Services

As a business owner, entrepreneur or independent professional I am sure that you have a full plate, are snowed under, have a million and one things to do and you work like crazy. No matter how you say it, the fact is - you are busy! Busy is a good thing if you are working with your customers, developing and growing your business and enjoying your personal time with your family and friends but if you are spending more of your time on repetitive administrative tasks that you do not enjoy, then being busy can leave you feeling frustrated.

Pricing

The great part of hiring a Virtual Assistant is that there are no hidden employment costs. This means:

NO recruiting or training costs

NO employer contributions

NO paying for employee extended health benefits

NO sickness or holiday pay

You only pay for work completed, not for the time I spend on my coffee break. You also do not have to invest in a desk, computer equipment or an ergonomic chair. I have the latest computer software and use my own comfy chair.

The pricing depends on the complexity and urgency of the task. My rates start at:

  • $30 per hour for Office Organization, Word Processing, Social Media Management, Standard Administrative Services, and
  • $50 per hour for Website Management and Development, Desktop Publishing, Process Analysis and Project/Event Coordination.

Extra costs for out-of-pocket expenses like printing, mailing and mileage will be billed as required.

An agreement must be signed before beginning work and a pre-payment of 50% is required for large projects or first-time customers.

YOUR BEST DEAL: For clients who would like to retain my services for a set period per month (minimum 10 hours), the hourly rates are negotiable on discussing your specific requirements. Discounts can range from 10-25% off the hourly rate.

Charities and Not-For-Profit Organizations: My heart is with the not-for-profit and I am proud to offer discounts. Let’s chat about your needs.
