Terms and Conditions of Service
808 Talent Source, LLC
Effective March 1, 2023
This is an Agreement (“Agreement”) made between 808 Talent Source, LLC, which has offices at 1317 Edgewater Dr. Ste.458, Orlando, FL 32804, (called “We,” “Us,” “Our,” and “Company” in this Agreement) and the person(s) entering into this Agreement (called “You,” “Your,” and “Client” in this Agreement).
STATEMENT OF WORK
This agreement outlines the terms of our arrangement for the provision of our employees to supplement your workforce. Pursuant to your request, we will assign an individual known as the "Assigned Virtual Assistant" to work for you on a contractual basis. The Assigned Virtual Assistant will work under your direction, control, and supervision and will be available to perform services for you as you may from time to time request.
The Assigned Virtual Assistant will provide up to 20 hours of service per month with the advertised plan through Urban Awareness USA and will meet with you once per month for a 30-minute Zoom meeting. This meeting time will be deducted from the 20-hour allocation, and any additional time spent in the meeting will also be deducted accordingly. Unused hours will not be rolled over into the following month. You are responsible for ensuring that you provide your Assigned Virtual Assistant with sufficient work to utilize the allotted hours each month.
Your Assigned Virtual Assistant will notify you when you are nearing the maximum hours allocated for the month. Should you require additional hours beyond the 20-hour allocation, you may purchase them in packages of 5 hours.
Manage Board Communication: Board meetings require a lot of work to make them happen. You'll need prep packets, and agenda, including any presentations and material presented during meetings (it's important that board members are reminded about these).
Manage Volunteers: Without the suitable systems in place, your volunteers will take their experience elsewhere - which means lost opportunities for you! Your VA can manage all aspects, from recruitment through tracking hours to appreciation initiatives, so that every individual feels honored by what they do on behalf of a nonprofit organization or donation-based charity.
Organize Everything: Your VA can make sure all of the logistics for your company are in order, from tightening up operations and keeping things running smoothly without sacrificing quality. You'll have a branded team that's ready with what you need when it comes time to execute marketing materials or customer service via email correspondence.
Your virtual assistant will take care of every step, so nothing falls through--from making sure print collateral is available when needed but not overcrowded outlandishly as most companies do; to organizing Google Drive folders nicely into categories based on industry type.
Create Standard Operating Procedures (SOP): Your VA can help to create systems and processes that will improve overall efficiency.
Newsletter Creation: Keeping your audience engaged and informed is essential for any business or organization, but crafting and distributing newsletters can be a time-consuming task. Your VA can take on this responsibility, creating compelling content, designing newsletters that match your brand, and ensuring that they are distributed to your audience on time. With a well-managed newsletter system in place, your subscribers will stay informed and engaged, leading to stronger relationships with your audience and increased business or support for your cause. Let your VA handle the newsletter, so you can focus on other critical aspects of your business or organization.
Data Entry and Management: This service involves accurately entering data into a database or spreadsheet and organizing it in a way that makes it easy to analyze and use. The virtual administrative assistant will ensure that all data is accurate and up-to-date and will help you make informed decisions based on the data.
Online Research and Reporting: This service involves conducting research online and presenting the findings in a clear and concise report. The virtual administrative assistant will help you gather the information you need to make informed decisions and stay up-to-date on trends and developments in your industry.
Your Virtual Assistant (VA) can manage all of your communication channels to make you look ever-present and engaged, which customers and supporters want and need to stay connected to your mission.
Manage Communication Calendar: A communication calendar is an essential tool for any business, but it's even more crucial when using email marketing and social media. Keeping track of these messages can make the process much easier by ensuring fewer gaps in your company’s communication strategy!
With a VA monitoring all posts on behalf of their boss or client-owner (depending on if they have one), this person has everything at hand just like they need to execute effectively without needing too much downtime because then what would happen?
Manage Email Marketing: Your VA can manage all your mailing list needs, from keeping it updated and properly tagged to providing an analytics report. They'll even let you know what messages are working best for other companies in similar industries!
No matter which CRM system you're using, your virtual assistant has got this covered. Keep things running smoothly by outsourcing the work of managing customer data.
Post Blog Articles: You don't want to spend hours painstakingly typing up your next blog post only for it not to live the way you envisioned. With VAs, this is no longer an issue! Leave it in their capable hands, and they can find images that will help bring out exactly how great the reading or idea was on paper - then share it across social media like wildfire. Your VA can create one (1) 500-800 blog optimized for SEO monthly.
Create Landing Pages: A landing page first impression your company makes on people when promoting a particular program or service or partaking in lead generation, so it's important to have an aesthetically pleasing landing page. With our help, you can ensure that all content and images will be impressive!
Manage Social Media Accounts: Many VAs have significant social media experience, having launched campaigns using Facebook Ads themselves! Your team members will design quality images for each audience with the help of your VA. They will strategize together to get the most out of our channels by following metrics that reflect what matters most - you want people spending time commenting or engaging because this is how we build relationships online rather than simply broadcasting information to them.
