Great Alternatives to Data Entry Work at Home Jobs

Great Alternatives to Data Entry Work at Home Jobs

One thing I’ve noticed in running this site is that many people who want to work at home start their search with something like data entry. It’s easy to understand why. Data entry work at home jobs sound easy, can be done on the computer by just about anyone, at any time of day, and with kids around. You don’t have to worry about noise.

No doubt the high appeal of data entry work at home jobs is why there are so many scams in that area. It’s easy to fall for things that are too good to be true when you’re looking for the easy solution.

There’s a simple truth about legitimate work at home opportunities. They’re work. It may come easier for some than for others, but it’s still work.

Pick right and you’ll enjoy your work more, but an effort on your part is still required.

So what can you do aside from data entry if you don’t think you have any work at home skills, need a flexible schedule and can’t count on a quiet household? Are you just out of luck?

Fortunately, no.

You Can Do More Than You Think

Mostly that’s because most people don’t realize how many skills they do have. If you have office skills, for example, you may be able to find work as a virtual assistant. If you have transportation you might try mystery shopping, although it can be hard to earn a good living until you have a lot of experience in that field.

You might find a job where you can do research online, or where you can look up court documents in your area. There are writing jobs for those with excellent writing skills. There are lots of freelance writing jobs out there.

If typing is what you really want to do, go learn general transcription. It will take some time to find a general transcription job that pays well enough to be worthwhile, but it has fewer training requirements than medical or legal transcription.

Beware The Work At Home Scams

In all cases, you want to watch out for work at home scams. They’re out there in spades. This is especially true if you are looking for something as popular as data entry work at home jobs.

If any job sounds good to you, check out the company. Ask on forums about them. Search the company name on your favorite search engine with the word “scam” and see what comes up. Take some time to think about it. Really understand what it is you are getting paid for.

And learn what the common scams are in different work at home industries. There are common signs that will help you to keep on the right path.

For data entry work at home jobs, one common scam is to try to get you into affiliate marketing. But not the honest kind of affiliate marketing. The scammers want you to post ads about how you can make money posting ads on forums, blogs, and social media. Never mind that these are places that ads are rarely welcome and most of you posts will be deleted. Or that the ads will be selling the same information about ad posting that you got from the ad you followed.

There are ways to make money as an affiliate posting on certain kinds of sites. These ads usually give you the wrong way. The very wrong way.

In general, anything that promises easy money is lying to you. Most ways that you can easily make money don’t work for more than a few people. Even in the areas where some people legitimately do make big bucks online, such as blogging or making YouTube videos, most people won’t make much at all. The ones that make a lot have worked hard at it, even when it looks easy from the outside. Just something to be aware of, even if you don’t let it stop you.

Learn New Skills

Let’s say there’s a work at home job opportunity that has caught your eye, but you don’t have the skills for it. What do you do then?

My simple answer: Go get the skills!

There are lots of opportunities to learn new skills that will allow you to work at home successfully. Some options are free, while others cost quite a bit of money. Whether you can do it depends on what you want to do and how much you can afford to spend.

Take medical coding, for example. Solid training for that through Career Step will cost you a few thousand dollars. But, their training is highly reputable, and it’s a job that has fair demand.

If you want to become a virtual assistant, the Horkey Handbook is a good choice, and costs $247 as of this writing. The course provides a ton of information, including 58 lessons and more than two hours of video. It also offers a full refund for if you aren’t satisfied.

A virtual assistant will sometimes do some data entry work, but much of the work is much more interesting than that. And it’s usually flexible.

You Don’t Want To Limit Yourself To Just Work At Home Jobs.

That’s not quite true. You might want to limit yourself to work at home jobs. Many people simply cannot picture themselves running a home business. You’re limiting your options when you do that, but that’s a choice you make.

But thinking about a home business means opening your options up tremendously. It’s not all direct sales and daycare… although those aren’t bad options at all if they’re what you will enjoy doing!

Considering a home business means opening yourself up to risk. You might fail. You might lose money.

