I see, in various places, people asking if they should join freelancing sites like Upwork, Freelancer and others.
I can’t answer for all freelancers, but I can answer for those who call themselves Virtual Assistants and the answer I have is this:
Joining a VA Network or Directory means paying an annual or monthly membership fee. Generally engaging one regular client through these avenues more than covers your membership fee each year, anything else is a bonus. And the good news is, you don’t have to pay a commission fee for the work you receive. Everything you earn is yours.
So, in my way of thinking, belonging to a VA Network or Directory makes sense, don’t you think?
