Minute Workers

My favorite types of opportunities are those where I can work whenever and wherever I want AND I can choose the type of work I want to do. I love being able to open up my laptop at 9:30 on a Friday night when there aren't any good TV shows on and choose to earn some money without having to wait for a survey invitation. Minute Workers is one of those opportunities that you can do whenever you feel like it. 

What is Minute Workers?
If you like and are familiar with Amazon Mechanical Turk, you will probably also like Much like Mechanical Turk, is a platform that brings employers and workers together. Employers utilize the help of workers to complete simple tasks - some of which involve clicking links, filling out forms, downloading apps, completing offers, taking surveys, etc. 

How Do I Make Money?
Once you've registered for a free account, simply locate tasks that are of interest to you, complete them, and submit your work for payment. At the time of this post, has two payment thresholds. If you choose to be paid out at the $2.00 threshold, MW will take a 10% cut. The second options is to cash out at the $10.00 threshold and receive the full amount. You can choose to be paid through Paypal or AlertPay and payments are made on the 15th and 30th of the month. There are two other ways to make money with referrals and forums.  By referring friends to, you earn $.05 when they sign up, and another $.10 when they complete their first task. You can also earn a penny for each forum posting you make, a penny for each thread you start, and a penny for each reply to your thread.  

Earning Potential
Like most other task-oriented opportunities I've posted, payment for depends on the difficulty and time commitment of the task. Tasks start at $.10 and go up from there. Because this opportunity won't earn you a lot of cash on its own, it would be a good candidate for one of your streams of income.
