On the Internet there are different methods to earn extra money. The best known and that we can do in our free time are paid surveys and also advertisements. But in this post I want to talk to you about another increasingly popular method: how to make money doing mini-jobs and tasks on the Internet.
How does it work?
There are companies specialized in outsourcing tasks (some of them are mentioned below). Others go to these companies to find people willing to perform small tasks in exchange for remuneration. Traditionally, these tasks were performed by workers, but now they can be performed by anyone, anywhere on the planet. This is known as Crowdsourcing.
What kinds of tasks or mini-jobs should you do?
The tasks and mini-works are of different themes and degrees of difficulty.
Some tasks can be:
- Recognize writing. As an example: identify what they have written in handwritten form and transcribe it.
- Classify objects. As an example: say if an image shows a dress or a skirt.
- Find information. As an example: verify the data of some companies or companies.
The proposed tasks are rarely rewarding, in fact, they are usually repetitive tasks.
How much can you earn
For every task you do, they will pay you a few pennies.
Therefore, the idea is that you do as many tasks as possible and thus accumulate your earnings.
Don't expect to earn the same as a full salary, but you can get some extra money.
Websites where you can earn money doing mini jobs and tasks.
This page is available worldwide and is in English, but avoid worrying that the tasks offered are in Spanish 😉
To register, select "Register as Clickworker". Once you have registered, you must complete your profile. This step is essential, as the tasks and mini jobs available will depend on your skills and interests.
For complete your profile you must go to the section Profile and click Clickworker's profile. Here you have several tabs to fill in with your information: About you (about me), languages (languages), skills (abilities) and hobbies and specific knowledge (hobbies and technical knowledge).
Various alternatives to earn money on Clickworker
In Clickworker you can obviously earn money doing mini jobs and tasks. Some may be: copying emails or writing a text on a specific topic, in some cases they may ask you to use the microphone or webcam, etc. Depending on the complexity of the task, the remuneration will be different. Of course, you should know that the tasks are reviewed before being approved, that is why your balance will not be available immediately.
You can also win by inviting your friends, in other words, having referrals. Every time one of them wins € 10 you will win € 5, but keep in mind that this commission is only achieved once for each referral.
Another way to earn money on Clickworker is by using the UHRS platform, available in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Peru. To gain access you must pass two tests in English. In the first, you need to achieve a percentage of at least 90% to pass the second test, which deals with issues associated with the platform. To do the tests you must go to the chapter Evaluations.
You have to have in your balance at least € 5 to request payment, which will be done through PayPal or bank transfer. To add the means of payment, go to the chapter Bill, and subsequently to Payment details.
Recommendation: Clickworker does not notify you when there are new tasks available, therefore visit the web so that you do not miss any task, if it is feasible do it every day. You have to be careful, sometimes there are very well paid tasks. I once did a (a test) for which they paid me € 9!
Appen (previously Crowdflower)
Another web portal where you can earn money doing homework and mini-jobs.
Appen is the leading company in crowdsourcing services, available worldwide and in English. Here I am also going to give you a hand so that you can visualize that they are not as complicated as it seems.
The operation of CrowdFlower is this: it receives orders from other companies to carry out certain tasks, later classifies them, defines a price and distributes them among its partners (which are other websites such as Neobux). These associates are the ones who offer you mini jobs or assignments to earn money on their websites.
This is why, unlike Clickworker, you do not need to complete a profile at registration, as tasks can be found on PTC websites, where you already have a profile.
To register in this web portal, you only have to put your name, your email and a password. I suggest that you use your Facebook account directly, since when performing tasks through partners they will ask you to do so.
To have access to CrowdFlower tasks, as an example for this Neobux case, you must go to the "Offers" chapter, where you will find the "Mini jobs". A screen equivalent to this will appear:
Select the task you want to perform and a new tab will open to log into CrowdFlower and start the task. You will first have the instructions and some examples before you begin.
Eye: Tasks are usually in English, but Google Translate can help.
Recommendation: As I said, you can earn money doing mini-jobs and tasks on other websites like Clixsense ("Tasks" section) or Gift Hunter Club ("Earn points" >> "Tasks" section), etc. But I suggest you use Neobux to get more out of it, because they also pay you an extra commission. 😉
Other important features to know about CrowdFlower:
- The tasks are very simple. As an example, they can be: verify addresses of some companies, complete information of some companies, etc. and the pay per task is usually less than $ 1.
- The money you earn will accumulate in the balance of the partner's web portal where you chose the task.
- If you perform a task on one partner's web portal, you will not be able to do it again on another partner's web portal. The task is only validated once with your CrowdFlower account.
- There are 3 levels, which you will access according to the number of tasks answered, work done, percentage of hits and flags received (flags : negative marks for doing a task incorrectly)
- Some tasks have a certain amount of time to complete them. If you have not completed it, the task will not be validated.
- In almost all mini-jobs, we will first have to overcome a "QuizMode". A test so that the platform knows if we are suitable to carry out this work.
Amazonian Mechanical Turkish
It is crowdsourcing platform It belongs to Amazon, it is available globally and in English. Through it you can do small jobs that require human intelligence. Because despite technological advances, there are certain tasks that a machine cannot perform. 🙂
Like the other websites I have discussed, the tasks are generally simple and repetitive. The remuneration will depend on the complexity of these. Some tasks by way of example will be: marking objects in an image, verifying that a text is said in an audio, etc. These tasks are called «PASTE”, Which is the acronym for Human Intelligence Task, which stands for Human Intelligence Task. And the employees are called "Turkers."
In general, anyone can access these HITs. However, for some tasks, people must be qualified to perform them. This qualification can be achieved by passing a test.
To register All it requires is your email and password, or if you already have an Amazon account, you can use it.
You can do a search for the HITs that interest you. You will have a list with all the available ones.
Eye: For him US Users Revenues can be collected directly through Amazon ("Amazon Payments account") or through Amazon gift cards. For him Indian Users it is loaded on gift cards or bank transfers. For users other international users only gift cards from amazon.com
Recommendation: Start with $ 0.02 jobs which are the easiest. You can also choose the jobs that are within your area of knowledge.
Performing small tasks and mini-jobs on the Internet is an interesting alternative to earn extra money from home, at the same time you do not need previous experience and you can complement it with other ideas that I share on the blog. It is very likely that what you earn is not comparable to a salary, but the advantage is that you can perform these tasks in your free time. At the same time, sometimes there are tasks that are well paid.
If you have been encouraged to earn money doing mini-jobs and homework, I advise you to start with the easiest ones and read the instructions carefully. Good luck! 😉
