FAQ - Why should I hire someone who works remotely?
Why should I hire someone that works remotely:
If you’re in Ohio, Kentucky or West Virginia, I offer on-site support. Even if your business is within those states, I also offer online or virtual support services. For businesses outside of the tri-state area, I only offer virtual support services.
Business today doesn’t always take place in a brick-and-mortar location. It can take place in your car, in your home-office, and even on your smartphone. Using me as your virtual support system increases the tools at your disposal, the people available to help you consistently…which, of course, all increases your productivity and your businesses bottom line. Virtual support systems are the best and least expensive way to capitalize on productivity, manage your business and achieve your goals…without the cost of a full-time employee that is paid a benefit package.
I am not a full-time employee that you’ll pay a benefit package to. I work as an independent contractor, which means, your accountant will be provided a copy of my tax id number so they can issue a 1099 for tax filing purposes. And, yes, you can claim my services to you or your business on your taxes. You’ll need to talk to your accountant for the specifics of your tax filing process.
There are ZERO hidden fees when working with me. You won’t pay me a salary. You won’t pay me through payroll; which means no federal, state, local or unemployment taxes. You won’t pay me for vacation time or sick time. You won’t pay me a retirement or insurance package. You won’t pay me a sign-on bonus.
When a client signs my estimate for each project; that is the cost. The only thing that would change that is if the client makes a change to the project or if there are traveling costs involved with a client's project. And, if that happens, I will send an addendum to the contract to either reduce the contracted price for the project, or increase it; depending on the change the client requests.
