Who Is A Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant also referred to as a VA, is someone who mainly provides office and administrative support services to their clients.  They work remotely from their home office or from a centralized location.  Since its inception, the field have grown to accommodate other services beyond that of a traditional administrative assistant.  Other services VA's provide includes marketing and advertising, social media, web designing and SEO (search engine optimization) and technical services...just to name a few.  

Virtual assistants are not employees.  They are self-employed business owners themselves, who provides services for small business owners and corporate executives on a hourly, weekly or monthly.  Depending on the needs of a client, they can also establish a monthly retainer fee, especially if it goes beyond basic  administrative and clerical functions, to include other are tasks that falls within the scope of their prescribed services.
