Praise

I’ve been really privileged to work with some incredible people. 

Here’s some of the lovely things they’ve had to say!

I’ve been working with Ana at Virtual Bird for several years now. I started out buying simple direct products that Ana sets up for you like terms and conditions and privacy policies. Then we worked together on building more complex set ups. The Caboodle Textiles website was built to my spec but entirely with Ana’s ability to understand themes and plug ins and when things need a code tweak to get them working just how you want them. These days Ana has become an essential cog in the business. Virtual Bird handle all website updates and technical set ups as well as having a more personal involvement through the accountability programme. I find Ana’s calming influence and outside perspective helps me to keep a business head straight along side my passion for my business. I’d be lost without her. What I love most of all about Virtual Bird is that I know who I’m talking to. I know that she really cares about helping my business to thrive and grow

I can’t thank Ana enough for her amazing work bringing my vision for my website to life! Its everything I wanted and more, it looks so professional compared to my old one, and it’s so much easier to use. Ana is wonderful to work with, always keeping in touch with updates and always ready to answer any questions while getting used to using the new system. I highly recommend all of Ana’s services, she’s a lovely lovely person and always knows the best way to help your business.

Had a phone call with Ana last night about a workshop I’m planning to host and can honestly say this woman is going to change my life. Made me realise the value that our businesses give to people and how much we undervalue our own skills!! Thank you so much!

I highly recommend working with Ana, she is professional and knowledgeable as well as friendly and approachable. She is helping me to take my small business to the next level which I just couldn’t have managed by myself, thank you Ana!xx

What a positive experience it has been to work with Ana! We asked her to set up a brand new complex interactive medical website, with a shop and all in two languages and we never heard the word “no”.
“Ana, can you integrate this Spanish programme into the shop?” “Well Steve, I don’t know but let’s investigate…”
She would then research, speak to the original programmers, come back with options and never once was the final answer “no”. That is definitely what I consider the best ever customer service. Highly recommended company and a pleasure to work with.

If you want to develop and improve your content, this is the course for you. I was actually sitting on the fence about this Product Description course, but reading some of the course description inspired me to take the leap and take the course and I am so glad I did! Up until then, I actually thought my product description needs no work at all. I was wrong! Ana’s course makes you think in a more scrumptious M&S way which totally transforms your listings! Not only has it helped me with my website/Etsy content/description, it has helped me change how I answer questions from clients and also comments on (FB) forums. It has helped me better my interaction with potential clients. My advice to anyone who is in doubt about the course, is if you want to generate more, better quality clients, it’s important to trust Ana and her magic with the course!

If you are anything like me my normal working day also consists of household chores and parental duties
Before I know it the day is gone and I have been a busy fool with very little or nothing achieved struggling to play catch up every day
Cue Ana Wilson
In just an hour’s call Ana gave me some pretty simple but very effective advice that has been invaluable
Her relaxed approach makes you feel totally at ease and very soon your chaos becomes calm.
Even after 1 day of implementation I achieved so much more than I had done the whole week before!

I just wanted to write a few words to shout Virtual Bird’s praises, firstly for the VA work she’s been doing for me on my Facebook page. You have been a godsend and have helped me organise and make my page look much more professional and for that thank you so so much, I can not recommend your services enough, so much so that I now have a weekly contract for VB services! Secondly for the business course, this have given me ideas and motivation and shown me how to take my little business and grow and fly, for this I will be eternally grateful thank you. The course is crammed full of info and knowledge and is an absolute must do xx

I’d also like to say a massive thank you to Anastasia at Virtual Bird for saving me from a mini meltdown 12 hours before my launch. She turned what I thought was a massive problem into a 30 minute job and even completed it for me too. If you are looking for any help with Mailchimp, WordPress, Paypal, Social Media and all kinds of other VA type tasks then she is your girl! I will 100% be using her again. Thank you!

I think I top the chart when it comes to no tech skills. Ana is extremely patient and always makes me feel like I can do it! Love you Ana Wilson you rock!

I have had the pleasure of working with Ana to re-build and re-invent my website.

Her level of skill and ability to take the idea from my head and implement it is actually exceptional. She is succinct, implements quickly and efficiently and communicates like a true professional.

I find tech a headache, it is not my area of genius, Ana, however, is truly in her zone of genius when delivering your tech needs.

I would have no hesitation recommending her to anybody I know, in fact, I am keeping her on my team going forward because she is such a great asset.

Ana has been a dream to work with and I look forward to a long professional relationship that I know will impact in a positive way on my business and my clients.

Ana took over my website recently since it had been left to go stale with my previous designers/hosts.
She revamped it, brought it up to modern standards and within a week of it going live, I’m getting calls directly from my website and winning the work. I’m a tradesman, and have always had a website, but never gained work directly from it! it was previously just an online ‘presence’ rather than a business tool… which it now is!
She focuses on EXACTLY what is needed to position the business website above the rest, with info what potential customers want to see.
As a tradesman, I would say this is a rare skill considering each website is different, with different target customers. This is not just a cut and shut website. It’s easy to use, gives the info it needs, and helps the customers make an informed choice and click up the phone.
Everything is done with minimal downtime and disruption. She made sure it was perfect before making it live.
I honestly cannot recommend her enough.
Legend.

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to Ana for my discovery call yesterday. It was so inspiring and I learnt so much in just 1 hour. I now have months of work to do! But work that I am excited to do.
It’s great to chat over your business with someone not associated with it as they look at it differently to you. You can’t overestimate what a pair of fresh eyes can do.
I don’t know Ana but have been aware of her for a long time. We started our businesses around the same time and out paths have crossed over the years in different groups etc. I’m so glad that I finally took the leap and booked an appointment with her.
I look forward to working with her more in the future.

