Learn the basics by reading the help section. Learn what a PandA is and how to use it. Learn how to use scripts to help you find HITs. In my opinion one of the biggest keys to making "big" money is time management. If you aren't working on HITs you aren't making money. Learn how to do batches. Learn how to write scripts to maximize your earnings on the batches you do. Lets get a list going so we can point people here. Some reading material to get you started.
Movin up on mturk by DCI List of mTurk Scripts. Lowlife , Dec 29, Sep 20, Messages: Even if you are going to concentrate on surveys, find a batch at the start of the day and switch to it in between survey, always be making money even if it is pennies.
This also helps to keep you from wandering to something else like Facebook or video games. Hamar , Dec 29, Like x 14 Love x 1. Oct 18, Messages: Do these hits if you haven't found them while you were busy working on your queue or searching for other hits -Set a certain time and stick to it.
The earlier the better. For example if you wake up at around 5 AM EST, go through the entire Reward Most first filter and do every single hit that you believe is worth your time. I usually go down to the. I think a lot of people here just turk, then go on Youtube or look at facebook. Turk and keep your attention on turk for the hours you set. Like x 20 Love x 5. Like any job this one has skills that need to be "mastered".
You don't walk into a sells job and become top sells man the first week. You don't walk into a job with no skills and become the top dog. It takes time to develop the skills needed. Every day people ask how do you make so much money. It takes time and dedication to get to that "level".
Don't get down on yourself. Like x 10 Love x 1. Jul 20, Messages: I think while some of the practical aspects of making a lot of money have been covered, I'll touch on just 3 of the more mental aspects for now, I'm sure I will find more as time goes on.
Having the right frame of mind is key.
Being negative and down on yourself about your ability to make any money isn't going to help. It'll just lead to self-sabotage and hamper your efforts! Quit comparing yourself to others. Focus on doing YOUR best and improve on what you need to, and it will be alright. Know what and why you're turking.
TowerCityValkyrie , Dec 29, Oct 10, Messages: There is some really good advice so far in this thread but what it really comes down to is finding your own way and sticking to it. Everything on this forum is like a skeleton - you must provide your own meat and muscle to build up your body of earnings, so to speak.

Also, as what was mentioned before getting distracted is huge. Even the couple of minutes you spend looking at the forum or GIFs adds up and is huge, as cliche as it sounds it is a big deal. Even me typing this post is costing me potential money. I don't think most people realize how big it is to get their time eaten up by small distractions throughout the day. A difficult fact that some may have to face is simply that they're not cut out for that kind of life.

Something else I see. People get used to a "regular" requester. In the turk game you never know when a requester will disappear. Always be looking for something new. If you get complacent one day that requester will disappear, or you lose a qual for no reason or a reason , etc. Yuk , Jan 9, Jun 25, Messages: I am about a month old to Mturk and I love this!
I just want to say a quick hello and Thank You so much, everyone, for sharing all of your valuable information to help newbies like me to finding all the earning potential Turking has to offer. Restrepo , Jul 7, Dec 20, Messages: Pay attention to what you eat and understand what it is doing to your metabolism, concentration, and mood.
It's very easy to ruin an entire day of work by eating the wrong thing for breakfast. The "traditional" breakfast mostly salt, sugar, fats, and caffeine is the worst.

Also, in order to get those hits you will need to be fast! Other turkers are looking for those very same hits!
It is important to keep in mind about how much money you're actually making vs a real time wage. If you're doing those penny hits or even twelve cent hits, you need to make sure that it is worth your time. Personally, I don't do certain hits that pay a certain amount. I tend to do about two to three hits a day and I usually reach my goal. I'm selective with the type of hits that I do. It is also important to note that you need to have a certain percentage and amount of hits to start doing some of the better paying ones!
Plus an extra bonus on the cake is having the ultimate qualification which is the Master Qualification! CMB , Jul 31, Aug 17, Messages: What has really helped me is hit monitors, hitscraper, and turkmaster. They all serve a certain purpose for me. I have a ton of favorite requesters batches, surveys that I make alerts for. One of my favorites is muhammad s. I would use the forums to help me find good requesters with batches as well I've been turking for a month and a half.
Love x 2 Like x 1. Jan 28, Messages: This is a very motivating post! Thank you for posting it. I personally use Earn Honey. You can also try it Mac Jones , Apr 4, You know, it's easy to forget some things. A lot of good info is in this thread that, I guess, leaked out of one of my ears. I will read through this thread every day until I'm actually doing everything in it.
It all makes so much sense, and then life's distractions come around and it slips away. Feb 20, Messages: Or should I count my losses and go for a walk, only to come back and find a huge batch dropped the minute I left xD. Klitch , Apr 13, Always Be Turking for a set period of time. So I wouldn't go for a walk unless it was the scheduled time to go for a walk. It's also good to have other income sources in place for slow periods on MTurk.
I'll pop over to Prolific Academic to see if anything is listed, I might try a few internet searches for Qmee pennies, etc. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
