3 Ways to Increase Your Mturk Earning

MTURK - Amazon WorkPlace

Are you a Mturk worker? Do you know you can make good amount of money by working on Mturk? I have been working on this site since last two years, and I am earning around $10-30 daily by only working for 1-2 hours. When, I was new to this site, I used to make only $1-5 daily, However, my earning increased as I learnt many ways to improve it.

Today, I decided to share these simple ways  with other Mturk users. Here is the methods which I use whenever I work on Mturk:

3 ways to increase Mturk earning

1. Search best hit to work:

It is better to use search option for hits instead of going through all the pages and wasting your valuable time. Before you click GO button, make sure that sort by is set at “Reward Amount(most first)” and search check only for which you are qualified. This will make sure that you are only looking into hits which you can complete, also which will pay you more.

I always use few terms to search hits, which I found that are most common for hits. You can search for following terms:

  • Survey – Searches all hits which need you to complete a survey
  • Decision – Hits which requires you make some decisions
  • Game – Hits which requires you to test game
  • Task – Hits which requires you to complete some simple tasks
  • Test – Any kind of testing hits
  • Search - Hits which requires you to do google, yahoo or bingo search

Few other terms are easy, quick, simple, fun, etc.

Here is an example of similar kind of search result

Before, I clicked GO button:

Mturk hit search option

 

After, I clicked GO button:

Mturk search result

 

You can see that after I clicked go button, I got 54 hits on which I can work at the moment. I can decide on hit, I should work now rather than wasting my time by scrolling through all the pages containing 755 hits.

2. Use OpenTurk chrome extension to notify for new hits:

I use Open Turk chrome extension to notify me when some kind of hits like surveys are available. You can download this extension from here . I have been using this extension since last one month and I have seen 60% increase in my daily earning.

Once Open Turk extension is installed, you can subscribe for hit on which you like working and want notification. Also, it can recommend you hits which are shared by other users.

Open_Turk

Open_turk

 

You can find more details about this extension on their site.

3. Complete Qualification:

There are many qualification hits available, You can always complete these hits whenever you have no hit to work, completing these hits will enable you to work on more hits in future.

Ex. If you complete adult qualification hit then you would be able to complete all hits which requires adult qualification.

Also, You can browse all hits and complete or request qualification required for that particular hit.

How to create a wordpress blog – Step by Step Guide

how to install wordpress

It is very confusing when someone starts own blog like I was when I started mine.  Many of my friends ask me how to create a blog so today I decided to write step by step a guide which can help others who are looking to have their blog. Nowadays, it doesn’t require any technical skill like HTML knowledge to start a blog.

P.S.: If you get stuck while setting up your blog, get in touch with me through contact page and I’ll help you out.

Here are prerequisites before you start a blog:

  1. First decide what are you going to blog about – some ideas are fashion blog, cooking blog, affiliate marketing, etc.
  2. Decide blogging platform – Even though there are many blogging platform but I would suggest wordpress as it is best platform and easy to install.
  3. Decide if self host or free host – Yes, even though wordpress can host your blog free, but nothing is really free.When you start a blog with a free blogging service, you don’t get your own domain. You get blog name something myblog.wordpress.com, which is similar to other millions of blogs hosted by wordpress so it would impact your site traffic.

Once you have decided on above three points then you can follow below steps:

How to setup free blog with wordpress?

1) First register at WordPress.

wordpress blog setup

2)  Choose a theme you would like to have:

choose wordpress theme

 

3) Customize your theme:

customize wordpress theme

 

4)  Share your blog with friends:

share your blog

 

5) Create post:

6) Publish you post:

Once you have created your post publish it using publish now button and your blog would be online in no time. Here is my blog which I have created just now:

your first blog

 

So, you can see that it took me only few minutes to set my free blog. You can also have your free blog in few minutes at WordPress.

How to setup paid blog with unique domain name?

If you want to have your own domain name for blog and want to self host it then follow below steps:

1) Decide a domain and hosting plan:

It may be a difficult task to find a good domain name, but once you have decided your blog topics then it should be fun to find out a domain for your blog.

How to find a domain name and how much cost is involved?

Your domain for site should match with topics you are going to write. If your blog is about fashion, and you choose domain name www.fashiontopics2013.com then it is not a good idea. But why?

People cannot remember long domain names and when they want to return to blog they are likely to forget your blog domain, which can impact your site traffic. A blog name should not have numerical values in it also it should be unique like www.fashionindia.com

In short, your domain name should be:

  • Catchy
  • Easy to remember
  • Unique

There are lot of sites where you can buy your site domain but it is good idea to choose it from reputed site like Godaddy.

You can have your site domain name for cost of around $1.99 monthly and about $10 yearly as you’ll get discounts.

$8.99 .Coms at GoDaddy.com

Once you got your domain, you’ll need web hosting to host your blog. I would again suggest to use Godaddy hosting as it is reliable and has best plans. Web hosting would cost you around $1.99 monthly and $10 yearly with discount prices.

20% of Hosting for your Website at GoDaddy.com!

Once you have got your domain and hosting plan then move to next step.

2) How to setup your blog using 1-click option at Godaddy:

You can use Godaddy 1-click option to install your blog without any manual intervention. You can follow instruction given at godaddy article Installing WordPress on Your Hosting Account.

3) How to setup your blog manually at any host:

In order to install your blog manually to any host, you need to know the following requirements:

  1. PHP 4.2 or greater
  2. MySQL 4.0 or greater
  3. At least 1GB free disk space

If your host meets the requirements(which Godaddy by default does), go and download WordPress from – http://wordpress.org/download

Once you have downloaded wordpress then unzip it properly, check that everything is unzipped in single folder otherwise your blog installation can fail.

