Anne is simply wonderful! I could not run my business without her! She has been an incredible support in so many ways over quite a few years now. I have had other assistants over the 12 years I have been running this business but none of them have lasted because they have not had the combination of commitment, capability, skill, integrity and heart that Anne has. She goes above and beyond, she is a fantastic problem solver, has great skills across many different technologies, is software savvy, great with customer care and has a great level of creativity. She is a stand out because she will stick at something until she gets it, finds a solution or a work around which means I can rely on her and know she has my back! What a blessing to have found her! I value her and appreciate her immensely!

Anne has been an absolute god send to me. Knowing that my social media is looked after has enabled me to grow my business. She is always coming up with great idea that I never thought about, always going way beyond my own expectations. If you’re looking for an amazing team player Anne is your lady. Very, highly recommended.

Karen Achilles

I connected with Anne when exploring options for outsourced social media management. She was warm and made me instantly feel that she cared about my business and what the goals I had around social media were. Anne checked in with me each month to see what I’d like to be the focus of the month and then created beautiful and creative visuals, with relevant hashtags and copy all scheduled and ready to go for each month. Definitely recommend Anne if you’re looking to step back from social media for your business.

Rhyannon Perkins, Founder & Director – Be Heard Therapy & Support

Anne helped us to migrate our database from Mailerlite to Convertkit and then drafted and set up several email sequences in ConvertKit as well as creating pop-ups and sign-up forms. She was very responsive to all my questions and her work has helped us to grow our open rates, click-through rates and number of subscribers.

I came to Anne AFTER I had tried to set up our new business website myself. My first mistake, not getting Anne before I started. She is a super star, & managed to have our site finished in a timely manner. The finished product was exactly how we wanted it, with some welcomed extras. Anne’s eye for detail & knowledge are second to none. Highly recommend.

Madison – Coastal Brush

Anne has been working on our 2 social media brand accounts and her work has been excellent. She is creative and on point. It is a pleasure to work with her.

Linda Siekdrees – Plantur39

I am starting an online business for the first time and Anne was recommended to me as someone who would be able to interpret the heart of my business (even when I was a little unsure of what that was!) and help me put it out into the world and she has done just that! I always find Anne to be so supportive and encouraging and she absolutely went above and beyond my expectations. On top of this Anne is such a pleasure to deal with. I always feel uplifted and that everything is going to be great after speaking with her. I think she is amazing and look forward to continuing our working relationship as my business grows. Thank you Anne!

Tracy Prescott, Self Connection

Thank you Anne. Anne came to my rescue when I needed tech support with my website and online cart. She was professional.

Jennifer Parker, Real Vision Life Coaching

Anne was referred to me by a colleague as a website designer that “would be able to interpret my vibe into a website that worked”. Anne nailed just that, capturing my vibe and her making it work saw a 17% increase in my website sales in the first month. I have been so impressed that I have now engaged Anne to help handle other aspects of my digital world and I recommend her as somone who will not only get you but is also a pleasure to work with.  Jennifer Jefferies

Quite simply, Anne is amazing. Social media is a forever changing world which I just don’t have the time to stay on top of. I find that Anne keeps herself educated and up to date with what is going on. Then, armed with all her knowledge, she doesn’t just do what you ask, but offers her ideas and opinions. Her creativity is awesome! I just love what she is doing with my brand. So if you are looking for someone with knowledge, passion, creativity, warmth and who delivers – I can highly recommend Anne.

Cindy Mitchell, Aqua Dash

We run a very busy health clinic and needed the right person to manage our day to day enquiries, bookings, patient needs and office administration. Anne came highly recommended and we could not be happier, she has been nothing but professional and a great asset to our company. Very happy.

Scott Larkman, The Body Balance Company 

Anne is an exceptional VA. I’ve worked with Anne on numerous occasions over the past 12 months for a variety of both small and larger tasks. It is always a delight to know that a task will be completed in a timely manner to a very high standard. Anne’s work ethic is tremendous, and I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful VA who can almost read my mind when it comes to what I need. I can wholeheartedly recommend Anne and her services.