Then again, you might make more money than you would have with a job. You might end up doing something you really, really love.

In a home business, you have the control. You decide what you do and learn how to do it. You decide when you work on it.

If you don’t work hard at a business, of course, it probably won’t go anywhere and won’t be more than a hobby.

But consider! You can start a blog about your life. Start an affiliate site about your favorite hobby. Sell crafts you make. Work as a website designer or other professional.

None of these will guarantee you an income, big or small. But it’s a lot of fun to try. Love what you write about, and you’ll give yourself a better chance than blogging about something that bores you. Even if it doesn’t work, you’ll have fun trying.

While you still have to learn about scams when you start a home business, especially if you join an opportunity, you have much more control over what happens.

Much of my own online success has come from continuing hard work. Shortcuts have nothing to do with it. Low standards have nothing to do with it. Demanding a lot from myself does. When I’ve let work slide, my business has slid. And it’s hard bringing it back up.

You can do likewise when you decide to work from home, especially if you don’t limit yourself by thinking you don’t have the skills to succeed. These can be learned, even if you don’t get them on the first try. Keep working at what you’ve chosen to have your best chance at success.

Why “Easy Work At Home” Is The Wrong Choice For Your Job Search

Why "Easy Work At Home" Is The Wrong Choice For Your Job Search

One of the big questions I get sometimes is how to find “easy work at home jobs.” The appeal of an easy work at home job is quite clear – easier to deal with the kids, low stress, but still bringing some money in. The problem is that “easy” isn’t really a good criterion when looking for work, especially from home.

“Easy Work At Home Jobs” Rarely Pays Well

Easy jobs of any sort rarely pay well at all. The more skill a job takes, the better the odds are that it will pay well.

If you want to try an easy job, try using a microtask site such as Amazon Turk. You won’t earn a lot of money doing most microtasks, but it is easy and flexible work. It can be difficult, however, to even reach minimum wage with microtasks.

Fiverr can also be easy, depending on what you offer there, but making sure that you’re getting paid adequately for the time you spend on it isn’t always easy. You have to find something that you can offer that only takes a little time but people will pay you to do. Then you need to show up well enough on Fiverr that people find your listing and choose you. Some do very well on Fiverr, but the learning curve is not easy for most. On the plus side, you can charge more than the original $5 that the site started out with.

There’s no reason for employers to pay well when a job is so easy that anyone can do it. If anyone can do it, there’s no shortage of people able to do the job. You may have a lot of competition for the easy jobs.

“Easy” Is Usually Dull

Usually when someone asks me about easy work at home jobs, they ask about data entry and such. That’s very repetitive work, generally not interesting at all. It’s very difficult to keep interested in a really boring job, which means it’s hard to work long enough to earn enough money with it.

If you’ve ever had an easy job, odds are that it was also mind-numbingly boring. A little mental or physical challenge makes any job more interesting.

“Easy” Is Vague

One person’s “easy” may not be so easy for someone else. What you find easy, someone else may find challenging. Asking for help finding “easy” work isn’t going to get you a very clear answer.

Sometimes that’s a good thing. If you find writing easy, blogging or freelance writing may appeal to you. Be prepared for writer’s block and other issues making your job more difficult… and most writing jobs still don’t pay all that well. There are writers who do quite well, but they’re in the minority. They also write the more interesting stuff, rather than merely trying to meet a word count for a short article on a subject they don’t care at all about.

“Easy” Often Leads To Scams

Many jobs that claim to be easy are in fact scams. There’s the classic mystery shopping scam where they offer you a cashier’s check to “shop” a particular bank – you keep a couple hundred for yourself, and wire the rest to the scammer. The problem is that the check is fake and now you’re on the hook for the money you sent them. Suddenly you’re in a mess that isn’t all that easy to deal with.

Scammers love the lazy. If you want easy money, you’re more likely to believe their claims when they offer it to you.

So What Should You Look For?

