“What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?
“Amazon Mechanical Turk is a marketplace for work that requires human intelligence. The Mechanical Turk service gives businesses access to a diverse, on-demand, scalable workforce and gives Workers a selection of thousands of tasks to complete whenever it’s convenient.
“Amazon Mechanical Turk is based on the idea that there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo or video, performing data de-duplication, transcribing audio recordings, or researching data details. Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce (which is time consuming, expensive, and difficult to scale) or have gone undone.
“What is a HIT?
“A Human Intelligence Task, or HIT, is a question that needs an answer. A HIT represents a single, self-contained task that a Worker can work on, submit an answer, and collect a reward for completing.”

You can be a stay-at-home mom, a student who needs extra spending money, or if you simply love helping others while making some extra cash alongside, this is the place for you. Joining Microworkers as a Worker does not mean you are employed by the site. Instead, you will be working as a freelancer. With that, you can work as much or as little as you want.

“ShortTask has subdivided its working into two categories — solvers and seekers. The solver works on individual tasks, earns in dollars, and gets paid only once the seeker approves the work. The seeker assigns individual tasks, gains access to thousands of solvers, and pays only when satisfied.
“ShortTask provides a common platform for both solvers as well as seekers. Once the seeker assigns a new Task, the solver can immediately work on it and get paid if the seeker approves the Task. This is actually as simple as it sounds!
“What is a Task?
A Task is a job assigned by the seeker. The Tasks can range from in-depth research and content writing to video transcribing and data processing. The solver can work on the Task for a given period and earn reward once approved by the seeker.”
