Every day the work at home world is only growing, as thousands of Internet users are discovering the benefits of working part-time or full-time online (or just for the sake of extra quick cash).
We have been studying, testing and reviewing various web-based jobs for years now but it has been only three or four months since we started doing transcription and typist stuff.
This is one of the newest opportunities on the market (especially with no geo-restrictions), so let’s take a look at one of these offers – TranscribeMe.com.
This work at home job is open to applicants internationally.
What is TranscribeMe.com?
TranscribeMe.com helps thousands of companies, which need to digitize their audio files. No matter if these are phone calls, lectures, open conferences or other important meetings – TranscribeMe staff can take care of such jobs and transcribe audio files, i.e. listen to the tapes and accurately type a text.
They are working hard to fulfilling the needs of their clients (even a phone app has been released) and now they are also hiring new workers.
Applying for a transcription job
If this online job sounds good to you, then you should definitely fill out an application form, watch a how-to video and carry out a test transcription. These steps won’t take a lot of your time and in the matter of several minutes you will be able to start taking up the typist work.
Just to test that this opportunity is for international members, I went to the site and registered myself. This site is working and I have already finished my first 2-minute task.
The website is very user-friendly and easy to perceive. Users receive $30 for every hour of audio turned into text. I have done 2 minutes, this means that 7-8 minutes of my work transformed into $1. If you do the math, you will come to a conclusion that workers receive $6-$8 by performing tasks at TranscribeMe.com.
Payments are sent via PayPal every Thurthday ($10 minimum).
Quicktate.com is yet another resource of jobs for transcribers, which we reviewed recently. They are accepting people from any country of the world and provide generous pay for your work.
Roundup and final thoughts
To tell the truth, this is one of the easiest online jobs you could possibly get. They are still working on the website and should be getting more tasks for their workers.
