I need a virtual assistant to help me with various projects. Ideally we find during this project that we work and communicate well together and I can continue to provide work.
Initially, I need someone who can do some market research for me to find out what competing American businesses are charging for similar services to mine. I want to be competitive, but not the cheapest! Ideally, I'd like *some* of the competitive data to come from companies in my region (Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia).
Web design, primarily using WordPress. This includes custom theme, installation, configuration, entry and formatting of 10 pages of client-provided content. Complete integration with social networking services. Custom contact form(s).
I also do logo/brand design and development.
Custom designs for business cards, postcards, flyers, brochures. (no templates!)
Set up google local (google places) pages for local companies.
Facebook landing page designs.
Backup and security for wordpress sites
Installation, configuration and custom templates for MailPress (a wordpress plugin)
Do my competitors charge a monthly maintenance fee for site updates and changes? Or do they charge hourly? If so, what are their rates?
Please ask questions before bidding.
I guess to summarize, I need to know what my competition charges for similar services.
