    3 Important Things You Should Consider When Looking to Hire VAs



    Know which skills you need help with from VAs. These may be in digital marketing, research, web management, or customer service. Skills which do not need your employees to be in a physical office you manage. These are all doable online, with computers and apps.


    Work Schedule

    When looking at hiring a VA, it is best to work with them during AU work hours. VAs that are able to work on your time 8 hours a day. We see productive hours when we are able to work simultaneously with them.



    Your VAs should be effective native English speakers. This also means they are culturally aware as well, plus they should know all the standard apps necessary for doing remote tasks, giving you reliable input like regular reports.
