I’ve been really privileged to work with some incredible people.
Here’s some of the lovely things they’ve had to say!

Ana is a fantastic technical support for my business. She is so helpful and I have yet to find a question that she hasn’t been able to answer! It is so reassuring to know that no matter how much I break my website or panic that I’ve pressed the wrong button or feel completely lost over some technical jargon, she will always be there to fix it, support me and explain things in a simple way. I couldn’t run my business without her!
Everybody should have their own Ana, she helps me to get not only my website and admin organised but also helps me to organise my thoughts and goals. I always feel so much calmer and motivated after speaking to her and recommend her services to anyone who will listen to me ❤️

I would like to point you all in the direction of my beautiful Ana Wilson from Virtual Bird I am going to introduce a thankful Thursday as well and 1000% Ana will feature in that, but my gosh, she has absolutely been a diamond going the extra mile and then more She’s fabulous
Just to give you an overview, I am, not technological at all surprise surprise and my original website domain was with shoppify which was OK but the price kept increasing and I felt quite alone support wise. I suddenly decided to take a chance on me in the words of Abba and use my savings from over the past 5 years. (which isn’t a lot) from Little Missy Magpie my current beautiful business. I wanted to put it towards having my very own website
I have no idea how to do this no clue whatsoever. I put a general post in a Mum business group and so many lovely people commented, but there was something about Ana!!!
She was so down-to-earth, so understanding not pushy. Really informative and didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear, but more what I need to hear So Ana, from day one has always had my back completely. She understood me which that in itself is a feat And she understood what I wanted my website to be…. like home from home. Sparkly magical an Empowering Emporium! Not just a selling station All the times when I said I couldn’t she told me I could, and she gave me the hope and the belief and the strength and the encouragement and the know how, for how to do it. She handled all the legal technical stuff and held my hand along the way consistently pushing me to believe in myself as she did.
Ana you are amazing and I simply could not have done this without you. Thank you so much
A massive shout-out to the amazing Ana from Virtual Bird who has re built my website completely from scratch as it was a little out of date (huh hmm totally not 10 years out of date ) I’m so over the moon, she’s done an incredible job and it’s already making my life so much easier in terms of uploading new stock etc!! I’m still trying to add new stock and take new photos but feel free to take a peak in the meantime and see what you think!

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

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
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.

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!
Ricky BeatyBeaty Consultancy
Working with Ana is a complete joy. She’s a lively, friendly and insightful. Frankly I have no idea how our business functioned before we met.
Ana manages our website, social media, email outreach, and all the other stuff I’m terrible at organising. But she’s also a really useful and valuable sounding board for discussing marketing and positioning different service offerings. She brings with her the wealth of experience she has gained from working with such varied industries, as well as her bright and fair outlook on the world at large.
Michelle RobinsonPink Flower Designs
Ana seriously is an absolute superstar! I have been working with her for the past 6 months and she has taken me from an overwhelmed mess to being focussed and driven.
Prior to working with Ana, I was just bumbling my way through. I didn’t know what I needed to do to move my business forward and I felt so lost.
But Ana has worked through everything with me and I now have a clear direction of where I am going. And she keeps me on track to make sure I get there. I would be seriously lost without her!
Everyone needs an Ana in their life!
Michelle Jackson-MogfordThe Creative Crafter
Everyone needs an Ana in their pocket, my little tech fairy has waved her magic wand and come to my rescue a few times recently when I just didn’t ‘get it’ she did, when I pressed the wrong button … twice, she fixed it and when it all got too much she quietly, quickly and brilliantly got the jobs done that I didn’t have time for. Ana you are magic Mx
Heidi LawtonExtra Special Touch
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.
AlisonTobias Music Tuition
I know I’ve said it before but Ana helps me keep some sanity and stops me from packing it all in to work in Tesco. I don’t know how any business survives without her support.
I love my job. I love my kids. I also love my two weeks off. And Ana.

