Featured on NBC's Today Show and named the Number Two Website of the Year by Time magazine in 2007, AskSunday helps busy bees produce their daily honey quota. AskSunday's Dedicated Assistant Plan affords customers aid from an individually assigned personal assistant, who will be at your disposal for the course of one month. After discussing needs with an assistant, customers will be able to submit requests at any time. Possible tasks include data entry, Internet research, phone calls to clients and vendors, scheduling, uploading photos, updating a Twitter account, booking appointments, writing emails, and providing synopses of Grandma’s holiday cards. Assistants report back on the findings and results for each task, and all jobs are handled virtually (via phone, email, or instant messaging) amid the soothing silence of cyberspace.
Assistants will be at the ready from 7:30 a.m. EST to 4:30 p.m. EST; during all other times, someone else will step in to do clients’ bidding. Those with urgent tasks can call in or write "ASAP" on their requests to get the ball rolling within four hours. The packages include 10 or 20 hours, with each additional hour costing $14 for the 10-hour plan and $12 for the 20-hour plan. Clients do not have to continue their memberships after one month and won’t be automatically re-billed; AskSunday will automatically cancel the service 30 days after enrollment.
