You have to think about your own living costs in your country and also think about what your time is worth.
Take a look at other freelancer accounts in your country who work in the same field as you. This should give you a guide.

Average seems to be around $3-4/hr if the client is established and on the professional side. Call center type of work.. pretty close to what you're talking about. Same tasks basically. Starting on the low end and moving up with more experience.
Lots of clients paying $1-2 too. That's seems to mainly attract new freelancers, or ones without skills in the software or specific tasks the client needs.
I haven't been working with any clients recently though who hire assistants form the Philippines.. so maybe it's changed a bit?

It's more like an automation thing, like plenty of apps and software that can do the same job (web scraping etc). I bet if relationships can be automated, they won't hire a single marketer here or elsewhere... but not really the case, so we're still here lol