Super useful conversation with VIRTUAL BIRD who is an entrepreneur and EXCELLENT virtual assistant who supports small businesses. No bullshit, totally authentic, honest and all round lovely human being.If you need some support, please reach out to her, you won’t regret it.Thank you so much Ana for your time and help.🥰
Lisa StandleyCottage Coppicing
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!
Tracy HanniganLondon Osteopath
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 brought Ana onboard to support me with accountability and admin for my small business. She is an absolute life line. Ana keeps me focused, keeps me out of my comfort zone so together we can implement goals and push my businesses further than I ever could do alone. She understands my neurodiversity, she has taken time to understand how I work and then helped me adapt. We have our weekly calls where Ana helps me plan, organise and execute what needs to be done, and we do get it done. She brings a caring but motivating attitude to the table. Ana’s professionalism and expertise has got me out of many pickles. She has built websites for me, maintains them and fixes all my bads when I click on things I shouldnt have. She is just wonderful. Every business needs an Ana!
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 am beyond thrilled with the exceptional services provided by Ana Wilson. As a tech support and web designer, Ana is nothing short of brilliant. Her work speaks volumes about her expertise and dedication to excellence. Not only is Ana a talented professional, but she is also a lovely lady to collaborate with. Her fast response time is truly remarkable, ensuring that any technical issues or design needs are swiftly addressed. What’s even more impressive is that Ana offers all these top-notch services at an excellent price that is affordable for a small business like mine. Working with Ana on a monthly basis, including ongoing updates to my members platform, has been a game-changer for me. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of tech support, web design services and making a teaching platform and I’m sure a lot more within this field.
ClairePrincess & The Frock
I’d been having problems with my website for months and months. It was becoming a huge source of stress for me and I was spending hours attempting to sort things myself to no avail. A friend recommended Ana to me after I’d spent the morning in tears over my site!! From the very first zoom call with Ana I felt like a weight had been lifted! She understood all the issues I had and was confident she could solve them and make my website great! Ana was so easy to talk to and positive and I left the call feeling so much happier knowing it would be sorted! Ana kept me updated every step of the way with what needed to be done and kept me informed with how many hours it would take etc. It turned out I had some pretty big problems with my website due to my previous host and my site had some legal information missing! Ana solved it immediately for me!
Ana completely transformed my website and gave me my own branding font and colour and made it so much more user friendly! She made it simple for customers to search for items and uploaded all my products for me which would have taken me forever!!!!
I’ve had a huge response from customers saying how much easier it is to navigate and how they love the look of it.
Honestly Ana is a superhero!!! I find it so much easier now to maintain it and I know Ana is on hand if I get stuck.

I’ve been working with Ana for around 7 years now and she’s been fantastic. Somehow managing to combine IT geekery with PA efficiency, she’s had a positive impact on my businesses. 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.

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.
Tim Rundle-WoodTwoodle Co
Ana is simply amazing. She built and now maintains our website and has become a critical and irreplaceable member of my team. Ana built me a WordPress website from scratch and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I now have a website I own completely (as opposed to renting one like Wix or Shopify). If you’re contemplating having a website built by Ana, do it now! Ana has trained me on everything I need to know to manage the website and keep improving it. She’s always on hand to help should anything go wrong (I accidentally deleted the entire website and thanks to Ana, it was backed up and was back online within an hour!). I can’t recommend Ana enough, she has become a mentor
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.
Nina GoodallNgozi Sews
That’s the best £60 I’ve ever spent! You are wonderful!
Ana built me a beautiful website, I get so many compliments about it and the after service and support I have received from her has been amazing!
She is one of the nicest people I have worked with on my Business.
Her discovery calls, her business/technology knowledge is remarkable and has helped me to grow as my business has grown.
I highly recommend working with Ana.
Lindsay RhodesThe Hippie Dyer
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.

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!! 🙂
Sarah RoweSurrey Holistic Healing
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.

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’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!
