I have been asked by lot of people about ways of making money online. Most of those ask me are working people who want to make an extra income with their typing and english language skills.Some of them are housewives and retired workers pondering over what to do with their extra leisure hours.But all them want to make money from internet.I used to outsource content writing, proof reading, lead generation works of Orangis Online to freelancers in the past. I am happy that i could help some people through my company.Through this post, i want to introduce a crowdsourcing service of Amazon, Amazon Mechanical Turk. First of all i am putting a disclaimer in this post.I am just introducing a service only. I cannot guarantee you any returns.This however is one of the best way to earn money online.

 Crowdsourcing is the way in which a specific task is divided in to small bits and pieces.Such small bit of a task is despatched to a crowd through the internet. When the crowd does their bit,the whole job gets finished. Each member of the crowd does not even get the idea of the whole project. A small bit of a job won' t be tedious either.It will generate less money to the worker.However worker will do lot of such bits of a job and so eventually he makes a good amount of money.This is the concept.

The international shopping service, Amazon has a crowdsourcing service called Amazon Mechanical Turk.Their philosophy is that some works require human intelligence. It is actually a marketplace where requester (employer) divides work required to HIT (Human Intelligence Task).Worker is a person among the crowd of people who are ready to work for the requester. A worker can see number of HIT with description. He can work on an HIT, submit the result and you get the money. Generally the task would be data entry, spell check, transcribe an audio recording etc.

Here is an example of an HIT.You are given a keyword.You have to search that keyword on google.And return the URLs of relevant result.You would be paid $0.08 for each result.The requesters pay money to amazon, Amazon takes a ten percent cut and pays the workers the promised money in cash or as gift certificates.

How do you get paid?


If you are a US resident, you get the money to your US bank account. You can also opt for redeemable amazon gift certificate.Indians also have the choice of receiving money in indian bank account. Rest of the world workers will only get money as amazon gift certificate with which you can purchase from amazon website.

Will you be cheated by Requesters?


It is a marketplace so crooks can also get there.They can cheat you before they are identified by Amazon and thrown out from the service.

Recent Ban on New Accounts


For new amazon workers, there is bad news.Recently because of oversupply of workers, amazon is not approving new workers from India , Canada and UK.When you are applying , you will get this standard response if you are from this regions.

We have completed our review of your Amazon Mechanical Turk Worker Account. Unfortunately, you will not be permitted to work on Mechanical Turk. Thank you for your interest in Mechanical Turk.

I am hopeful that this situation will change and workers from these regions will be readmitted soon.Though you cannot make lot of money through Amazon Mechanical Turk initially, it is possible to do it by delivering large number of HITs quickly as you get experience.
