There are several out there, but I've had the most success on Mturk (run by Amazon). There's a learning curve and the more you do the more jobs are available to you. I started last year and I've broken the $3000 mark ($2000 from this year); it's not a lot compared to a regular salary, but I'm only looking to earn a little extra for my student loan payments and fun things like vacation money/Christmas presents/shopping since we live off hubby's income just fine. But there are a lot of people that easily make $100/day on it ($50 is my good day amount), so there's plenty of potential to earn.

This is my day so far - did all of these in less than an hour while waiting for DD to crawl out of bed while browsing the Internet and enjoying my coffee. And still in my PJs.

(That $4 survey took me about 12 minutes, best survey of the week so far!)

I started using mturk about a month ago and have only made about 10 bucks. Definitely a learning process. I started doing some transcribe things that I really enjoyed. They were .01 cent ones but offered bonuses if you did more on the page. I'd spend 10 mins on one, do them all with a potential 4 dollar bonus and they end up ta king the full 30 days to pay and only pay the .01. Huge waste of time. I'll have to start looking at some other things.

I personally have more luck with the surveys. They tend to pay more all at once, and the researchers aren't as shady as some of the transcription requesters. Surveys have potential for follow ups and bonuses too - I just finished a series of surveys about where I've seen advertisements for new movies that paid .50 for 2 minutes. Did 13 of those over 14 days, and got a $5 bonus today for finishing enough of them. Easy peasy work for almost $12!

It all depends on what you find that you enjoy doing though!

I recommend using Firefox or Chrome and downloading some scripts. Hit Scrapper has increased my earnings so much since I started turking with it. It basically lists all the current hits based on your criteria, along with showing the rating for the requestors, so you have one list of hits to do. So much easier than trying to search the actual website for a hit to do.

There are also some places where other turkers post hits that are worth doing.

https://www.reddit.com/r/HITsWorthTurkingFor/new/
http://mturkforum.com/forumdisplay.php?30-Great-HITs
http://mturkgrind.com/forums/awesome-hits.4/
https://www.facebook.com/groups/mturkmembers/

You might want to focus on building up your numbers until you're above 500/1000/etc, since that will unlock more hits for you. This is the link for a receipt hit where you just decide if two receipts are the same or not. They auto approve in 7 days, so you'll have to wait a bit, but they're super easy and great for number building.

Ben Peterson is another great and easy hit (rate a dating profile picture for 3 cents, approves quickly), so is Venue Quality. If you have a dual monitor you can knock out Jimmy Dragon business card hits quickly and I've never had a rejection from him.

Definitely a lot of potential with it once you understand it! I made $21 today for only 2 hours worth of surveys while DD was asleep.

Wow thank you so much for all the tips! Right now I just do it for a half hour during my lunch break at work but this will help so much!

If you are interested in working from home perhaps you have some friends in the network marketing industry. Many people will initially think these home based businesses are scams or pyramids but i can tell you there are LOTS of legitimate ones. If you work hard enough you can be very successful. I personally love my home based business and wouldnt change it for the world.
Cant say im rich but supplementing my previous income makes me feel a whole lot better about staying home.
Your friends will be honest with you about their opportunities find one that you can be passionate about and believe in, if you dont/wont use the products then that one is not for you.
Good luck on your Journey!

I agree. I am not a SAHM, but was looking to supplement my income to help with student loans and other bills. I am big on removing harmful chemicals from our household and such. So I started purchasing Pure Haven Essentials products. Then I joined as a consultant just for the 30% discount. Then people started asking me about the products and i started to tell them etc. I have been making about $200 extra a month. The products sells themselves as people are looking to be more healthy etc. I haven't even ever had an in person "party". So i agree if there is something that seems to strike and interest with people that you know etc it may be an easier and more efficient way to make money. The surveys are great, but take up so much of your free time!

Home working


As Heather11 mentioned, I to have active interest in how to live greener, and came across an opportunity to promote eco friendly household products with Wikaniko (We-Can-Eco). I have just started an eco cleaning business using these products off the back of it, and hope to keep growing the business. I am not a natural sales person, but found that just from talking about the products to friends and family, it is easy to get regular orders and people tend to be interested as it benefits everyone without any extra cost to them.
