recently had to find a suitable time when three freeholders at a property would be available for a surveyor visit.  It sounds simple but we had to ensure that the surveyor was still available at that time and could also gain access to a set of keys at the local estate agent.

We hope that has given more of a flavour as to what a Virtual Assistant can do to help your business.  More information about our services can be found here.
