Earn Extra Income: How Mturk is paying for Christmas

Living with a small budget, I knew I had to get creative to pay for Christmas this year. I did a lot of research on work at home jobs, but none of those seem to be something I could fit into my life right now. Then, I came across Mturk.

I already had an Mturk account from last year. I had made a whole whopping 14 cents in 2016.  I remember it took me a long time that morning to make that 14 cents and I felt this was a waste of time.

After doing some research and from what I had read in the online reviews, you can make a decent income, but the trick is to stick with it.

That is what I did. I stuck with it. After I started to get the hang of it, I made a goal to complete tasks and make $5 per day. For the last couple weeks I have been trying to make my goal every day, but sometimes life gets in the way. Starting next week I plan to increase my goal to $7 per day.

You won’t get rich doing Mturk Hits, but the extra $5 per day is extremely helpful when I am Christmas shopping. So far, it has taken less than 24 hours to put the money that I have earned on an amazon gift card.

You are probably wondering what Mturks is and what it does. I’m going to tell you.

What is Mturks?

Mturks is Amazon Mechanical Turk. It is a Amazon service, which allows companies to find humans to perform different tasks that computers cannot do at this time.

These companies create different Hits and you can choose which type of Hit is right for you.

For example, there are a lot of research surveys from different Universities in the world. Another type of Hit is transcribing different audio clips. Some Hits include images of receipts where you type in certain data from the receipts. There are so many different types of Hits out there.

On my very first day, I submitted 22 hits and made $2.77. It didn’t take long for those hits to be approved and the money put in my account. The next day I didn’t have much time, so I only submitted 5 hits for $1.95. In total, since I started this journey on October 6 I have made over $77. I know that is not a ton of money. Could I have earned more? SURE! Its all up to you and how much time you have. I have been busy and I can’t put in too much time.

Be sure to do your best work. Having too many rejected Hits will mess with your rating. The more hits you have and the better your rating, the more Hits you qualify for. I had one rejected because I didn’t fully understand Mturks yet. I had a second one rejected because I typed in an unique code wrong. However, I was able to email the company in charge of that particular Hit and they still paid me for the Hit, but unfortunately they couldn’t remove the rejection.

I am still new and getting used to Mturks. I am sure as I submit more hits I will be able to become much more successful! I will update as I get better at Mturks.

If you are interested head on over to Mturks and check it out for yourself. I think there is a ten day probation period where you can only submit 100 Hits per day. After that I do not believe there is a limit.

Happy Turking!
