ClickWorker – Perform Small Tasks For Small Payments

“ClickWorker” is yet another website that you can use to work from home by performing small tasks for small payments. Specifically, you will be performing tasks that still require real human interaction to complete in order to assist with machine learning.

While you use the ClickWorker website, you will be performing hundreds of small tasks for hundreds of different companies from all over the world.

What does the work involve?

You will be performing tasks such as data entry, proof-reading, surveys, web research and information verification.

Other tasks include creating voice recordings, translation services, taking photos of facial expressions or even writing texts that companies can use text. You may even be asked to help assist with providing voice and facial recognition.

For web research tasks you may be asked to help companies find information such as competitors opening hours, physical addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and even potential customers.

Ultimately, every task is different and depends on what the client requires.


Is it for everyone?

Yes, anyone can work at ClickWorker assuming they pass a test for every client they wish to perform Micro-Tasks for.
More complex tasks require you to pass more complex tests, but a bit of simple common sense should ensure you can perform Micro-Tasks for most clients.


Can anyone apply?

No, firstly you must be 18 years or older to apply. They often require identification so if you are under 18 it’s not worth the risk in applying.

Secondly, you must reside in certain countries (these vary depending on their need for workers). It’s always worthwhile to keep checking when positions for your specific country are available.

Finally, you should have skills that clients may be looking for. For example, if a client requires translation services you will need to know a second language.


Is there enough work to make a living from?

No. We have been using ClickWorker for 3 months now and finding clients to work for is like entering a lottery. It’s very hit and miss to find work that you are accepted for.
Getting work also depends on your location at the time. For example, you will struggle to get a job for a client in California if you are based in the Mid-West of the USA.


So, what can you earn using ClickWorker?

Like other MicroTask platforms such as Appen, Social Advertising Machine or SurveyJunkie you will never make a fortune by completing MicroTasks. You will only ever earn a basic hourly rate.
These sort of jobs are ideal for people who want to earn a bit of extra money, or who cannot earn money any other way.

What you can actually earn is a bit of a grey area. According to ClickWorkers own website:

“The amount you are paid varies depending on the project and the description of the task”
“anywhere from cent amounts to two-digit euro sums”
“anywhere from cent amounts to two-digit euro sums”
“The fee is calculated according to the estimated average processing time as well as the level of difficulty, the length of the text, the amount of research involved or special knowledge skills required to fulfill the job”
“The faster the job gets done, the higher the targeted “hourly wage”

Confused? We were at first, but after 3 months of working using the ClickWorker platform we have found you will generally earn between $5 – $10 maximum per hour.


The bottom line

If you’re looking for a genuine company to make money with by completing MicroTasks then ClickWorker could be for you. Just don’t ever expect to calculate the quanitiy of work you will get or what you will get paid for doing that work. It’s very confusing.


Our Rating

Quality Of The Company and Job
The quality of the overall service and the job is fair. Tasks are often relatively straight-forward but the frequency they come along is poor and what you can earn from them is often a mystery.


Totally free so we have to give a top rating here.


Keeping a regular check on when applications open or when MicroTasks become available is key here. Overall we would rate availability as average.


A very comprehensive support section on their website and via a FAQ page. Email support was also very responsive in our experience.

Overall, we can RECOMMEND ClickWorker.
