Thank you for your request for Virtual Assistance.
Thank you for sending us your Job Request which is now on its way to our office. Very soon you should hear from around 3-6 Virtual Assistants who meet your requirements, possibly more. This is so you are given choices. Each VA is an independent contractor and sets their own rates. So they may vary depending on their experience and background, and also their location (cost of living and currency).
Feel free to discuss your needs with them and make a decision as to whom you think you would work with best.
If you have any queries feel free to contact our office and we will get back to you very soon.
Remember, we are as close to you as your computer – the work you require to be carried out may not need someone who is down the street, but instead someone who is currently in front of their computer! In which case all you need to do is search for the particular skill or software needed and contact members who come up in the list.
Tips for working with a Virtual Assistant (VA)
- Be clear about your expectations at the beginning of your project to avoid misunderstandings.
- Understand that the VA is not someone you are going to see every day and is not an employee but instead a business owner who will view your business in a different perspective – they should be seen as a business partner.
- VAs do not need to be micromanaged – you’re paying for someone who doesn’t require a lot of supervision and who has experience on their side.
- VAs are self-employed business operators, not employees. They will let you know what their rates are and you can discuss this with them.
- VAs are not sales people so do not expect them to generate sales for you. They are there to assist with aspects of your business that prevent you from generating more income.
- You can find out more about working with VAs at our blog Virtual Assistant – THE Blog
