In today's lesson, let's talk about how to do data entry work. So there are lots of data entry jobs on Upwork and on different online job portals. It's one of the most common jobs you can find and easiest to get a job for.
So, first of all, what is data entry work? So there are, there are two kinds of data entry work or two kinds of work that clients consider to be data entry.
First of all what equipment do you need.
What skills do you need?
So, how do you improve your typing skills? So typing skills are very important for data entry because the faster you can type the more work you can get done, and the higher you can get paid. So you can go to a website like typingtest.com and just practice there and as you practice you should increase your words per minute or wpm. A good word per minute start off at 60 words per minute if you can type in 60 words per minute then you're above average and your, you should be good to do data entry work. And if you can reach a hundred words per minute that's even better and I usually type around a hundred words per minute. So if you can reach that speed then you can do a lot of work and get paid a lot higher.
So, where do you find jobs? You can go in upwork.com, freelancer.com, golance.com. You can even create a profile on fiverr.com and almost all the different online job portals will have data entry for work.
So, why would you do data entry work in the first place? Data entry work is easy to do. It doesn't really require skills and it doesn't require education. So you don't need to, let's say for example, enroll in one of my courses I have the VA boot camp you don't need that if you're just going to do data entry work, 'cause it's really easy to do. And you can get started on it immediately and you're only training probably would be your typing test. Increasing your typing speed.
Some reasons why not to do data entry work.
And if you are planning to become a virtual assistant or do writing work and things like that you don't want to have the low paying jobs in your Upwork profile like data entry that's a low paying job you don't want it to appear in your Upwork profile because clients are going to think that your rate is really low and they won't they won't be willing as much to pay you higher.
