About Pinoy for Hire
Mohammed Khonizi is the founder of Pinoy for Hire and started the company in June, 2016.
When you sign up with Pinoy for Hire a member of their Human Resources team will discuss your requirements and then find the most suitable assistant to work with you.
You’re given the option to interview the assistant yourself. This is always an important step when selecting a VA to work with as you can personally check they have experience with the tools and type of work you will be sending them.
The assistant then works out of their offices in the Philippines. You also keep in touch with the team member who had the initial meeting with you to help resolve any issues that may arise.
Pinoy for Hire’s virtual assistants are ready to handle a wide range of tasks, they group some of their general services as the following:
- Lead generation
- Data entry and research
- CRM management
- Social media management
- Administrative support
They are brief in the areas they list as within their skillset. As with most virtual assistant companies they are ready and willing to take on just about any online work.
The list their area of specialization as search engine optimization. If SEO is your main focus then I suggest talking through your SEO goals with a member of their team to see what they can offer you.

Pinoy for Hire has three different pricing plans as follows:
- Test It – $49 ($6.10 / hour) – A one-time 8-hour bundle.

- Full-Time – $599 ($3.70 / hour) – Full-time 160 hours per month.
Full-time support for $600 a month for an office-based assistant is crazy cheap, even for the Philippines.

Your assistant works within business hours in the Philippines time zone with the Test It and Part-Time plans, or within your own time zone if needed when you sign up for a Full-Time plan.
They are also willing to discuss custom plans if none of the above meets your requirements. Just contact them to see what you can work out.
