Benefits Of Working As A VA

Several people across the world are turning to Virtual Assistants (VA) to handle a myriad of projects that they can’t handle themselves. VA specific tasks include installing Wordpress blogs, writing content, making travel arrangements, conducting cold calling campaigns and more. There are countless benefits and advantages of being a virtual assistant and if you’re considering joining this incredible filed, you’re definitely in for a fun and exciting ride. In this article we will shed light on some of the benefits of being a virtual assistant:

Work from Home: One of the best advantages of working as a virtual assistant is that you can work from the comfort of your very own home. Wear your pjs all day and no one is going to care one bit. As long as you finish your assignments, that’s all that matter. Just imagine all the money you’ll save from not needing rented space and can also skip long commutes and boring conversations with annoying coworkers (who should be working instead of talking). Plus, you don’t have to deal with the prying eyes of your colleagues or bosses either.

Flexibility: Being a Virtual Assistant, you can enjoy flexibility and can work during the times and hours that are convenient to you. Prefer to work at night – no problem. Want to work in the early morning hours – no problem either. As a VA, you work on your own terms and conditions. Plus, you can pick and choose your projects so you only handle those projects you want to work and avoid others.

Sky High Income: There are many virtual assistants who are earning higher incomes due to their specialized skills. For instance, marketing assistants and social media marketing assistants typically make more than those who don’t specialize. Plus, since you’re not tied down to one employer, you can work for various clients and take on multiple projects. The more projects you take, the more you can earn.

Minimum start-up cost: The start-up cost for a virtual assistant is very low. There are no additional costs incurred, except a computer, printer, telephone or headset and a good internet connection that is owned by almost everyone. Your only reoccurring cost is electricity, internet and paper.

Scalable income: The best thing about being a virtual assistant is that you have the liberty to decide how much your skills are worth. Customers will either pay you or they won’t. Prior to setting your own pay, assistants generally relied on what their employers would give. Since you’re the boss, you set your price. Just remember to periodically conduct a market survey at regular intervals to learn the going rate for your specialty area to make sure you are receiving enough compensation for your unique skills.

Opportunity to serve big companies: Since a large number of reputed companies are hiring Virtual Assistants, it makes sense to go after the bigger clients. Not only are they well-known in the industry, they have the capital to pay you the amount you require. Plus, they look very good on a resume or CV.

You’re respected. As a VA, you become a useful addition to your client’s business. Your clients rely on you and need your services. You in, turn feel good by helping improve their businesses as well. In essence, it is a win-win situation. Always work diligently to develop a strong long-term relationship with your clients so they will continue to use your services for a long time.

These are some of the benefits of being a Virtual Assistant. It is the best way to chase your dreams by utilizing your skills and helping others with your service.
