Is it possible to turn your typing and word processing skills into cash?
Yes, it is possible to make money typing from home. But be careful not to fall for the many typing scams online. Don’t trust anyone who promises typing jobs that don’t require any experience. At the very least, you’ll need good typing, computer, and grammar skills.
To provide any of the legitimate typing services below, you’ll need a computer with a major word processing program such as Microsoft Word and a printer. And of course, you need typing skills, excellent spelling and grammatical skills.
Avoid ads promising a list of companies looking for typists to work from home – those lists are useless. You must also ignore web sites and ads promising data entry work. The so-called data entry work involves putting ads on Google and other search engines to promote affiliate programs (other people’s products). You can make money selling affiliate programs but you have to know what you’re doing and you can spend a lot of money on advertising. It will cost you money each time someone clicks on your ad. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can lose money very fast.
