Data Entry Job Idea That’s Free
Data Entry and a Free Job Online Idea
Have you been poking under every rock on the Net to try and find a way to earn online doing data entry type work? I am sure you’ve come across programs that offer “employment” – but the catch is… they want you to PAY to get a job with them. Pay to get a job?? OK… that’s weird.
Are we not all a little bitter about the amount of scams out there? I’ve been taken for $34.99 about 4 times trying to check out some of these so-called data entry “jobs”. I’m actually embarrassed to tell you that. But I have no other way to “try” some of these programs than to pay and see how it works and what has to be done.
Somewhere along the lines though…..I got jaded. Very jaded. I believed in nothing. Stopped looking for almost 7 months. I’d talk to my friends in the “work at home arena” about data entry work or programs that earn and they were trying different things. Some were working….and some were simply scams.
However, I did start missing the “hunt”. So back in the trenches I went.
Wow….what a difference 7 months makes. There are a lot of “do-able” free programs out there. Many are truly basic data entry. If you can type – you can do them.
I did a lot of research on a program called MemoLink and signed up. The basics or premise is that you sign up for offers that interest you. Simply click on say….”Netflix” (I like movies!) – and fill out their offer. This is key – many offers do not require a credit card, some do, but anytime you sign up for a trial offer – be sure to keep track of when you signed up and your sign up info. You’ll want to cancel any free trial offers before the trial period is over. But many of these trial offers pay good money. Some offers might ask for a delivery fee of a few bucks – but you can typically make double that back in pay from Memolink. I paid $4.50 for an offer and made $10.00 – so I cleared $5.50 and got something free to boot! They offer rebates on shipping and handling that earn you as well!
I was impressed with their training materials and videos as well. Can’t say I’ve had very many programs in the past that were free that offered help and support. Two members even did their own video and they walk you through step-by-step.
They even offer two more ways to earn that don’t even require YOU to fill out offers. You can do searches and scratch and wins too.
There will always be people the poo-poo everything. ALWAYS. I started to turn into one of those people. Thank goodness I didn’t, because I’m on my way to making $78 my first month with MemoLink.
Offers range from .50 to $50 – just track what you’re doing.
My experience in the end is that I did earn. I earned over $75 in one month for around 5 hours work. That’s around $15 an hour! To me – totally worth it. I was able to sign my 6 year old up for dance lessons. Something I would not have been able to do without that money.
Obviously for data entry work, you will need a computer. It need not be new or have the latest processor in it, but it does need to be in good working condition with a keyboard that won’t cause wrist problems. Ergonomics are an important element for anyone that does a large volume of typing. Because you will need to access to the Memolink website, you will need internet access, and a valid email address. It’s absolutely necessary to sign up as a member of Memolink in order for you to process offers (and for you to view pay outs on each offer) and for your orders to be tracked so that you’re paid correctly.
The more offer forms you fill out, the more you will earn. Simple as that. You can also earn by referring others that would like to do this kind of work. MemoLink.
