    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking of getting a few VAs for a project I'm starting. What do you guys pay per hour or per full 40 hour week for your virtual assistants? The work required is very simple, no technical knowledge required, does that make it cheaper?

    Question open to virtual assistants too, what do you charge per hour or week?

    Thanks! :)

    I saw here on BHW that someone is offering VA for $300 a month. I don't know how many hours, but it was surely $300 a month. I personally don't have VA so can't tell. Just don't try to find them on Fiverr. They are super expensive there nowadays .

    3$ per hour sounds very reasonable for a good VA. You should probably aim at that price range if you are trying to hire people.

    I found one through a cl ad that I posted not too long ago. Currently, paying the VA around $300 per month for multitasking various SEO tasks.

    @jamie3000 even it's no technical required tasks, the rate also depends on other factors such as VA working time (timezone), short or long term, their TOS&PP and experience.
    I've seen people working for very low rates (Web design) and use copyrighted materials to sue you indirectly later. Just an example of many. Avoid being fooled !!
    If you have another concern, reply or PM me! I am a VA myself.

    What a fucking wonderful and well thought out question.

    Follow-up: Do all workers work at the same exact speed?

    What's the point of finding the lowest per hour worker if they are also the slowest. Nice try tho..

    $300 a month for fulltime is a bit low. Go up to $500 atleast for a decent VA.
