Make Money Proofreading Or Transcribing For Scribie
Scribie is an online
transcription site and is one of the most popular transcription sites
out there at the moment. The only experience you will need is to be
able to type at a reasonable pace; you will also need to have good
written communication skills. There is also an option to obtain
proofreading or review work once you have transcribed ten files.
The process is that you
sign up and take a short test, which is not difficult. Shortly after
you will receive an email with your results and an invitation to join
up. Scribie always seem to have plenty of work available, so it's
just a matter of logging in and choosing a file to transcribe. Once
you choose a file, you have two hours to complete the file, since the
files are only six minutes long, this should be relatively easy for
someone who types at a good speed.
All the files are in
English, so you would need a good command of English grammar and
spelling. The files are six minute recordings, that you type up. For
each completed file you receive $1. So if you spend a few hours each
day on this, you could be earning $40 - $50 per week or more, and
this translates to about $200 per month. A nice little addition to
your other streams of income. There is no limit to how many jobs you
can accept and once you have done three hours worth of tapes, you
will get a $10 bonus. If you really wanted to go hard at this and do
an hour of tapes per day, you could be getting the bonus every three
days. And another big bonus is that you can cash out whenever you
like and your money will be in Paypal the next day.
Once you have
transcribed ten files; you are then eligible to do reviews and
proofread work from other transcribers, which is easier to do and
pays the same as transcribing. Once you have worked at this for a
while, your typing speed will increase and you will also be able to
apply for other transcription jobs that require experience.
Scribie is open to
people from most countries, however they do not accept applications
from countries that do not support Paypal. The files are all in
English, so anyone who speaks English as a second language may find
it challenging, however there's no harm in trying it out. Take the
test and see how you go.
There are many other
transcription sites online, however this is the first one I have
encountered where you don't need much experience. Once you get your
feet wet here, you may want to sign up for other sites that pay more.
The site that pay more generally want their applicants to have skills
in certain areas; like a legal background or an understanding of
So, there you have it.
