How to Make $5 a Day Online with Amazon Mechanical Turk

Different people have different goals for what they want to make online. If you are working on Amazon Mechanical Turk you might have a daily goal. I suggest to start with a $5 daily goal and go from there. This is $150 a month.

When you first sign on to Amazon Mechanical Turk you might be a little overwhelmed and wonder how you can make $5 a month.

The first thing you want to do is make sure you are signed up with the Turking Forum called Turker Nation. This is the best place to find the best hits each day.  Recently Turker Nation has made it more difficult for people to join and have access to their forum.  I was told about and that is where I go these days.

Every morning when you start on Amazon mechanical Turk I would go to the forum and search for the survey threads. There are two of them. “The Cool Surveys” thread and the “Piggy Bank HITs” thread. These two are the most important threads if you are open to working on surveys. You will find out which surveys are out there, about how long they take and what they pay. Visit both of those threads and do as many of the surveys that you can. Now most surveys only take a limited amount of people so it is best to check these threads throughout your day. You usually can always find at least one survey to do.

When it comes to taking surveys I want to use my time wisely. If a survey is less than $1, it better take me less than 10 minutes, 5 minutes is ideal. I will spend a little more time on one if it is over $1. You just have to play around with it and find what works for you. The longer you do it the better you will be at picking which surveys are worth your time and which ones are not. You do not want to spend an hour to make $1.00.

After I look at the survey threads I hit “new posts” on the forum to see if anything catches my eye. After that I will search by “HIT creation date (newest first)” and look at what is there. I like to find hits where I can do a lot of them at a time even if they are .05 each. They also have to be very quick to do. I don’t want to spend a lot of time on each of those types of hits.

Writing hits are another option I like to search for. These hits take more time but you can make a lot of money quickly if you work on them.

If you find that you can’t find any good hits, take a break and come back later. Hits are always being added and you can see how many are active at any given time. Right now there are 196,226 available to search though.

If you use these methods you should be able to come up with $5 each day.  All that would be is finding 5- $1 surveys.  You can play around with it to find out what will work best for you.  After some time you can start to slowly increase your per day earnings.  At one point I was making $25 a day which was very nice.  Especially since at the time I didn’t have any other forms of online income.

Working on Amazon Mechanical Turk is not passive income but it is income you can make online. I find it a great way to make some extra income as your grow your passive income businesses.

  2. Interesting method, I was a seller at Amazon a few years ago which seems like yesterday.

  3. Let me add that there are many ways of earning online. The challenge is to keep up with the times. WP is the way to go, and admire the webmaster who put up this great Blog! I can see a few income streams right on this blog which shows the webmaster is monetizing it on top of the suggestion in this post. Multiple streams of income is the norm nowadays in Internet Marketing.

  4. It seems new for me but it is OK. Thank you for sharing your experience. It is worth reading and can be one of the options how to make money online. May be I can practise it some other day. Great posting.

    in weight reduction, the popularity of this brand is escalating.
