Microwork opportunities

Hello all! Welcome to another post of remote work opportunities!
This time I am focusing on microwork opportunities that I have actually tried and tested personally.

I started looking for remote work very young as a teenager, and I have explored many options. Some of these I did way back then and even continue to do every so often now for extra cash or to see if they are still legitimate.
These opportunities were so helpful for the extra money and also gave me valuable experience in remote work!

And with the holiday season in full swing (and almost over if you think about it) many of us are spending way more money than usual.

While these opportunities are something you can do any time of year, I figured this would be a great time to make this post.

So let me start out by explaining what microwork is to anyone who might be wondering.
Basically, microwork is work that involves small tasks usually paid by the task (not hourly or salary).
Typically, it is pretty simple work. Even as a new teenager, I was able to learn quickly and do well.
For most, there is a lack of benefits. So no insurance, paid time off, etc. Being able to work anywhere, make your own schedule, and earn as much as you want/can are all great positives though!
Sometimes there will be bonuses for being a top performer or great work productivity so that is another plus.

These are all different kinds of opportunities, so there is very likely something you will want to try. Check them out!

1. Scribie
First up is Scribie. One of the absolute BEST microwork opportunities I’ve ever done. This is transcription work and if you can type fast and accurately, this is a great option. You do have to qualify via test, but once you’re in, you can get started right away working from transcription itself up to reviewer!
You can also earn through referral and affiliate links.
2. FancyHands
FancyHands is all about virtual assisting. If you like to research and help people complete their tasks, you might want to consider this. The pay was decent per task and there usually was work to do. From what I saw, it looks to have grown quite a bit since I started years ago. With everyone being so busy, it’s no wonder!
3. Humanatic
Humanatic is where you can review calls. There are multiple categories of recorded phone calls and each is a different amount earned for each call completed. There is no talking or making calls, just to clarify.
For some, you will just need to choose from multiple choice, while others require typed responses.
4. Swagbucks
Swagbucks is typically referred to as a “survey site”, which it is, but there are also more things to do than just surveys. Earn Swagbucks by watching videos, searching on the web, making purchases, and more. Especially if you do a lot of online shopping, doing it through Swagbucks can help you earn back!
5. Usertesting
This is the newest one I’ve tried and was so excited to do so. Usertesting is a website testing opportunity. If you qualify for the tests (which you will have to, the one downside) then you should be able to do well on this site. If you like checking out and testing websites/games then this could be an awesome choice for you!

So there you have it. 5 awesome and easy choices to earn extra money through microwork opportunities and either build up or start your work at home experience.

I have successfully gotten paid from all of these options, so I can say from experience that none of them are questionable or scams at this point.

Also keep in mind that there are other microwork opportunities out there as well! If none of these work for you, there are plenty more to choose from.

So now I’d love to hear from you!
