More about oDesk - the real earnings are not always immediate

I decided that you folks might benefit from hearing a little more about oDesk and how it has helped me to not only earn money from home by simply doing data entry jobs, but has taught me the first steps toward truly earning a full time income online. I will explain to you how this opportunity came about, and hopefully you will benefit as much as I have. I don't stand to earn anything from this post, I'm not even posting a referral link, but this is too exciting not to share it with you.

One of my first (and best) online data entry jobs entailed working on an online resource directory called Boomja. I had never heard of it, but I didn't need to know anything about it, I only needed to research and enter data. I soon discovered that Boomja is a massive online directory for virtually anything you would want resources for. I must admit that I found the job a bit challenging at first, but I stuck it out and it became second nature. I finished the first job and was thrilled when I was offered a second one, and then a third. Now, this is the first benefit; ongoing work that is familiar and has become easy to do. I became curious about the Boomja directories, vaguely recalling an email telling me I could build my own. At that time, I was still trying to figure out how to enter the data, building my own directory was not anywhere on my radar. I finally went and checked it out, and sure enough, I found that it is free to build a directory based on the topic of my choosing. I had to submit an application, which was approved within 24 hours, and I then received a comprehensive instruction manual. The manual included not only the basics, but great information about how to market the directory, monetization, keywords, etc. That's the second benefit; the directory instruction manual has taught me so much about marketing sites in general. I went ahead and started my directory, added Google AdSense, and viola!, every page I completed loaded AdSense ads. We're talking hundreds of pages here, all included in my AdSense account. Therein lies benefit number three; passive revenue from AdSense. So, if you're following this so far, I am not only being paid to build directories for other people, I am learning how to build a rockin' directory of my own. Finally, I have been offered the opportunity to be paid for marketing the directories on sites like Digg and Reddit, and I will be receiving an instruction manual to show me the best way to do that. Guess what I will do with my new lessons? You guessed it, apply it to my own directory. My directory is already earning a small amount, and it's not done, nor have I marketed it very much. I am so excited at the potential once I complete it and truly begin to market it. You can also have this same opportunity. Just go to and see if it looks like something you want to try. I suggest you take a look at other directories before you apply. As with any other legitimate income, this is not a free ride. There is a lot of work involved in setting up a Boomja directory, I have been working on mine for months.

As I said, this is just too good not to share. If you are willing to put the time into, there is a tremendous amount of income waiting for you through Boomja directories. See, I told you, no referral links, just info you can use. Happy earning!

  1. You're right. oDesk is just too good not to share. I am also working as data entry provider at oDesk and I have a blog about it -
    It's fairly new so you can't see much but I'm also planning to add a page for my other favorite moneymaking making sites.


Thank you!
