Virtual Assistant jobs come in many shapes and sizes.
The range of work that virtual assistants do is wide and varied as VAs come from different backgrounds with different talents and skills. There are several online job sites where you can pick up some work.
Don’t be put off by the number of overseas Virtual Assistants offering very low rates. I can assure you that very few provide the same quality of service that Australian Virtual Assistants do.
If you follow our process, you will have the confidence to go after virtual assistant jobs that will pay you what you are worth. Initially you will be tempted to compete on price and that's ok for 1 or 2 jobs. Eventually you will realise that the clients you want to work with buy on quality and value not on price.

One of our services, where we help you find your ideal clients is our online VA Directory and Search called VA Placements.
Clients visit this directory for only one thing - to find their perfect virtual assistant. When clients visit they can find your listing that is more like a mini-website. Clients can contact you directly and also visit your website and social media profiles (depending on the level of listing you choose).
Alternatively, clients can ask us to do a free match for them. This is what happens next:
The automated system sends you an email asking if you want to accept the lead.
If you accept the lead, the system will send you an email with the clients details.
You call or email the client directly and talk terms and conditions. Our system will only send between 3-5 VA leads to the client.
You are competing against the world and chances are the client will receive hundreds of applications. In this situation, the client can take a long time to decide on who to appoint the work to. They might even give up and walk away. In addition, they find it difficult to compare quotes as they will get too many variations. The clients also depend on reading your reviews and ratings and if you have just one bad rating it can seriously affect your ability to get more work on these sites.
