How You Can Make Money as a Virtual Assistant

Many times being frugal just isn’t enough and so you find yourself wondering how you could make some extra money each month.  Let’s face it.  Frugality only stretches so far and if you’ve done everything you can to bring expenses down you may need some extra help.  I call any work from home businesses, ‘side hustles’.

While many people want only part-time work you can also make a full-time job out of being a virtual assistant.  The amount of hours and clients you want to take on is entirely up to you.

So what is a virtual assistant?  It’s someone who can do their work from anywhere in the world.  All it takes is a computer, a phone, small office equipment, and a few skills.  First I should explain that not all virtual assistants offer the same services.  Should you decide to become a virtual assistant you can offer the skills you are interested in and ones in which you have some experience.  There are over 50 services a virtual assistant can offer but below are some of the more popular ones to give you an idea of how simple this business can be.

Launching your VA Biz can be overwhelming and confusing.

But it doesn’t need to be!

Email Management – Keep a client’s inbox cleaned out and answer the ones you have training in.

Customer Service – Follow up with customers and send thank you card, etc.

Research – Do research online for blog post and webinars.  Gather statistics, etc.

Slide Presentations – Make powerpoint slides for webinars and videos.
