It’s a surprise to see a website like National Data Entry (NationalDataEntry.com) operating these days, as the work from home data entry niche has long been exposed. This scheme has been busted and revamped so many times over that it seems silly for “Alisha Carter” to throw her website into the mix.
At one point these Data Entry sites were so prevalent that Google banned them from their sponsored ads listings refusing to accept any ads that made mention of data entry work. The reason is because the owners of these types of sites are not actually selling data entry jobs, what they’re offering is a sneaky misrepresentation of affiliate marketing.
Basically what they do is define any portion of affiliate marketing that involves writing as data entry. So for instance part of affiliate marketing is running ads on search engines which involves doing some descriptive writing to entice searchers to click on your ad.
This is something that they would call data entry even though it’s quintessential marketing which requires upfront investments, experience, and a clear understanding of what you’re doing. Likewise, article marketing is another area that they misrepresent.
Yes, writing and submitting articles online to promote products can make you money, however all your income is commission based. This means that you need to research a product, write well about it, then wait for a customer to read your article and make a purchase. Then and only then will you get paid.
This is the general gist of how scam companies like National Data Entry operate; there are many more examples of how they misrepresent elements of internet marketing as data entry opportunities but this is the basic gist.
Customers have also reported that as part of their real jobs, National Data Entry will link to sections of popular sites, like Yahoo! Jobs and Craigslist. This is pretty outrageous since you don’t need to pay someone $49 to tell you to go on Yahoo! And search for data entry work.
This is just another example of why you should avoid companies like this especially if you’re searching for real work for which you’d earn hourly or pre assigned pay. If you want real work at home jobs the best places to look are freelance websites where employers post long and short term jobs for workers to apply for.
