Like the title?
Yea, I’m sucking up a little to you all.
That’s because I need your help.
When you have a question and need to do a bit of research, why not turn to your community, right?
So, let’s jump right into it. I hope you’ll be willing to help a mami out.
Here are my questions.
- What are some standard Virtual Assistant (VA) rates? Even if just the base starting price for standard services.
- Do you charge to review products? If so, what’s your standard asking price?
- Do you charge to host a contest? Again, what’s your standard asking price?
- If you don’t charge for #2 and/or #3 above, then why not? Do you find you get lots of exposure? Is that enough?
- If you do charge for #2 and/or #3 above, has it worked? That is, have you actually been paid by PR companies or even the product’s company?
I realize some of these questions may be sensitive in nature to some. But, the thing is that no one talks about it (that I’ve seen) and it’s hard to know what you’re getting into if you don’t have “real” experiences to relate to.
I’m hoping that by being frank and putting these out there, I’ll get some great answers, ideas, links, etc in the comments…from the perfect source. You!
If you would prefer not to answer these in the comments, feel free to email me with your answer.
