VA Payments 03 and Blog Earnings 01 (USD 2500++)

I’m back, with a vengeance! Nah, just kidding, lol, I just wasn’t able to post on this blog for a few weeks now and I hope I still have readers *crossing fingers*. So I’m back and I hope you’ll be inspired with what I’m about to say.

Well, it’s all about making money online and how you can do it too. I’ve posted a lot of inspirational tips on how you can do it either by blogging or as a Virtual Assistant. With blogging, it’s kinda easier than being a VA. You just have to create a blog, post valuable and informative contents, do some SEO to get the rankings and stats, just to name a few and you’re all set to go. But of course, you can’t just settle for that. You need to continuously improved your blog by doing the very basics or level up. Then, wait for the advertisers or sign-up to different legit paid to blog sites.  As a Virtual Assistant, you need to know what makes a great VA to be able to catch a high paying project or job. It’s not easy, I’m telling you, because to earn big, you really need to work long hours and be knowledgeable about what you do. This isn’t just like blogging or posting free form articles or ghostwriting, this is way bigger than what you think. Clients won’t hire you if you don’t know what you’re talking about. Some will train you, but, if they want to pay higher salaries, then it means you need to be highly skilled.

I’m not that great, you know. Before I became a VA, I went through a lot of tests, trials and errors and yet, earned lower than what I had expected. I thought I knew the basics and boy, I was stunned when I read about what those highly paid VAs in other countries do. It was way more complicated, so, I told myself, I had to learn those things and the tricks. I can’t just be contented with what I earn, I need more!

It was over a year ago in August, when I started as a low profile Virtual Assistant. Heck, I didn’t even know I was doing VA tasks! It was a local company who offered me part-time odd jobs (I thought it was odd at that time, lol) and without batting an eyelash, I accepted. Mind you, that at that time, I had no idea about the projects, but, they trained me online. Little did I know, it was a start of something big for me.

A year later and here I am. An “established Virtual Assistant”, but I know, I still have a lot to learn, though, I’m earning way bigger than last year. So, yay! Happy Anniversary to me!

In line with my 1st anniversary as a VA, I’m posting my earnings from July 1, 2011 to August 31, 2011. I know there are other well established VAs out there who earn a lot bigger than this. But, I’m just so happy because I’m helping my husband with the bills and sending the kids to good schools. You can do it too, you know. Arm yourselves with proper knowledge and skills, and I bet, you’d be back here with bigger stories than mine! 🙂

The red circles are the VA earnings from different clients and those uncircled are the blog earnings I got for 2 months. Goodluck! 🙂

Virtual Assistant Payments 02 ( $1900+)

I haven’t posted any payment proof from what I have done since March 19,2011. The last payment was from my Virtual Assistant Payment 01 which was received last March 18th. Since it’s already July and I haven’t updated the payment proofs yet, I decided to just give you a screen shot of what I got since the last one until June 2011.

Most of my online friends know I’m working as a Virtual Assistant for some clients. I have a full time work plus some other sideline VA jobs that I’ve been doing since August 2010. I’ve posted payment proofs here since I started and below are my latest earnings.

I always tell myself even since my younger days that if I want to succeed in life, I’d have to go through a process called “learning” and “implementing”. 3 years ago I was just clicking advertisements from $0.0001 to $0.01 and it was really hard to earn a single buck a day at that time. I wasn’t contented of course, so I browsed the net for other online opportunities that could rake me thousands of $$ every month. I searched high and low but to no avail. I know some internet and affiliate marketers who are still earning what I have always aspired – millions of $$. But they are veterans in this field and mind you, they didn’t start rich either.

As I traverse this not so lonely world of Virtual Assistance, I see sparkling stars and of course $$ along the road. I would just have to work even harder to achieve and maybe surpass my mentors (they don’t even know they are mentoring me, silently,lol) so that I can finally be free of all financial worries. Of course that won’t be possible if I keep earning this way, so I gotta think of some other ways to make it into a reality full of blessings but not to make me greedy and arrogant.

It is possible to earn a living online and as I always say – “only if you know where to look”. Try to befriend Mr. G and it will tell you whatever it is you wanna know.

Virtual Assistance is a booming industry for us Filipinos and worldwide. If we can scour the net for more advanced teachings related to becoming an effective Virtual Assistant, we may even be given the record for Outstanding Virtual Assistants in whole wide world and world wide web. Note that this business has been going on since early 1990s and now fast becoming popular amongst Pinoys who are seeking legit online jobs.

Stay at home moms can now gain back their lost self-confidence and use their acquired education to pursue a job that would not entail too much stress like that of an office work. Heck, I can even multi-task doing online work, cook and tend to the children. It is not like working 8 to 5 but better, because most employers does not require you to be at their beck and call all day. Mine only requires complete submission of daily tasks so if I am done earlier than usual, I still can do other sideline tasks for other clients. But having 2 or 3 or even more employers/clients at the same time isn’t really the “cool thing” to do. Your main tasks/projects may suffer for lack of concentration or even time. You have to be on top of every little thing and must be great at multi-tasking. otherwise, you will end up with no clients thus no earnings.

I am not saying that I’m a superwoman. But I get things done, period. The only downside is, my personal blogs suffer because I can’t update all 10 as much as I want to. But still thanking Mr. G for bestowing PageRank+2 on each of them except the new ones, of course.

Anyway, if you are always online seeking for a much stable job, I’d suggest you try and research the keyword “Virtual Assistant”. There will be thousands of search returns so it’s only right to start from the first page. Next is, be a voracious reader and consume as much information as possible. This isn’t the regular school reading session and your future depends on how you can digest all things you have read. Take it slowly, or however you want to do it. it’s you call anyway. Just that, whatever you read, learn to dissect, scrutinize and analyze, because that is one skill you will need when you apply as a Virtual Assistant.

Goodluck in reading and please be a dear and tell me what you think by commenting below. Reactions are okay just as long as you are not making yourself stupid by posting nonsense, coz it won’t get approved anyway 🙂
