Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk)

Amazon is affiliated with so many things, but I recently found out about this.

Per their site: “Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a marketplace for completion of virtual tasks that requires human intelligence. The Mechanical Turk service gives businesses access to a diverse, on-demand, scalable workforce and gives Workers a selection of thousands of tasks to complete whenever it’s convenient.”

Basically, you get paid small amounts to do small tasks. This includes things like surveys, extracting receipt information, provide search results, pulling info from a site, rate pics, and so on.

I would love to share a referral link for this, but I’m not able to locate anything. If you would like to try this, visit https://www.mturk.com/get-started. If you have an Amazon account, it is the same login info. You can also choose to be paid via Amazon gift card. I’m scheduled to get my first payout of $8.39 this Thursday. My goal is to have a higher payout next time around. I created a reminder to make sure I log in daily and complete a few tasks.
