Making money as a virtual assistant

In the days of online business, the position of a virtual assistant has got created. More than anything else, it was the need of the hour to have a position like a virtual assistant.


Many people are doing the jobs of a virtual assistant today. The age of internet has made it possible.

What is a virtual assistant
As the term ‘virtual’ in ‘virtual assistant’ suggests, it is a person who offers his or her professional services. However, a virtual assistant is not necessarily present with his employer. Why that, such is the work profile of a virtual assistant that the employer may not even have the need to ever see his employee.

A virtual assistant might work from a far off place for his employer. He gives his professional assistance and might even need to oversee the work of the other staff members.

More about a virtual assistant
The first thing I would like to speak – just out of curiosity is about the home phone. Some people consider the job of a virtual assistant to be cut short without the presence of a home phone. Does it make any difference if one such exists or does not exist? I really don’t know and find it odd when people stress on having a fixed wire phone.
But as far as the question of the fixed line phone goes, it could be a mindset that such phones have better internet speed rather than wireless modems. I would like to quote my own example here. I worked with my previous client where we needed to work with a virtual assistant. She was a lady and did not have a home phone.

But the going was too great. She was there before me. I worked there for a year and half and left the work due to other engagements. It has been almost the same duration that I quit that job and she is still there. It has been a marathon work with a single employee. Just goes on to show that there is no need of a home phone. She probably used a wireless internet connection.

I do not see any reason to have the need of a home phone – a phone line to have such a job. If you have problems connecting without wire, then I think you have to go on with the wireless connection.

How much can you earn as a virtual assistant
Now after reading all this information, you will be curious to know how much you can earn. There is actually not limit to what type of job you do so no limit how much you can earn. If you are in the field of designing or web development and anything that is creative, there is a large scope of earning opportunity.

Virtual assistants are required in almost all the online businesses today. They make available around three to five hours of time to the owner who can use them more professionally. The only downside is you cannot meet the person, in person. But who cares, if your job is being done?

Beautifully written. Also it is very helpful to them who wish to work from their home. If you could provide few links of such type of companies who recruit the virtual assistants, it could be more helpful. Could you please provide your previous company's link?
