Though I don’t want to focus too much on specialty jobs here, I am writing this post to logically complete what I discussed in a very old post on this site. Also, check out a more recent post on legitimate data entry websites.
Online money making is for everyone! But there are a number of jobs that you can find online but can be executed in either online or offline mode – Data entry jobs are one of those categories. In fact, the amount of money one can make through legitimate data entry jobs is as good or even better than many of the permanent data entry jobs.
What does it take?
All that you need to have to find a data entry job is to have an Internet connected PC and a valid email address. In some cases the employers might want you to fill in your other contact details such as phone numbers or permanent mailing address which makes sense. You should be good at typing to make more money and you don’t need to be a pro in Internet or online technologies.
How does it work?
Once you sign up with these sites, you will be assigned the jobs – sometimes downloaded online, some times via CDs posted to your address or if you have a good Internet connectivity you can work directly online as well. Once you complete the job and validated you get paid instantly. In most cases the payment is per page of entry done – it can be $5 or $10 per page. It is not a difficult task to make $50 or even hundred per day, if you want to make it your main job.
Where to get Online Data Entry contracts?
If you search in Google for ‘online data entry jobs‘ you will find a number of them. Though I haven’t personally validated them, I found the following links exciting enough.
They also have a number of content creation – technical writing etc – jobs listed there on the above mentioned sites. In addition, there are several forum threads such as the Digital Point Content Creation and Services threads that provides a lot of freelance opportunities for data entry
Tips To Remember
- Never settle for peanuts – You deserve to get paid at least $5 per page and there are a number of offers out there that hardly pays 50 cents per page
- Try completing in small portions initially and get paid. Don’t wait to deliver in bulk – many of them try to find silly reasons to reject. Do it this way every single time even if you get used to a particular service or employer
- Ask for recommendations from your previous data entry assignments and use that to get more contracts
Good luck with your work from home options and let us know if you find some great employers online in which case we can write more about this topic here
