Nowadays, Virtual Assistance has been a known profession. It gained more popularity since the start of the pandemic because a lot of people wanted a job where they could work in the comforts and safety of their homes while being close to their loved ones.
Everybody knows that these remote workers, known as virtual assistants or VAs, serve as executive assistants or secretaries to their clients or employers. It’s just that they do the tasks remotely or virtually online.
But, did you know that there are a lot of surprising and unexpected tasks that virtual assistants do for their clients? Yes, VAs tasks are almost limitless.
Every virtual assistant is equipped with skills that allow them to perform both backend tasks and take calls.
There are virtual assistants who offer their services for graphic designing, web developing, writing content, transcribing, bookkeeping, managing social media, search engine optimization, social media marketing, and lead generation to name a few. VAs who have multiple skills usually charge more for their service fee.
Aside from those tasks I mentioned, I also discovered some unusual tasks that surprised me. There are General VAs who also perform personal errands for their clients like sending out personal invitations, greeting cards, and newsletters. Some are asked to shop for their clients online and even manage their finances. Can you imagine that?
I also stumbled upon the participation of VAs in the e-commerce and real estate industry. And guess what? These VAs are usually the top earners in the wondrous and remote world of virtual assistants.
How surprising, right? So, a VA job interests you and you think you can do these surprising tasks, then you can be a promising Virtual Assistant too!
If you are curious about how you can start a Virtual Assistant career, I have a tip for you. Here in the Philippines, there are hubs where Virtual Assistants stand by to look for potential clients. But, there are also VA agencies that have a pool of skillful VAs. One of those agencies is The VA Hub, and they are willing to assist both clients looking for a VA or VAs looking for a client.