When you’re looking for a way to work at home, consider your skills and interests. Sure, you may want something really flexible, something easy, something you can do without paying for childcare, etc., but that shouldn’t necessarily be your first consideration. Find jobs that are a good match for your skills and interests first, then consider if they’re a match in other ways.

You can also look for work at home jobs that are flexible. If you wanted an easy job because you have small children or other obligations that may interrupt your day, flexible is probably what you were really after anyhow. I have a quick list of sites with flexible work at home jobs, and I’m sure there are many more companies out there.

If you aren’t certain whether a job is flexible, apply anyhow and ask at an appropriate point of the interview process. You might land a job that meets your needs even though the job ad didn’t emphasize that it was flexible.

Never assume that all work at home jobs are easy. They aren’t. People work at home in very technical jobs as well. One of my sisters did software development from home for a time, before deciding that working at home wasn’t for her.

There are work at home jobs that require advanced degrees, and ones that don’t care about your education. There are work at home jobs that require significant experience, and work at home jobs that require no experience. With today’s technology, just about any job that doesn’t require your physical presence in a particular space has the potential to be done at home.

How Do I Find A Work At Home Job?

To get started looking for a work at home job when you don’t know where to start, check out my post about getting started working from home. It has a lot of tips that might help you get things moving with a more realistic view of what to expect.

If you still go for an easy work at home job, consider it a stepping stone to better work, especially if it doesn’t pay well. Much as I discourage anyone from accepting less than minimum wage as a pay rate, I can understand why it’s sometimes necessary to do something so easy that the pay is absurdly low, just to get any money coming it. Just don’t accept it in the long run.

Freelancing 101 – Freelancing For Beginners

Freelancing 101 - Freelancing For Beginners

Freelancing has become a very popular way to earn money, whether as your primary income or as a side gig. People appreciate the flexibility the freelance lifestyle gives them. The hard part is often getting started. This freelancing for beginners guide may help you find your first gigs and get things moving.

What’s So Great About Freelancing?

There are many things about freelancing that people find appealing. When freelancing works, it’s pretty wonderful.

Great pay – Once you know how to set your rates, pay for freelancers can be higher than working for someone else.

Flexible work – So long as you satisfy the needs of your clients, you’re the boss. Work when you want, where you want, using the tools you prefer.

Lots of options – You have many options when starting a freelance business. Here’s a list of freelance business ideas to get you started.

What Parts Of Freelancing Are Difficult For Beginners?

Getting your freelance career started isn’t always that easy for beginners. There are a lot of challenges you must face.

Getting started – Your first clients may be very difficult to find. Jobs may be few, far between, and may not pay as much as you would like.

Getting paid – Clients can be slow to pay for the work you do. Sometimes one won’t pay at all.

Lack of benefits – If you need medical insurance, you have to find it yourself as a freelancer, and it can be expensive.

Self-motivation – It’s all up to you to get it all done. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the mood or not when you have a promised deadline. Sometimes this means working long hours on a project that isn’t going right.

Create Your Freelance Portfolio

A solid portfolio is key to getting clients. They need to see the work you’ve done before they’re ready to hire you.

Your portfolio should contain a variety of examples of your work. You don’t want it all to look alike, as that won’t show the range of your skills. A sample of your work demonstrating each of the skills will build client confidence in your abilities.

Your portfolio should show your best work. If you consider a sample merely adequate, it’s probably not a great choice for your portfolio. A portfolio should impress potential clients.

Your portfolio should be available online. Setting up a website or having someone set one up for you is not terribly difficult, and will make it easier to show clients your portfolio. A professional website is a vital tool for most freelancers these days.

Set Your Pricing

Setting your prices as a freelancer can be difficult. It’s tempting for a lot of beginners to set their prices too low so that it’s easier to get work. This should only be done with caution, as it can be difficult to raise your prices later. You should always try to get paid what your work is worth.

How you set your prices is up to you. Your rate should take into consideration that you probably won’t work 40 hours a week on paid projects. Much of your time will be spent looking for projects, especially in the early days. Most freelancers choose either an hourly or a project rate. Each has advantages and disadvantages.

