Project-Based Virtual Assistants

A project-based virtual assistant is the perfect choice for accomplishing a job with a well-defined endpoint. For instance, you might need a series of articles written, a logo created, a website designed, your taxes done, or any number of other one-time jobs. Or you may just need to ramp-up staff for a short time. Normally this type of VA service is sold on a fixed-price bid, but occasionally you’ll find companies or individuals billing hourly. Check out the reviews below for more information on finding the right assistant for your project.
