What is a virtual assistant?

Postby Flo » Sun Nov 27, 2011 5:53 pm

What exactly does a virtual assistant do? It sounds like something I might be interested in based on the title alone but before I actually bid on a job I want to know more about what my duties might be.

A virtual assistant, or VA, is anyone who does work for you via the Internet. Virtual assistants can perform a wide variety of the tasks an Internet marketer does. Hiring these long-distance, often less expensive assistants to do repetitive tasks frees up the marketer's time. More energy can be spent on growing his or her business.

There are companies that will let you work remotely doing administrative assisting of various sorts. Now that I have high speed internet, this is something I should look into. Some people make good money as VAs.

I don't think there is a standard job description for a virtual assistant. I think the job would involve whatever the person hiring you wants it to be. It could be anything from writing, to posting, to link building, to responding to questions and more.
