    I am in the information technology business. I do not put any pricing on my websites or social media. It allows me to customize a package for the prospect. If I told you that I charge $135 an hour for an on-site visit, you would keep looking. But what you don't know if that I base the work on accomplishments. If I don't fix it, I don't charge. If I do, and it takes 90 minutes, but I think it should have taken 45, I bill at 3/4 of an hour. If they are a great client and pay on time or sooner, or they are a pleasure to deal with, I can give them a good client discount. If they aren't, well they don't get a discount and the time billed could be higher. The only time I think it is prudent to list pricing, is if you are selling something. Then people will want to know how much for the lipstick, candle, shoes, etc. Hope this helps.

    Hi Everyone!! I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Rachel and set up my VA business part time along side my 9-5 job which I worked 3 days a week. I am soon to be using my Business as my sole income so I am really looking to fine tune, up my skills and make a GREAT income for my family. I am here to network, pick up tips and learn from those who are more experienced. If I can find some more clients along the way then that would be an amazing bonus ❤

    Hello, I just joined this amazing network, and I wanted to introduce myself. I am a visual and written content creator, specializing in multi-lingual and multi-national content creation, branding, design services, localization and translation services. I also offer consultation services for those interested to moving abroad. The reason for this specialty service is that I have gained in-depth expertise due to having lived in 4 different countries on 2 continents, and have familiarized myself in these countries mentality, culture, lifestyle and - especially - bureaucracy and requirements for obtaining work and stay permits. As a native from Belgium (which is also my current country of residence) I am also fluent in 3 languages (English, German and French) and have gained extensive experience in translation work during my corporate career years, and it is another service that I offer. Throughout my corporate career I have been a project manager in the automotive industry. A very tough and soul-sucking job, but planning and organizing has always been one of my passions. As the story goes, I've been offered a very good deal by my last company which I took, with the plan of setting up on my own, as had been a dream of mine for a couple of years now. After all, due to my old age (I'm in my 50's) and being rather expensive in the traditional job market, it would have been hard to find a new corporate job anyway, so I am very glad that this opportunity has come my way. Now all I have to do is to find clients for my VA business and start to make money - sounds easy, doesn't it. My website, that lists all the services I have to offer and also showcases my work in my portfolio is www.juliette-emonts.com Greetings, Juliette

    What service industry? Are you talking writers, graphic designers, webdevelopers, product creators, food industry, where do they live, etc.? Without knowing your target market hard to give you a color. Do a search on website color psychology and you'll have all kinds of information come up to help you. https://neilpatel.com/blog/psychology-of-color-and-conversions/ https://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/designing-websites/how-to-choose-color-for-your-website/

    A VA only has about tops 120 billable hours in an average month. So it could vary how many clients they have like six 20 hour retainers so 6 clients or more/less depending what hourly retainer package they choose from you.

    I'd agree with Danielle, just use your personal one for Linkedin and get known that way. Linkedin is all about business anyhow not personal friendships. You won't find your parents on linkedin talking about what they had for dinner right?

    Hello everyone! My name is Tempest, I live in Phoenix Arizona and I am so exciting to be launching my VA business. I have 30+ office experience and I am ready and looking forward to utilizing my skills to support local small businesses so they can succeed. I take pride in a job well done and I believe I can accomplish anything when I put my mind to it. Speaking of accomplish anything...my website will be ready and live soon. Ha ha! I have been married for 25 years and I have a 23 year old son and an 18 year old daughter, who is graduating this May. Yikes! If you have an empty-nest or about to, you might understand the roller coaster of emotions. With the graduation looming and a part-time job, a husband, 2 kids (lets face it, you never stop worrying even when they move out), 3 dogs (1 of which is a puppy) and 1 cat, you'd think I wouldn't have time to start a new venture but I have been dreaming about this for so long and I know now is the time. When I have spare time I love going to the movies, TV (gotta love DVR), novels, word puzzles and spending time on my porch playing with my dogs, or hunting scorpions (with a six-foot pole of course, I'm not crazy!). I look forward to what the future holds and would love to connect with other VA's to share thoughts. Take care!

    Just Google "Virtual Assistant services" or "Virtual Assistant Price" and you should find lots of sites showing their service pages

    Great advice by Amber! Maybe people will share their services pages here for you to see what others are doing. Here's my daughter Danielle's service page and how she set up hers.

    I think keep the descriptions simple, don't give them too many options or things to think about. Provide a pay pal buy button under each service description and a call to action like 'download my FREE working with a VA ebook' or "You may also like my book editing services <<click here>>" the link would then lead to the next service description. Do this for all your service options on your home page. Which would have an icon or image for each with short description that opens to a new page with the service details, buy button, freebie ebook and call to action or upsell for another service. >image/ icon >title e.g. transcription services >short dot point description of service >PayPal buy button >link to download ebook >link to another service offering hope that helps amber

    I would do some internet research and see what others are writing. Don't copy other's wording (people know who copy as they use Copyscape to find out so don't do that) but do learn from how others are writing their service descriptions. Keep your wording short and to the point. Be concise as online readers don't have time to waste reading long copy. State the benefit of a service (what's in it for them) like we take care of your bookkeeping tasks so you can work on making more product to sell (or whatever)

    I think this is a great start and would just add as you have listed. At the bottom, you could put something to the effect of... if you don't see the exact service listed you require just ask us as we can help or lead you in the right direction. (something like that). As well you might want to say something like we can set up packages / retainers to suit any business budget/need, just contact us for more info.
