The very first “money making program” I came across in my humble beginnings was – DATA ENTRY BUSINESS. It sounded good, solid, easy and with literally no knowledge required.
They say all you have to do is to fill out simple web forms and can easily make $30 – $50 per form or so. No internet knowledge etc. required. Sounds like a great idea for someone like me who has no prior experience, right?
Oh boy, was I disappointed! I tried very hard to make it work, but I have to say the instructions were anything but easy to follow for a newbie. When I read them now I have to laugh, because now they seem very easy, but back then it was a nightmare. Basically, I never got it to work and called it quits after about 1 1/2 months.
What I found out afterwards? – Data Entry Jobs are nothing else but promoting other peoples products in sponsored Google ads with pay-per-click. You don’t need a Data Entry Membership to do that! Also, I find it incredible that these companies make it sound so easy! PPC is anything but! It is a whole science in itself, it is what so many manuals have been written about, what every marketer out there is trying to master.
To me now it feels like I was set up, and potentially could have lost a lot of money. When they said you can make $30 – $50 per form, that is if you actually make a sale. It doesn’t count in though the money you have to spend to get there.
So, my experience has taught me to stay clear from Data Entry Jobs.
