Data entry may seem like a small job, but its knock-on effect can be huge. Finding someone who can accurately complete your job is as easy as reading previous reviews from other Airtaskers.

Top Data Entry related questions

Data entry is simply the process of transferring information from one place to another. Common examples include inputting information from paper onto a computer system, taking data from a spreadsheet to put into a sales CRM and putting sales data into a report.
You can often get a very tight turnaround with data entry work, although this would need to be mentioned in the job ad and agreed with the Tasker beforehand. Speaking to Taskers in different cities or time zones could also help you with certain projects.
Data entry can technically be done on any kind of work, but if you are sending confidential information it's a good idea to get the Tasker to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) beforehand.
There are few qualifications available for data entry workers, although related skills such as typing proficiency can indicate a good candidate. Another consideration is the amount of data entry and office-related work they have done before.
While some people prefer to have work done in their own city, the advantage of an online marketplace like Airtasker is that you can recruit workers from all over Australia. This can help in times when you need multiple workers, if you have a tight turnaround or if you're from a small town with few options.
Data entry tasks can vary significantly on price depending on the scope of the work. On average, data entry jobs on Airtasker cost between $45 and $150, with $90 being the most common fee.

What do data entry services include?

Data entry services include all the activities necessary to compile, verify and edit electronic data, then enter it into a database or documentation platform. You can book remote data entry and freelance data entry Taskers who can handle all sorts of data entry jobs. Do you need recorded meetings transcribed? 

Maybe you have to record sales or inventory figures. Does your customer database need updating? Whatever sort of databases you need to be compiled, organised and updated, you can book the right Taskers to do them!  

Organising and extracting data

Your data entry Tasker can begin by organising the data by format. They can sort the data on PDF, JPEG, WAV, MPEG, word files, excel spreadsheets or other standard formats. They can listen to audio files, transcribe conversations or check text, and then compile and transfer the relevant data by typing them into a spreadsheet or word file upon request.  

Reviewing data for gaps and deficiencies

Some data entry Taskers can check the data sources for deficiencies. Upon request, they may point out which entries are lacking or deficient, then send them back for your team to review and fill in the missing data

Creating a spreadsheet

Your Tasker can create a central spreadsheet that contains all the data you need. They can make sure the spreadsheet’s cells are appropriately labelled, and the information is sorted by date, alphabetically or in a sorting style you specify. Your Tasker can transfer the data, typing it as fast as they can without compromising accuracy and minimising errors. You can also have them use a specially-prepared excel data entry form if you want. 

Using database software

Send your Tasker a copy if you have a database software you wish to have the data entered into. They can install the software into their computer to compile the data and update your database. Be sure to have your data entry Tasker consent to a non-disclosure agreement or clause in your contract to protect your data and software. Your Tasker can uninstall the software you provided after they’ve finished with your contracted work. 

Editing and proofreading

Once the data is sorted and entered into a central database, your Tasker can proofread the data for errors. They can check that the data is sorted correctly and compiled, check for errors and correct them appropriately. 

Sending the data

After the database is checked and ready, your Tasker can send the data. They can save the data in a file format you specify, then send it on or before your agreed deadline. You can request your Tasker to erase any data from their computer after completing the work.

If it only takes you 2 hours, great, you still get the $100. - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, April 20, 2023 / I am Flexible on the date...If not that Thursday, then that Saturday the 22nd.
