How remote personal assistants give people their hours back

Magic’s remote personal assistant service is one of the few life upgrades you can pay for that actually works.

In 2015, Magic began with a simple idea with endless potential: one phone number you could text 24/7 with any request. Just send us a message in our app and our virtual assistants will get it done. (Seriously, anything as long as it’s not illegal. Just ask us.) Our assistants respond in seconds, so there’s no need to wait for the next business day to get a reply. We’ll start working on your task ASAP. Other companies were quick to copy the concept afterwards, with media giant WIRED even doing a stress test to see how far our service can go.

Bigger, bolder requests

Over the years, we’ve seen a shift from individual requests to more business-oriented tasks: from simple food deliveries to suddenly, “Can you help us generate leads for our business?” Requests that snowballed into helping organizations smoothen operations, focus on clients, even raise millions of dollars in seed funding.

Because of this shift, Magic has grown to offer Magic for Business, which lets you offload time-consuming work to a team of assistants. Magic makes business better by giving people more time to focus on bigger work at hand rather than spending hours on repetitive, administrative tasks. And with remote workplaces becoming more normal nowadays, we’ve also grown to create Magic Dedicated Assistants—a service that screens, hires, and trains specific staff businesses need.

“It was outstanding having Magic handle as much of my day as possible.”

—Reed Mayhew
