    VA Packages

    Hi Brittany, not sure if you read the section about setting your rates on this page yet: https://www.vanetworking.com/become-a-virtual-assistant/ It might help answer some of your questions. For packages, I find the best way to set those up is to outline everything included. Then figure out how much time each task takes you. Then you will have an idea on the time. So all the tasks in that package might take you say 4 hours. Add on a buffer in case something takes longer than planned. So let's say like 5 hours x $30. To get your package rate. If you are just starting out I suggest keeping a list of everything you do and how long it takes you. I wish I did that when I started because it would have made creating packages a breeze. I hope that helps answer your question. Tawnya might have a better suggestion. Will you be on the VAinsiders Call today? I recommend asking there if you are attending. Also, I think $30/hr is a good starting point and you can increase from there. I think when I started my business I started at $35/hour. But I also live in an expensive city.

    New VA

    Hi Brittany, welcome to VAnetworking! Have you read this article yet about getting started? https://www.vanetworking.com/become-a-virtual-assistant/
  5. Ontraport might be a good option for them. It really is an all-in-one system. Shopping cart, membership platform, it can even do drip campaigns, email marketing, landing page builder. It WAY outperforms 1SC in my opinion.
  6. Does anyone have any recommendations for a content delivery system that integrates with Infusionsoft and possibly WordPress? I'm leaning toward Memberium myself. I've also researched Customer Hub and imember360 Need to be able to deliver 1 off content, and also create entire training courses/membership programs.

    Hi Noemi, welcome to VAnetworking! Sounds like you have some experience to help you on this new journey. And WOW you sure work a lot of hours. The programs you'll need for your business will vary depending on the services you'd like to offer. You can get them along the way as you need them (that is what I did). Do you know what type of clients you'd like to work with and what services you'd like to offer?

    New to the forum

    Hi Lora, welcome to VAnetworking! Do you have any ideas as to what services you'd like to offer clients? Look at what you enjoy doing, what you don't enjoy doing, what you excel at? Then maybe we can help from there. Also, are you attending our upcoming conference, VAvirtuosos? It's only $37 to attend and if you can attend, I think that it would be beneficial in helping you get started. You can learn more about it here: http://VAvirtuosos.com

    WordPress Plugins Suggestions

    Sounds like you might have figured it out, but thought I'd mention that a lot of themes have it built in now, there's usually a custom header/footer section somewhere in your theme customizations.

    Recommendations to guide potential clients

    If I don't have someone to personally recommend to prospect, I tell them to post an RFP at VAnetworking's job board. I explain that it's free to post there as well. I always make sure to use my affiliate link, then I get a $5 referral. I'm not sure of the best way to find VAs to outsource to. I have VAs contact me on my website all the time about working together and I usually take a look at their website to see if its someone I'd be interested in working with. Then I keep their contact info on file with what they do. I've posted RFPs myself and have found a few good connections for outsourcing as well. Maybe we should start a thread in the forum in the VAinsiders area and put our information so we can all learn a bit more about each other. Maybe something like: Name: Contact Email: Website: Who do you work with: Specialties: Or something, and we can create a little database on our VAinsiders Forum. Maybe Tawnya has some ideas on that.

  20. Hi Sophia, welcome to VAnetworking!
  21. Hi Teishla, welcome to VAnetworking! Let us know if you have any questions.
  22. Hi Stephanie, welcome to VAnetworking! I don't think you need a specific certification, but if you don't have much background experience it could be helpful. We have our VAvirtuosos Seminar Series that is taking place in November. If you have an extra $37, I suggest attending. I think it would help you get started and answer a lot of your questions.
