There are two routes to go as a virtual assistant — you can either work under a company for a set rate of pay, or work for yourself and set your own rates.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to make money online is to do surveys. You can use sites and apps like Swagbucks, Survey Junkie, or Opinion Outpost to fill out questionnaires and get paid in cash or other rewards, like gift cards.
