    Hey everybody. So this past month has been a train wreck for me. I have been on my laptop for hours trying to register hundreds of Web 2.0 accounts and I admit that it takes a lot of work. The downside of doing that is it's very and I mean VERY time consuming.

    So I was wondering, does anybody hire VA's?
    Would hiring VA's to do this type of work (registering a variety of web 2.0's on different platforms) work?
    Has anybody hired an VA to do this? If so, what was your experience?

    I have never hired an VA before, I'm not even sure where I could hire one so I'd appreciate if anybody could link me to a source. I'm going to need to hire a bunch for all of this work that I need done. Any additional advice is appreciated.

    Hire a VA is good, if they know what they're doing.
    There are some good ones out there and some not so good.

    Nothing worse when you see someone telling you how good they are at a task, to see them asking ' how do I do xyz ' in a different forum, and you see it's the task they're doing for you.

    Be prepared for a possible long search.
    I had 1 guy offer me 6 hours free to try him out, I didn't take him up on that, as I didn't have the work for him. I went back a little later for a small task and the cheeky knobber quoted me $10 an hour, despite a month earlier trying to sell his services to me at under $3 an hour.

    I found it difficult to find good VAs as well. But if you find someone good then of course its a great thing. Great way to offload some of your work at a reasonable rate without actually having to employ someone local on a full time basis.