Kylie Newberry, Our Food System

Anne has helped grow our kindergarten to capacity in just twelve months.  Our website, social media and Google search traffic has increased by a huge 65% and we now have a wait list for enrolments.

Anne’s social media and marketing strategies are brilliant, and her eye catching and professional marketing collateral has certainly increased our profile both online and in the community.  She has an amazing gift of understanding exactly what will work for us and we are always thrilled with the results.

Anne is such a pleasure to work with.  Nothing is too much trouble, and her cheerful demeanour always brightens our day.  Everyone needs Anne in their life!

Lou Skepper, Highmount Preschool

It’s rare you come across an assistant that is skilled, dedicated, professional and goes above and beyond for you and your business. That is what I have found in Anne. She has been such a phenomenal help in my business over the last 12 months that I would not be anywhere near where I am without her. She has helped me launch my first major program that was sold out and ran seamlessly. She is always ahead of the game making suggestions and checking in around what I might need.  She is an absolute wealth of knowledge and has been able to provide services, information and referrals on just about anything I need. She is the secret weapon in my business and she is a gorgeous, personable, courteous and lovely person to connect with. I’m blessed to have her. 

Leisha Jarrett, Psychic Intuitive | Coach & Facilitator

Anne has been a huge and instrumental part of my business over the past couple of years and I am *so* grateful that I found her!  Starting an online business is a huge and exciting undertaking with lots of learning and challenges along the way. Having Anne on the team has made the process so much more manageable and enjoyable. She has brought incredible wisdom, insights and excellence to multiple dimensions of my business. Her expertise has brought me, my business and online presence to a new level.  Anne is extremely smart, warm, funny, enthusiastic, dedicated and creative. She has added immeasurable value to my business and she is such fun to work with! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who needs some energy, life, organisation or inspiration injected into their business and life. She is truly amazing.   

Alice Crawley

Anne raised the bar on my social media presence with her proactive approach to blog and content creation. Great communication skills and always on hand for questions.

Anne is a total pleasure to work with: professional, switched on, and fast. Seriously, I have no idea how she turns things around so quickly. I’m pretty sure she’s disguising a superwoman suit under her civilian clothes. 

Kate Byrnes from Betty Means Business

Anne has been the angel that made my launch possible. That knowing that I had someone covering my back. Checking the technical details, giving me mountains of moral support, double checking things and staying one step ahead was the best investment I could ever make. She is worth every penny and her very comprehensive skills make her a huge asset for any entrepreneur with a big vision and the desire to take their gifts into the world. Very grateful for her work.  

Cristina Londono from Wallnut Studio

Every business owner wants an Anne Clark from First Step Virtual Assistant on their team. Anne is tenacious, reliable and hardworking. If an idea isn’t working in my business, Anne comes through with a shortlist of improvements one of which is always sure to work. I’ve worked with Anne for my own businesses, GlobalWoman® and Your Online Business Agency, as well as for my clients. Her work with campaigns on social media has produced great results for minimal investment. I can always rely on Anne to come through. Thank you Anne.  

Yamini Toohney from GlobalWoman

Anne has worked with me now for a few years and knows my business better than I do!  In fact she makes the perfect partnership where I can focus on my passion and she takes care of the ‘stuff’ I don’t like or understand.  She’s smart, she’s savvy and she’s highly efficient and that makes her the perfect partner to brainstorm ideas to meet my business objectives. She takes my ideas and breaks them down into bite size pieces and then goes off and executes them.  Its brilliant! She totally gets the challenges of small, growing businesses and provides excellent, affordable, and achievable strategies that align with my short term goals and long term mission.  Together we have grown my mailing list considerably, developed numerous opt-ins, hosted live webinars, created my first online ecourse and has held my hand with both launches that generated almost $10k. Whatever you ask of Anne…she can deliver…and then some. 

