Do you provide hourly support on an ‘as-needed’ basis?
A: Thanks for asking – We do not work on an as-needed basis. The EA Group works on a retainer with an ongoing commitment. Minimum commitment is 3 months. If you are interested in those type of services, we have amazing referral partners! Feel free to ask to be connected to them!
What is the benefit of being on a retainer model?
A: The primary benefit is not having to worry about your monthly payment fluctuating. After a consultation, we will present a proposal for the scope of work. The only time your retainer will change, is if the volume of business has changed, at which point your project manager will discuss options with you. You will receive the same invoice every month!
What if I start and find that virtual support doesn’t work for me, or I need someone in-house, or my business changes and I need a different solution, am I locked into a contract?
A: Absolutely not! Whatever the reason, you are able to opt out of our agreement with 30 days’ notice. This gives us more than enough time to wrap up your project and train you on anything pending.
What if I have a team, I just need someone to manage them?
A: We accept Project Management clients who want to remove themselves as the bottleneck in their business. We are well versed in managing teams, especially virtual teams so that you can focus on your role as CEO.
Will you come to my office and work with me?
A: We do not offer onsite services for administrative support. Our team works on a virtual basis.
What time zone are you on?
A: Our team is based in Florida and works on Eastern Standard Time, Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.
Why don't you post about your clients?
A: The privacy of our clients is of utmost importance to us, as such we do not advertise or use them in our advertising because we operate as a member of their team.
