General Administrative work $35-$45 per hour
Mid-Level Technical Administrative work – $45-$60 per hour
High End Technical Work $65-$100 or more per hour
Working by the hour is viewed as dollars for time and not dollars for value.
Ask your virtual professional to create a package for they type of work you need done.
The value in packaged rates is in reaching a specific goal as opposed to paying just for time.
Here are EXAMPLES of packages. Note that most are custom packages created after
speaking to a client and determining specific business needs.
Email Marketing Starter Package- $239
CRM Starter Package – $239
CRM Follow Up & Follow Through – $529
Admin Support – $399

Book Me! Calendar Management & Scheduling Package – $769
Here is one example of a Basic Social Media Package* (if interested if this Dream Team Virtual, please contact me)
$147 set up & $1400 (3 mos) or $500/ month
The Basic Package is a mini service offering that’s perfect for an upcoming small business, blogger or entrepreneurs that needs just a little bit of assistance throughout the month.The package will provide you with 1-2 status updates/day on 2-3 networks, deleting of unwanted spam, accepting friend requests/following back & basic profile management
*Rates are individual based on length of experience, level of experience and skill sets.
How to pay your virtual
While I do not handle payment plans for virtuals I recommend, I do offer advice based upon my years as a virtual assistant.
This is my preferred way to set up payments with virtuals:
1) Pay a 50% deposit up front
2) Pay remaining amount with work completed
3) Always work with a contract
Ongoing, Long-Term Work
1) Pay a 50% deposit
2) Pay a retainer package rate up front and one month in advance
3) No rollover hours
4) Work with a contract
