QA World Review (Real Transcription Jobs or SCAM?)

Welcome to my QA World review.

I discovered QA World a while ago, during my search to find a legit online job. It’s not easy to find a legit home based job, so I ended up trying a lot of different companies and programs before finding QA World and giving it a shot.

That said, QA World isn’t a scam. It’s a real online transcription company that provides real home work for experienced and inexperienced typists alike. But it’s not the highest paying gig and there are some drawbacks to consider, even if the low payout doesn’t bother you.

In this review, I’ll show you everything you need to know before you join.

What’s QA World About?

QA world is a transcription company that provides work at home jobs.

It’s fairly easy to signup and get started, you just need to go to the website and create your account. Then follow the prompts to get yourself qualified and start doing transcription work.

The average “work day” amounts to listening to a bunch of different recordings and converting those into text with your computer. These range from things like general customer service calls to voicemails. Basically whatever they give you to transcribe, you transcribe.

And they pay you on a per minute basis, directly into your Paypal account.

But you need to begin by doing a “test” job first.

This test consists of a 30 second long audio for you to transcribe. It’s meant to test your spelling, English comprehension, and grammar. And once you’ve completed this test transcription, you’ll be immediately told if you’ve passed or not. 

The cool thing is it’s pretty easy to pass, and even if you don’t, you can go back and re-do it until you do. Either way, if/when you pass, you are redirected to the page that tells you how much you’ll earn as a transcriptionist for QA World.

How Much Can You Earn With QA World?

Once you complete your QA World account and pass the initial test transcribing job, you’ll end up on the page that tells you how much you can earn – $0.20 per minute of audio you transcribe. If you do the math on this, that works out to $12 per hour.

Which isn’t much, but it’s better than most “online jobs” and sites that promise to help you make money doing things like filling out surveys and so forth.

But that’s NOT how it really works out.

Here’s why…

An experienced transcriptionist is able to transcribe one hour of audio in about 3-4 hours. Which seems like a lot, and it is, but that’s what it takes to get it all written down, edited and formatted correctly, to the level of quality companies like QA World require.

Which means that, in reality, you’d be earning about $3 to $4 per hour. Which, for a regular 40 hour work week, means you’d make between $120 to $160 per week.

Now some QA World workers claim to make as much as $375 per week, but that’s about the highest I’ve seen. And those who are earning that sort of cash are likely doing so by working 16-18 hour days, six or seven days per week.

So, how much can you make with QA World?

Not much!

I guess it depends on where you are located in the world though and what you’re used to earning. So it might be an okay way to earn a few extra bucks for some.

Using Your Typing Skills to Earn REAL Money

QA World is the same as pretty much every other transcription job company out there, at least the legit ones. They pay you, but the amount you earn is just incredibly low.

You really can put your writing skills to better use.

I know because I’ve done it myself. Basically what you do is create simple affiliate websites that generate passive income online. It does take some effort, like anything worthwhile, but if you follow the process, what I’ve found is that it works.

How does it involve writing?

Well, the website you setup can technically make you money from day one, but you need traffic (visitors) coming to your site if you want to make money. And one of the best ways to get traffic to your site is to create simple pieces of content.

Because when you follow the right process, your content will rank in search engines like Google and Bing. Which means people will visit your site and buy products you recommend.

You don’t need to sell anything, you just recommend other people’s products on your site and earn commissions. It’s really simple and I use this method to make a full-time income working from home. Before this I was working my butt off just to make a few bucks per hour, so I love sharing this method with others who are looking for a legit method of working at home.

Bottom Line

QA world is a transcription company that provides work at home jobs. It’s fairly easy to get started with and it’s definitely a legit site. Despite some of the complaints I’ve seen from others online, QA World does pay you what they say they will, and they do so on time.

The problem is how much money you can earn.

As mentioned, even if you work really (really) hard for extended periods of time, it is highly unlikely that you’ll make enough money to even pay the rent. So while it may be suitable for some people, it’s definitely not the most rewarding work at home gig I’ve come across.

That’s me though, what you decide to do is up to you.

I’m not affiliated with QA World, so my aim with this review was never to convince you to join, or not join. As with anything I review, my aim is just to share my opinion based on what I found, and hopefully that helps you make a more informed choice either way.
