Recruitment (finding a VA)
How much to pay your virtual assistant in the Philippines?
Depending on your needs, you will hire either part-time (20 hours per week) or full time (40 hours per week).
Generally speaking, most employers pay part-time virtual workers around 50% of the full-time rate.
Full-time rate is generally 8 hours per day 5 days per week (Mon-Fri). Workers can be adaptable to time zone differences as it’s part and parcel of an online job.
Paying your Filipipo VA or virtual staff by the hour is optional but generally not advisable.
You can, however, use our TIME TRACKING TOOL.
Remember, just be sure to make all expectations clear from the start.
If you do want to use time tracking software, you don’t have to. I rarely use it with any of my staff, It does, however, have its place under certain circumstances.
Another option outside of the part and full-time work is to pay them based an output or per-project basis.

Filipino VA’s are great. They really do provide, possibly the best ROI you can get when it comes to cost vs skills and results.
But here’s where many entrepreneurs and business owners go wrong. Treat your virtual assistant or remote staff like you would treat a local domestic employee… with respect!
