Nowadays most of the people are more interested in freelancing doing data entry work. Because this task is easy. So everyone wants to do it. But we should know one more thing. If everyone wants to become a freelancer by doing data entry only, then the number of freelancers working in other skills will decrease; On the other hand, data entry projects will have more workers than jobs, so the chances of a freelancer getting a proper job are very low. This problem still exists today, so not everyone can quickly achieve success in data entry. Many people are panting day after day by submitting applications to projects, but not getting projects. Then some give up on freelancing, while others try to learn something else. Let’s first know that to do data entry work

You must have these skills to work in data entry. But take a look, these are usually taught in 3 months duration or 6 months duration Computer Operating and Official Courses.
Data entry has some similar categories, such as—
1. Call Center

Call Center Customer Care Manager jobs are also available in Bangladesh. But you can also work as a freelancer as a call center customer care manager of a foreign company. Here your job is to revise calls and give calls. There are inbound and outbound calls to work with.
There are many foreign companies like Bangladesh, which receive many calls and many employees work to revise those calls. They also sometimes hire freelancers to work at a fixed hourly rate every day. If your English speaking is good then you can do it too. Collecting work or projects is key.
There are plenty of language translation freelancing marketplaces. The main task here is to translate a text into another language and write it down.
Suppose a book is written in Japanese and the book’s owner wants to make the book available in several other languages. In this case he has to take the help of a translation agency. Or hire someone who knows 2-3 languages at the same time. If from Japanese to Chinese, the book owner will do it from Japanese to English and from English to Chinese. This would require one 36 Japanese and one Chinese person, both of whom know their language and English.
On the other hand, if you know English and know Chinese and Japanese or any other language, then you can do language translation work on these languages as well. There is a lot of demand for such jobs.
Sometimes we see in television commercials a male or female voice is heard from behind the camera, perhaps saying something about the product. Or a video is made of a story, with the story being subtitled by someone saying it in a nice voice. So these are voice over jobs. So if your English pronunciation is like American and smooth, then you can do voice over in their various videos. These projects are more available on Fiverr.com marketplace.
Audio transcription refers to converting an audio file into text. In this case it can be any audio file or video file. Suppose there is a 5-minute video of English news on BBC News. There you are told that you understand everything the news presenter is saying and write it down in Microsoft Word in English. I will give you 50 dollars or 4 thousand rupees. If you have experience then you can definitely do the job.
So this is called the work of audio transcription.
Article writing is essentially the act of writing. If you have no problem writing English and let you write about the topic that you understand well
If so, you can definitely write. These are basically the tasks of article writing. There are thousands of such projects in marketplaces where different buyers hire freelancers to write their websites.
Suppose a buyer has a “Health Tips” website, where he writes daily with various health tips and suggestions. So it is necessary to have a good understanding of health. And so he works with someone who knows a little about health; On the other hand, he can get ideas for writing by researching other websites on Google.
If asked Write an article of 1000 words about Weight Loss. Then you must research about weight loss on google and write the tips as your own. Copying from any website is a punishable offense. That can’t be done. So this way you can work with any buyer for a long time. Data entry jobs are generally long-term.
In fact, no buyer will regularly ask you to do any specific tasks on data entry projects. Here you are working as an assistant. He will let you do different things. Such as email checking, replying, writing something in a word file of Google Docs or making a calculation in an Excel sheet, collecting the contact address of a company owner in a search core in Google, registering on a website, uploading a picture, calculating an order on an e-commerce website. You may have to do all such work to begin with.
So many are worried that how to learn data entry job. Actually there is nothing to learn here. Buyer will teach you the task you will be given through screen share. After starting the data entry project, the buyer will give you a training of 1 hour. This is not a professional training as such. Communicate your work through video calls or screen sharing with TeamViewer software. That’s the diameter. You just need to know good English, so that you can read and write in English. However, in the case of data entry, grammar mistakes cannot be made while writing English. It’s okay if you make a grammar mistake while just chatting with Bayer. But if he allows something to be written, then no mistake can be made.
As a suggestion I would say a fresher can apply for data entry jobs. See how it feels for a few days. You can learn something else as well. If you proceed in this way, your experience of collecting work will also increase, while you can also learn another work. So, you can do two things simultaneously.
