What Sir Tim Berners Lee Can Teach Us About Home Online Jobs

Why write about home online jobs? Well, we’ve been seeing a lot in the media about job losses, plants closing down, jobs being outsourced to cheaper economies, educated graduates not getting jobs, and baby boomers being discriminated against because of their age. The fact is that not enough jobs are being created each year to stem the increasing unemployment figures. Makes you think doesn’t it – if people can’t get jobs, how will the next generations survive?

So we thought we’d write a short article to inform people who can’t get traditional jobs, that home online jobs provide an alternative solution.

home online jobsSir Tim Berners-Lee should be happy that his brain child, the World Wide Web, is providing answers to roughly 50 million people each and every month who are searching online for home online jobs and ways to supplement their income or to replace lost income.

TimBL wishes that the internet remains accessible to everybody in the world, which means it can’t be governed by any single body. But most importantly he wants it to be free – which is a great feature for people seeking out home online jobs.

However, one point that’s outside of his control is the ease at which unscrupulous people can also set up online. So, if you’re seeking home online jobs you need to be wary, and carefully research the opportunities which interest you before paying over a single cent for anything.

Although search engines like Google. Bing and Yahoo, make the internet free to search, as TimBL intended, free search is like the lure or the bait to reel people in. Because, MOST websites (even Google) are on the internet with the intention of making money from people visiting their sites.

Getting back to the unscrupulous traders. We get frustrated when people searching for home online jobs get mislead by get-rich-quick schemes. And there are loads of them out there because there are loads of rogues trying to make a quick buck.

Data Input Jobs From Home – What Are The Alternatives?

Data input jobs from home are used by thousands of people to make some extra money to supplement their income. If you find a legitimate company they’re a great way to pocket a bit of extra cash, but they’re never likely to make you rich. Always just look at them as a supplement to your income.

Data Input Jobs From Home: What Are They?

Any job where you can sit at your computer and enter data on behalf of another company could be classed under data input jobs from home. This can include entering data for a large company that is involved in medical research, keying in data for insurance companies, and any one of thousands of other companies.

Data Input Jobs From Home: How legitimate are they?

As with any job on the internet you need to do your due diligence and thoroughly check out a company before you work with them. The internet is full of dishonest people, so any company where you have to pay them to buy a kit before you can work for them should definitely be avoided. You wouldn’t pay your employer before you started working for them would you?


Data Input Jobs From Home: Who Can Do Them?

They’re great for anyone who wants to earn some spare cash, but you obviously need to have good keyboard skills. The faster and more accurately you can type, generally means the more you’ll get paid for your skills. So they’re great for stay at home Moms who have a spare few hours in the evening, for students wanting to earn some extra cash, or for someone who wants an extra job but not the hassle of having to travel to it in order to work.

But there’s few problems involved in this business model and that’s why I suggest looking at alternatives.

Data Input Jobs From Home: The Competition

Firstly there is a huge amount of competition from people who come from countries where pay rates are very low.  For those people data input jobs from home can be a career, because sometimes they can pay them more than they’d earn in their own country doing a regular job. But it means very stiff competition if you don’t want to be working for two or three dollars an hour. Don’t get me wrong, some data input jobs from home pay more than that, but they’re probably not entry level jobs. If you’re just starting out you’re not going to land one of those jobs first off.

Data Input Jobs From Home: The Time Spent

Ask yourself this question. Is the amount of time you might spend doing data input jobs from home really worth the remuneration you’ll receive? If you’re spending all that time working on the internet and from your laptop, wouldn’t it be better to use that time to learn a skill that allows you to earn more money?

Yes, you’re not getting that extra cash in your hand, but if you look at the long term picture, a new skill that you can use anywhere online is probably a more valuable thing to have. Why not check out data input jobs from home for a different perspective on working from your computer?

Author: Jennifer Wiss

Freelance writing is a profession you can undertake from your home, your office – or indeed, from anywhere in the world.

You’ll gain knowledge and experience dealing with both simple and complex projects and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your well-researched, well-written work is helping to further the knowledge, understanding and advancement of both undergraduate and post-graduate academics, and other business professionals, worldwide.

Of course, as you choose which projects you take, you also are able to set the amount of money you are prepared to work for.

A major research company recently reported that around half of their researchers undertaking writing jobs as a supplement to their existing income. According to their statistics, these writers earn on average £1,000 – £1,500 per month – increasing to around £2,500 per month during the busy months. Around 25% of their freelance writers undertake the occasional brief, earning around £250-£500 a month on average. The remaining 25% (approx) of writers undertake freelance writing as a full time career. These writers earn on average £3,000 – £4,000 per month – which increases to around £5,000 per month during the busy period. According to that company, these income figures are realistic and attainable – they state that 10 projects at £400 per project, each taking 3 days for completion, will result in a monthly income of £4,000 before bonuses. On these figures, freelance writing is a lucrative job and an excellent way to make money from your writing skills.

Are there other projects as well as freelance writing?
