    Hey there,

    I am not looking for a job or something. I am working out the feasibility of people who want to work online in India rather than go for a normal job which won't get them much money. So, If you are in to IM, ans these few qns?

    How much would you pay for a good virtual assistant working full time (40 hours per week)?(who knows SEO, can do link building tasks, can run most tools.)

    Would you be able to provide a permanent position for such as position. Like a job with 6 months or annual contract provided you are satisfied with the work.

    A "good" virtual assistant.

    If you want someone seriously committed to doing a job well done. Dedicated, and creative. Manual & automated work being completed..

    I'd pay 5000$/month. But unfortunately their are only 0.2% of these types of people that exist and extremely hard to find. As most people don't even know what they are doing and they call themselves "SEO Specialists", SEO consultants.. etc etc..

    EDIT: lol my post came up in front of V again

    Yup... I'm getting one myself again in a few days.

    The sad thing is you pay $500 a month for quality, and wind up with the guy who you would of been paying $75 a week.

    Go through the VA guy on here, he's nice to talk to and I'm sure he picks decent staff... better than running the gauntlet of odesk anyway.

    $75 a week for fulltime? Phillipines usually charge average of $4 an hour, so I'd say it would be more like $150-175 a week.
