Homepreneur Idea: Become a Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant is simply an assistant that works from a remote location. All the work is done via the telephone and internet so there is never a need for the VA to meet with the client in person. This means that it is possible to take on clients from around the globe if you can attract them of course!
Typical services covered by virtual assistants include but are not limited to;
- Bookkeeping or Accounting
- Website Maintenance
- Call Management
- Word Processing
- Internet Research
- Sales and Marketing Support
Virtual assistants charge an hourly rate that is dependent on the services they offer as well as their level of experience. Rates can range anywhere from $20 to $60 an hour.
