work from home questionsData entry is the process of typing information or data provided by the client into a form, list, document, chart or even onto a website.

Although rare, there are still some data entry jobs that require the worker to look through hard copies of printed material to ferret out the proper information that needs to be entered into the document.

What qualifications do I need to be a data entry worker?

Attention to detail and accurate typing skills are two of the top qualities of a successful data entry home worker.

These skills will affect your hourly pay rate.

What is the profile of the average data entry worker?

Moms and dads who want to stay home and raise their children, people who have disabilities that make the logistics of getting to and from work difficult, and residents of rural or isolated areas where work of any kind is hard to find are some of the people making a living as data entry home workers.

Of course, for any home-based worker, it’s wise to find a quiet, well lighted area of your home in which to do your assignments. The more work you produce the higher your paycheck will be. Therefore, it is advisable to find a comfortable chair in a spot with few distractions to set up your workspace.

Each job will be unique and each client will have a special pay rate so although there are no guarantees on how much money one can make doing data entry work, most people find it quite lucrative.
