Word Processing

Income $50,000-$200,000

The range of income for the first year will be dependent upon the length of the jobs you’re able to secure. Capturing documents is extremely lucrative. Most firms pay an average rate of $2 per page.

You could also expand your endeavors to the point of locating clients, managing other word processors and negotiating 25-50% of their rate as your fee. This would give you unlimited income and eliminate the need for you to actually do the work yourself.


Companies that need occasional word processing services would have projects such as manuscripts, as well as legal events such as depositions and court reporter’s documents. You would need to capture the documents in the client’s desired format.


Your clients will consist of legal firms, as well as state, county and federal legal departments and publishers. You will also find that college campuses may have professors and students who need manuscripts, theses and other documents captured.

Your services would allow them to hire you as the need arises.

Marketing Plan

Your marketing plan will be based upon targeting legal services, schools and publishers. Join leads clubs in order to obtain personal introductions to firms that would use your services. Personal introductions will provide you a more rapid access to new clients.
