Microworkers Tips

Microworkers has money making potential.  In my experience, it’s more suited to doing maybe four or five jobs per day and building up the dollars gradually.  That’s because there are slightly less opportunities for work and earnings than on MTurk, purely because there are usually far less jobs on offer.  If you are like me, however, you use a variety of websites to make money online, not just MTurk.  Anyway, here are my Microworkers Tips.

  • Create alternative email accounts etc. to use specifically on Microworkers.  That way, if you get spammed later, it’s not effecting your main personal account.  You can also do this with Facebook, Youtube etc. for some of the tasks that ask you to rate/favorite/like specific businesses etc. but be careful, as the requester may reject you if they work out what you’ve done!
  • Always read the job carefully before you agree to do it.  This might seem one of the most obvious of my Microworkers tips, but it’s quite easy to mess up and slip below the 75% approval rate if you’re not careful.  I came very close one time just by me making making mistakes with two small tasks.  One more mistake and I’d have been out of action on Microworkers for a couple of weeks.  (Microworkers is more generous than MTurk and allows your approval rate to recover over time.)
  • This is maybe my best Microworkers tips on how to make money online and learnt from experience.  Always check out the success rate of the workers who’ve completed the job previously, it will give you an indication of whether the job is easy to get right and also whether the requester is legit.
  • I guess it’s a question of conscience, but I personally avoid jobs that I think might be scams or not legitimate in some way.  I really don’t want to be responsible for posting some fake job advert that might defraud some desperate unemployed person.  (I would like to see Microworkers clean up their site where it comes to scammers and spammers, but I doubt it will happen anytime soon!)
  • I find that some of the competition voting is quick and easy money in Microworkers.  You can sign up and vote three times in ten minutes and earn a dollar.  The same goes for the facebook liking and twitter following etc.
  • I always say it with MTurk, but the same is worth mentioning for Microworkers, and that’s to always prioritise your own security and don’t give out personal information to requesters that could be used to defraud or spam you.  Always be wary of requesters who offer large sums for apparently simple tasks.

  2. I can't help you Jomz, sorry. I have the same problem. There just aren't that many jobs on Microworkers at times. It is a much smaller operation than MTurk and there isn't always enough work on there.

  7. Payment is a sore point. They used to use PayPal, which was good for me. Now they use Moneybookers and Alertpay, which isn't so good. I don't know any specifics for Bangladesh, sorry - I am Brit living in the USA.

    1. There are only a limited amount of jobs there. There is no way around that, as far as I can see!

  10. I joined beginning of Feb. 2012. I do primarily quick 2 to 3 minute jobs like google+1, blog facebook comments, keyword search and rank, retweets. These only take a couple minutes. I've done 264 jobs so far and only failed one. Average earnings per job is just over $0.35. $61 earned in Feb., on pace to earn over $100 this month. Made my first $40 withdrawal. Took a week to get my PIN and was paid the day after I entered it into the site. Am using Moneybookers for pay and got my first deposit from them in just 2 days. I'm finding plenty of jobs to make $3 to $4 per day. That's my experience so far.

  14. Paul, can you update us with your Microworkers experience? This post is over 1 1/2 years. Are you currently using it? I've been working on Amazon's Mechanical Turk (AMT). When I signed up to Microworkers, the majority of the jobs seem to violate the rules that AMT has in place... giving personal information... signing up for accounts on outside web pages. They ask for my ISP address. Isn't that something I'm supposed to protect? I've also read reviews that it is a scam and many people complain they never receive the PIN that is required to withdraw money. They have also switched off of PayPal to another payment method I've never heard of, AlertPay or something like that. So if you have a current update/article, I would enjoy reading it. Thank you.

  15. I've stopped using Microworkers for some of the reasons you've outlined. It was a combination of the things you've outlined above. A lot of the jobs on there are ethically borderline to put it diplomatically. Also, to get paid the last time, I ended up having to open another account, not Paypal, to get my 10 bucks. MTurk is less trouble, in my experience, even if it is harder to get reasonably paid jobs than it used to be.

  18. Well well well, many of the comments and also what I've read elsewhere about microworkers are not exactly inviting. Paypal removed, many bad requesters, lots of complaints with payments... now I'm sure to stay far away from microworkers.
