    I once saw somebody post that he had earned over $3000 in one month, and I was in utter disbelief. :eek:

    It dawned on me that this person was just another human like me, and if he/she had enough discipline + the will to achieve this, why not me?

    Last night I sat down and did not allow myself to focus on how boring or monotonous my work was. I focused on how good it might feel to have some actual money on the bank....

    I might never achieve this again, but I now know (as the rest of you now know) - that it is completely possible to make money if you work hard.

    I don't want a congratulations or a pat on the back. I want you to see how the general attitude here at mturkforum has inspired/helped me.

    Thanks mtf

    I am sure its possible.. I have got $8 a day by just doing surveys and a few quick castingwords hits just 1 - 2 hours a day. I am still grinding up to 95% so i miss a lot of the good hits still

    Yes hun, it is possible for US and maybe Canadian peeps. You are right though it does take discipline. WTG!

    It definitely is inspiring. For me personally, I am setting achievable goals like $20 a day. I feel this will be easy to do while at work. This will make it easy for me to reach $100 a week and $400 a month, which will be a gigantic difference maker in my life.

    If you set out and make unrealistic goals, you set yourself up for failure. There are ways to make good money on mturk but I believe it is very hard so stay within yourself and don't burn yourself out!

    I understand this too. If you notice the 4 previous days before the $100 days - I worked myself up day by day, doing slightly more each day.

    At the same time I'm very cautious. This is a small victory, and the opportunity to earn this much will not always be around....

    I don't know how you're achieving these kinds of numbers. On an average day, I make an extra $5 turking. I once had about $80 in a single day, but let's face it, hits that pay that decently are few and far between. After three miserable years augmenting my income this way, what I've found is that the vast majority of requesters pay less than two dollars an hour. And that you can spend more time on there looking for hits that are worth doing than you do actually working.

    Most of the time, when I'm looking for hits to do, I feel like one of the cleaner fish in an aquarium, sucking my way across the glass over and over, in hopes that another microscopic layer of slime has accumulated since my last pass.

    I try to get at least one $75-$100 day each week and every other day at least $20. Whatever I make on weekends is just extra.

    Having just start turking last week, I thought that $20 bucks a day could be a reasonable goal to set. By now however I feel that this is nearly impossible as a noob. With experience $20 is easy and then some but as a noob it seems pretty hard. Maybe there are just poor hits since Thursday, I really don't know. I also see a lot of batch hits but they have caps on them, and some are min 500 approved hits.

    Through survey's alone I can do about $5 bucks a day but I will need to venture into some transcription or article writing to reach my $20 dollar per day cap I think. Right now I spend more time looking for HITs than doing them.

    You average out to .21 per HIT, CS HITs I take it? They have been plentiful buy I have been in a foul, lazy mood lately. I probably let at least $20 easy bucks slide by each day last week.

    And I was watching this documentary about a sector of Cairo's poor who sort the city's garbage by hand to get recyclables to make $1.10 per person per day, spending 12 hours a day sorting trash.

    And I can get that in a few minutes and a few mouse clicks. This world is fucked man. We're such rich sons of bitches and we don't even know it.

    I've been an MTurker for about 7 months and my earning experiences mirror yours very closely. At best, I have made around $8 a day -- it's not at all impossible to earn $5-$6 a day on a regular basis. And if you're an experienced and fast writer, you can do even better. But I generally stick with the surveys since it's easier to pick up some speed answering the same demographic questions over and over again, and it's rare for surveys to pay more than about $1 a HIT. I've also observed that it's especially helpful if you can develop some speed and rhythm on the HITs posted by requesters who have multiple assignments under the same heading ... I really don't know how anyone could consistently earn some of the figures I've seen posted like $50-$60 a day but in theory, it IS possible. It's just difficult to find large amounts of higher paying posts and if you work there on a daily basis, the "good ones" do start to dry out after a while...Am eager to read more info here on avoiding rejected HITs -- I don't have many of those but most of the time, the reasons given for the rejection have seemed completely bogus to me ...

    Some Turkers spend 12 hours a day sorting through trash and make $20 :cool:.

    In all seriousness though I understand that perspective. Shit we are lucky enough to have pluming in our houses.....

    I must be doing something wrong. I work on Mturk for about 10 hours a day. I make about 10 dollars or so. How is it people are making so much more? I understand that about 2 or more of those hours are spent looking for decent Hit's, but dang. Today I completed 200 Hit's, the most I have done was 350. I also look for the higher paying Hit's, but for the most part they are either crap, or so long drawn out that I could have made that by doing more. I seem to average about 5 cents per hit.
