Virtual Emily's approach to disclosing service costs and margins is not straightforward on their website, which may be due to the complexity of their specialized staffing services. In an industry where transparency is increasingly important, it's imperative that clients have a clear understanding of their financial obligations and the value they receive. This article attempts to unravel Virtual Emily's pricing structure, particularly in their focus areas of data, marketing, administration, customer service, and sales. We will compare their approach to the transparent and customer-centric models offered by other key players in the industry, with the goal of providing a well-rounded perspective for companies seeking reliable and clear staffing solutions.

Virtual Emily's cost for companies in the U.S.

Understanding Virtual Emily's pricing strategy requires piecing together information from several sources, as their website does not provide explicit details. Here's what we've gathered about their cost structure for businesses, particularly in the U.S., after doing some research with them:

Contract types:

  • Virtual Emily offers two types of contracts: part-time and full-time.
  • The part-time contract involves working 4 hours per day for a total of 20 hours per week.

Pricing for tech roles:

  • Virtual Emily does not currently recruit developers; they are considering it, but the closest available role is in the data field.
  • The cost for these roles does not exceed $4,000 USD.

Payment structure:

  • Payments must be made in advance at the beginning of each month.
  • The fee includes operational costs, support, bonuses, salaries and benefits.
  • An additional 4.1% fee is charged for credit card payments.
  • Virtual Emily issues a W9 form at the end of the year to facilitate the client's tax process.

Virtual Emily has certain limitations and considerations regarding pricing, contracts, and candidate turnover, but it does provide data services and tools to monitor and manage workers. Clients can interview candidates and receive performance reports.

However, it should be noted that their focus is on virtual assistants, and most of the information and reviews found are related to virtual assistants, as shown in the image.

Our thoughts on the pricing structure of Virtual Emily

While Virtual Emily is a unique offering in the staffing industry, particularly in data services, there are certain limitations and considerations to be aware of regarding pricing, contracts, and candidate turnover. Despite these challenges, Virtual Emily provides valuable services and tools to effectively monitor and manage workers. Clients have the ability to interview candidates to ensure a good fit and receive regular performance reports, increasing transparency and accountability in the staffing process.

It's worth noting that while we couldn't find in-depth reviews on platforms like Clutch.co for Virtual Emily, the available information suggests a focus on customer satisfaction and operational efficiency.

However, the lack of detailed breakdowns on how much of the client's payment is allocated to the candidate's compensation may lead some clients to seek more transparent and straightforward pricing models, especially when hiring for tech-related roles.

In our view, based on industry standards and our understanding of the market, it's critical for staffing firms to maintain a fair balance between what they charge clients and what they pay candidates. For example, if a staffing firm is charging a client a significant amount for a particular role, a significant portion of that fee should ideally go toward the candidate's compensation. This practice not only ensures fairness, but also helps attract and retain top talent.

Teilur Talent understands the hidden costs of non-transparent pricing when hiring remote employees. With the knowledge we have built over the years in the American market and Latin America workers, Teilur Talent offers cost-effective solutions and fair salaries, with more than 80% of the payment going directly to the worker - one of the highest percentages in the industry.

Based on our experience and market observations, particularly in the Latin American market, we have compiled a calculator to guide hiring managers on what they can expect to pay for similar services. It is designed to provide a clearer picture of competitive rates and help make informed decisions when choosing a staffing partner.

Conclusion

While Virtual Emily offers a range of services and tools beneficial for businesses, especially in non-tech roles, clients should consider all aspects, including pricing transparency and candidate compensation, when selecting a staffing partner. Understanding these factors is key to establishing a successful and mutually beneficial relationship with a staffing firm.

1

How is Teilur Talent different from other tech recruiting companies in LATAM?

At Teilur Talent, we take a mission-focused approach to recruiting, ensuring that our candidates are aligned with your company's vision and goals. Unlike other tech recruiting companies in LATAM, who may focus solely on technical skills, we prioritize the cultural fit and dedication of our team members to your company. For this reason, we do not support project contractor or freelancer roles. Instead, we focus on fully devoted team members who will help you achieve long-term success. If you are looking for freelancers to complete one-off projects, you probably are better off going to companies like fiver.com, toptal.com or upwork.com.

How does Teilur Talent attract and retain the best talent compared to other companies?

At Teilur Talent, we offer our candidates competitive salaries that are 2x to 3x higher than what tech companies would pay locally. This allows us to attract top talent and retain highly motivated and loyal team members. Additionally, we focus on finding candidates whose values align with the purpose, visoin, and mission of our clients. This approach ensures that our engineers and tech talent are not just coding and completing task—rather, they become part of a greater purpose, which gives them meaning and helps us attract and retain the best talent.

3

What are the typical tech roles that Teilur Talent recruits for?

At Teilur Talent, we specialize in recruiting for a wide range of tech roles that are typically in high demand. These include positions such as DevOps engineers, QA analysts and engineers, back-end and front-end developers, data scientists, product managers, business developers, and technical sales positions. Essentially, we recruit for most roles that are needed in B2B and B2C tech-focused businesses.

What are Teilur Talent's fees and pricing structure?

At Teilur Talent, we believe in transparency. We charge a flat rate fee of 20% of what the client pays. This way, our clients know exactly what they are paying for and how much the candidate gets. As an example: If a client hires a software engineer for $60,000 per year ($5,000 per month), Teilur's monthly fee would be $1,000 (20% of $5,000). We don't believe in hidden fees or unwanted surprises, so we disclose all costs upfront to both candidates hired and companies. When exploring other alternatives, make sure they are transparent about their pricing. We believe this is paramount for the benefit of all parties involved in this new era of remote work.

5

What is the candidate screening process at Teilur Talent, and how do you ensure a good fit for my company?

At Teilur Talent, we take candidate screening very seriously. We use a multi-layered approach to find the best candidates for our clients, starting with screening thousands of candidates from our internal and proprietary networks. We leverage AI technology to assess whether a candidate matches the technical skills required for a given job opening. We also perform additional personal evaluations to ensure that the candidate has the soft skills, culture fit, and English language skills required to excel in their new role. Our rigorous screening process ensures that only the best candidates make it through to our clients, saving them time and helping them find the best talent for their teams.
