You Can Make Money with MTurk!
My readers know that I would never recommend any program unless I have tried it out myself. And I want to reassure you that not only have I tried it out, but I have also earned over $200 doing it over the last 2 months.
Mturk (Amazon Mechanical Turk) is a site where people and companies submit jobs that need to be done. Some examples of jobs are surveys, article writing and transcribing. It’s sort of like outsourcing.
Workers, like you or I, can choose to work on a HIT (Human Intelligence Tasks) and earn money.
Many hits or jobs only take a second to earn a few cents while others pay more for more time. Now, this doesn’t sound like much, but over time and actually, pretty quickly those few cents can add up.
It is up to you what hits you want to work on or not work on. You may want to do some simple and quick jobs that just take a moment to do where you can earn a few cents or you may want to do a job that takes more effort and pays more money. I like to do the math in my head and focus on jobs that pay $5 an hour or more.
You may be thinking that $5 an hour isn’t much at all. But I really enjoy doing hits. I work on mturk while I’m home being bored. I don’t get paid to play video games or watch tv, so why not work on jobs with Amazon Mechanical Turk and earn some extra money online.
When working on hits it is important to be careful! Accuracy is important. If you don’t do good work, then your work will be rejected and it will lower your score making you ineligible for hits that pay more. It is important to take mturk seriously and always try to do your best.
If you do good work you will be rewarded. You will notice that soon you will be eligible for more hits that pay more. So it is important to take your time and do a great job.
Now keep in mind, I only spend about 3 or 4 hours a week doing M-Turk. It is just a hobby for me and I only “turk” when I’m bored and not working on other things like my affiliate marketing business.
But if someone decided to do mturk part-time by working 20 to 30 hours a week, you could really earn a decent amount of money. It would be perfect for a student or a stay at home mom.
By the way, I am not an affiliate and I don’t get paid by recommending this program. I just see that it works and thought I would share it with my readers.
Here are my stats so far. I know it isn’t much, but again, I only do a couple hours a week.
