Today, you’ll learn 3 tactics to raise you rates as a digital marketing assistant

What burns me? 

Those get-rich-quick TikTok VA Coaches who sell the fact that new virtual assistants could be making $50-75/hr. They get them in the door selling them the dream and then don’t actually teach the hard implementation skills. And that high rate is not at all what someone new on the scene is making.

So back to reality and the world I live in. You gotta start in the mailroom and work your way up. It takes time and effort. The more experienced you become, the more you can charge because you get faster and more efficient, and you have to charge accordingly.

You have to be patient and willing to learn and grow in the process. It’s not only about the hard skills. It’s also about having soft skills that allow you to make your clients happy and deliver results. It’s all about what you can do as a unicorn.

So here’s three tips for raising your rates as a digital marketing assistant.

Inside this episode, you’ll get tips on:

  • Signs your rates and services are off.
  • What to say in discovery calls to communicate your worth.
  • Shifting into value-based pricing.
  • Creating your own credibility factor.
  • How to know when you’re ready to specialize.
  • Why unicorns DMAs are different
  • How to make admin skills more valuable

Plus a bonus tip that all the successful freelancers “get”.

Especially, listen if you’re not booked out and wondering if your rates are on par, then this episode is for you!
