Overview

We are looking for a  long term, part-time Client Care Concierge & Administrative Assistant with a passion for helping others. You have strong problem-solving skills and the ability to think analytically. You love technology, systems and organization as much as you love adding a personal touch to everything you do. You have excellent communication and relationship building skills.

As the Client Care Concierge & Administrative Assistant, you are a major player in the company and will demonstrate patience, strong communication, empathy and adaptability. You are dependable and autonomous.

If you’re passionate about uplifting indie authors, love to serve, positive, provide rave-worthy customer service, and are highly organized, then this position is for you!

This is a part-time remote position starting at 10 hours per month with the goal of expanding into more hours in the future.

The amount of hours would depend on what you are doing and how heavy my workload is. In the beginning, Iwe will likely spend a lot of time together getting me better organized and discovering ways we can improve my workflow.

You can apply from any time zone, though I live in the Eastern Time Zone. I pride myself on being flexible and accomodating. I know that I am dedicated to my business and helping authors and I hope you are as well. But if you’ve got kids, are an author yourself, or you have some weekly thing you do where you’re not available on Wednesdays… that’s totally fine. As long as I know, we’re good.

The Tech We Use

Ideally, you should be familiar with the tech I use. Most things are a requirement in how I manage my business (as in, this is what I personally use and have no plans to change them). You don't need to be an expert in all of these - but familiarity is a plus.
  • Asana - My project management tool.
  • ThriveCart – It’s my cart system and how I manage my affiliate program
  • Membervaut – My course / training host
  • Activecampaign – Email Marketing and Automations
  • Notion – Used for a variety of organizational things

  • Smarterqueue - My social media scheduler
  • Tailwind - Pinterest scheduling and management
  • Voxer - A voice + text messaging app. How I communicate with clients and team members

It's important to note that your tasks will likely vary week to week. I don’t expect you to spin all of these plates anymore than I expect me to do so. I’m at a point in my business where I know what I need done, and what I just don’t have time for and need someone else to do for me so I can focus elsewhere.

Requirements

  • You are familiar with the ins and outs of the online business space – perhaps you have one yourself or have experience working as a VA for others and preferably the indie author space / publishing industry - perhaps you are an author yourself.

  • You have strong grammar and written communication skills and feel confident writing in the brand's voice.
