A few months ago, I started working as a Virtual Assistant for a popular personal finance blog.
Being a Virtual Assistant has several benefits, such as learning how a thriving business works, being able to work from home, and setting up your hours and pay.
Not only that, you can choose between being a part-time or full-time Virtual Assistant, leaving you time for other things in your life if you aren’t ready for the full commitment of a full-time job yet.
It’s not easy work and requires being able to follow direction and learn new things on your own – but it ‘s so worth it! I love my job.
The demand for Virtual Assistants is rising for small and large businesses since many jobs are going online.
At the end of this post, I’ll be sharing a completely free way to get started as a virtual assistant.
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant provides administrative help for a business online, similar to what a secretary or assistant would do in person at a company.
Most Virtual Assistants are self-employed and work from home, generally creating their schedule.
What kind of tasks is a Virtual Assistant in charge of?
Virtual Assistants are in charge of a wide range of tasks.
Some of these tasks include:
- Email management
- Graphic design (these could be social media images, digital product covers, etc.)
- Social media management
- Writing articles
My Virtual Assistant jobs specifically consist of:
- Creating social media images
- Writing recipe posts
- Social media management
- Email management
- Managing Facebook groups
- Scheduling articles on social media
- and more.
Benefits of being a Virtual Assistant:
- Learning how successful businesses run their business
- Learn strategies and tips from the pros
- Make a great income all from home
- Be apart of a thriving business and contributing to the success
How much can a Virtual Assistant make?
On the low end, a Virtual Assistant can expect to make $10-$20.
However, the more experience you have, the better.
An experienced Virtual Assistant with plenty of skills can make between $50-$100+ per hour.
Figuring out how much you should charge as a Virtual Assistant can be tricky.
If you’ve never been an assistant of any kind and have NO skills, you’re probably going to find it tough to land a job.
However, if you have experience being an assistant in the past, whether it be in-person or virtually, that’s a major plus, and you can charge a lot more because of that.
Many students of $10K VA see great results with landing jobs during or right after completing the course.
Students of $10k VA are saying:
“Working with Kayla was one of the best decisions I could have made when it comes to my business. My first month of being a solopreneur, I only made $283. Now, I’m on track to earn $10,000/month by the end of the year.” – Kim Studdard, $10K VA Student
“I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in digital secretarial or office work. It was a great investment! The pitch cheat sheet in this course has been a life saver for me.” -Makayla Pewthers, MJP Virtual Assistant
What can I do to make sure I get hired?
Becoming a Virtual Assistant is hard work, but my friend Kayla (who makes over $10k a month from virtual assisting) created $10K VA to teach people exactly how to do it.
Here are the benefits of $10K VA:
- Learn exactly how to land your first client
- Get email swipe files for landing potential clients
- How to set prices
- Create a system for efficiency
- & a lot more!
