In the current global economic climate, I have found that many businesses are wanting to cut their overheads and outsource their administration tasks such as, typing, reception, data entry, secretarial tasks. If you have any type of administrative skills there is now a huge market for virtual typing services, virtual VA services but, you need to have a well optimised, high ranking website to advertise what services you can provide for a client and, how you can help them. A lot of businesses are now outsourcing their administration as, a typing from home service works out much cheaper than having an in-house member of staff. Look at the legal sector and, in the UK the NHS. They are making their secretarial staff redundant and, are now hiring outsourced staff as, it cuts their overheads. If you figure out what skills you have to offer and then have a well optimised website, you can find clients that you can help and, for a much better hourly rate than if you were working in an office. I started my own typing service in 2006 and, now have a team of transcribers and we have never been busier.
