The cost of Outsourcing varies among different outsourcing companies, depending on the level of support your VA is given.
1. Some companies expect you to train your VA in all aspects of your business and they take a hands-off “bum on seat” approach. This is the cheapest option – if you know what needs to be done and don’t require assistance.
2. Managed VA – there are a few companies that offer in-house training on a regular basis to ensure your VA is proactive and can suggest strategies, follow templates in social media etc. to assist you with tasks that you don’t have the expertise in yourself. We recommend this approach – to pay a little more but to have a VA that can promote strategies and call on a specialised internal team for support rather than relying on you and taking up your time.
In general a VA is about ⅓ of the cost of hiring in Australia.
