Where To Hire A Virtual Assistant Who Can Save You Time & Help Scale Your Business

hey miles here miles Becker calm in this

video you are going to learn where to

hire a great virtual assistant so you

can free up more of your time to scale

your business it's important for you to

stay focused on the highest valuable

tasks in your business which means you

need to get good at delegating and

handing off those repetitive tasks that

others can do this is where bringing on

a full time virtual assistant can be a

massive boost in your productivity and

it really truly has for my wife and I so

in this video we're gonna cover the

types of things I outsource to my VA s

where in the world I've found the best

virtual assistants and then where what

platform to go find these individuals

but Before we jump into those three

things I want to know have you already

hired your first virtual assistant if

you've already done hiring and you're

looking to grow your team farther put a

yes in the comments below if you've

never hired a virtual assistant put a

know in the comments below because I

want to know where you are I want to

make more great videos on outsourcing

but I need to know where you're at so

yes you've already started hiring no you

haven't started hiring yet that'll let

me know where you are give me a thumbs

up and hit subscribe on your way down

there too back to the curriculum here so

the first thing what kind of tasks do we

actually hand off to our virtual

assistants and I think it's important to

hire full-time because what that does is

it forces you to go find those kinds of

repetitive tasks or identify those

repetitive tasks that you're doing over

and over and over so you could hand them

over to your virtual assistant so I got

a little tiny list here one of the big

things is customer support my VA team

runs most of the support on pretty much

100% of the support social media audits

looking at social media posts we put on

one platform that perform really well so

we can go duplicate that out on another

platform so scrolling back through the

past two three four or five years of our

Facebook fan page to pull out those

snippets those memes that we can go turn

into Pinterest pins etc etc I'm Add

Comment management they manage all of

the comments inside of my advertisements

that run Facebook community moderation

they help out inside of my forum to move

the different threads that are

disorganized or in the wrong place they

move those around for us almost 100% of

our Pinterest marketing is run by our

virtual assistants email audits pulling

our open rates from the different

subject lines into a spreadsheet so we

can quit

see how good our our emails are doing so

we can go look back through our history

to find those subject lines that got

great open rates YouTube audits what

YouTube videos do I not have content on

my website for YouTube to podcast 100%

of the process of this video that you're

watching unless you're on the podcast

and you're listening the whole process

once I upload this that's it I don't

touch it

but it still makes it on to my podcast

feed with every talking head video

that's 100% 100% managed by them

outreach research a YouTube verses blog

I mentioned that one chargeback

management travel research event

research the list goes on and on and a

lot of times I find myself in a

situation where we had something nearly

catastrophic happen our main membership

that has over 350 audio files for the

members around my wife's content we had

an update that eliminated all of the mp3

files so they're paying for access to

300 different mp3s and they just

disappeared based on update of a plugin

so I made a video showing here's how to

fix the problem I sent it over my

virtual assistants and by the time I

woke up the next morning everything was

back working it was in tip-top shape and

they stayed on top of the tickets till

everybody know who was like hey I can't

find the stuff that hey you have now

have access to it again so this is

massive because what it allows me and my

wife to do is to say focus on things

like this this video I can only bring

you this video right like I'm mild

vector this is the miles back to bran

that's obvious my wife's audio files are

the big thing but then the studying my

wife has free time to read the books and

to study and to really kind of maintain

her her kind of finger on the pulse of

of her industry if you will so that's

one of the big keys so those are a

variety of tasks and I'm always looking

at what am i doing what can I hand off

to a teammate what can I turn into a

process or a procedure and then make a

quick video I just record my screen as

I'm doing something and I send it over

and say here go do this and then every

single day they just go do the work and

now it gets done and I can focus on

what's that next most important thing

for me to do on my business so let's

talk about where in the world next at

this point in my career I started hiring

back and I think 2000 and

and 11 2012 I hired my first people and

I have hired people from Africa from

Eastern Europe from the United States of

America from Canada from Mexico from the

Caribbean islands all over Asia as well

so we got the Philippines Indonesia

India proper I think I had South America

in there somewhere like literally the

amount of people I've hired has been

probably about 50 or 60 people at this

point in time and for me I have found

that it clicks most from on many levels

with teammates in the Philippines I have

found that there's obviously a kind of

concurrency conversion that is

beneficial and the cost of living in the

Philippines compared to here in North

America is also much lower so so there's

a value there but it goes way beyond the

value one of my last jobs that I

actually hired out I did post the job

for North American candidates and also

Filipino candidates and I requested a

simple tasks to be done using Excel and

the actual work product I got from the

individuals in the Philippines was

astounding like it was so much better

than what was going on in North America

it actually made me feel a little

worried for North American workers

because the every single applicant

almost every single applicant in the

Philippines just nailed it with graphs

and they actually someone went farther

beyond what I even requested which blew

me away to see that kind of thoroughness

inside of this this first task so other

reasons I really really like the the

Philippines is English is learned and

used widely right - gah lah is the the

native language but English is learned

at a very young very young age and it's

also used widely in the school system so

and their their English is a very

Western style of English you also have

the BPO industry which is the the

business processes outsourcing industry

that has been booming for well over a

decade and what this is if you've ever

noticed you call your bank you call

PayPal you call up major airline

corporation like American Airlines and

all sudden you're speaking with someone

in the Philippines right so all these

call centers move from North America and

many Western countries moved over to the

Philippines specifically which means the

they have been teaching and learning

about kind of what I would call the

standard of customer support customer

service and a lot of the different types

of business practices so culturally it's

normal for I mean there's just so many

Filipinos who work within this industry

of customer support and in kind of

virtual assistant world and a lot of

them have had training at a corporate

level which is really really quite

valuable trustworthiness is very big

loyalty is also very big and these are

