Legitimate online data entry

by INTJ 3 replies
Hi, I recently lost my job and I haven't been able to find another one. I type really fast (100WPM), so I'm trying to find a work from home data entry job. I understand that the rates will probably be low since I'm competing against the world, but I think it's the easiest way for me to pay the bills since I'm really good at the skill and there's low barriers to entry.

That said, my question is if there are any legitimate online data entry jobs with lots of work, that's easy to get into, and if you could link me to them.

Thanks!

    Watch here comes the flood of spam from the usual sig spammers of fiverr, Upwork or Freelancer etc.

    To the Op this maybe not be the best place but post your skills as a service on Craigslist and Back page. Also answer any ads on Indeed.com and Monster that are looking for Data Entry skills.

    Maybe look at it another way , though it would depend on where in the world you live!

    Search on Google for small businesses who do secretary or admin from home , you should find quite a few

    So now you have a base to work off and then contact the business and let know of your skills and what you like to do and are they looking and email resume!

    Or start your own business in Data Entry and post ads or flyers in the area you live , set up a LinkedIn page bio and Face Book business page , if you type that fast and are accurate you will find work

    Good Luck
