Data entry is the act of transcribing some form of information into another medium, usually through input into a computer program. Forms of data that people might transcribe include handwritten documents, information off spreadsheets, and sequences of numbers, as well as computer code and even names and addresses. Some careers are exclusively involved in data entry, while certain workers, like programmers, might have to occasionally enter data while performing other tasks. Anyone interested in this career should be cautious, however, as there are many online "opportunities" that are actually scams and not legitimate jobs.

Job Description and Necessary Skills

Good typists, especially those who are also excellent at 10-key typing, are often qualified for data entry positions. 10-key typing uses the 0-9 keys often found on the right side of a computer keyboard, also called the number keypad. Most companies that hire people for this work have requirements for Keystrokes Per Minute (KPM), with a high degree of accuracy. These numbers can vary from one business to another, but are based on individual keys rather than words.

Ad

Some companies use audio input, which a person listens to while entering data into a computer or similar system. The typist needs to be able to follow along as the recording goes, so that pauses are kept to a minimum. Accuracy is vital in applications like programming, since the wrong letter, number, or symbol can throw off an entire command function within computer code. For spreadsheets and published or printed documents, typos can result in misinformation or embarrassing errors.

Qualifications

A degree or particular type of education is not usually required for this field. People can gain fast and accurate typing skills through classes or other methods, such as extensive practice. Certain specialized fields may require training in particular software programs or knowledge of subjects like medicine and anatomy. These opportunities usually pay better than general entry positions, but may require certification, education, or previous experience.

Telecommuting Opportunities

With a number of computer systems requiring new information on an almost constant basis, data entry does not necessarily have to take place in an office. Many people work out of their homes entering data, transcribing medical information, or updating websites. Some of these opportunities can be found online, though many companies require that applicants come into a location for testing and training. Once this is complete, the typist might work onsite at that location, or may be eligible to work from his or her home.

Scam Offers

Anyone who wishes to enter the data entry field should be careful to avoid “scam” offers, which promise work in exchange for a fee. The majority of legitimate sites do not require a fee be paid, since the entire purpose of such a job is for someone to enter information in exchange for payment. Many of these sites prey on people who want to work from home and often seem too good to be true. Extreme caution should be used by anyone approaching a company selling a book or other service to "help" him or her find data entry jobs, as many such offers are scams.

Future Changes and Automation

In some cases, computers can perform data entry by scanning documents and converting information for different programs. This method and others may ultimately eliminate some jobs. For example, sufficiently accurate voice recognition software might reduce the need for medical transcriptionists. Anyone working in this field should look for ways to gain additional skills, such as knowledge of computer programming languages, to become more attractive as job opportunities become limited.

Physical Toll

Data entry requires focus and concentration, which can be mentally exhausting and physically challenging. It is important for people sitting and typing all day to pay attention to maintaining good posture, type in an ergonomically sound position, and take breaks for their eyes and hands. Most experts in workplace ergonomics suggest that people sitting at a computer for extended periods of time should take a break at least once an hour and move away from their computer screens. Hand and body-stretching exercises can help prevent health problems like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Okay people, i wanted to warn everyone that's new to this job, that paying fee(s) to work are 100 percent scam offers (they try so hard to scam people to get money, they convince them, and two days later you find out you got ripped ).

So, there are hundreds of data entry jobs everywhere that do not require any fees.

People who need workers post their projects in front of everyone and you can bid on them and finish them, then the project director (creator) gives you your salary. However, it's either moneybookers or bank transfer or Paypal (these are three safe ways to get your money)

And one more thing: working as a data entry clerk is $10 - $50 an hour. (Depends on the quality and the time. If the quality isn't good you might not get your money if it's a direct job for you.)

Hi M Straka - I know what you are talking about. I i bought a e-book from a group and let me tell you it's all a scam. I paid R390, got my instruction manual and what was inside was a dissapointment to me. You have to create ads in newspapers online like classifieds. Then you trick people like you who's looking for work to buy this book. Then you are suppose to get paid. They even said you get your money back but that's a lie too because you have to do this for at least 6 months then take steps to get your money back. I went on a site today it said it's free, you don't need to pay any fees but as I went into it, eventually I got to the price of this data entry job -- $99 on special just like the one person said in a previous comment so people be warned: online jobs is a SCAM.

Data Entry online is nothing but fake. If someone wants to do such a job, it's better to go out to the particular office, get proper details, and get recruited after proper investigations.

Investing money without meeting anyone related to it in person, or knowing anything about their agency is nothing but blasphemy. It's foolishness.

"this is john. There is no genuine data entry project available, where you can work part-time (20 hours/week) and earn more than US$20-US$30 per month. I want to know about these data entry programs.

Many people expect us initial membership payment. How can i trust them? Can i really get paid for the work? Please guide me regarding this. Thanks."

If you try than you will be fooled. People can get their work done in countries like Bangladesh and India in for much lower wages. So don't be fooled. There is no easy money in life.

I just want to share my experience with that kind of work at home.

Would be great but is not!

Sorry to tell you this but is the true. I visited a web page that convinced me. I was very skeptical after I read more than 20 webpages, through several intents on how to do this. Like I said, this webpage convinced me, well to make the long story short. When I went to click and accept, I noticed the text changed, so I changed my mind. But I had already entered my bank info, but I didn't click to accept because i found something weird. Well, to my surprise, the next day my bank showed a $29 charge from this company. Well I called the bank and I requested and demanded the money be put back into my account. I had to request another debit card to block further monthly charges. What was the thing that sounded weird when i was in that process. But pay attention: I never clicked accept but their system already had my information. That happened in March. I had to file an investigation through my bank and finally in September, i did receive a letter from the bank that the credit i got back few days later my filing is now considered a definitive back credit because the bank didn't receive an answer from this company. Finally my problem was resolved, but please don't believe these offers of making money from home. After years looking opportunities making money from home, i found that situation, that definitively answer me that this kind of business is a fraud.

I know I am killing your hopes but it is better to know the truth.

thanks, M Straka

accounts department, entering invoices for medical supplies and want to do similar work again.

You can get started in freelance data entry by getting hired at a data entry company. Then, after a number of years working there, you can figure out how to start your own company. Data entry typically requires specialized software into which you input data.

I was on this work-at-home forum today, and several folks were talking about how they freelance write and are getting paid $300 - $4,000 per day to write what they are calling "data entry".

Well, at first they were talking like they were the ones making the money, but after I got to asking them questions, I came to realize that they were just quoting ad-hype. They were very evasive about telling me how data entry writing worked and each recommended that I click on the links in their sigs to find out more info. They all admitted that they had yet to try it, and that they were making money off selling the e-book, that supposedly told you how to write data entry. The book by the way costs $349.99 but is on sale for the "amazing low price" of $99 today only (no matter which day you visit the website!) And I visited more than 20 different sites, all different addresses, but all with the exact same content, pictures, and one day only sale. Well, I wonder, if they can make $4,000 a day writing data entry, than why are they settling for selling the e-book instead? Sounds pretty fishy to me.

Well, I guess you can tell, they sound like scammers, so I gave up on them and their advice, but it did get me to wondering, is there really such a thing as data entry freelancing and does anyone here do it and know how I could find out how to get started?

So, I guess my question is, does anyone know of a way to break into a data entry freelance career, without buying scammers-e-books to tell you how to do it?

I tried searching Google, but that only directed me to even more "get rich quick scam sites"; nothing helpful there.

Advice?