cultural things right there are some

cultural challenges a lot of times your

team in the Philippines might not step

up and and mention that they see a

problem or mention that they see a

better way to do things they will follow

your word your video you send them

almost to the tea but this is where

building relationship and keeping

communications open is so key and I've

really worked with my teammates to

invite them like to invite their

feedback because I want that feedback

when they're hands-on on a task day in

and day out you know if you notice some

a better way to do this let me know keep

that communication open and really it's

all about relationship building I love

the ability to be able to pay my

teammates again who outperformed their

North American counterparts in some of

these tasks that I used to kind of test

if they were going to be my teammates or

not so not only did they outperform but

they're a better value which allows me

to pay them very very well right I pay

them monthly on a salary whether they

have 40 hours a week or not and I pay

them well so they'll be there each and

every month I don't want them ever

looking for other help because now

they're part of the team right my

business needs their help and I'm always

trying to think of new things to pass

off to them to keep working from there

so that's why I chose the Philippines

the final component in this video is the

third part which is what platform is

best to hire now I really think it's

important for you to get yourself and

your business to a point where you can

actually outsource full time when you

have somebody there forty hours a week

a hundred and 60 hours per month it

forces you to find more ways to leverage

their help syndication is big right so I

put up this video and then I'm done with

it for this video goes out and gets

worked on and turned into the podcast

and goes out to my podcast feed etc etc

there's a lot of different ways you can

leverage it and when you're paying

somebody you know full time even if it's

$250 a month or 300

dollars per month for a hundred and

sixty hours of work it forces you to

start to think like okay what's that

next thing I'm going to hand over to

them build up a queue of work in the

evening before you're done

that's works for us in North American

hours and then send it over and by the

time you wake up that work product gets

done it's really extremely powerful

so fiber is one place that a lot of

people think about so fiber has changed

a ton over the years for a while it was

five bucks plus a dollar fee and then

you'll get back something relatively

quickly fiber is now a lot of 10 20 30

40 dollar tasks available if you ever

want something turned around in 24 or 48

hours that's gonna cost you an extra 10

20 dollars right there because nothing's

done quickly on Fiverr anymore and they

have increased their fee on Fiverr for

the platform by over by a hundred

percent at this point in time so I don't

jive with that website I've found very

poor work product and it's never

building a relationship with someone who

I can rely on long term I've had a few

good experiences but I've had a lot of

bad experiences on there and I'd prefer

to have someone on my team who I can

really rely on being there knowing

they're there each and every day up work

is another one that a lot of people use

and talk about regularly so up work

about a year and a half maybe two years

ago increase their fee they completely

doubled it again a hundred percent

increase in their fee up to 20 percent

so up work takes 20% of the outsourcers

pay just to be the platform which i find

to be an exorbitant fee but you also

have a couple other challenges on up

work number one people are actually

buying fake reviews and buying fake star

ratings and this means that you don't

actually know you can't really trust the

reviews you got to spend a lot of time

reading through those reviews etc etc

that's more on the how to hire stuff but

that's just one of the challenges also

there's inflation going on on up work

the prices that that outsourcers even

even in the Philippines are charging is

significantly inflated versus working

directly with the individuals themselves

so that's why I prefer online jobs dot

pH now I am an affiliate so if you go to

Myles Beckler comm /va you'll go to

their website and if you do sign up to

use the platform it's a monthly thing I

do get a kickback that's not why I'm

making this video it just gives

you an opportunity to help support the

channel in these types of teachings so

online jobs dot pH is the largest job

board in the Philippines where people

from Western countries Australia Europe

nicest America Canada etc are able to go

work and find Filipino and Filipino

outsourcers and teammates through a

variety of different tasks right you

find designers developers coders virtual

assistants customer support content

creation individuals all kinds of

different jobs so that is a platform

that I personally prefer and they have

two levels of membership so for 67

dollars a month you get access to the

whole job board you sign up for a month

you turn it on you go post up your job

listings you go email and do your hiring

and then you can turn it off when you're

done and that's it you can pay your

individuals yourself through like

Payoneer or through zoom and that pretty

much is the game right so you can use it

on demand they have a higher priced

option that's $97 per month and on this

option you actually get access to a full

course and the full course is how to

find how to hire how to train your

virtual assistants which is a really

powerful course and so that's $97 miles

Becker com4 / outsourcing is a URL

that'll take you to that course and when

you sign up for that course you actually

get access to the full platform for a

month as well so that's really the best

value because you get that training as

well so I've had by far the best success

I've got multiple teammates who I've had

with me for several years now that came

from that job board and they're like an

extension of our family in a major way

right like we one of our teammates just

had a baby and and we hired a backup for

her because she's got a baby now and we

want to make sure she had the ability to

you know have sick days as needed and

care for the baby days etc my designer

my developer we use an audio guy who

does all of our audio work he's in the

Philippines so really truly that's kind

of the it right I really think that

online jobs up pH is that direct route

that allows you to connect directly with

the teammate directly with the

individual who's going to do the work so

they don't really take a fee from you

for like the the other ones do so on

Fiverr every time you do a job there's a

fee for the platform on up work every

time you pay there's a fee from the

platform there's an all

jobs you pay to get access to the job

board you're able to do your hiring then

you turn it off and six months later if

you want to hire another teammate you

just go sign up for another month turn

it on and so on and so forth

you don't have to pay so I've now been

paying some my teammates you know tens

of thousands of dollars over the course

of several years and they're not taking

a percent off of all of that right

they're not taking twenty percent of

that which is absolutely ridiculous in

the long term so that's why I prefer it

if you have other questions right if you

have something if there's some aspect

about outsourcing that you're just

you're you're stuck on you really need

to know the answer to give me those

questions inside of the comments so I

know what kind of videos to make for you
