Competing with big job boards

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!  I am wondering how VAs actually go up against the big job boards that offer jobs for at least 5 or 10 dollars.  Has anyone been told by a potential client that they can get a job done for a lot less by going to a job board?

Heather,

When I get potentials like that I let them know go right ahead, they aren't my ideal client anyway (I don't tell them the last part). There are plenty of ways and places for VAs to get clients that are in their ideal range and that will respect what they are requesting in payment - this forum is one of those places!

Like Emily said in her post, the clients that want the $5-10/hr VAs are not the ones you should be putting any effort into prospecting. There are plenty of other potential clients out there who are willing to pay $40-60/hr. What you need to do is to create a marketing plan that will attract better prospects for you.

For example: One of the best ways to get these types of higher paying clients is to join the VA organizations like ours that have job boards. We won't even accept jobs into our job board that are only paying $5-10/hr. The clients coming to our board know the value of a VA and are willing to pay for it and are high quality. Just landing one of the jobs at our job board at say $40/hr will cover the cost of one month being a member here ;)
