    Are there any VAs here? What exactly is a Virtual Assistant and how do you work?

    Virtual Assistant are nothing but a Freelancers or Outsourcing companies. They are remote workers. They work for you remotely. Which is so called VA's.

    If you hire a person for SEO in USA as an inhouse staff , you will have to pay them around $3000/month approximately. But you if you hire a Virtual assistant who work for remotely, you may need to pay around only $500-1000 / month.

    Generally people hire VA's for website promotion and web hosting companies hiring VA's for their customer support.

    It is same as your employee, you pay them and give them task to do. Experience VA more expensive, low skill VA will be cheaper

    any depends on task, if it is hard you will need to pay more, if it is easy no one will pay much money.

    I'll be rich in no time in our country. :D sadly, employers will only pay about $200 - $500 a month.

    Virtual assistants are much like your regular office assistant, except they work remotely - usually from their own home.

    But well, it depends if those VA's are really worth paying for. Some are scams especially when you are not aware of the credibility of certain VA's.. since VA's comes in many forms and services.

    Virtual Assistants are professional people who specializes in SEO Marketing and they are almost the same with executive assistants only that they are assisting you through the internet.

    Virtual Assistant, they are your secretaries who are much cheaper but does the same things on what a normal secretary does. The only difference is just there are not there with you. They can do all the work needed from them.

    I have my VA's they help me a lot from my work. You can outsourced some of your task from them. Depends on their skill and knowledge.

    VA's makes your life easier with small amount of cost. It is better than hiring an employee.
