Companies are always on the lookout for people to help them “go digital” by typing paper documents into a computer. Many outsource the task of inputting data to update their records on a regular basis.
What you bring to the table: A computer, typing accuracy and speed.
Expect to earn: $6 to $20 per hour.
How to get started: While jobs exist, demand is high and scams plentiful. The Work at Home Jobs page at homewiththekids.com lists companies that hire regularly. Also search Craigslist and Google (type in “online data input jobs”), and cold-call companies’ human resources departments to apply.
