Thought an update’s due on how things are going for me this month.
It’s been a good 10/11 days. I’ve made close to $200 so far.
This is the first full month where I’ll be doing the extra hours I mentioned previously. So my earnings are set to increase quite a bit compared to last month. Last month, I made $110.42 proofreading. This month, I’ve already made over $150.00. To explain, this is from the one gig, but consists of income from:
– anytime I log in at my leisure and there’s work
– hours I’ve signed up for/committed myself to do (extra hours)
So, one is flexible, while the other is shift based. But it’s the same job.
I make more during shifts as there’s an hourly rate, so it’s accounted for about two-thirds of what I’ve made this month.
For anyone interested in joining the site, who feels they’re qualified, I’ve written in detail about it. Read the following post first, then if you’d like more info, that post tells you what to do. / To be clear, if you decide to apply for the gig, it won’t be for shift work. It’ll be for the other option I mentioned. You log in when you want and wait for work as, if and when it comes.
OK, moving on…
Gift Hunter Club/Crowdflower tasks…
Crowdflower is a company that divvies up lots of short tasks amongst lots of people. I guess the premise is that a mass job gets done much quicker if a lot of folks do a bit each, rather than a handful of people trying to manage the workload and taking a good while.
This is commonly known as crowdsourcing and Crowdflower isn’t the only company that does this. There’s Amazon Mechanical Turk, Microworkers and Clickworker, for instance.
(I said this was gonna be a quick recap, right?!)
Anyway, so Crowdflower tasks can be found on a number of GPTs (get paid to) sites including Clixsense, Cashle and Gift Hunter Club. I’m supposing these sites get a cut which is why they host it.
My preferred GPT platform for doing Crowdflower tasks is Gift Hunter Club.
Last month, I made $77.00 on Gift Hunter Club, most of which was via Crowdflower tasks I did. | (read more about CF tasks and Gift Hunter Club)
This month, I’ve made $37.00 so far – so I might beat last month’s figure. I think I can.
I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to add a third earning strand this month and would look at Clickworker (similar to Crowdflower).
I signed up to Clickworker a few years ago. Used it intermittently, then stopped using it altogether in 2012/2013.
Used it a bit last month. But this month, I was of the mind to explore it more and see if there was money to be made.
The work available depends on where you’re based. For the UK, I found there was hardly any work. However, because I’m online a lot, and I’m a night owl too, I’ve been lucky to come across some work.
So far, I’ve made about $45.00 there this month, but I won’t receive any of what I’ve earned ’til March. I can wait.
So that’s me so far…
I’m half thinking it would be nice to get a $500 month this month. Will keep my eyes open for possible opportunities to do so, but not push too much. If I make $500 this month, great. If not, the month’s still shaping up OK.
I ultimately want to be making $1000 online a month. And more. I have debts to heal. I want them gone by the end of this year, if not completely, then significantly. But I want to do it my way in terms of how I earn; mostly flexible is important to me.
