A virtual employee can be an excellent alternative to hiring an in-house employee, especially if you are considering your first hire. Virtual employees work remotely and are most often employed by a third-party company, so you are essentially buying a service from that company, which means you don’t have to worry about payroll processing or tax liabilities. Read reviews from real virtual employee companies to find one that best meets your needs.
