  1. I am wondering if I still charge my full rate for just monitoring email. I have been in the business for a while but a new client has asked me to monitor 2 business emails 8/hrs a day 5 days a week. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you .
  2. Hi everyone, I'm currently going through another course. I've found a refreshing new perspective to pricing. The mentor talks about shifting your mindset from what should I charge to how can I help people. But the next part of the equation really opened my eyes: He said, if somebody dumped x amount of dollars into your bank, would could you offer them from the list of things they need help with. So rather than choosing your services or packages, then sticking a price on them, he's flipped it to start with a figure. He also stated that, if the client cannot afford, this is where you start removing components as opposed to lowering price. Really got me thinking ...
  3. Hi Everyone, I have had a request from a potential client to provide a quote to do a 12 page newsletter. She would like me to set it up to enable her to add and edit the content, to be able to have it in pdf and jpeg format. In all my years of designing newsletters and leaflets I have always used MS Word, I have used this to create templates for other people and it has always been professional. Can other VAs give some feedback on the software they use to create newsletter templates to enable clients to edit? Would use charge by the hour for this service or as a package / project? Thanks,

  5. Hi VAs! I'm new to this forum and have been running my freelance editing business for 9 years. During the last 2 years, I've added a VA wing to my business. Could I get a little feedback on my pricing? Here's my current VA services page: http://writingandeditingtoday.com/virtualassistance/#.VLsQUUfF8vw Many thanks! Gina
  6. Hi Everyone! My name is Megan. I'm an up-and-coming VA. (I haven't even opened for virtual business yet. Still figuring things out). I'm a relatively recent college grad, who majred in English and Theatre. I would like to begin my VA business by offering basic office/clerical services, and expand into internet marketing, word press sites, and editing, so that I might eventually work with writers and artists. I've answered most of the basic business start up questions for myself, but there's one that I'm particularly stuck on. How much do I charge? I know that many of you out there have had the same question, and there are many great answers to it peppered about this forum. There are so many in fact that I actually found it a bit daunting, so I decided to try posting one of my own. Here is my problem: As I said, I w.ant to start with basic office assistant type services. I know it makes the most sense to charge an hourly rate for such things, but I don't think that would be fair. I'm a good worker, and I'll do a good job for my clients, but I admit I do work slowly. Tasks usually take me twice as long as most people. It's no big deal. i mean, I'm used to it, and I'll make decisions accordingly. But I don't feel right charge someone for two hours work for things that most other people could do in one. Does anyone have any thoughts as to how I could charge a fair per-project rate for work that would typically be hourly? I hope this makes some sense, haha. Thanks everyone, for you help! All the best, Megan
