    At some point, the crutches gotta come OFF.

    My "crutch" was a shitty, dead-end minimum wage caregiving job I had held for 2 years. I broke that bitch like cheap chopsticks. Got myself fired. It was a F*cking blessing!

    Now I get to fully focus on my E-Commerce venture I had put off for 2 years. I was too much of a pussy back then to follow through with my FastLane goals. Now it's balls to the wall, ALL OR F*ckING NOTHING.

    So how do I do this without a 9-5 or savings?

    Enter Amazon Mechanical Turk. (NOT an affiliate link)

    If you're looking for a quick paying, "On Demand" job as @MJ DeMarco likes to call them (that's the term I was looking for, thanks) Turking is a great place to start.

    It's a database filled with THOUSANDS (possibly a hundred thousand) daily tasks (aka HITs) which include surveys, transcriptions, proof-reading projects, data entry jobs and various other gigs posted by requesters.

    I use the income to cover rent, bills, WiFi, gas, and most of my other necessities.

    Not quite Fastlane, but not quite Slowlane either....and it'll DEFINITELY get your a$$ off the Sidewalk!

    It's simply one of the BEST crowdsourcing platforms for new entrepreneurs.

    If you disagree, you just don't know what the hell you're doing.

    I've banked close to $5k in barely 5 months. And I was a NOOB.

    Numbers don't lie.

    In fairness, buddy of mine did show me the ropes last week of July. I picked up on it quick. So that's 4.5 months, with an earnings count of $4,879.35 to date. That's roughly $1,084 per month. $300-$400 per week.

    If an Average Joe, non-techy guy like me can do it you sure as hell can too.

    I'll be on here to answer any questions. I got lucky and was shown the ropes in detail. So I feel it's only right to pass on the favor.

    HMU in my inbox for any questions.

    I worked on Turk mostly doing surveys for .10 to .25 per survey. I think my best month was $30, but I was new to it and thought it was cool. It took up a ton of time. Over however long I did things, I probably made about $300. It got monotonous doing survey after survey after survey for only .10 or .25 at a time.

    How many hours per day would you say you worked to eventually make that $300-$400 per week?

    What was the bulk of the tasks that you were completing?

    What did you find was the sweet spot for Value vs. Time?

    MTurk Suite

    MTurkSuite features the three main tools: HITFinder, HITCatcher, and HITTracker.

    I was grinding out 8-10hrs a day my first couple weeks. There are certain requesters who release multiple, similar HITs with slight variations (called Batches). You can do one after the other, and they stack up.

    I'd say the "Sweet Spot" was when I'd catch $30-$50 HITs (usually 1-2 hour data entry tasks you could get with certain qualifications) then kicking back on some $0.50 batches and make $100+ that day :cool::cash::cash::cash:

    Yeah I’d rather pick up a couple shifts at my job than work hours upon hours for what amounts to less than minimum wage after taxes.

    Based on your $1k a month figure...

    Let’s be generous and say you get 2 $50 gigs a week...that’s $100 a week ($400/mo)....so you have another $600 to earn on surveys...

    Again being extremely generous and saying you’ll earn $.50 per survey....you’ll need to take 1,200 surveys to make that $600...

    ...that’s 38 surveys per day

    ...averaging 15 min per survey that’s 9.6 hours of survey taking which comes out to a grand total of...

    ...$3.40 an hour...(crickets)

    Imagine if you spent those hours learning a new skill and grabbing a $1k a month client...

    I know people have to start somewhere but at least do better than McDonald’s.

    Long ago, when I used to binge-read 'How to get rich/earn money young' articles online, taking surveys for some small cash was a common point in the articles.

    I was too afraid to do it. I'd get stoned faster than weed would do to me doing those 'value-less' things.

    I don't understand why companies want to toss out these surveys for. Marketing? Do the survey takers even represent their target demographic at all? Accurately? Without biases? Hope they aren't throwing money into the wind, every wasted penny adds up.

    It's $10 to $12 hourly on M-Turk. 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    McDonald's? Really? Buddy a McDonald's cashier would shit all over your horrible math...LMAO

    FYI: I'll cook and sell crack out of a coffee pot before I scrap for $3.40/hour. You trippin boy.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough:
    HITs vary in duration and objective.
    NOT ALL HITs ARE SURVEYS.
    Surveys are only one category of HITs.


    A $20, one-time HIT may take up to one hour.
    While a $1.25 recurring HIT (part of a batch) may take a minute or less.

