Make Money Performing Human Intelligence Tasks

Work when it's convenient for you by signing up MTURK.COM. The website, run by Amazon.com, pays a few cents to a few dollars for small tasks that fulfill a larger job.

My strategy on Mechanical Turk is to perform the tasks that take the shortest time to complete - like a quick survey, or rating a video. I have already received $1.67 from filling in bonus surveys sent to me via email!
