Can anyone recommend a Philipino company that can act as my virtual assistant. I want some autoblogs set up and would prefer to use a company that you guys have dealt with so any assistance would be wonderful.

      The one I know of because Russel Brunson of Dot.com recommends it strongly is: Agentsofvalue.

      100% Phillipinos there.

        LOL and I bet it has nothing to do with the affiliate program they offer. They are priced WAY too high.

        I wouldn't touch Agentsofvalue with the proverbial bargepole. I took someone on full time from there who was supposed to be an experienced webmaster etc and they were absolutely useless, we spent more time showing them what to do than if we had done it ourselves.

        We'd also stipulaled the hours we wanted them online (so it was the same as us to which they had agreed), then they had the cheek to change their hours around so they were working whilst we were in bed.

        Don't touch them!

    I really think that if you want to do this, you should simply hire your own full time person and train them to do what you need. Hire someone who already has some of the skills, and can learn to fill in the gaps of knowledge.

    $300 per month would get you a good person.

    I use OnlineJobs.ph

    See my blog (in my sig) for some added stories, info, ideas, etc.

    I have used odesk with much success. I have had much success with va's from the Philipines. Odesk has a rating system, so you can prequalify your applicants. I interview them via Skype. Odesk has anything and everything for hire for your IM endevours. Hope this helps.

    Hi!

    I am a Filipino and a freelance Web Developer/SEO provider. I have a virtual link building assistant doing full time work for me and another one doing article writing. I am looking to hire another Filipino VA and could do the training myself for some link building jobs but maybe needed only 20 hours from her a month right now. I would be starting to train her next week and if you are interested, you can use some of her time too for your needs. If you need somebody to do full time, I'll be glad to help you find you some people do the work as I have plenty of applicants from the previous job opening i posted in one of Philippine classified sites.

    I can do the training so you don't have to and I actually already have some videos put up from the last training I had with my VA and most of them are in Filipino language.

    You can see a sample training video i made to explain directory submission here. directory1

    There are 2.5 million filipinos who don't have a job today so just want to help them.

    Email me at neilng117 at gmail dot com as i don't visit here too often. Kinda busy most of the time.

      YannickvdBos, I recently opened my doors to outside business. Previously, my web, graphic, and SEO team worked on my sites exclusively.

      Since we need to build up our portfolio I'm offering drastically reduced prices. PM me for details.

      I have a team of filipino and pakistani web designers too and here are some of their work . Some of these they did for me and their clients and they give me the right to use them for finding clients for them. (Most of my clients don't want to deal with people outside US)

    For those who sent me an email about the virtual assistant, here are some tasks that i will cover in the training:

    1.) Directory submissions
    2.) Article Submissions
    3.) Angela's and Paul's Link Building technique
    4.) Social Bookmarking
    5.) Feeds Submission
    6.) Blog Commenting (currently being done by my article rewriter)

    Any other things here that you require, please advise as there are some things I do myself like keyword research, website ranking and monitoring.

    Rate:

    Full time: $250 a month
    Part time: $150 a month

    I use Clocking IT to manage my task so I suggest you use it too. It is very useful especially if you are handling multiple projects. That is also part of the training I have for the VA's.

    You should not be putting your own affiliate links here (or anyone's for that matter). Put a link to your own site instead, and put your aff links in there. It's much more accepted.

    Why don't you go to Odesk or Elance and use their rating system to filter out the best VA's.

    Yes Agents of Value is one such company and the same for the one Jedz represents. There are a lot more and its a mix of company and freelance.

    Indeed you can try elance or odesk among other resources.

    In terms of the ranking system just because they are ranked high does not necessarily mean they will be a fit for you.

    Unfortunately, there's really no other way to find that out than to give them a try.

    Will you find the right one? Yes you will.

    Will you find it on the first go? You could but for many I think the experience has been try and change until you find the right person who you can work with and who will work for you.

    And once you find him or her keep him/her because you may not get another chance, what with the competition and all.

    I suggest you outline what you want them to do for you and if there's a timetable to follow let them know as well.

    Also tell them what standards you're going to apply, be it across the board or project wise.

    There's nothing wrong with setting standards and rules to get the job done - you're the one hiring after all.

    Hope you find the one that will work well with you.

    Good luck

    Do Filipino's carry around some sort of prestigious reputation around the VA world?

      I wouldn't call it prestigious or anything like that. But it is known that Filipinos that have been hired as virtual assistants or similar positions have been hard working and diligent. And the fact that we speak English is a plus for many employers.

      Are there any bad apples in the barrel. Of course there are also those that don't do the job and you will hear the stories from people who have had the bad experience with Filipinos.

      But then again that is the inherent risk of outsourcing you get the good with the bad.

      But I would say that more often than not you will be very satisfied with the outputs.

      Regards

      -Cezar

        Thanks.

        Their hard work ethic is not something new to me. I've seen it first hand offline. Just curious about the online world.

        Thanks again! =)

      Indeed. The risk with outsourcing is you won't know if that person is good or not until you actually try then for a while.

      Then you'll know if they are a fit or not or whether they will actually do the work or not.

      If you're lucky you get a keeper your first time at bat. If not you may need to do a couple of rounds before you find the "one."

    You can hire workers from here:

    Find a real, online job! | Home - I got mine from here.
    craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums
    Outsource to Freelancers, IT Companies, Programmers, Web Designers from India, Russia, USA, and more
    Elance | Outsource to freelance professionals, experts, and consultants - Get work done on Elance

    To ensure that you will hiring the right VA - give 2 or weeks trial. There are some that you can't really get quality kind of work. If you want some writings done, make sure to let the worker do a sample article and assess his or her work before hiring.

    Hope this helps

    I hire workers directly, using John Jonas' teaching... and
    have been VERY satisfied.

    I'm sure that I understand the culture better than most
    Warriors since I've lived in the country, and often
    vacation there. I speak Tagalog (the national language).

    Some of the recommendations given here are actually
    Americans setting up offices in the Philippines, hiring
    Filipino workers for clients, and charging three times what
    the worker is getting paid. That's still a bargain but not
    necessary if you take the time to do an interview, explain
    what you want done clearly, and test the employee
    before considering it a long-term commitment.

    All of the workers that I hire work full-time (40 hours per
    week) exclusively for me. I have THAT much work that
    needs doing... and it allows me to focus on doing the
    things that I should be doing in running a business.