Support Media Relations: Your VA can research reporters and distribute press releases to relevant publications on behalf of you or your company's brand image. Additionally, they'll follow up with any contacts made through these announcements to not have lost opportunities for new business!
Manage Print Collateral: Your VA can maintain brand and message uniformity. Your virtual assistant will help keep the readability of fonts and ensure that everything matches up visually with other areas on the screen, so it looks cohesive when printing or putting together presentations/mailings, jackets, etc.
Respond to Emails: Your VA will make sure that everything in your inbox gets responded to! They can organize it by date or category if necessary so nothing falls through the cracks.
The best part? You only need one person for all these tasks instead of being overwhelmed when balancing work life and handling other responsibilities.
Your Virtual Assistant (VA) can manage your fundraising plan, and help with execution, calendar management, campaigns, and appeals.
Donor Outreach: When raising funds for your organization, your virtual assistant can organize your virtual and face-to-face meetings and group meetings with prior donors and potential donors.
Prepare Appeal Letters: After you write and design your digital and snail mail appeal, turn it over to your VA. Depending on the number of letters going out, they can use a mail house or prepare the letter in-house.
Manage Grants Calendar: When you are in the market to apply for grants consistently, you want to keep track of what you have applied for, what’s coming up, what was awarded, what wasn’t, and when reports should be submitted. Your VA can do all of the aforementioned as research possible grant opportunities for you.
Organize Grant Documents: When submitting grant proposals, you have to create many charts, graphs, and narratives. Your VA can help you put these things together in a system to make them easy for you and your team to locate when needed. No, your VA cannot write grants for you because grant writing is a specialized skill set.
Event Assistance: When planning events, you need support you can count on to execute the plan flawlessly. A VA can help bring the committee together, confirm a location, source caterers and decorators, set up your landing page, promote on social media, manage registration, order gifts, send out invitations to individuals and businesses, provide support to attendees and speakers, and a few other things.
Fill Out Grant Applications: Your Virtual Assistant can assist you with filling out grant applications based on the information that you provide them. Please note that they are not Grant Writers and cannot complete grant proposals or respond to RFPs on your organization’s behalf.
Your Virtual Assistant (VA) is an expert in Gift management. They will be able to help you handle sensitive donor information like donations, sponsorships, and more! We make sure that our SIVAs understand confidentiality, and we have them sign an agreement to keep ALL client information confidential.
Track Donations: Data entry can be a tough job, but it's not impossible. What good is all of this information if you don't have someone who can enter it correctly? With data-entry services like those offered by VAs for nonprofits or businesses with their own CRMs - now there are no more worries! Your VA will keep everything up to date in your company files so that nothing gets lost along the way.
Thank Donors: The sooner you acknowledge a donation, the more likely your recipient will receive an acknowledgment. It's also worth noting how writing thank-you letters can be difficult for those who lack experience in this field--but don't worry! Your VA might take care of all the details, so just sit back and watch as they write up something spectacular.
The time between receiving any type of gift or contribution to our organization (like cash donations) and sending out another communication acknowledging their generosity narrows significantly once we start using professional letter writers on behalf of the organization. They can do almost everything related: send mailings; prepare for follow-ups by phone/email if needed.
Welcome New Donors: New donors need to be sent a welcome email, package, or letter to make them feel appreciated. You can record a video greeting, written communication, or welcome packet; your VA will be able to set up your back office for automatic dissemination.
Maximize CRM: Your VA can help you set up a system that will allow for the tracking and thanking of donors and implement improvements in processes. Your VA might suggest adding donation forms on your site or automating gift data with CRM, so it's sent automatically upon receipt.
The prospective client ("Client") shall provide an upfront deposit in the amount of $100.00 USD (the "Deposit") to secure a preliminary consultation with 808 Talent Source, LLC ("Company"). The purpose of this consultation is for the Company to ascertain its capability to fulfill the Client's outsourcing requirements.
Should the Company determine its ability and willingness to provide the desired services to the Client, the Deposit will be allocated toward the Client's account setup fee, which is commensurate with the Deposit amount. This is a singular fee that will not be imposed again for the same business endeavor.
In the event the Company concludes it cannot accommodate the Client's outsourcing needs, the Deposit shall be refunded to the Client in full. This refund will be initiated immediately following the conclusion of the initial consultation.
The Client's recurring monthly payments ("Monthly Payments") will be automatically debited from the Client's credit or debit card on file ("Payment Method") on a monthly basis, within the period spanning the 25th to the 30th of each month (the "Payment Period").
In the event that the Monthly Payment transaction is declined for any reason, the Company's provision of services for the subsequent month will be suspended until all outstanding balances on the Client's account are fully reconciled. The Company reserves the right to withhold or discontinue services until the Client's account is returned to good standing.

This meeting will be via Zoom. You agree that Your Assigned Virtual Assistant will start working on tasks for you no more than two (2) business days after this initial meeting.
