A word on pricing

In terms of costing, each VA charges their own rate – which may be hourly or project based. As a general rule, most Australian based VA businesses charge between $35 – $75 per hour. However, for highly-skilled work such as copy writing, graphic design, or website design, average rates are closer to $100 per hour.

I always give a quote at the start of any project, and that is the agreed price the client pays – no bill shock here!

Are there any tasks you outsource to a VA that I have missed here? I will keep updating this list over time.
