How to Make Money Online by “Amazon Mechanical Turk”
Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing Internet marketplace enabling individuals and businesses (known as Requesters) to coordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks that computers are currently unable to do. It is one of the sites of Amazon Web Services. Employers are able to post jobs known as Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs), such as choosing the best among several photographs of a storefront, writing product descriptions, or identifying performers on music CDs. Workers (called Providers in Mechanical Turk’s Terms of Service, or, more colloquially, Turkers) can then browse among existing jobs and complete them in exchange for a monetary payment set by the employer.
In order for you to become a content writer, here are some steps you can take:
➢ Visit Mturk.com and sign up as a worker.
➢ Your account is not instantly approved. You might have to wait for few days or even weeks before you hear from the mturk team.
➢ You can search HIT’s by entering keywords for example “Survey”, “Data entry” or some thing else that is of your interest and suits your skill and passion.
➢ When you accept a HIT make sure you provide quality work. Requesters can approve or reject the submitted work. If you have performed more HITS that were eventually approved by the requesters then this score is also calculated and based on this score you may become eligible or qualified to perform more HITs.
How much can I make out of mturk?
➢ HITs pay anywhere from $0.01 to $25 or more based on the effort of the job that is required to perform.
➢ You can perform several smaller tasks that pays in cents and it will all add up at the end of hour. The more time you spend completing tasks, the more you will earn.
