Use the handy calculator below to help determine the cost of working with a professional virtual assistant, versus hiring an in-house employee. Note that with a virtual assistant you avoid the costs associated with an employee such as: insurance, paid vacation or sick time, overtime, paid down time, non-productive work hours, employee-related taxes, and more.
Virtual Assistants were recently highlighted as tip number two among the top six money-saving small business tips at the Savings.com blog:
Go Virtual: As business growth presents new challenges, such as servicing your client base better or performing some other task that is beyond your capabilities, you’re going to need extra help. Hiring virtual assistants is one approach you should seriously consider for two main reasons. The first is that you can hire help temporarily, on an as needed basis. The second is that, due to the current job market, you’ll be able to find and attract qualified people to assist you at very reasonable rates. Should you have a need for advice and expertise in the area of drafting legal contractual agreements or other specialized documents, consider hiring a virtual attorney. Unlike traditional brick and mortar lawyers who generally charge higher fees and may require monthly retainers, virtual attorneys will save you money by working on a per job basis.
