Answer: hi Deepak, thanks for your post. I am confused now as when I have started to offer jobs!! I do not have any answer. I am only responsible in giving guidance to people, attending their queries. You can contact to any of the firms in the field of BPO, that are working as outsourcing partner for some foreign based companies, you may also go for medical transcription service and even you can go for data processing & entry works, only if you think you are not creative.
I can understand from your message here that you have a good typing speed, it is good. But it will be great to know your accuracy level as well. If you think your typing speed is your only strength or you want to work online only on typing speed, then straightly go for data entry works. You may acomplish much more work than doing some article writing. You can find these data entry jobs from the BPO or data entry firms around in your area or search the web for some suitable jobs.
Truly speaking it makes me happy to find so many people interested to do some extra works at their spare time. Being more productive is part of human religion, I find you all great here!
