Data Entry Jobs, Have you tried one?

Philippines
July 29, 2009 4:15am CST
There are so many data entry jobs available on the net. I want to ask the experience of some of the members who paid to join Data Entry jobs? Is it true that you have been billed once? Are you scammed? are their promises came true, because some of it promises that you will earn $ 7000 in a week. Is it true. I am planning to join this one data entry job but I have second thoughts about the offer. Can you add some information?

You know, the $7000 a week claim is partly true... if you add on the adverb "Pro rata..." There are 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week... So, 60x24x7 = 10080 minutes in a week... Now, we take the $7000 and divide it by the number of minutes in a week... 7000/10080 = $0.69 per minute... Since a lot of those outrageous claims are for simple copy and paste jobs, we can say that it takes 1 minute to complete 1 job... Assuming we get 5 jobs per week, that's $0.69 x 5 = $3.45 per week... Therefore, with "Pro rata" those claims are true... LoL... ^_^

No, I did the maths and concluded that it would be too much hassle for no guaranteed return on effort... problems like ghosting with certain jobs are due to exceeding posting of a certain number (I think it's 3) of posts per day from a single IP address... if you're going to make 10 postings in a day, you're going to need access to 4 different IP addresses - not so easy for people with static IP addresses, but still possible... ^_^

$7000 a week looks "scam-perfect" for me. Even $700 would. All I can say is don't fall for such enticements - earning on Internet is no easier than earning offline. The only consolation here is that you don't have to go anywhere but your home PC. My one advise would be that when you join a site that promises to pay you, look at what is on the offer table and check out if it's proportionate to your work you do; if it isn't, keep away from the site. And no, I haven't been scammed yet.

I would be interested in knowing about the data entry job you work too. If they are hiring, I would love to work this type of job again. I did it years ago, and am looking for something to supplement my income. Please PM me with the details!

Data entry seems too mechanical for me, I will get bored even half way through the first job. So I never tried. People with more patience can try such jobs. Sites like GetaFreelancer have such jobs but as a new member you will have to sacrifice on money at first to get jobs. Otherwise most of the times only the experienced ppl with some rating and feedback are given the jobs.

From most of the research I have done for data entries I have found that most are asking for a payment and then they want a monthly payment as well. I will not join those. I feel that as with getting a job offline getting online shouldn't cost. I know there has to be some out there, they are just hard to find. Just have to keep looking and have faith you will find one.

I have often considered trying data entry online, but I too have been skeptical. My main thing is, I would love to of course continue my 40 hours/week monday-friday job, but also earn extra income while at home in my pj's! If anyone comes across a legitimate online data entry job, let me know!! :)

I am really interested on it but when I browse their is require membership fees which I could not pay as I may become a victim of scam. It is good to have online data entry job as long as their is no joining fees require.
