Thought this was rather a sensible article on pricing your services:
What I would add from a VA point of view:
- This is for a solo VA business, if you are a multi VA you have to factor in checking time for the other VAs, but you can increase the amount of billable hours overall.
- There is a natural ceiling for the number of hours that clients will pay for basic admin, and where that ceiling is massively depends on local salaries. E.g. If you are charging almost as much as they’d pay an a full time on site assistant, they may well prefer to do that.
- Specialist skills will pay higher rates, as will fast turnarounds, team environments, experience being a VA, and VAs who have equipment/systems that speeds up work or produces higher quality work.
