Simple Method for Finding Great VAs

Here’s what has worked for me. It costs a bit more upfront but I get higher quality results and build better network of providers:

1) Clearly define a relatively simple task in an area of your business that will require ongoing or periodic support.
2) Specify the skills required to complete the task.
3) Post it on elance, odesk or your preferred network.
4) Award the task to the top 3 to 5 respondents.
5) Pay all the VAs for their work and award the future work to the very best.

In some cases, VAs have been willing to do simple preliminary tasks for free if the prospect of ongoing work is real and substantial.
