I always thought virtual pa's just answered the phone? I'm looking into it as an option to work from home.

How much do they realistically earn?
Is it better to work for yourself or a company / agency?
If you work for yourself how do you find the work?
Can you do it parttime?
What is required apart from answering the phone?

Hi, being a virtual PA in fact does not involve phone answering it is more of taking up on admin related tasks like data entry, creating newsletters, email and diary management, social media management, web content updating, blog writing. I have been looking to do start this a business myself. I have done a lot of research on this. Others who have been successful, seem to have found their clients through getting involved in networking events - a lot of them; they also value linked in as well when finding their clients. I have joined many facebook groups for VA's; I read a lot of others' experiences - so far I have seen that more experienced VA's tend to offer their own experiences as an added service to other newbee VA's, they sell training programs, or e-books that they prepared and so on. I could not find the realistic earnings on this yet. Good luck in your search xx

A friend of mine has a Pink Spaghetti franchise - google their website, it'll tell you about what a virtual PA does.
