Virtual assistant (VA) – the complete course
A lot of people don’t know this: with the rise of the digital economy, mindboggling numbers of solepreneurs and small business people around the world are opting to hire a virtual assistant (VA) to help them run their businesses.
First things first: What exactly does a VA job involve and why is the demand for VAs on the rise?
Well, a VA is like a digital equivalent of conventional PAs (personal assistant) or online secretaries..
In a nutshell, a VA is the unsung hero who keeps the wheels of digital businesses turning- you handle some of the most vital tasks in today’s business world: accounting, bookkeeping, managing emails, marketing management, social media management, and more.
So, why are small entrepreneurs and companies scrambling to add VAs to their teams?
Well, money is the answer…
Sure, some turn to independent virtual assistants for productivity reasons but the biggest motivation is reducing the cost of running their business- outsourcing administrative tasks is undeniably way cheaper than maintaining full-time office assistants.
That said, you can still earn a respectable figure as a freelance VA- the pay per hour on platforms such as Upwork ranges between $5 to $40 and top notch VAs consistently take home over $1000 per month.
Here are other beautiful bits:
- VAs don’t have to commute to work (no more insane traffic jams!).
- There are no annoying bosses breathing down your neck.
- You work when you want (well, almost..).
- You can work in your pajamas (seriously!).
To mention but a few..
