work at home typingLooking for typing or data entry work that you can do from home? You might consider opening your own Virtual Office Service. Many different types of businesses either don’t have the time or the resources to do this type of work on their own. Your clients could range from self-employed entrepreneurs and business travelers to small companies. Jobs can range from data entry to bookkeeping and accounting.

So what does it take to provide a Virtual Office Service? One of the basic requirements for this type of business would be good word processing skills. If you have experience in a certain field, like accounting, you should capitalize on that and market your skills to clients that would benefit from that skill. Of course, organizational skills would be essential. You may need to juggle several jobs for different clients at one time. You would only want to take on as much work as you could handle effectively in a given time period.

The basic equipment that you would need include a good computer and printer, and most likely a fax machine.

To sell your services to potential clients, you can make up a flyer or brochure outlining your skills and the services that you offer. In order to build up a clientele, you would probably need to do quite a bit of cold-calling. Introduce yourself to local business owners, and leave your flyer with them. You could also make up a website and market your business on the internet.

The standard for rates range from $20-$50 an hour. Depending on how many hours you want to work each week, you could make anywhere from $25,000 to $80,000.

    A virtual assistant job is quite different from a typing or data entry position. It’s more like a secretarial or administrative assistant position.

    Anyone who has worked as a secretary, is organized and has good computer skills can become a VA but typing speed alone won’t qualify someone for VA work.