Once files are unzipped, then find wp-config-smaple.php file and rename it to wp-config.php

After that open the file with Wordpad (or Notepad) and change the following lines:

define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name’); — You’ll need to create database name by login in your hosting c-panel
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username’); — It is your c-panel username or database username if you have set different while creating database
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password’); —- It is your c-panel password or database password if you have set different while creating database
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); – In most cases you don’t have to change this. So at first you can leave it as it is.

Once you changed above file then you need to connect to your hosting FTP account; you will need a FTP client (for example, FileZilla) or you can use file transfer option in c-panel. If will need to login using username and password provided by your hosting company.If you upload the files to the root directory then your blog will be accessible from www.yourdomain.com. If you upload files to a specific folder (for example blog), your blog will be accessible from www.yourdomain.com/blog.

Here is some snapshot to explain above FTP process in better way:

Create database using below mysql database option in c-panel:

mysql database

Upload files by clicking file manager in c-panel and then use upload files in root directory or sub-folders:

FTP Manager

 

Once you have uploaded blog files then

Ok, so you are almost there. Now open your web browser and type in the following URL: www.yourdoomain.com/wp-admin/install.php
After that fill in the form (password, username and name of the blog) and click on the “Install WordPress” button. Once you get message that you blog is installed then login to your file-manager and delete install.php file, this is to avoid any installation by mistake in future.

So finally, your blog is ready. Now login to your admin panel using URL: www.yourdoomain.com/wp-admin and start posting blogs.

P.S. If you found this blog helpful then please share it with others. Thanks.

How to earn money online by working on small task?

Work on tasks and earn money

Who said that earning money online  is difficult? I don’t agree with this. I have been working online since last two years and can say that you can make at-least $500 per month like I am doing. I am making money with surveys, watching videos and by working on small tasks.

Here is an example how much effort does a small task take and money you can make:

Work on small tasks

You can see that it takes about 2-3 minutes as an average to earn 10 cents. You can make around $2-3 hourly by working on these small tasks.

There are sites like mturk , clickworker etc. where you can work on small tasks and earn a reasonable amount. There is no way to earn quick money online, you’ll only earn if you can work 2-5 hours daily. I would suggest that do not only join a site but give some time on that as I have seen many people who just join as a site but give up very soon.You can multiply your earning by referring other peoples, check my post how to refer a referral to know more about it.

Mturk which is the best site to work on a small task is not allowing any new registrations. I did post about the sites which are similar to mturk, you can have a look on it and join sites on which you would like to work.

I am listing sites, which provide their members a chance to earn money by working on tasks, surveys or watching videos.

11 Best Sites to Make Money Online

  1. AirTasker - Very good site if you are from USA
  2. TaskRabbit - Only accepts members from cities listed on their website.
  3. CloudFactory – Only accepts new work force from Nepal and Kenya
  4. Mturk - Currently only accepting new members from USA
  5. NeoBux - Best PTC site which offers small tasks too. How to earn Money at Neobux?
  6. ClixSense - Second best PTC sites with tasks and offers
  7. ClickWorker - An alternative to Mturk, best thing about this site is that there is no minimum to cash out so whatever you have earned you will get paid no need to wait months to reach minimum payout limit.
  8. RewardingWays – Trusted site, paid me many times
  9. SuperPay - Very good site which has many offers and is very legit.
  10. Ace2Three – Rummy site for Indians, trusted site
  11. FanSlave - You get paid for liking Facebook pages, following Twitter , google+ and watching ads

You’ll be making money by completing surveys, watching videos and working on tasks. Most of above sites pay you for referring others, referral commission can be anywhere between 10-25%. These sites pay either through Paypal or paycheck.

I shall keep updating above list whenever I find any other trusted sites which pay money to work online. If you have smartphone then you can also make real money with android apps.

Make Money Online – Neobux Vs Clixsense

Clixsense vs Neobux

Neobux and Clixsense are PTC(Paid To Click) sites, which are legit and trusted. You can earn money by working on tasks, filling free surveys, completing free offers, viewing ads and by referring others to these sites. There are a lot of similarities in these two sites like both sites are older than five years, both sites are legit, etc. I have been working on these sites since long time so thought of comparing these two to find out which site pays more than other one.

You can upgrade your membership, it costs $17/year at Clixsense and $90/year at Neobux.

3. Earn Money by Working on Small Tasks:

Neobux and Clixsense both have small tasks, which pay anywhere between $0.01 to $0.25 per task. However, Neobux pays 80% of task value compared to 70% of Clixsense. I mean to say that  by working on these tasks you can earn 10% more money at Neobux compared to Clixsense. You can earn by task listed on these sites. These sites pay around $2 per hour for working on these tasks.

4. Earn Money By Working at Offers and Surveys:

You can earn as an average $1 per survey or offer you complete on these sites. Neobux offers more money for each survey and offer compared to Clixsense. Neobux pays 10% more than Clixsense for every offer and survey.

5. Refer and Earn:

NeoBux pay $0.001 – $0.01 for every ad your referral view. However, at Neobux, you can earn only $0.04 per day for every referral who view ads compared to this; Clixsense has no limit and pays 10-20% of your referral earning.

Similarly, you can earn 10-20% for every task and offers completed by your referral.

Neobux has limit on the number of referrals you can refer, which can be increased by purchasing golden membership. Clixsense has no limit so you can refer unlimited number of referrals.

Conclusion:

Neobux and Clixsense are legit so I think everyone looking for opportunity to earn money online should join these sites. Neobux is better if you are unable to find referrals however Clixsense is much better than Neobux if you have a lot of referrals as there is no limit for people you can refer at Clixsense. Neobux has minimum payout limit at $2 for first payment and Clixsense minimum payout is $8.
