Some tips to make money on MTURK
In MTURK Tasks are termed as HIT(Human Intelligence Task)
- – If you are new to Mturk, then start with the HITs that are easy and available most. The idea here is to increase your HIT approval rate (%).
Once you have high approval rate, you can go for somewhat difficult ones and earn more. Always maintain a high approval rate as quality Requesters mostly maintain HITS approval rate (%) high to only let the best workers work on their HITS.
- – Make sure that “Show all details” is clicked when working on HITS (in all open HITs browser windows), this will aid you in seeing the essential requirements and qualifications for that HIT.
- – Always use a multi-tab browser such as Firefox so that you can open the different types of Mturk HITS in various browser windows. Clue
- – one tab each for Reward Amount (most first), HIT Creation Date (newest first), HITs Available (most first), Expiration Date (soonest first/latest first and Time Allotted (most first/least first). These browser tabs for HITs are arranged as per my preferences, you can choose a different order of the browser tabs as per your preferences.
You should definitely keep on refreshing your browser windows in these tabs to keep a check on the HITS and then clicking at the fastest speed to get the interesting ones matching your choice. Oh! Needless to say, you must first see if you can do the HIT and the first choice must be to get the HIT of highest reward.
- – Writing and transcription HITS as observed by me used to pay more, so try doing these HITs. Or, check the HITS that pay more over a period of time. If you are not able to do these high paying frequent HITs because you don’t have the skills then get those skills. But make sure to analyze over a period of few months that these types of HITs frequently comes at Mturk as you might waste your money in acquire these skills unnecessarily. I think that the chances that
your skills will go waste are remote as you will definitely get work from some other sites also. Skills never go waste if you keep on looking for ways to utilize them somewhere.
- – Use a good fast broadband connection so that you get the HIT when you click on it. If you are clicking on a HIT and getting a message that the HIT has been assigned to someone/Not available then you must check if you are clicking on the HIT quickly or should go for a faster broadband connection. 2 Mbps broadband connection should be Okay but if all workers have the same broadband speed connection and they all are clicking at a particular HIT at the same time, the one with the faster broadband speed and PC wins. So, decide on this point accordingly as per your experiences at Mturk.
- – If a Requester rejects your HIT, contact him/her and ask the reason. I did get some of my HITS approved this way. Contacting Mturk is useless in such cases as they are only interested in their commissions from Requester and not in getting your money from Requester. They give a shit about Worker’s money (it hurts but it’s true).
Also, on the other hand, appreciate a Requester who approves all your HITs and pays quickly. Write and maintain a contact with these Good Requesters. The probability is there that the Requester may choose you and other similar quality workers exclusively for future similar HITS at the same rates. Also, they may give you the work directly without Mturk if they find that the work requires skilled workers who are already in touch with them through email. What is the point for a genuine Requester to get the HITS done through MTURK if the same workers are directly available to do the same work at the same rates minus the Requester commission paid to Mturk? Requester in such cases will thus save their commissions otherwise given to Mturk for posting the same HITS there.
Also, sometimes, the instructions given by the Requester in the HIT are not 100% complete (despite their best attempts). When you contact such Requester after your HIT work is rejected and correspond with them, they take care to relax their approvals accordingly and also take care to include full details for the future similar HITs posted at Mturk.
