Review:

MyVA360 enlists seasoned virtual assistants to help companies with administrative work, research, social media and scheduling. The work is done remotely, and, generally, on a schedule determined by the virtual assistant. 

MyVA360 sells virtual assisting services in 30, 60 or 120-hour “packages.” When virtual assistants sign up, they state what they can do and how many hours they’re available. The site then matches VAs with assignments that require that VA’s skillset and time constraints with suitable clients. Once matched, you meet with the client directly to discuss expectations and deadlines.

Jelena Mijajlovic, MyVA’s founder, says that while the site looks for experience, it also helps train VAs in skills that are in high demand, such as using Asana and Hubspot. VAs can work as many — or as few — hours as they wish. However, they generally need to be available during normal weekday business hours.

While pay is set at $13 per hour, Mijajlovic says the site will provide raises for VAs that get high performance ratings from their clients. 

Recommendations:

This site is relatively young, which is a mixed bag. While young sites typically don’t have as much work as more established enterprises, they’re also more likely to provide the one-on-one help that you might need when getting started. The hourly pay here also is relatively low for seasoned workers, but the working conditions are flexible.

Our advice: Sign up here and with other VA firms, including Belay and Boldly, which promise higher hourly wages. And, also work on developing your own clients by advertising your services on Nextdoor, LinkedIn, Facebook, and other social media platforms.
