Read What Some of Our Clients Had to Say
“Erin's virtual team is amazing. They are always striving to make every effort to bring so much more to the plate than other companies. The logo I had done was finished within a half hour, and looked sharp! The social networking was a snap, they even helped me write some of my tweets. Erin is an incredible energetic, intelligent and remarkable business woman. Always on top of things and helping us all reach the heights we are aiming to reach."
“A few weeks after launching my blog, I knew it was time to get my email newsletter going. I was on a tight budget, but knew I didn’t want to use a standard template. So I asked my project manager if she thought they’d be able to do it. They were. Erin's team knew exactly what questions to ask & nailed the design on her first attempt. It’s exactly what I’d hoped for… can’t wait for the next project!”
“Erin, over the last year I’ve tried and failed three times to deliver a vision. In addition to the $$ I’ve spent, I don’t want to count the hours invested over these last twelve months as I struggled to deliver on the vision. Then, after days of searching online as I rallied myself for one last attempt, I found you. And now, finally, the vision is becoming reality. Your team is fantastic. I sincerely appreciate everything she’s doing to work with me and I couldn’t be more excited to re-launch the website tomorrow. Thank you for the company you’ve built, the leadership you offer and your taste in the people you select to work for you.”
“Wow!!! I haven’t even had a chance to finish up revamping the copy and I already received TWO submissions for strategy sessions from the new site and BOTH found me from google searches!! That NEVER ever ever happened to me before. People would sometimes submit for sessions, but they’d always found me some other “warmer” way…. (networking, article, media mention, etc…)”
"It was Summer 2008 when Erin Blaskie first came into my life through a little Social Media thing called Facebook. She had a campaign going about getting “re-instated” because they thought she was not the real Erin Blaskie!
Without even knowing her, I fell in love with the authenticity of her campaign and her innovative videos showing the big wigs at Facebook that she was who she said she was. It was love at First Facebook Sight. I quickly understood Erin’s passion for helping business owners claim their place in the internet marketing world and so our professional relationship started.
Erin’s love and passion for internet marketing shows in everything she does, and her resilient conquest for futuristic ideas beyond what’s possible, it’s absolutely amazing. “Erin can make chocolate out of lemons.” – Her deep desire to help clients achieve goals beyond what appears probable is monumental, and her vast global knowledge of what’s next in the internet marketing world is something to be cherished and respected by those who know and love her.
Erin and her virtual team has been helping me grow since 2008 to include the re-vamping and re-branding of my website, and full support from design to search engine optimization to social media multi-tasking and the list continues to grow.
Want to put a passionate and profitable internet marketing spin into your business life? Have Erin Blaskie by your side!"
How the Service Works
Working with a Virtual Team Shouldn't Cause You Extra Work, It Should Simplify Things
Before you review the pricing, it's important for you to know how the service works to fully understand what value you receive for your investment.
When you engage with our virtual team, you will be assigned one primary person to work with you based on your needs. For example: if you need support with your virtual events, you will work with someone on our team who has that expertise. If and when another need arises, a copywriter or graphic designer for example, another person on our team with the required speciality will join your project to offer services in that area. However, on a regular, on-going basis, you will work with the same person.
At the same time, you will also be working closely with me, Erin. I will be ensuring that your project is organized from the beginning and that the outcomes are laid out. Throughout your work with us, I will also help you with the higher level strategy for your business, I will brainstorm new product/service ideas with you and I will ensure that the team is doing what they should be doing.
While the team is implementing and executing and I am strategizing and planning, we also have one other layer in our business - the project manager. To ensure that deadlines are met, messages aren't missed and to-dos are documented appropriately, you'll also have a project manager on your account whose sole responsibility is to make sure that your business activities are on track.
Since there are multiple people working on your account, we have one central time tracking tool. Each person who works on your project bills their time, to the minute, for the work that they are doing on your project. That means that you are only paying for the exact time that is spent on your project - no breaks, no training time and definitely no other distractions. All time is accumulated onto your account and is billed at the same rate - regardless of the service.
Every two weeks, on the 15th and last day of the month, you'll receive a time report from us with an update as to where you are at with hours. If you are over, you will be billed for the surplus. If you are under, the time will be moved to the next time period to be used then. As the packages we have are an auto-billed package, we will review, quarterly, how much time is being used each month to see if any adjustments to your pre-paid amount need to be made. However, you can also adjust them yourself at any time.

About Erin Blaskie & Team
Learn the History of the Company & Meet Our Founder
Erin Blaskie founded the company in 2004. Formerly known as BSETC (an acronym for Business Services, ETC), the company is now under the Erin Blaskie brand.
BSETC was conceived well before its actual inception date. At the age of 6 years old, Erin Blaskie (CEO and founder of BSETC) could be found playing “office” with her sister, using the family’s Commodore 64 as her office hub. Erin was always the boss and her sister would be subjected to doing countless of hours of mindless paperwork.
When Erin was sixteen years old, she had a vision of working independently for businesses in her local town performing administrative tasks like formatting documents. It seemed like a perfect potential summer job until she was offered a job in the local ice cream store. At 16, ice cream trumped office work.
With two attempts at creating an office environment in her belt of experience, Erin headed to college and studied Business Administration as well as Advertising and Public Relations. Once Erin was finished her program, she was hired by a private college in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada to teach their business admin program.
During the program, she was constantly faced with the topic of business administration and helped numerous students start the job search process after they were finished their program. While doing so, she realized that there had to be a way for her students to help people independently as well — without waiting to be hired.
After an Internet search revealed the concept of the “virtual assistant”, Erin herself fell in love. It was precisely the same idea that she had when she was 16 but this concept was much more current and leveraged the power of the Internet. Two weeks and a website later, Erin had her first paying client and was figuring out ways to find more.
Six months after opening BSETC’s virtual doors, Erin had enough clients to quit her full-time teaching gig and was able to jump into entrepreneurship full-time. The business grew very quickly and attracted clients across Canada, the US and other parts of the world. As the business grew, Erin consistently found ways to mould the company into providing exactly what her clients needed, when they needed it.
Seven years (and counting!) later, BSETC now provides virtual services to companies across the globe. Having serviced over 300 entrepreneurs world-wide, the 20+ person team has been able to understand how online business works and why entrepreneurship is such an awesome spirit to support.
