What do I need to get started?
How about skills?
“But I’m not experienced”. Not to worry. There’s a lot of work at home that doesn’t require a degree or experience? And this is one of them. Although having one won’t hurt. All it takes is a skill that you acquire through the years or something that you could learn on your own or with some training. It’s called data entry.
What is Data Entry?
This is one of the many work-at-home that I find easy. But you have to be aware that there are also many data entry scams all over the internet. Most companies will ask you to type and input/edit data into their system. They also have skill requirements.
Don’t worry If you’re a beginner some of them hire people even if they are not very fast at typing. Because once you get the hang of it, you will speed up eventually. Requirements are very much the same with transcription jobs although you don’t necessarily need headphones or foot pedals. But a good computer and a reliable internet is always a requirement for almost all work at home jobs.
What are the companies that offer typing jobs?
You probably heard of scribie. They pay 5$ to $20/audio hour. It’s another company that would let you work at your own convenient time. Very flexible and files are usually around 6 minutes or less. It also has its own software that would allow you to dictate instead of typing. You can also get promoted once you level up.
Here’s a company that is great for newbies. But you have to make sure that you are good at grammar as well as a fast typist. They usually pay .25 per minute up to 1 per minute. For captioning jobs it starts at .30 to 1$ per minute. Payments are made every Friday.
No experience? Here’s a company you wouldn’t want to miss. You can work as much or as little as you want. Pays usually starts at $0.40 to $1.25/minute. Pays monthly via PayPal. It has a variety of audio recording to choose from. So you won’t get bored transcribing the same kind of audio files every day.
“I’m not from the US” Not a problem. Casting words accept workers from around the globe. They offer different types of typing jobs such as Transcribing, editing transcribing jobs, determining audios quality, approving transcripts etc. Get paid through Paypal.
