How much should a virtual assistant cost for your business, and how much do TGH’s VAs get paid? In this article, we aim to answer these questions and more.

The cost of a virtual assistant is difficult to answer because so many factors are at play. Do you want someone based in Australia, or are you open to hiring an offshore worker?

No matter what your requirements are, at TGH, we believe that the true value of a virtual assistant lies in its ability to transform your business. 

Now before we talk about us, let’s talk about YOU.

The challenges with scaling a property business

Scaling a property business with a team of 10 or more staff inevitably brings unique challenges and goals.

Having worked with multiple property and education businesses in this position, we understand the pain points business owners face when scaling.

Each staff member must clearly understand their roles and responsibilities, and these must be effectively coordinated to ensure smooth operations. In addition, it’s important to ensure that the team is well-motivated and engaged in order to reach collective goals.

Then there’s the outsourcing challenge.

Outsourcing work to overseas staff is a tricky proposition: you have no idea how much salaries should be, what HR and legal requirements are in countries like the Philippines, and so on.

The good news is that we’re here to help overcome these challenges.

TGH’s virtual assistants are here to help bridge the gap between your local staff and offshore workers. From setting up processes to helping with recruitment, our virtual assistants will help you get the most out of your workforce. We’ll even take care of HR issues so that you can focus on growing your business.

Understanding the Value of TGH’s
Virtual Assistants

“How much do TGH’s virtual assistants get paid?”

Answering this question can be challenging, as the scope of virtual assistant services is extensive and often kept confidential within businesses. However, we’d like to provide you with an insider’s perspective to give you a glimpse of what it entails.

In order to provide you with valuable insights into the services and value of The Growth Hub Virtual Assistant salary, we conducted an interview with Noel, one of our experienced team members who transitioned from being a Champion to a Hero.

By sharing Noel’s story, our aim is to give you a glimpse into the financial side of virtual assistant services and how they have greatly influenced Noel’s career and personal life.

Noel’s Journey from Corporate to
Outstanding Virtual Assistant

Noel used to be a marketing executive in a popular hotel chain in the Philippines. He rented an apartment away from his family to live closer to his work, which would take an hour or two public transportation rides, depending on the traffic. 

A bulk of his salary would usually go to rent, food, and transportation. Savings? Just a little. 

Tied to a desk, with minimal benefits and tiring daily transport. Then COVID-19 hit, and the tourism and hotel industry was badly affected. 

That’s when Noel started looking for virtual assistant jobs online and met TGH. He quickly learned all about the services virtual assistants offered clients and how he could upskill himself in doing those tasks.

Within just 2 years of joining TGH, he transitioned seamlessly, evolving from a property virtual assistant to a dynamic member of our HR team. Now, he is an indispensable asset to our marketing team!

During our interview with Noel, we wanted answers to the following:

✔️ What makes him stay with TGH (instead of going to competitors)?

✔️ What’s his best learning in the virtual world so far?

✔️ Is the virtual assistant salary enough to sustain him and his family?

Curious about what Noel had to say about his journey with TGH? Keep reading.

The True Value of Being Employed by TGH:
More Than a Salary

I had the pleasure of having a chat with Noel about his journey with us at TGH. 

Here are some of the things he loves about working with us and why he keeps on choosing to grow with TGH compared to other virtual assistant jobs out there:

✅ Freedom from the daily commute

✅ Flexible working hours while earning more than what he used to earn in the corporate world

✅ Opportunity to support and help his family

✅ More open doors  to grow and learn within the organisation

✅ Collaborate with growth-minded and happy people in TGH

HMOs, Paid Time Offs, paid training – more than a regular virtual assistant salary!

✅ Blessed to work, travel, and enjoy at the same time (he’s been to the mountains and some beautiful beaches of the Philippines!)

✅ With his salary, he was able to buy his very own house!

So much more!

I don’t want to spoil the whole thing, so I’ll let you discover more and listen to his full story here.

It’s More than What’s in the Bank

What we pay to our virtual assistants, or Champions, is worth far more than what’s in the bank. 

With this kind of setup, the value of our Champion’s salary runs deeper, as it supports families, savings, travel goals, and many more!

We invest in people – that means developing skills, relationships, integrity, and outstanding work ethics (just like what Noel has an abundance of!)

Still, got questions? Maybe you haven’t made up your mind yet about getting a property virtual assistant through an agency like The Growth Hub. We understand.

Comparing Alternatives:
TGH vs. Upwork and Fiverr

It’s natural to consider less expensive alternatives, like hiring a virtual assistant through Upwork or Fiverr. But cost isn’t the only factor to consider when it comes to outsourcing.

Here’s what TGH offers that our competitors do not.

💪🏻 Not just soldiers but growth partners 🤝

At The Growth Hub, we offer a premium service that goes beyond the duties of an ordinary virtual assistant. Our Champions, like Noel, are more than just task-takers; they are growth partners who are deeply committed to their roles, consistently delivering high-quality work.

They are trained and experienced professionals equipped with the skills necessary to cater to specific needs like property management.

Sanders Muleya, the Director of Msisa Property and Consulting can attest to that. 

Here’s what he has to say with his experience with The Growth Hub:

We are grateful for these kind words from our clients. Listen to his full story and why he keeps choosing TGH as his property business partner here.

We look after our people, which means they look after you. ⭐️

Furthermore, we provide benefits such as health insurance and paid leave, which you wouldn’t typically find on platforms like Upwork or Fiverr.

This not only ensures our Champions are motivated and satisfied, but it also translates to better performance and reliability for your business.

While you might find cheaper options elsewhere, remember the adage, “you get what you pay for.” The higher cost of hiring through TGH is an investment that guarantees value for your money.

We take quality seriously ✨

Our Champions (VAs) have their internal coaches, aka. “Heroes” are in charge of nurturing the Champion’s growth.

On top of that, we have a rigorous process to assess and monitor quality performance on a regular basis. Our Heroes work closely with each client to ensure their needs are accurately understood, and the work is completed to the highest standard. They act as the bridge between clients and Champions, integral to both parties’ success.

So when you partner with TGH, you can rest assured knowing your virtual assistant is held to the highest performance standards. Our systems are designed to ensure value for both clients and our Champions.
