Virtual assistants come in all shapes, varieties and skill sets, so what they charge does, too. In fact, virtual assistance is such a broad term, you can’t really charge for it per se. What you can charge for is what type of assistance is being provided.
For example, you can expect to pay much more for a higher level service such as graphic design, online even management or affiliate program management than you would for a less skilled service such as answering the phones, sorting email or submitting articles to article directories.
Most virtual assistants provide the same sort of services that receptionists, administrative assistants and office managers perform, so the hourly range can be as little as $25 to as much as $100, with the average hovering around $30 to $50 per hour. Then, of course, you can find assistants in India or the Philippines that charge much less.