Clients often like the project rate because they know upfront what they need to pay you for your work. The disadvantage to you is that you don’t get more money if the project is more difficult than you expected. On the plus side, if it’s easier than expected, you just earned more money in less time. Your project rate should be based on what you would like to earn per hour and how many hours you think the project will take, even if you don’t share those numbers with the client.

Hourly is good because you’re getting paid for how long the project takes you. If you’re fast, that gives you time to take on more projects.

Hourly makes many clients nervous because they don’t want to be on the hook for more money than was estimated at the start. It’s good for the freelancer, however, as they get paid for however long the work takes. You will need to carefully track your work hours so that the client can see where the time went if they ask.

However, you set your pricing, make sure you require a down payment from clients at the start of your project. This is protection for you if payment in full is difficult to get later.

Get Ready To Work

While you can work wherever you want as a freelancer, you should have a good home office setup for regular use. This is a space you can work when you need to be undisturbed.

A dedicated room with a door you can close is ideal, but not possible for all freelancers. Some set up space in their bedroom; others use the kitchen table because that’s the only practical spot they have.

Your workspace should have all the tools you need to be productive easily accessible. This may include your computer, internet access, printer, reference materials, and so forth.

It also makes sense to look into setting up accounts with various tools to make your freelance life easier.

Toggl, for example, is a time tracking tool many find useful. The basic version is free, and paid plans are reasonable. You can set up tasks and time how long you work on each.

Slack is very popular for teams, but may not be suitable for all freelancers. There’s only so much an individual can do with Slack. If your clients use Slack, however, it’s a good way to keep in contact with them. Independent workers can use Slack to join communities of other independent workers, so that you have someone to chat with during the day.

Asana is for project management and can help you whether you’re working alone or as part of a team. Set it up with due dates for your projects and tasks. You can view everything on a calendar, making it easier to see where you’re overscheduled and where you have openings. The basic version is free and allows up to 15 people on a team.

Job Boards Make Freelancing Easier For Beginners

There are a lot of freelancing job boards you can consider using. They aren’t just for beginners, but they make it a lot easier to find work.

This is a selection of websites you can look at for freelance work. Some specialize in particular types of work, such as writing or tech. Others offer regular work as well as freelance, and you may need to narrow your search on them.

Upwork
Linkedin Profinder
Flexing It
People Per Hour
ProBlogger Job Board
Freelance Writing
We Work Remotely
Working Nomads
Virtual Vocations
Stack Overflow
Sologig
Smashing Jobs
WP Hired
Local Solo
Toptal
Places To Find Freelance Writing Gigs – a list I created.

Get Paid

Your contract with clients should make it completely clear when you expect to be paid for your work. Clients won’t always pay on time, so having penalties for late payment spelled out in your contracts will help you deal with that. Freelancer’s Union has a contract creator you may find helpful.

A part of getting paid on time is taking a partial payment upfront. If a project will take a long time, invoice your clients during the project as well. This way you don’t have to worry about collecting the entire payment at the end, when some clients tend to become forgetful.

Invoicing and accounting are important to the health of your freelance business, and there are some wonderful tools for that. Freshbooks has been around for a while and does a good job.  It will help you send out invoices and estimates, track time and expenses, and accept credit card payments.

If you want a free invoicing software, try Wave. It charges for credit card processing, bank payment processing, and payroll. The invoicing and accounting sides are completely free. You can use it on your computer or use mobile invoicing and receipt scanning through its apps.

Keep It Legal

A freelance business is still a business, and in most areas you will need a business license. If you aren’t seeing clients in your home, this is usually a simple process. If you have people coming to your home, that’s where it can get more complicated, as you may need to show that you will not be bringing an excess of traffic into the neighborhood.

You may also need to register a business name. In many places, if your business name is simply your name, it’s not a concern. If you want a different name, you probably have to register it.

Taxes are another concern. If you’re doing at all well with your freelance business, it is a very good idea to pay quarterly taxes. This way you will not need to pay a huge sum at tax time, and it helps you avoid tax penalties.

