    Hey guys I've been Turking for about 3 months now and I've completed 1748 HITs with a 100.00% Approval Rating. I'd say I'm doing alright, except for the fact that I'm averaging roughly $2.00 per day and complete anywhere from 12 to 70 HITs in a day.
    The Requesters I frequent are:
    411Richmond (I rack up bonuses from large receipts)
    Jimmy Dragon ($0.03 HITs are crack)
    Crowdsource (I max out the limit every week)
    Speechpad/Speechink (these people need speech therapy)

    I see threads where Turkers are bringing in over $100 per week, and seeing as this is my main source of income right now, I'd really like bring home some more bacon.
    What do I need to do get up to $100? $200?
    How much time & work do I need to put it in / how much work do other Turkers put in to hit the golden $100 per day??

    P.S.: I'd post my 45-Day stats but I can't post any attachments yet

    I'm new to turking but here's what I can tell so far:

    Hit up surveys during the day; you can rack up $10 fairly quickly doing the .50+ HITs

    After that, try to find some good batch work and plug away at it until you hit your daily earning goal.

    Check around the great HIT threads from various forums etc to get the good ones

    I work full time and have only a few hours a day to turk, here and there and have been racking up around $10-15 a day fairly easy. Hope this helps and good luck with earning what you need!

    Good looks! I'll start doing more surveys and up my batch work. $10-15 per day would be awesome - I'd be able to pay for my Metro Card and even have enough for lunch. Thanks TurkinTrucker :cool:

    Nice job Manny!

    More HITs you do, the better you will get. Keep building your numbers to have more access to HITs and get quals whenever you can.

    You're on your way to making $100 a week. It will happen.

    I'm fairly new here also.
    A few tip I've been getting is to try to not worry about how much you're getting paid at the moment and try to get in more HITs per say 500, 1000, 5000 as more opportunities come in then.
    You should also check out this daily thread:

    http://mturkforum.com/showthread.ph...-4-22-Work-Through-Hump-Day-Wednesday!/page81

    It's very active in there everyday.
    Great place to chat and find great HITs

    Hey guys, here's an update on my progress:

    The following is a summary of activity for your Mechanical Turk account for the week ending May 02, 2015.

    Your HIT activity for this week:
    - Number of HITs submitted: 305

    Approvals and payments that occurred this week:
    - Number of HITs approved: 302
    - Number of HITs rejected: 0
    - Bonus reward earned: $4.83
    - HIT reward earned: $20.46
    - Total Amount earned this week: $25.29

    I didn't put that much effort in this week, logged in about 20 hours. Even though the amount earned says $25, I actually put $40 in the bank from Mturk this week. The trickle is becoming a rivulet.

    I'm afraid $100 per week as a main source of income is dangerous,
    aim more than that.
    The bigger, the better :)
