What is Your MTurk Daily Goal?
« on: April 17, 2015, 04:33:35 AM »
For those of you who work with mturk, do you have a daily goal that you try to meet? Do you have difficulties meeting that goal?

I used to do the occasional job on mturk but I stopped for a while because it was a bit grinding and boring. I also wanted to pursue more writing opportunities. But when I was doing mturk I made some decent money. I had a goal of $1 a day for a month just to try it out and make some extra cash. The only times I did not meet that goal was when I was being lazy.

Well, I don't focus upon Mturk that much, but I focus on an hourly rate because $1 per day isn't even enough to pay a single bill. I focus upon earning at least $6.00 per hour. I'm willing to discount the hourly rate (even though it's not minimum wage) because i can get the money in my bank account within a business day, and that's hard to come by online. Anything less than $6 per hour and I'm moving on to focus on another task for the hour.

I do mostly transcription work on Mturk. I have a love/hate relationship with it because it is my favorite as far as the content itself goes, but the requester on Mturk is also the company that pays the least of the 3 companies I work for. This company requires that you do a minimum number of hits a week in order to keep your account open and active, so that's my weekly goal. I do the minimum weekly requirement in order to keep my account active.

I don't set an mTurk daily goal.  I use mTurk (and instaGC and TellWut) while I watch TV.  I don't allow myself to watch TV without working on one of those sites.  Last weekend, I was binge-watching Burn Notice on Netflix and earned around $40 doing it...but I didn't do much else.  In the last 48 hours, I haven't even turned the TV on (because I have been binge-reading the Aethereal Bonds series instead) so I haven't worked on those sites at all.  I'm very disciplined with my transcription and my writing but more flexible with lower pay sites.

My daily goal is $30. I usually earn more than that each day however but I get carried away sometimes.

Wow, $30 a day on Mturk?  I can't seem to get any hits that pay more than a few cents per hit, which means I would have to spend ALL day on it to earn that much. 

I do hits until I get bored or the run out and then I move on.  It's not my top earner but I can get MAYBE a dollar a day from Mturk... if I try hard.

If I could make $30 a day, I will definitely try it, no matter if I have  to spend the whole day in there since I'm actually working from home full-time.

Problem is that never understood how mTurf works, but I will check again to try :D

Do you only work on transcription on mTurk? How do you make $30 or more per day? I am truly interested in that, because I can only make $2-4 a day.

I am still trying to get the hang of MTURK since I have been on there less than 10 days, so I have not made a daily goal for myself. If you take a few of the higher paying hits, I can see how you could make a few dollars a day, just not the one penny hits.

I don't have a daily goal. I like making a hundred bucks or so from Mturk per week without doing too much time on the site. I'm attaching an image of what I've done in the past few days on Mturk, but mind the low-earning days because I work on more lucrative sites when the work is available!

That's impressive. I don't think I've ever done more than 100 Hits a day on days when I concentrate more on Mturk .  How long does it take you to hit 300?

I usually don't hit 300 HITs, but that day, specifically, I remember there being some easy transcription work that made it possible. I can do enough audio transcription HITs to manage about six to eight bucks per hour after bonuses are included. That usually amounts to 30 to 40 HITs.
