Using Mechanical Turk - Turker Nation Can Help

Turker Nation Knows The Best Ways For Using Mechanical Turk.

People have so many questions when they first start using Mechanical Turk that I thought I would post some information about a wonderful resource (besides my short ebook) that can help you make money. The resource is the Turker Nation forum.

This forum is a community of workers who help each other understand how Mturk works, and I personally have found it an invaluable tool in my turking endeavours.

While Turker Nation is a forum for the turkers, they are not the only ones who can benefit from membership. Requesters can also get quite an education. Requesters are encouraged to communicate with the forum's moderators if they want to reach out to their workforce.

The features of Turker Nation include a requester's boardroom where you can find information about and communicate with some of the most popular requesters on Mechanical Turk and a special survey area where people post links to the most popular surveys of the day.

While you can gather a ton of information on Turker Nation, you should know that access to all areas of the forum is not instantaneous. You are required to participate in the forum (by posting) before you get to the best stuff. The site's mods won't tell you how many posts you need to make before that happens, but I will tell you that it's well worth it.

The only thing I'd caution you about is that you may find the site so dang entertaining that you're distracted from working, so put on your best work ethic hat when visiting.

Hope this helps you make lots of money using Mechanical Turk.

Because every little bit helps,

Carole Tee
