Virtual Assistant - 4 Services to sell on Fiverr now!
Let's break it down for you.
Sep 17, 2019
When people talk about virtual assistant (VA) they sometimes don’t understand just how different this job could be-
as different people hire VAs for different things!
This post will bring some clarity on that with practical ideas for being a VA using Fiverr.
Although the advice given in this blog post
is about the Fiverr platform
the ideas here are for services
you could also offer on Etsy,
upwork, your own website, etc.
Here are 4 services to offer on Fiverr as a VA!
# 1 - data entry / cms
While a lot of freelancers are being hired to do something their client doesn’t know how to- VAs are often hired to do a job that the client doesn’t have the time for.
People pay good money to Fiverr sellers- for a service of data entry.
This service could be done with all kinds of systems- to take data from and bring data in.
It could be a client that needs someone to take information from a Word document and place it in an Excel sheet.
It could also be someone that has PDFs of articles and needs someone to place them in their Wix/Wordpress blog.
The more systems you know, the more tools you master, the more services you’ll be able to offer.

#2 - social media activity
Similar in nature to data entry, a lot of people have written material ready for social media, but lack the time to do it.
They might need you to update their page, pin photos to their Pinterest, design some stuff for them through their own Canva system, or even ask you to post posts on their behalf to a list of Facebook groups.
If you plan on being a VA it’d be highly recommended you learn a bit about Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and the basics of graphic design… As these skills are highly searched for in a VA!
#3 - research & approach
“I need a list of 100 travel bloggers, with more than 100K following on social channels, with all their social links and email contacts”
That is a great example of things people are looking for a VA to do for them!
they might need you to research topics, provide links for places recommending things, even research other service providers for them.
In the same context- you also have approach!
If a person, for example, is looking for popular fashion bloggers, that person might also want you to email those bloggers- offering them to join the shop’s affiliate program, run a giveaway with them. or even review stuff the shop can send them for free!
This kind of work requires knowing the web a bit, as well as mastering the art of Google search (God, I love that phrase).
#4 - Cold/Hot calling, mostly real estate
Now, for the greatest discovery I made (maybe it was clear to everyone but me)- Most VA jobs on Fiverr are for people who do cold calling for real estate companies and realtors!!!
I am serious, Fiverr’s search results are crazy for this type of service, with people having anywhere from 5 review to 500!
Although it’s not all about the real estate, a lot of VA “bosses” are looking for people to make calls for hot/cold clients, using numbers from anywhere in the world!
Know this- being a va on fiverr doesn't mean you wouldn't have to be active about getting clients.
Now, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but this is my SHORTEST blog post.
the one with the least amount of links and explanations, or photos.
I’m kinda mean that way, but I strongly believe that if you can’t research this topic using my guidelines- you can’t really be a good VA 🙂
Good luck, show them what you got!
