A word on pricing

In terms of costing, each VA charges their own rate - which may be hourly or project based.

As a general rule, most Australian based VA businesses charge between $35 - $75 per hour.

However, for highly-skilled work such as copy writing, graphic design, or website design, average rates are closer to $100 per hour.

I always give a quote at the start of any project, and that is the agreed price the client pays - no bill shock here!