    It all depends on the requester.

    Take a gander.


    HF 2.png

    As you can see, each HIT pays differently.

    In my opinion the most cost-effective HITs are the easy, high-paying HITs and batches that take no more than 5 minutes.

    For example. In my second week of Turking, I made $300 off a $2.50 BATCH (a set of multiple HITs). Within ONE HOUR.

    I bullshit you not.

    Each HIT was a navigation test for the prototype of an RLS (Real-time strategy) computer game. 120 HITs total. 30 seconds to complete each HIT. NOT 15 MINUTES.

    Knockin em down one after the other. While drinking beer and flirting with some cute, booty-shorts-wearing Latinas at a local Starbucks.

    But hey, Turking isn't for everyone. Do what makes you happy.

    I like my freedom. Working like a sprinter. Busting out 12 hours on M-Turk. Making my electric bill. Sleep. Wake up, do some coding for my E-Commerce website. Research / cold-call new dropshipping suppliers. List SKUs. Lift some heavy a$$ weights. Nap. Take a couple of Fiverr gigs, make $50. Sleep. Wake up, spar five rounds at my boxing gym. Beat up some young bloods. Hit the heavy bag. Run eight miles til I feel like dying. Go home, sleep. M-Turk for three days, make rent, eat, sleep. Repeat.



    RECAP:

    Each HIT pays differently.
    HITs vary in duration and objective.

    NOT ALL HITs ARE SURVEYS.
    M-TURK is a useful source of EXTRA income. But it should only be the means to your end.

    Hope that all made sense.
    Hmu for any questions.

    Your man,
    Hustlin Heathen

    Yeah I'm hating hard

    Super jealous of the guy that volunteers to listen to indie-alternative and answer a survey about it for $0.35

    This is insanely slow lane unless you outsource it somehow, even then I don't see how you can make a legitimate business model off this

    Maybe I'm missing something

    At least you're messing around with other shit on the side

    But you can put in 1/8 the effort you put into this Turk bullshit and land a client or two with a proper skill and some good marketing

    p.s.

    Where's this starbucks that lets you drink beer

    You're just jealous of someone working "only" 8-10 hours a day and making whopping 1000$ !
    *Edit . Didn't mean to be offending, but there is no excellence in doing surveys and $hit for 1000$ a month working full time. If I would be back in my home country (Eastern Europe) then It's pretty cool that I could make over average salary on my own terns, by doing simple online tasks. But for anyone from first world country It doesn't make sense (Scandinavia currently). No skill, no experience job pays 100+ per day after taxes, yeah, the job sucks, but You can work only 10 days a month to make the same amount and You have much more free time to work on fastlane projects.
    Still, I bet many people will benefit from this, therefore It's super nice for sharing this.

    South TX, RGV! My slice of Paradise :fire: :palm:

    The Valley's pretty chill. Most days are like a lazy, Mexican Oktoberfest. Beer, tequila, and bomb a$$ taquerias blaring country music or corridos on the radio.

    At Starbucks I once poured myself a cup of Wild Turkey straight from the bottle. Staff saw, didn't care. Figured beer would be the same and was right. Plus the girls I were chilling with could handle their booze so we stayed sippinnn

    How about Jersey? Is it really tanned up couples wilding out like fratboys?

    Damn. Okay, I'll be honest. I'm studying and part time working, have small online business on the side and preparing for next one (bigger, atleast that's the plan). As I am in nice country I get money from school + salary + money from my online business (not much).
    If I wouldn't be in school I would take part time job that covers living expenses and have even more time to work on projects.
    I find my situation to be perfect, I can work very little and school is easy, therefore I can work on my projects pretty easily. Next year I'm planning to launch my projects and build my life on that.
    So yeah, not rich, but in comfortable position to make considerably over 1000$ with little effort.

    Moved to landfill.

    I don't think being a survey monkey for 35c is building the skills or connections needed to move into the Fastlane.

    Also very suspicious promoting from a low post count member.

    Jersey ain't too bad

    Much like all cultures and subgroups, it's usually the loud attention whores that get the most attention, and thus define the group

    Huge diversity over here, being the spillway of NYC
    Lots of people lots of money

    Shit weather this time of year though

    For now, I've moved this out of the Landfill to the Hustle/Freelancing forum per some community requests. That forum/category is more suited for these grinds where capital building is the starting point and not necessarily "Fastlane" or "CENTS".
