For the past couple of weeks, the following has been a common trend on ToneADay:
When you go to rate words, you get a message that more words are being fetched, to be patient, to come back in a few minutes or later.
Several times, it really has been more ‘later’ than ‘a few minutes’.
I wouldn’t recommend that anyone rely on ToneADay for a significant (or only) source of income; ToneADay has said as much in their forums, and I totally agree. However, if you want to make the most of ToneADay, I have the following tips:
– log into the site and leave the window open for the duration of the time in which you’re online. If there are no words to rate, refresh the window every 15 minutes or so until (hopefully) words become available.
– when words become available, do what you can while you can
– even though there’s no telling when the current words you are rating will become unavailable, don’t rush through them. Do what you can, but take your time rating them. I try and spend 10-30 secs rating each word. If you rush it, there’s a chance ToneADay will not pay you and all the work you put in would have gone to waste.
If you’re using ToneADay and can offer additional tips, that’d be grand.
My ToneADay Earnings…
I’ve been paid $18.66 to date (1st payment of $1.79 in Aug; 2nd payment: $16.87 in Sept). Proof below:
I’m approaching the $7 mark in current unpaid earnings. Going by how unpredictable word availability has been on ToneADay, there’s no telling how much further my earnings there will creep up. However, as long as my ratings get approved upon verification by the staff, then I’m good with whatever I make.
