More often than not, a virtual assistance hourly rate is going to be a bit higher. However, you save a lot of money when it comes to benefits and overhead that would be applied to a full-time employee wage. Virtual assistants are also more experienced, which makes them more efficient and better connected. You will not have to spend as much time training them.
