This post will show you how to make money with Mechanical Turk.
What Is Mechanical Turk
Mechanical Turk is a marketplace where companies submit very small tasks (referred to as HITs or Human Intelligence Tasks) to be completed by individuals. Tasks include participating in research surveys, sorting comments or products in to given categories, or writing short articles.
Each HIT you complete is worth anywhere from a penny for easier jobs, like rewriting a sentence in your own words or captioning a picture, to several dollars for more complex tasks like writing a 200 word movie review, or testing out a website sign-up functions.
These tasks should not be considered a way to get fabulously rich. However, if you have a small amount of free time, you can easily make 20 dollars a week just picking and choosing HITs to complete. If you have a lot of free time, it’s possible to earn even more.
