Really Enjoying MTurk
« on: July 26, 2016, 02:02:57 PM »
Now that I am understanding it better I am really starting to get the hang of MTurk. At first it was hard, and there is a learning curve there, but now I do consider it to be a legit 5-10 dollar a day site. (at least) My favorites are the academic studies. These are abundant there and typically pay .50-1.00 per task. Those are generally fun and interesting and don't take very much time. It may say on it that it takes 45 minutes, but usually it way faster than that. You can "qualify" for better tasks by taking the little test and they are usually not to hard either. So now that I'm getting the hang of it, MTurk has become a primary site for earning for me.

I earned over $300 with MTurk when I was really active there. That felt so good. I have tried to get back into the ball game there lately but have not been committing to it as I did before. It is a nice site to earn some extra cash for sure :).

Thank you for the post about this. I have been wondering if I should sign up. It sounds like it might be a good one for me, even if I could make $5/day that would be awesome.

Can you help me out by providing the link to where I would go to sign up?

Also, I am not sure if I would need a different username, or would I just use the username that I already have for my Amazon shopping account?

If I do sign up, I will come back and post about it. Maybe ask some questions from old timers like you guys, and/or share any tips that I have been able to find out about.

Looking forward to hearing more about it. :)

Back when I was just starting out in the internet marketing field, mturk actually helped me a lot in getting that initial amount of traffic.

it is still a very good source of income if you are just starting out.

Also, you said right about the test because once you clear it more and more tasks would be open.

Sometimes the tasks do get very repetitive but if you are willing to go through them, you can make a decent amount of money.

It is very easy to make $5 to $10 a day on Mturk if you are a US worker. International turkers might not get the chance to make as much because they don't qualify for the academic studies. I really enjoy doing the academic studies because they pay well and they usually pay within a few days.

Hi GingerBelle,  I'm happy to help out if I can. Here is the link to sign up for Amazon mechanical Turk You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  I am pasting in a Picture of what the site looks like so you can see you click on the small circle in blue that says earn money to begin. You don't register through the regular Amazon site MTURK is a unique username and password for working for Amazon Turk. The registration process is very easy and if they approve you for work there are just a couple of things to keep in mind. First there is a chrome extension called TURKOPTICON that is very helpful when you are working on that site. It is so you can see which jobs are worth doing according to other people who have done them and rated them. Also keep in mind that if you begin working on a job (they call it a HIT) and you don't like it or find it difficult you must return the hit because if you don't it will be considered abandon and that kind of counts against you later. you can also preview a hit before you decide and that helps a lot. It would be very easy to earn five dollars a day or $10 a day but many people who work on that site earn five dollars an hour some even say that they earn $10 an hour so keep that in mind. There are helpful YouTube tutorials as well as a website called M Turk grind.com Those are helpful.  If you do have other questions be sure and let me know. I hope it all works for you. They don't have a referral program everybody just signs up individually and you can get paid every day for as little as one dollar. Hope this helps.

Another tips for MTurkers who are new to the site...check out Reddit to see Hits Worth Turking For. People post the easy HITs that only take a few minutes and pay out well. It really helps to weed out the scammers this way.

I had some major issues with Amazon Turk in the past. Mostly because of not being able to get my Amazon Payments account verified properly. Going to be trying again since I really have no place else to go. Here's hoping for the best once again!

Some days are better than others on Mturk. There are some days where I can clear more than $5 a day and others I am struggling to find work to do. I noticed that the middle of the week is the best for earning and then it slows down a lot during the weekend because nobody is posting new jobs. You just have to work the site hard when there is a lot of work to do, and then not work it so hard on the weekends. Academic studies are the best for earning quickly and the surveys are normally easy to do.

I'm glad to hear you're enjoying working on MTurk, @ziskasun! It sounds like a great site, from what you're saying. I never even knew you could access academic studies through the site. It sounds a bit like the types of studies we get via Prolific Academic, which I really enjoy. -and wow, to be able to clock between $5-10 a day; not bad at all. Way to go :)

I tried to join this program, however, this is not available in my location. They say Mturk is a good earning program from Amazon.
