Data Entry Work From Home: The Real Score

More and more people are lured into taking online data entry jobs. Earn easy money by typing data online, at home, with no experience required is their golden promise. Doesn't they sound like one of those work at home entry of data misleading offers?

If you are offered a job, which puts you at the top of the chain without much requirements and documents to submit, would you be able to say no? If you could, say work at your own pace and still get decent pay, would you be able to resist? And who wouldn't want to take a job that would let you spend more time with your family, go out with friends anytime you wish, or watch your favorite daytime TV shows? I would think none.

Data entry jobs are one of the hottest and most in-demand job items today. To think that this finding does not even include similar key phrases such as 'online data entry', and 'data entry jobs', and search hits record on Google, Yahoo, MSN, and many other search engines is totally mind-boggling.

Like any curious Pete, I couldn't help but wonder how a seemingly sweat-free job like this gets all the attention it has. Logically I thought they are either work from home scams or real jobs. But there's only one way to find out.

So I conducted my own research and started looking into the most popular data entry programs found on Clickbank's Marketplace. And from my research, I found several interesting discoveries.

When I visited the sites of these data entry programs, I was greeted by a lot of E-books. These E-books or training materials contain tips and guidelines on how to make money by selling Click-bank products and other items using Google AdWord. To earn money you have to pay a registration fee. Once you avail of the registration payment, they will send you training materials in the form of readings or E books. You will of course have to read through the contents and then convince others to do the same. If you manage to seal a deal, you earn money. If you don't, you must try and try until you make a sale. Not only that, you also pay for every ad you put up. Unfortunately, they won't tell you any of these in the beginning.

When I learned about these, I was shocked in disbelief. This kind of job is not data entry at all but affiliate marketing masking under the guise of data entry work from home misleading offers.

Well, to show you the real score, I am not saying that all the typing jobs are bad. What ticks my temper is the fact that their job advertising is misleading and too good to be true. And dishonest advertising is the road on which scams tread. Nonetheless, I still believe that there are genuine data entry jobs out there; you just have to do your assignment the best that you can.

How would you know if a program is a mere data entry work from home scams? I would have to say, look for client and business reviews on the program you are considering. Most of what you will find are from real people so you would have a platform to begin with.
