Can you type, research, write, edit (text, photos or video) and other small tasks? Then you might be a good candidate for microworking. Many businesses need help completing project tasks and are using crowdsourcing to find people to take care of these micro-jobs. The type of work can very from typing, researching, snapping photos with your phone, editing a photo, evaluate websites and more.
Can you make a living at microworking? I think it’s possible, if you choose work wisely and work efficiently. Each task on its own, doesn’t pay that much, but I’ve heard about microworkers who are able to stay busy and earn $1,000 to $2,000 a month. The trick is to continue to search and apply for microwork and complete work you’ve been assigned on time to garner good ratings.
Below are 24 sites that pay microworkers money (as opposed to points). In most cases, you’re paid by PayPal. Be sure to reach each sites terms of service for details on payments and other legal issues you need to know. Please note, that I have not signed up and tried all these sites, so please read the small print, don’t pay money to join, and listen to your gut. Let me know if you find a site that is suspicious.