Keep receipts for anything you want to deduct from your taxes. They might be important.

Fear Is Normal

Freelancing is a scary business for everyone, not just freelancers. It takes time to get enough clients, and even experienced freelancers sometimes won’t have enough. You have to keep on top of things.

Use that fear. It’s a push to work a little harder. Send out more proposals. Learn something new that will improve your skills. Get out of your comfort zone.

Final Freelancing For Beginners Tips

Don’t overload yourself when you’re a beginning freelancer. You do not need to take on every possible client. Overloading your schedule is a sure path to failure.

Keep business hours, and try not to work too often outside of them. There will be times when it’s necessary, but you need downtime too. Don’t let overwork ruin your enthusiasm.

How Do You Get Started Working From Home?

How Do You Get Started Working from Home?

I get a lot of people asking me how to get started working from home. They know they want to work at home, but have no clue where or how to start looking, even after finding this site. Sometimes they don’t have the foggiest notion of what kind of work they want to do from home.

Saying that you want to get started working from home is really vague. People who ask that and give no further information can be difficult to help sometimes. They have no idea what they want to do and expect me to come up with the right job without knowing anything about their skills or interests.

When I have very little information, I usually give very basic answers. Sometimes that’s all that is needed anyhow. If you’re wondering where the work at home job leads are, take a look at the Work at Home Jobs section of this website.

Ah, but that’s not terribly helpful to those who really don’t know what they want to do. How do you get to the point where you can start looking for a particular work at home job?

Look At Your Expectations Before You Get Started Working From Home

Despite the myths, working at home isn’t easy. So many people just want to be pointed in the right direction and have it handed to them, and that’s just not going to happen. When you want something in life you can’t sit around waiting for it to happen. You have to do what it takes to get started working from home.

Expect to have to work at looking for a job. You probably wouldn’t get the first outside the home job you apply for, so why should you expect that for a work at home job?

Don’t assume that you’ll be making big bucks from a work at home job. That’s one of the big reasons people get scammed so easily. Visions of easy money make people lose all common sense. Many work at home jobs don’t pay spectacularly well unless it’s a more in demand and hard to find skill. And most home businesses can take anywhere from months to years to become profitable, IF they ever do… no matter what the hype says.

What Do You Want To Do?

Just as in looking for an outside the home job, it really helps to know what kind of work at home job you’re looking for. What are you qualified for? Do you have any relevant experience?

It’s all well and good to say, “Well, I’d like to do customer service, or maybe data entry or even assemble stuff from home, just so long as I get paid.” That is, if you want to fail.

Don’t be vague. And don’t just think about the classic work at home jobs. There are a lot more possibilities out there.

Software developers work at home. Graphic designers work at home. Medical coders work at home. There are many work at home jobs that require significant education and experience.

Really Look At Your Experience.

It’s extra hard landing a work at home job if you lack experience. There’s rarely any face to face training unless the company has strict location requirements.

Experience always helps. It doesn’t matter what kind of job you’re looking for. Employers love experience. This doesn’t mean you have to have experience before you can work from home, but it’s a help.

You don’t necessarily need the exact job title as the one you’re going for. Some companies get very creative with their job titles. Other jobs have a number of common variations.

Work On Your Resume.

The best resumes are targeted to the individual job, not just a generic resume for a particular field. But you should have one that is generally targeted toward what you’re seeking so that it doesn’t take too long to customize it for each application. You want to target it to each individual employer’s needs.

If you’re considering two or more very distinct types of jobs to do from home, create a resume based around each. A software developer who would also consider working as a technical writer at home will need a different resume for each of those, to emphasize the very different skills those two jobs require.

Work On Your Cover Letter.

You may not always need one, but it’s good to have a cover letter available as a way to introduce yourself when possible. Don’t talk about wanting to work at home for more time with your family and that kind of stuff; it’s not relevant to potential employers, any more than saying you want to work to support your family would be for applying to an outside the home job.

