Hiring a VA for an ongoing relationship is totally different to hiring freelancers. This video will explain the important and distinct difference that may well be a game changer in the whole way you look at the process of outsourcing.

How much does a virtual assistant cost? 

The average Philippines VA will cost between $300-$500 a month, some of course are slightly less, and some significantly more. Factors like skill level, experience, and so forth play a big part in it.

Thing to remember:

  • The average store clerk in the Philippines is paid around 8,000 peso per month ($160-$170). This does not mean that virtual assistants are paid this amount.
