Doing clixsense micro-tasks or the mini tasks is the best way to earn online because it is very easy, there is no work limit (Ex. only 20 tasks/day). You can work 24/7 and earn as much as you can. Through mini tasks, you can earn at least $5 if you work 1 to 2 hours a day. I'm not saying just by words, I personally did several clixsense tasks and earned money from it. I will share the most I can, so you don't get confused after joining. Micro-tasks jobs are provided by several platforms among those crowdflower leads. Crowd flower is a genuine data enrichment platform help their clients to process their raw data to useful data. 

Earn online by doing micro tasks

What is micro task:

  • Micro-tasks are data processing tasks. Like, you will be given some data/material/link and asked to find the errors, find the information in given material, marking spots, copy pasting etc. 
  • Micro-tasks are so simple that even a kid can do it. 
  • By reading this article you will get an idea what are tasks and how easy tasks will be.

How to start?

  • Crowdflower is very strict about the quality of the work done. So they don't allow a newbie to do all the tasks. Instead, they test new members by asking them to do 3 simple tasks.
  • At the beginning, you will get only $0.01 per task. So, don't feel you can't earn more. After answering 100 questions you can access high paying tasks.
  • Once you enter crowdflower as a new member the following tasks or tasks similar to this will available.

What are available jobs and potential jobs?

  • In the above-given picture see the top right corner. There are available jobs and potential jobs tabs. Available jobs are the jobs currently, you can do. And potential jobs are the jobs which you can do if you have good accuracy level. I will discuss this in the later part of this article.

Basic tasks to qualify to do the potential tasks:

  • Now coming back, the simple mini tasks will be given to the new members like finding the article, finding the author etc.
  • First, try to do the identifying the articles. It is the simplest job in crowdflower.

Identifying the articles task
  • Once you click on the job, it will load in a new tab. In the case of this task, your job is to find whether the linked web page is an article or not.
  • They will provide complete instruction about how to do the tasks. You gotta follow all the instructions carefully.
  • To do the tasks click on "click here" to go to the web page. If the web page contains article mark 'yes' if not 'no'. An article contains a complete sentence to multiple paragraphs.
  • In one identifying article micro task, you will be asked to identify 5 to 10 articles. Once you complete the task automatically your account will be credited.
  • It took only 5 seconds to identify an article for me.
  • Similarly, follow the same in the case of finding authors micro-task. Go to the web page, copy paste the author's name in the given box.
  • For these basic tasks, as said earlier you will get only $0.01 per article. Only if you do a certain number of tasks with good accuracy you will get high paying tasks.

How to get high paying potential tasks:

  • To access high paying tasks you should answer 100 question (Ex. identifying the articles) with at least 70% accuracy i.e. you have to answer 70 questions correctly out of 100 questions. 
  • Tasks are categorized into 3 levels. To access each level you need certain accuracy level. To access 1st level tasks you should have 70% accuracy as said above, for 2nd level tasks you should have 80% accuracy and for third level tasks you should have 85% accuracy.

Examples of high paying potential jobs
  • Look at the potential jobs given above. Required accuracy level is given for each task.
  • Some tasks can pay you $1 for completing.

After reaching good accuracy level:

  • Once you answer 100 questions with at least 70% accuracy level. Crowdflower will send you the mail regarding the next level reach.

Attaining 1st level in crowd flower tasks
  • These are 1st level tasks I got after reaching the accuracy level. Later on, I got more available potential tasks, like 25 tasks every time I login.

  • You can select the job that you find easy and interesting. I will explain you about some tasks that I've done.

Some of the tasks that I've completed:

  1. Hi, Tamil,

    I enjoyed learning about all of the paid micro tasks that are available out there, but I wonder if the pay is way too small - I mean, this will be less than minimum wage, right?

    I was going to send the info to my daughter so she can check it out. She has a small baby and could possibly do this part time, but the time involved and compensation don't look too appealing.

    Or am I missing something? What's the average per hour you've made?

    Thank you! Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Carol,

      Thanks for your comment. I'm very happy that you've enjoyed.

      And lots of people search for online jobs and they are ready to work even for small reward. That's why companies like these pay too low which is not reasonable. As I've said above, you should to be smart to choose right task which is easier and pay more.

      On average I used to make $3 to $5 per hour and it took some days for me to understand about tasks and find a easy one with more reward. Then after I was able to pickup the pace.

      I've shared my experience here to help visitors like you to understand about tasks before they start. This will ease their work after sign up.
