Do you have tips for hiring virtual assistants?
What kind of tips are you looking for? Where to find VA:s? How much to pay?
If you are looking for freelancing websites to hire virtual assistants then
Amazon Mechanical Turk are best.
If you want a more specialized site in VA you can check
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.
Wait for further replies over BHW or just go for other freelancing sites and open a projects over them!
