Work from home typing jobs
Work from home typing jobs have been around for ever , starting in the early 50s even as ‘home memographers’ as featured in older magazines (Most large magazines had ad space devoted to these ads).
Now that we’re age of the internet , companies that place ads trying to entice people to buy into their program that supposedly teaches you how to make money at home by just typing on your computer.
This type of business opportunity is much harder, and much more complex to deal with than a simple scam, as there are so many types of these programs out there. For instance , medical data transcription is a very legitimate ‘typing job’ that people do , it requires several months of education to do. This is very different from a offer that teaches you how to create a money making blog , which then is different from creative copywriting.
Simply mindless typing into a computer just doesn’t exist , however there are tons of opportunities out there for someone to do smaller odd jobs online for a little bit of money. If you sign up to our newsletter (featured at the bottom of this page) you’ll get a free list of dozens of ways to make money from home, all for free.
One such program we talk at lengths about is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk which allows people to take small , odd jobs from various companies and individuals. These tasks can be as simple as following someone on Facebook, or as complex as developing a written sales campaign. Compensation can range anywhere from a nickle, all the way up to tens of thousands of dollars.
So , these are two examples of jobs that you can do from your own home that only involve typing.
There are many others , too numerous to list , however here’s a short list we compiled.
- Data Entry
- Medical Transcription
- Menial Task
- Copy Writing
- Blog Copy Writing
- Social network connecting
- Per-Task computer work (links , blog posting ,ect)
- Product reviews
- Article writing
These various types of typing jobs cover quite a wide array , as well as make up a huge skill set , ranging from nothing to a degree in English , or sales.
One major thing to consider is the cost of the program. My dad signed on to a medical data transcription school , the total cost was around $1,500 or so. Once he had his ‘license’ from them and had completed all the required education , it then took time to find doctors/hospitals to partner with. In this case ,it was a great choice , as depending on his typing speed, his income would start out at $8 per hour , and as he got quicker and better at typing the data, he increased his income to around $18 per hour.
On the flip side , there are many programs out there that offer ‘home courses’ for home typing jobs, one we reviewed in a earlier post had a price tag of $9595.00 which is a astronomical number. In the case of this specific program , most of the information in the so called course could be found online for free, and only about a hour worth of searching.
Be sure to be careful ,and check for reviews from other people that are doing the same thing.
