I have clients that are looking for a variety of services that I don't provide or am not comfortable doing such as:
- design/graphic work
My question is, should I start building a team of VA's that I can subcontract this type of work for, or just refer the client to a VA that provides the "other" services they are looking for. I think the idea of having a one-stop solution to their needs sounds great, but I'm worried about finding reliable VA's that provide bookkeeping and graphic/design work at a subcontracting rate.
On the other hand, if I just refer the client to them, it creates another "hassle" and interview/sign up process, more paperwork to sign, etc...
I'm not saying that I don't know any reliable VA's that can provide bookkeeping services (CANDY ) or graphics/design work, it's just that I know these VA's are busy and don't have room for more clients. I'd like to find VA's that can take on new work, and at the same time aren't depending on my workflow to "support" them.
What do you guys think? Should I start a team of VA's or just refer the client to an established VA business?