Just as with your resume, have a generic one you can customize as needed.

Put A Salt Shaker On Your Desk.

No, you don’t have to do this literally. But when you’re about to start looking at work at home opportunities, you need to be prepared to take things with a grain of salt and a whole lot of skepticism. Probably go through the entire shaker pretty fast.

Work at home scams outnumber legitimate opportunities by far. I try to keep things clean here, but I can’t promise to get it perfect. And if you’re searching around and about the internet, you’re probably going to run into a lot of scams.

When in doubt, start by reading the job ad carefully. Does it sound too good to be true? That’s a red flag. Does the visible contact information match up with the actual employer? Some scams use a real employer’s name to fool you but have a Gmail or other email address for the contact. Be careful out there.

Start Looking.

With a good notion of the kind of job you’re looking for, it’s time to quit preparing and start looking. You’re not going to get anywhere if you don’t take action. This is the most important step to successfully get started working from home.

Don’t pay to apply for a work at home job. Very few legitimate companies charge applicants for a background check – only consider these companies if you really think you’re a good match and can risk the cost of the background check.

Once you’re applying, it can be quite the waiting game. It is not at all uncommon for work at home job hunts to take months, sometimes over a year. I’m not going to promise you an easy time finding a job. Lots of other people probably want the same jobs you do, and you can’t all have them.

It can pay off to apply to some employers every few months. Don’t overdo it or you’ll be an annoyance, but a time can come when sending in a fresh application is the right move.

Finally, if your family is desperate for money, do consider an outside the home job if that’s what you need to keep financially afloat. I see too many people saying they need a work at home job desperately so they can pay their bills. If that’s you, consider finding an outside the home job while you hunt for work at home.

You may have to work at night if you’re married and can’t afford childcare. You may have to find a friend to trade childcare with if you don’t have any way to pay for childcare and no one else to help you.

If you need income be realistic about it and remember that you can find work at home later, without such extreme financial pressure. Desperation means you’re more likely to make stupid mistakes.

Work at Home Ad Translator

Work at Home Ad Translator

Have you ever wondered what some of the more common phrases in scammy work at home ads really mean? If you took most of them literally, you’d expect the entire world to be rich, just from the sheer lack of effort made in various home businesses. I’ve created this work at home ad translator to interpret what many of these ads really mean… or at least how I see them.

Some scammy work at home ads can be very similar to legitimate work at home ads. That has always been a part of the challenge. Sometimes you have to take a look at the awful scams out there and mock them.

Sarcasm ahead.

No Selling Required!

It’s not selling if you just tell everyone you meet that it’s a great product, right? Your family, friends, acquaintances, coworkers, random people you meet on the street, kids, neighbor’s dog and so forth should be grateful that you take the time to tell them about these wonderful products. They will beat a path to your door if you do so.

No Experience Required

That’s right, no experience required, and you’re not going to get much in the way of experience here. Unless you count the life experience of losing money to a scam. That’s worth something, right?

Make Money Doing Online Surveys

You don’t mind that most will pay in pennies or points, do you? Very few online surveys will be worth your time, although a few will pay well.

Free website that we offer to all our suckers… err, members. Hope you don’t mind that it looks like every other member’s website. And just wait until you see our upsells!

We don’t care that we can allow as many people as we want to download our electronic product. Matter of fact, we’ve done that already. But if you think we’re limiting our sales you might forget to do your due diligence. So hurry up, will ya?

Earn Money On Autopilot

Rather like earning money while you sleep. It can happen, but it’s not going to be as fast or as easy for most people as the ad claims… and it might not happen at all. The odds of it happening with this particular product are probably worse than trying to earn money on autopilot by building your own business.

No Limit To Your Earnings

Um, you do know that includes a lower limit, right? You’re as likely to earn nothing as something, not to mention the money you’ll lose trying this.

We bought an ad there once. We’re not exactly welcome back.

Email Me For More Information

If I posted here what the opportunity is, you’d call it out as a scam. This way I get your email address. You’ll never get rid of me now!
