Online Data Entry

Aug 17, 2007
Do you have dreams and aspirations of working from home? Are you ready to fire your boss and get rid of the stress and frustration of commuting back and forth to work? Do you have excellent data entry and typing skills? If so, you should consider online data entry. As the popularity of the Internet expands, so does the need for quality data entry workers. So, how do you get started?

First of all, you must understand the specific job duties of a data entry worker. As an at home data entry worker, you'll get paid to enter data and type ads from your home. You'll work for various companies and they'll pay you an hourly or commission rate for your services. In some instances, you can make up to $200 or more per day. Although you don't need a special degree, you will be required to complete a training program and exceed client expectations.

Second, have to choose the right company. In case you don't know, there are many legitimate and illegitimate opportunities and it is up to you to weed out the lucrative opportunities from the scams. The key to finding a legitimate position is to conduct your research beforehand. To find a suitable program, conduct an online Google search for online data entry programs and then evaluate company offerings. In most instances, you'll have to purchase and complete a training program. Once you complete the program, you will be given access to a list of hiring companies that hire at home workers. Don't be taken aback by this requirement. You see, most companies use this phase to screen out the serious front he curious. By requiring that you purchase a program and complete a training process then they can see that you're serious about the position.

Third, check fringe benefits. Some well known and reputable companies also provide invaluable hands-on training and support in addition to the training program. That is, once the program is complete, some companies will provide support for a set period of time and may even help you set up your very own secretarial/data entry business that you can run yourself.

Fourth, once you find a suitable company and program, ask for referrals before you sign up. This will ensure that the company is legitimate. Here are some questions you can ask:
a. How long did you work for XYZ Company
b. Were you pleased with the service?
c. Did they require that you complete a training program? If so, how much did it cost? Did you find it useful?
d. Did XYZ Company offer any support once you were finished with the course? IF so, what type?

Fifth, take your time learning the ropes. Learning to become a data entry specialist and securing the perfect data entry position takes time. You may not find a job or program right away but if you stick to it, you will!

In conclusion, as the Internet grows, so does the need for online data entry workers. By doing a bit of due diligence beforehand, you can find a great program and will soon be on your way to making a lucrative income from the comforts of your own home.
