18 Best Data Entry Remote Jobs in 2023

When I first started freelancing, before I established my reputation as a writer and editor, I took many data entry gigs as simple side hustles.

And while I had no direct experience as a data entry specialist, I had plenty of transferrable data entry skills from my previous roles and even as a budding freelance writer.
