Default Re: Block Rates versus Retainer Rates
On suggestion might be to do some market research on other VA websites. Look at their payment/pricing/FAQ pages, and see when and how they bill clients. You might even shoot them an email and ask them what has and hasn't worked for them.

You've got a great resource here at this site, so start checking out your fellow members pages!

Thanks Eola, I know we're not supposed to discuss exact rates, but it certainly helps to see what others charge. I feel I can raise my rates more confidently knowing that it's well within a certain standard. I also worry that if I charge too little (not knowing better) clients will undervalue my expertise.

No problem! Keep researching your competition! You also want to consider things such as your particular local market, your experience, etc.

I checked out your website, by the way, and I really liked it! Nice and clean and easy to read. I signed up for your newsletter as well. Looking forward to getting it :-)
