 How do you virtually assist? Is it different from regular assisting?

A virtual assistant can mean many things, but for me.. I have clients and I help them with tasks they have. For example, one of my clients is a blogger. So I log on certain hours each week (she sets my schedule each Sunday) and blog for her. She's a deal blogger so that just means finding deals and posting about them.

Another client I have, I manage her Pinterest account. I pin things, repin them, and get new followers for her.

I do enjoy it. :) I became one kind of by accident, from helping other people with their blogs and then selling blog articles.

It's not a TON of money, but with just one client I was making about $1500 a month around Christmas time (because that is busy season for deal bloggers). I have several clients that I work with on a regular basis. 

I blog about lots of stuff - crafts, recipes, and random rants. :)

I wrote a post that explains a bit more:

An assistant usually works in an office, alongside her boss.

I work from home, and virtually assist my clients.

Right now I'm working for one of my clients, managing her Pinterest page.

Later this evening I'll be working for a different one, posting deals for her.

Sometimes I write articles and sell them. It just varies from day to day. :)

Wow people pay others to do that stuff?  No offense OP, but why don't they just do it themselves? lol.  I guess if you have the disposable income... lol
