Have you tried oDesk? There are a lot of jobs available through them. I have been working through them for years and I love it.

Odesk is similar to freelancer.com except that you need to have a webcam in order to work there as your work will be monitored all the time. And the payment there is more secured, I think.

Hi! Im a freelancer. Try to sign up in odesk. I think that the legal data entry job requires you to possess average typing speed and excel spreadsheet familiarity. Organizational skills is a must. Once you're at odesk, take the tests that is relevant to the position that you want. It will increase your chance to get hired. Dont bid for a large amount of money. Start with smaller ones since we are new there. I just got an offer there, its been 2 days since i signed up.

im my personal experience, data entry consumes more time than a regualr job, i guess it depends on what your priorities are... If you do a search you will find many offers, just as an advice, take special atention when you choose to accept a job btw, Im new here a friend refered me to this site and i guess its a better way of earning an extra income than data entry =)

I don't know how much you can earn from data entry, but why not focus on having fun and earning in mylot expressing your views instead of repetitive entry work? I am sure you will love it as many of us have.

i have ever joined such data enrty jobs, but in trial edition. because legiti data entry jobs dont allow worker to make mistake. one mistake is enough to decresae your credential and the when you make mistakes again you will kicked out. i ever worked in trial edition in site which input data from yahoo business, but i forget the name of the site. i also ever workd in cloudcroud, using facebook app. it is very good sites, so many jobs evryday. but one mistake i did lessen my credential and finally i got fired after getting 1 dollar in my paypal. if you have good english, it is the rigt place for you. but you have to take credential test firts before you take the jobs so many scam data entry jobs. they offer too much money for simple jobs. too good news sounds not to be true. just check the review of the sites before joining. good sites will never ask you to pay as registration fee. legit site never do that freelance, elance, an odesk are good site even i dont do any jobs there in reason i have no skill matched with offerd jobs there

This is a tips to get project on freelance. Don't wait that freelance notify you for any jobs. Just visit directly to freelance and look for the fresh project and bid. Because most of our competitor will go directly and wait for the new projects that no one will bid to the projects... If you wait for the email notification from freelance the chances to get data entry jobs is lower...

Just make a new account to erase the old one so you can get the job again

you need to draft a impresive profile in your freelancer account and bid on the projects that you likes
