One in-demand job for those who want to work from home is data entry. The internet has created a huge demand for information, and that information needs to be processed by somebody. Truth is, there just never seems to be enough people to deal with the constant work of the input of all of this information. Companies have turned to freelancers for help with this dilemma.

If you are a fast typist, you do not get bored with repetitive work, and you are familiar with several different computer programs, you can probably do very well at data entry work. You may have to sift through many job listings to find a good data entry position where you can work from home.

Find a reliable freelancer website, that lists jobs from good employers. If you find a good employer, you may not have to look for a data entry job again, as businesses that are in need of data entry freelancers seem to keep good help around long-term.


Data entry jobs are extremely high demand positions, therefore, a good one may be difficult to find. The key is to keep searching. Search engines may not be the very best places to look for data entry work. The market is completely saturated, therefore, typing in ‘data entry’ will probably bring up pages and pages of useless information on the search engines. The best places to search for good data entry positions will probably be on a reliable freelancing website.

Perfect your job proposals for bidding on data entry positions on freelancing websites. Of course you will want to come across as professional. Remember, also, that you may have to work for lower wages than you originally expected, until you get your business off the ground. Once you have built a reputation as being a solid data entry worker, you can get those higher wages. Your good reputation is built with experience and by finishing jobs within deadlines.

Data entry can be the perfect type of work for those who want to work from home. It is in high demand and the demand does not seem to ever be disappearing. Find data entry positions on freelancing websites, bid on jobs, always be professional and never give up. The work is there if you are willing to look for it.
