Beware of some of these so called 'Data Entry' Stuff. Someone had a horrible expereince with them.

Read the pathetic story:

"I'm not sure if this is the right place to post my message but I've recently discovered that DataEntryCompany.com is in fact a very poor and misleading Internet Marketing Strategy

On February 29th 2008, I came across a website called DataEntryCompany.com. You've probably heard of it or you wouldn't be looking at this page now. They claim that over 21,256 people worldwide who joined them are now living the life you dream of. Being curious I first googled the web for experiences others might have had with them. The articles I found all sounded surprisingly positive - gee, I now wonder who wrote these - so I registered with them, paid US$49,- using my credit card, eager to finally start making some money as promised on their website. Having received a confirmation email, I logged in on their site and started going through their instructional steps which are as follows.

Step 1.

They're of course first welcoming you to their member's area, saying they're glad that you have decided to follow your dreams of a better life and stuff like that, reminding you that this is not an hourly position and that, unlike those who work on an hourly basis, you are paid for your performance, not simply the time you invest in the program. The companies you later on choose to work with will be paying you commission. You can make money ($5 to $75) for each sale that your ad leads to.

They then ask you to check that you have what is needed to succeed, which are 4 things:

1) an active internet connection

2) concentration

3) a credit card; they suggest you keep your credit card ready in case you decide to sign up for an ad program such as Google Adwords, to help you increase your money-making potential.

4) perseverance

Step 2.

Visit ClickBank, setup a free account and tell them where all those soon-to-be-received-bank-cheques are to be sent to.

Step 3.

Setup a partner and select the industry and company you'D like to work with.

Step 4.

Have your own website. - Pardon me? What do I need my own website for?

Their explanation is that Yahoo Advertising which you will be introduced to in the next step, does not allow more than one linking partner per URL per keyword. By having your own multi-page website, you have access to many URLs and you can - as they say it - thus join many different companies to your site.

If you already have your own website, you're a step ahead of the game. If you don't, no problem. DataEntryCompany is there to help you out. They offer you your own website for $4.95 per month, saying that "that's a real steal!"

Well, I do have my own site, in fact I have several, so there's no additional cost for me there. But let's take a look at the next step, shall we?

The next step was my wake-up call and says it's necessary to sign up with Yahoo! Search Marketing which, you've guessed it, is far from free. Without going into full details as to what Yahoo! Search Marketing exactly is, I can tell you that each time a web visitor clicks on your ad, a certain amount of money is deducted from your Search Marketing account which you have to pay for.

I have setup both Yahoo! Search Marketing and Google Adwords accounts in the past when one of my previous employers asked me to and believe me, it's definitely not something you can learn in a day, let alone minutes if you're not familiar with internet marketing.

My advise is, do not get involved with DataEntryCompany.

Cheers, Danny"

You decide! There could be genuine ones but beware.

@poster, I personally will not suscribe to you calling anyone before they give you more information on data entry.

Look, the data entry that requires membership are probably paid surveys and really, they do not fit into what you can do as a Nigerian. It is very simple to work online and get paid for it. SImply go to www.odesk.com and www.elance.com and you can sign up for a freelance data entry Job. Odesk does not require you to pay any membership fees at all, although you'll be required to pass a Readiness Test.

Never pay membership fees t sign up for a "work From Home" opportunity. There are a lot of scams out there. However, elance and guru.com charges you a little token per year

I wish you goodluck

Bryan,

Why asking the poor guy to call you before you give out the data entry sites. Or you want him to give you money? Why dont you post the sites here for all to see.

NAIRALANDERS BEWARE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried a 'data entry' thing online some two years ago and I can tell you that it amounted to nothing. This people take money from you to start giving you this so called 'data entry jobs' and what they ask you to do is complicated, actually just a waste of time and not as simple as they make it look in thier adverts.

Don't waste your money on 'online data entry jobs'.
