Virtual Personal Assistants


ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — You’ve probably heard about how technology like Alexa and Siri can help make your day easier. From answering your burning questions to up-to-date weather forecasts, these robotic gadgets can be useful. But now, newer digital personal assistants are upping the game.

Now there are digital assistants. They do everything from planning trips to paying bills to making doctor appointments. For example, Fin can call, e-mail, text, schedule, research, book, and purchase items for you. Every request is handled by a team of real people that are available 24/7. The price ranges but runs as low as $20 a month for 20 effective minutes. Another digital assistant called Magic lets you communicate with a team of on-demand personal assistants. You simply text just about any request, as long as it’s possible and legal. Then, Magic will get to work for you! The cost varies but can run around $30 per billable hour.  Upwork is another site that offers freelance virtual assistants. For about $20 an hour, you can hire someone to perform a variety of daily tasks.

However, if you want to go the old-fashioned route, you can always hire an in-person assistant for about ten to 25 bucks an hour.
