How to Use Upwork to Hire Virtual Assistants

REMOTO WORKFORCE Team I Updated on - June 1, 2022

In this video I walk you thru how I hired my virtual assistants using Upwork. You can get shirt designers, video editors, and people to help you with anything you need! I spent $348 this year on my VAs. Small price to pay to get some of the work off my shoulders.

Here is a link to a very helpful video series from Upwork that explains the process in detail and how you can get started to hire a VA: /

Sample Job Posting Written by Me:

Hello! Please read all of the following carefully before you apply to this gig.

I am looking for someone to edit my YouTube video footage and make the videos fun and exciting by adding sound affects, graphics, and transitions. I have a small channel about reselling items for a profit. My channel currently has around 1900 subscribers. My goal is to slowly grow to around 5,000 by the end of 2018.

Each project I will deliver to you the file clips and your job will be putting them together and making the video flow. You can use your creative freedom. I will give you other YouTube channels to use as inspiration as to what I’m looking for. You will also need to create a thumbnail for the video in 1280 x 720 px format.

Video editing skills, fluent english, and prompt communication is a must for this gig. I expect the projects completed within 48 hours of delivering the files to you. Video length should be around 15 minutes total.

In the next few weeks I will be trying out a few candidates for different videos while I try to find the right fit for an ongoing position. This job could be 2-3 gigs a week for whoever I hire once the quality of work is proven. Please provide some background info on the skills you have and if you have a portfolio of work I would love to see it. If you have ideas for how I can improve my channel, please note these when you apply for the gig. I look forward to working with you.

PSA I will never try to sell you a bullshit course. I actually do the things I make videos on instead of just trying to sell you an eBook on how to make 10k a month. I am on YouTube to document my journey of creating income streams that allow me to travel the world and remain financially stable. If I put out information on this channel it will be free.

For everyone who has been watching my channel since the beginning, thank you. It started in January of 2017 with 6 subscribers. One of them was my mom. Thanks mom for believing in all the ridiculous things I try to pursue. May you all find whatever it is you are looking for.
