Virtual Assistant or VA is an individual who performs administrative tasks such as data entry, calendar management or any other routine task. On the other hand, an Independent Remote Collaborator or Yirc is an independent contractor who collaborates remotely on a project.
Yircx is a marketplace focused on digital marketing projects or tasks only, so a Yirc is an independent digital marketer who earned a marketing degree or who has an equivalent experience gained in Marketing agencies or other Companies, where his/her job was related to any digital marketing discipline.
It’s worth noting that certain tasks are common to VA and Yirc. Social media management, copywriting are two examples.
