This varies amongst virtual assistants and will depend on the skill and complexity of the task. A general guide is that it can cost anywhere between $25 to $95 per hour. If you are looking at using a virtual assistant for general admin work the hourly rate will be around $25 up to $35 per hour.
Don’t be focused on the hourly rate when it comes to looking at using a virtual assistant, look at the whole picture:
- What task/s am I needing help with?
- By not doing them myself how much time & money am I saving?
- By using a virtual assistant I’m not paying her taxes, super, holiday & sick leave, so I am saving money compared to if I employ someone.
- When using a virtual assistant I only pay for the time spent on my task/s.
If you do have a budget to work to, discuss this with your VA, she will work within your budget to get the tasks completed.
It is important to remember a VA is invested in the success of her clients. She knows that if her clients’ business succeeds, so too does her business.
A VA is dedicated to helping you grow the business you desire.
