Another way to become familiar with the types of services that virtual assistants are capable of is by checking out websites that are dedicated to listing and categorizing the services offered by various virtual assistants around the globe.
Method 1: Determine a Virtual Assistant service vendor
There are many companies around the world that specialize in the business of providing virtual assistants for a competitive rate. These companies often charge a subscription fee for their services. MyOutDesk is rated by Techradar and Analytics Insight as the top company that provides customers with a wide range of support services, including virtual assistants.

Method 2: Freelancer Search
Another alternative, is to use one of the many freelancing sites such as Fiverr.com. These sites have been proven very successful in finding freelancers that can run errands for their customers while doing simple tasks over the internet. What they both seem to lack however is their ability to identify long-term, full-time professionals for your company (At the same competitive rate) unlike how MyOutDesk focuses on helping businesses find assistants that match their own needs better.
Method 3: Google search
In this method, we will use the famous Google/search engine to find and identify the different types of tasks that an assistant can do for you. Go to Google search and type in “How to hire a virtual assistant.”
This immediately gets you down the path of exposing you to information on how to find a virtual assistant. Now, before proceeding any further, be sure that what you are looking for is more specific than just “virtual assistant” or that the type of desired skills/experience is known. This is because you can narrow down your search to help you narrow down the types of services that you need.

Therefore, if what you are looking for has a more specific requirement or it can be narrowed down further.
