In the world of online work from home sites, there are scams, scams and more scams. But one company that stands out is mturk. It is an Amazon company. You have to register on the site as a worker. Once you do that, you are taken to the list of tasks available, also called as HIT. Choose the HIT that you want to work on.
Complete the work and submit it. Once your submission is accepted by the requester (the employer), your account is credited with the fee for the task. You can withdraw this amount in Indian Rupee via a cheque, after paying $4 as cheque processing fee. I got mine today.
You can work on as many HITs as you want. In certain cases, the client may keep the task exclusively reserved for you, if you are good. I have been contracted by one of the employers to work on the hypnosis articles that he wants.
The HITs can be quite simple like registering at the site and sending the username to the employer or more complex task like audio transcription. You can choose the task as per your skill level. Certain employers do offer bonus if you do good work.