Sharon Selby from Beat The Treats

Working with Anne is like having your own personal genie in a bottle – all you have to do is ask for what you want and she will magically make it happen! She never ceases to amaze me with her ability to get things done fast and efficiently, and always with a smile! As a sole business owner I used to easily get weighed down with my workload, but having Anne to turn to has taken away an enormous amount of stress in my business and helped me achieve so much more than I ever could myself. If you are looking for someone to outsource to, someone that will be an invaluable asset to both you and your business, who will go above and beyond and is also super-fun to work with, then hire Anne – you won’t look back! 

Fi Mims from Fi Mims Photography

Anne you have lifted an enormous weight off my shoulders. You have made it effortless to get tasks done I was struggling with that were holding me back from achieving my business goals. You got everything I needed done perfectly. In fact, it exceeded my expectations. Your work seamlessly integrates with my overall branding increasing the professional presentation of my business. I can’t thank you enough! 

Nicole Dennis from Go Justin & Nicole

Anne Clark can be summed up in one word – AMAZING! She is super responsive, quick to complete tasks, always on the ball and so easy to work with. As small business owners know, you can easily get caught up spending a lot of time on things you don’t love instead of working on what you do love. Luckily, Anne is fabulous at taking away all the tasks that don’t light you up, leaving you with more time to focus on your clients, services and making money. She has been such a valuable help to me when I’ve really needed it and I truly appreciate all of her wonderful help. She is a true professional and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a virtual assistance service. Jade McKenzie from Eventhead

Wow – where do I start? Oh my gosh – what can is say? “Anne is my angel”. When Anne entered into my life, it was a blessing. Anne is the most competent, creative, empathic, passionate, champion, supporter, efficient and strategic. There are not enough adjectives to describe Anne. Anne is amazing. I am immensely grateful to Anne. She is a problem solver. She is prompt and no fuss. She is trustworthy, confidant and confident. She just knows what to do. She has an immense range of skills which enhance me and my business. Anne is the asset to have in your business if you want to prosper and reach the next level. Anne goes beyond and above any expectations. She gets it. I’m a solopreneur and I find Anne is my magic elixir daily. A heartfelt thank you to you, Anne. xx  Maria Davis from Maria Heals

I love that it is just one less thing to think about. As a business owner of a growing business it is nice to have the support of a trusted and experienced professional handling this part of my business. You are doing a fantastic job – thank you! Amanda Jesnoewski from Velocity Media + Communication

Anne has been responsible for assisting me with my social media and has saved me countless hours, allowing me to concentrate on more important tasks and my business. I was also thrilled to discover that Anne is extremely creative and I rely on her for input on the visual marketing strategy for my business. She’s a great asset to both my businesses! Casey Lightbody from The Quiet Collective

I highly recommend Anne. Ease of having this function done, allowing me to work more on my business and not spend time on social media & getting ‘side tracked’!” “Anne is a pleasure to work with who is very good at what she does. I wasn’t using Facebook as much as I should, she’s not only made this easier for me but given me some great ideas and more confidence in using it myself.  Kate Barnes from Kate Barnes Health Coach

I like that I can give brief directions about what I want covered and know that you have the creative ability to produce really high quality social media posts that are on brand including gorgeous images. I really love seeing it all on a spreadsheet that I can review and edit before it goes live. Most of all I love knowing that if I get busy or sick that my social media is still ticking over. Kathryn Hocking from Kathryn Hocking

Anne is a very knowledgeable Mailchimp consultant. She helped me to sort out my mailing list in no time and helped me to develop a more streamlined workflow. Thank you so much!!!

Andrea S from Brave Therapy

I can’t speak highly enough of Anne! I live in New Zealand so wasn’t sure if she could help me, but she has been amazing! She has been very patient throughout the process, and has done an incredible job of fulfilling my brief. She has provided more help than I could have dreamed. Thank you so very much Anne!
