    Hey Jerrymc

    If you are looking for freelancing websites to hire virtual assistants then
    Frelancer
    Guru
    Upwork and
    Amazon Mechanical Turk are best.

    If you want a more specialized site in VA you can check
    VANetworking
    ResourceNation
    AssistantMatch
    VirtualAssistants and many more.

    Some of the tips I can suggest you while working with VAs are
    1. Give them very small amount of work which can be done in a little time (say 1 hour). This is easy to track.
    2. Use good messaging tool
    3. If possible use cloud system for all conversation and file transfer
    4. Brief them well and confirm their understanding of the tasks. This saves you a lot of time.
    5. Trust your VA and start delegating. Don't micromanage.

    Hope you'd find these tips helpful.

    Thanks
    Laiq

    Yes. How to find reasonable rates and what to expect from freelancers.
