How much can I earn: From $18 per hour depending on experience and skills
Upwork is a very popular freelance platform. They offer a wide variety of services including Virtual Assistants. What makes this website different from others and stand out in the crowd is the pre-screening process, filtering, and customized recruitment choices.
Also, this platform offers VA jobs for people of all levels of experience. So, even if you do not have any experience in this type of assistance, you can still make a profile on Upwork and offer your services to VA job seekers.
How does it work?
Once you make an Upwork profile, tailor it to make it attractive to your future employers. After that, you can start looking for job offers. When you see a proposal for the job you find appealing, you make a bid. If the client chooses you and pays you the certain amount you set a bid for, Upwork will deduct 10% from that earnings. This refers to all of the other deals as well. With constant effort and good reviews from clients, you will establish a reputation for yourself over time.
The best thing about this platform is that you do not need any special education or expertise to have a profile with your services on Upwork. You can become an Upwork freelancer even with 0 experience and with 10+ years of expertise.
