Default List of Priceless Subcontract Services
Let's start a list of services other VAs and service providers would die to have in order to assist them in their day to day business activities. Really the small things are what become valueable. This is a good exercise so newbies know what they could start with.

This is a wonderful list. You are thinking of online services.

Let's think about what the subcontractor can do for another VA or service provider. A few example of services I subcontract out:

Web research
Email management
Online bookkeeping

My biggies are:

1. Being able to update WordPress (Adding & Formatting Blog Post, Add Images, Change Content on Pages)

2. Being able to make WordPress Theme customizations (Changing Font Colors & Sizes, Removing certain elements, etc.)

This is a lot of what I do and I may need help real soon (praying I do anyway)

Items I might subcontract out to another VA:
  • Blog Posts
  • Twitter & Facebook posts / maintenance
As a VA I am always so busy with my client's work an online presence I never seem to have time to keep my own company stuff up to date.
