    I am having a bit of trouble lately managing all my sites. I am wondering what you all feel is better, hiring a va to build 5-10 links per site per day or buying link packages?

    If you planning on building 5-10 links a day, it dosn't matter since it will be low quality anyway.

    What a weird reply, define ' low quality ' especially when you don't know the OPs budget.

    This is horses for courses, there are some good link sellers, there are some not so good.
    VAs are the same.
    I have been told a specific job I needed doing would take 1 person 3 hours, they went ahead and did it in .. 3 hours.
    I had 2 other people ask me about the job, 1 told me they could do it in 10-15 hours.

    Sad thing is people apply for these types of jobs and say they know what's required ( when they either don't understand or just want to try screw you over by over billing on an hourly rate )

    Go for a fixed price if it's just a handful of links, specify your requirements clearly and make sure they understand fully,

    Yes, I have a pretty decent size budget. And I agree, where does it say the links will be low quality? These are for money sites and the links should be relevant and high quality. So lets say a link package for pbn links is around 100-200$ for 25-50 links. Thats for ONE site. A VA could possibly find high quality blogs for outreach or comments on hq posts to include a link back to my sites. I myself can go to big G and find 25 sites to post a comment on but that takes me away from my design and admin work. So i mean its kinda up in the air. If i pay 1 person for 40 hour weeks and there job is to 1. do outreach for guest posts 2. find other sites they can leave good comments on with links back to my sites.

    I would say never go with link packages. They are being built (links) by automated softwares

    I think hiring a VA is much better because they can check if the blogs they'll put comments on is high quality and relevant to your money site. You can also do PBN links if they offer niche specific topics. Anyway, if you need a VA, PM me, I have free time on my hands. :)

    My vote for hiring a VA. And prices will depend on your working load, process and time. But also if you can find any good seller you can go with package. Because for VA, you need to organize the work for him/her. So you need to invest some time here also.

    You can find people from Philippines and they will be your VA for 2-6$ per h. I found that people from
    Philippines are the best in that. They are loyal and not whining about money all the time. So far in all my ventures when i need VA i always choose people from that specific country.
