There are entire books written on how to become a virtual assistant, so this job is definitely worthy of more research. My advice: Focus on one niche (I just hired Lisa Morosky of VA for Bloggers, for instance.) Also, reach out to potential customers directly and let them know what you can do for them instead of hitting up freelance web sites. Finally, you may want to consider resources such as AssistU, which provides training for up-and-coming virtual assistants.
Wow thank you so much for this article, I am a single father with 3 under 4 and I’ve been trying to find something for months along the lines of what you have posted here I truly understand the hardship single mothers in general face because I myself am going through that hardship right now. I think you may have just helped better mine and my children’s lives with this and I am eternally greatful.
Hi , thanks for the tipsI never thought to use a number of those Jobs. I find that the best way for me is to complete surveys. I have been doing this for about a year now for about an hour each day and i’m making about $350-$500 each month, which isn’t bad considering it’s just meant to be some additional income. I find that this site works the best for those of you that are interested paymentforsurveys.blogspot.com
Paidsocial Media Jobs is paying, but only if you can make money from it. But, it is not easy to work with them like they have shown. There are many members who are offering same job due to which you have to do high competition in order to get the job and get paid. More than that, there is always another member who are offering much more less price than yours for same job which will make you run out of the job. Most of time you will even not earn money that you need to invest to work with this company. There are many people who have lost their investment in this company. More than that, they are using fake Fox News for marketing their site, but that clip has nothing to endorses “Paid Social Media Jobs”. So, providing fake marketing material is not a good sign for any company. On top of that, even no one knows who is the real owner of Paid Social Media Jobs which added another red flag to the company. So, although it is paying, we don't recommend it. Now it is upto you either you want to work with it or not.
How much will you make? I think my best month with Google AdSense was almost $5,000 over the last ten years. That amazing month blew my mind since it was actually near the beginning of my blogging journey. When you go from making zero to $5,000 in a month, that will rock your world. For me, it also got me even more excited because I knew there were other ways to monetize.
