Cost Comparison – Virtual Assistant Vs Employee

It’s hard to quantify in your head the difference in costs overall between a virtual assistant and an employee.

When it’s set out in a table, the choice is stark.  Looking at LiveLink, our average client fee is £300 per calendar month.  For larger or very busy clients, it can be £800 – £1000 per month.  Which sounds a lot until you look at it over a year.  £1000 a month spent with a virtual service would save you over £8000 a year.  Every year.  Without the hassle of employing someone and no office politics either.  And less stress…

Take a look at these figures – they may surprise you.
