    The bidding sites are still a good source of that kind of work, but the pay is horrible. Have you considered GPT and crowdsourcing sites instead? They break things down into manageable chunks of work that could be appropriate and generate a little cash... though the rates suck, again. That's the problem with "unskilled" work.

    try fiver.com
    But here is the thing. there are alot of people already working in this that would love to have more work, and you are trying to find a bunch of unskilled people work in a field they have no experience in. Might be difficult.

    But just because someone cannot work hard, does not mean they cannot work. Try looking to local recruitment agencies. Some will specialise on finding job placements for people physically, or even mentally handicapped.

    Freelancing will be a lot easier to chase rather than actual jobs. Please for your own sanity don't get into the whole CAPTCHA entry crap or what most people on affiliate sites would call "data entry" work.

    1) DO NOT PAY TO WORK FOR A COMPANY
    I'm not sure how many of these are still around but I remember back when I started out, a lot of these so called "work from home" opportunities were coming around. To work for them, all you had to do was have a headset and send them $19.99!

    You will more than likely never see the money you sent them back and will probably never hear from them. If you're lucky, they'll send you a list of other companies that supposedly hire data entry workers.

    2) Getting Started? Prepare To Swim
    Finding jobs that are worth the time if you have basic English skills are like swimming through a cesspool of just crap. You'll find plenty of .50c to $1 per 100 word opportunities out there.

    Most of those jobs will come from boards like this or other marketing forums with job sub-forums on them. I definitely don't recommend trying to make a career out of writing for peanut clients because you're facing off vs a lot of competition when a job ad goes out.

    I'm not sure how many CAPTCHA entry positions are even available anymore. Don't most of them use imagery now and are auto-generated?

    If you have plenty of time on your hands, write content for yourself. You'll make far more money and you don't have to compete with people just to chase down peanuts. I'm a bit out of the loop on genuine freelancing sites but I think Constant Content is still alive and kicking. Plenty of clients there know you have to pay a quality price for the work published there.

    Whatever you do...

    Avoid Content Mills

    If you value your work, your soul and your sanity, avoid content mills like the plague. The editors on most of them have their heads up their asses, they expect publisher material quality and usually pay less than the majority of marketing forum positions.

    Look at a place like Textbroker: They start out paying .75c per 100 words or $1.50 per 100 words, depending on the "quality" of your content. To land that $1.50 per 100 word dream gig (sarcasm), you have to have content that has absolutely no comma errors and appeals to the editors. You'll constantly run into editors who have differing views than the others and you'll be knocked for comma rules that make absolutely no sense. Even if the client rates you 5/5 and wants to order more from you in a direct order, you can get your rating bumped down to .75c just because of commas.

    That should give you a basic idea of how content mills are generally run.

    I think he meant captcha entering, as in the ones where you solve captchas. For example, There were people on DP once hiring people, I forget the rate, but it was something like $1-5 per 20,000 captchas solved and what you are doing is solving the captchas so that bots can better attack / hack other sites (like a bot cant use a form on a website as that website has a captcha, this is the captcha that people solve, so that the bot can attack that site). The rate was so low, several users on DP worked out it would not even pay the power needed for the computer....

    You are spot on about the work from home, except it has gotten worse since then. People have ended up being taken to court, facing prison sentences over some of the work from home things that they have done. Like its common on DP to see people looking for people to sell stuff on ebay (ebay dropshippers)

    For example (not necessary 100% how its done) but the scam works in that the sucker lists the item for sale on ebay. Collects the money from the buyer, you forward the order and money to your partner that pays for the item elsewhere using stolen credit cards, and you might even then have to receive and post out the stolen goods. (for more information view: http://www.scamwatch.gov.au/content/index.phtml?itemId=694276)

    Truth is, if there was a high paying, genuine work from home opportunity, I would not have gone to work today :)
