This weekend I signed up for MicroWorkers.com task site. So far so good!!! It certainly isn’t Amazon Turk? but there are times I exhaust all available work on Amazon and I simply need more : )
The tasks offered are quite simple ranging from joining newsletters, websites or writing comments and reviews. Some surveys/studies.. but for the most part it is basically a micro version of Amazon Turk with an average pay of about $.50 a task and generally they take about 5 minutes to complete. This is a fair hourly wage for online work of this nature so I will devote some time to the site throughout September and share my results with everyone.
It will take a few weeks for me to feel comfortable with the platform and it will also be interesting to see how fair the requesters are? but most importantly will I get paid! I made $10 for 2 hours work but I expect the hourly rate to increase a bit as I get more comfortable- so far? I have been approved for $2.5
More to come! If you try them? be mindful that there are a LOT of sites with similar names! Make certain you are signing up for http://www.microworkers.com
