What Does an Online Technology Assistant Do?

Hello there, I'm T.Marie Hilton, dedicated Online Technology Assistant. Ever wondered what exactly an online tech Virtual Assistant (VA) like me does?

I'm here to unravel the mystery and shed light on how I can empower your  business.

Connecting, Automating, and Running the Backend

When business owners say they want to hire a tech VA, they usually mean someone to help them connect, automate, and run the backend of their business. You see, most business owners, like you, are the creative visionaries and idea generators. You have the passion and the ideas but often find yourself frustrated and intimidated by all the necessary tech pieces needed to successfully run an a successful business.

The Vital Role of Technology

The tech piece is so crucial because it's how you generate leads, book clients, collect payments, and communicate with your customers. That's where a tech-based virtual assistant like me steps in. My role is to hook up or integrate various software programs in a tech stack and ensure they're working seamlessly, sending data to each other.

Simplifying the Complex

A good tech VA simplifies the complex tech landscape, making it simple and easy for online business owners to get their content, services, or products right into the hands of their audience. It should be a seamless process, allowing business owners to focus on what they do best.

Understanding the Tech Stack

Now, let's talk about the tech stack. Most business owners are working with a bundle of tech platforms to achieve their business goals. A tech stack is essentially the custom combination of tools, apps, and platforms that keep any online business running smoothly.

Components of an Online Tech Stack

An online tech stack for small business owners typically consists of some combination of the following elements:


  • Website and Blog: Your digital storefront and content hub.
  • Email Service Provider (ESP): Communicate effectively with your audience.
  • Payment Gateways & Processors: Securely collect payments online.
  • Digital Course Delivery: Share your knowledge and expertise.
  • E-commerce Solutions: Sell products or services online.
  • Calendar & Scheduling: Manage appointments efficiently.
  • Project Management Tools: Stay organized and on track.
  • Social Media Scheduling: Maintain a strong online presence.
  • Light Video Editing: Enhance your multimedia content.
  • Webinar Software: Engage with your audience in real-time.


Plus, integration tools like Zapier or IFTTT help all of these tools "talk" to each other seamlessly, automating processes and saving you time.

In a nutshell, as your Online Technology Assistant, I bridge the gap between your creative vision and the tech tools you need to bring it to life.

I simplify the complex, making sure your online business runs like a well-oiled machine.
