Any job that one can do at home can be both profitable and fun. There is no fixed schedule to follow, which gives one the freedom to work whenever he/she wants. Reward for doing an online job from home can be very bountiful if done with honesty. Payment varies as it depends on the kind of job one is doing. One can earn as little as $1/hour, and on the other side of the spectrum, a marvelous income of up to $100/hour can be made. Type and earn money by doing very simple online jobs!
Unfortunately, pay for typing jobs may fall short of lofty expectations. The reason is that legitimate typewriting is virtually the easiest job that one can find on the internet. Some say being an online typist is an unfeasible employment as it pays less than the minimum-wage rate in USA; true, but what about freelancers who live in India, Philippine, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nigeria? They are happy to do all types of online jobs as long as they can make a reasonable amount of money from them.
At the end of this article [before the comments], you will find a list of online jobs companies that pay users money for doing different tasks including “typing,” “visiting websites,” “playing simple online-games,” etc. [the first five sites give cash for doing such easy data entry jobs.] You can join all five of them or at least register with the top two companies.
Make money the easy way from online typing
People living in these countries can easily make their living from legitimate online or offline typing jobs. In Pakistan, some labor workers make $30 in a Month [they work for at least 10 hours daily, and there is only one holiday in a week]. Do you know what the national-minimum wage-rate is in Pakistan? It is $80/month, but the private sector doesn’t follow this law, and they are paying labor workers as low as $30/month. A typing job therefore can be a very rewarding career for such people.
How much money can one earn from online typing?
There are no fixed rates. Hundreds of employers create typing-job-listings in freelance websites. One of them may agree to pay $10/hour, where another one will settle for a lower $5/hour rate. Whatever the job’s rate-per-hour is, one can comfortably make around $3000 in a month from easy online typing.
What type of job is this?
As said earlier, typing jobs involve doing very simple tasks such as typing content into Microsoft-Word from an image. Employers give scanned images to freelancers who then type everything, written inside them, into text files. A PC, an internet connection, and some typing skills are required to make money from this opportunity. This is a legitimate opportunity, so you do not need to worry about online scams as no one will ask you to invest money, ever.
Difference between online and offline typing jobs
For online typist jobs, one needs a fast and reliable internet connection; without it, work halts.
In some projects, freelancers receive scanned pages that contain information about several-hundred products. They also get access to a webpage/form, linked to the database of employer’s website. They fill the form for each product. Each entry lists a new item in the site. The content that they need to submit is available to them inside the scanned pages.
For offline typing jobs, employers send a single zip file to the freelancer, which contains scanned or PDF documents. The task is to type everything from these documents into text files. Freelancers do need internet connection to download the work-material and to communicate with the employer. Once it is downloaded, he or she can start typing without using the internet.
Can you make a living from this online job?
For a person living in a third world country, yes it is possible to make a living from online typing. Moreover, one can try to gain skills in other online jobs too, such as programming or content writing, so that he or she can apply for coding or online copywriting projects, both of which have a much higher paycheck.
People living in USA, UK, or any other developed countries can consider typing jobs as a part time opportunity. The pay is low, so a better option is to look for other jobs. Copywriting is a better option; it pays as good as any decent office-job in USA.
