    Hi, Blackhatters,

    My friend who is a student but lost his job wants to know where he can find a job as a virtual assistant. I told him some of freelancing sites but i thought to ask you guys if you know anything more about virtual assistants as i don't have much experience on this field.

    He is pretty talented on creating Backlinks, Squidoo Lenses and some other SEO tasks.
    I know this from my experience as when i have projects i usually hire him.

    I told him that i can teach an easy method on PPD which is working good for me as a test method, but he likes something more stable and want's to have a secured position.

    He is looking for something more on-going basic so any info would be great.

    Most go to Elance, and Odesk to find VA's.


    May I ask for you to expand on your PPD method that you mentioned?

    Another one for oDesk and Fiverr.

    Anyway, I would try to specialize with something very peculiar: everyone is doing blog commenting or forum profiles creation (to tell an example) so I would try to diversify a bit (and grow reputation).

    Also, at the very beginning, over-delivering is actually an option, to get the most positive feebacks.

    IMHO :)

    Well,
    I usually pay him for Articles or Some link building and i pay for links not per hour.

    I suggested him to use Freelancer and Elance also Fiverr as i have used them before.
    But i firstly told him to start creating some websites and rank them it would be better in the long run.

    Try the following:

    Freelancer.com
    Odesk.com
    DP Forums
    Fiverr

    Do odd jobs until you find something full time, make some cash. Better than nothing. A lot of competition for online labourers.