Ana is the support every small business needs. Her tech knowledge is outstanding, her systems and processes are amazing, leaving the entrepreneur to get on with what they are actually good at! Thank you for all your help Ana, invaluable x

I’ve worked with Ana for a year now and she has transformed my business. I was struggling to achieve anything due to trying to do too much and I couldn’t find the time to get anything done properly. After the first call with Ana, it felt like things were going to improve, and they certainly did! She gave me a clear focus to start with, and then set about getting things done in the background, either things I couldn’t do or things I didn’t have the time to do. Despite her having other clients, she is always there for you and she gets things done when she says she will. It’s so fantastic to have someone like Ana in your corner, because the lonely world of entrepreneurship is no longer such a lonely place. I would recommend Ana without a moment’s hesitation. She’s not only highly effective but she’s a lovely person, a friendly ear when you’re having a difficult time and she genuinely wants you to succeed.

Ana has been creating my new website and has been infinitely patient with me during the whole process. Her knowledge and can-do attitude has made the experience really enjoyable and made me think hard about my business and the message I want to get across to my clients.
Ana Wilson you are amazing!

For anyone debating getting a website done by Ana, I want to say DO IT!!
I am pretty internet workings clueless.. I understand half of my Facebook page and IG and that’s it..
She has held my hand throughout, guiding through the entire process without making me feel stupid… quite the opposite.. she’s empowered me to step out and try more.. I now have an AMAZING website .. something way beyond what I could have achieved alone, and more!! She has done a training session with me so that in the first week, I learnt how to upload items and categories.. and understand the dashboard.. updating and backing it all up! She’s helped me understand SEO and how to highlight my products in the best way! I CANNOT thank you or recommend you enough Ana!

A huge shout out to Ana! I was lucky enough to meet Ana online in the first place, and then even luckier she was available to work with me! She helped me with my website (lickety split too!) and with some VA work. Very detail oriented, efficient, quick and super friendly. Thank you Ana for all your help, advice and support

I’ve been working with Ana for a couple of months now and she’s been fantastic. Somehow managing to combine IT geekery with PA efficiency, she’s had a positive impact on the business already. Always proactive and always willing to help, it’s great to not just have to direct individual tasks every day, but instead have her come up with ideas of how to improve things on her own.

If there are any processes that you are struggling with, or any tasks you’re doing that aren’t the best use of your time, I’m sure Ana can help you.

P.S- but fuck off the lot of you, if she gets too busy for me i’ll cut you all.

Very grateful to Ana for clearing a job I’d been putting off for years! I needed some Etsy listings moving from one shop to another and as I didn’t want to do it I just kept finding other things to do. Ana quoted me for how long it’d take and how much it would be and I sent all the details. She completed it within a few days for me and now I can get on with other things. Thank you- I would highly recommend Virtual Bird to anyone looking to offload.

I have worked with Ana for several years and found her services invaluable!
She’s not only easy to chat to and very approachable – but her knowledge and wide range of skills is superb!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ana to other independent business who need a little, or a lot, outside support for admin, website support & design, and generally a little helping hand to guide the way.

I just want to say a huge thank you. Talking to someone completely unconnected with me and my situation to advise me in a way that you did really and truly helped. I feel more at peace with my situation and my decision. I think when you advised a few months of calm and peace and rest is the perfect thing to do. Right now. I am so eternally grateful that I got in touch with you. And grateful to you for such honesty. You have proved that legends and saints truly do walk the earth. Thank you

For all of my business buddies, this is the page of my business guru Ana. She is amazing and is my wingman (sorry but winglady or wingperson just doesn’t sound right) in getting my business launched later this year. If you need any virtual assistant support I highly recommend her. She knows her stuff and is a techie whizz, she puts me through my paces and I’m so grateful that she has made me accountable.

Hello,
I don’t think i’ve posted in here before, as i’m generally not around on my personal Facebook much, but i just had to come and thank Ana.
Earlier this year she helped me rebrand and also built me a website (which was no easy feat for her as i’m rubbish at technological stuffs, and i needed a lot of hand holding and general help and advice).
The website, and rebrand, have had such a wonderful response from my customers, though unfortunately there was a few problems a month or so ago, meaning that Facebook deemed my site unsafe.
Ana has worked so hard to firstly make my site safe again, and now to get Facebook to accept it as safe, after i had no joy at all.
Ana, you really are fantastic at what you do. You truly go above and beyond and are well and truly worth EVERY single penny. I love the fact that i get such a personal and friendly service, and that it’s obvious that you do your very best.
I seriously couldn’t do any of this without you.
Thank you.

Sooo I had a Discovery Call with Ana Wilson today! Well it was fab, Ana is very down to earth and made me feel at ease and not stupid with some of the things I said! It was a productive call that gave me clarity for my path ahead, my head has been whirling with ideas since and I cannot wait to work with Ana. If you haven’t had your Free Discovery Call.. book it now!! 🙂

I had been procrastinating with a project I needed to complete so I asked Ana to help. She focused me to identify what was crucial so I could cut through the overwhelm.
With weekly calls Ana was my rock, cheerleader, sanity checker and navigator through it all. The project was completed on time and launched successfully.
There was no way I could have ever done it on time without Ana’s support and guidance. She kept me on point, taking the time to learn what personal working style suited me best and coaxing me through.
I highly recommend Ana, she is an absolute joy to work with and I am really looking forward to working with her again soon.
