You need to get something done, say you need a thousand little like repetitious, tedious tasks that need to be done but you just don't have the time for it because you don't mind spending maybe, like a nickel or a dime per task because it’s just that small task though like really, sometimes minor tasks. Well, you can use amateur to get the stuff done by having other people work on them for you and then you just basically pay off for each hit of our task. That is completed up to your specifications. So, after you put up a bunch of hits. People work on them and then you just pay them accordingly. Now on the flip side, if you want to make some money and you want to sit here for maybe 30 minutes or so, you can make a little bit of money doing these small tests online. Just I mean, some are so easy, it doesn’t require you too much of work or knowledge to get things done. They’re just, you know, tedious work a lot of times. So this is what you can do.

This is 8 cents, 7 cents. So let’s take a look at this top one right here. What they're asking us to do here is to verify the nutritional information about comparing data to various web sources description. Give a brand of food item as nutritional breakdown, verify it either a corrected nutritional data using the internet, that’s all you have to do. So what we'll do here is view Hit in this group and you can see right here what you're doing here, it shows you this is one of the hit items that you're going to do for this particular request.

So you can see here, if you have a time, you can pop this out pretty fast if you’re pretty quick, you know, web searcher or whatever it is. But like, the tasks are different. This one right here is just verifying the information in it. The thing is, is if you are really good at something, you may well do of this really fast and you may be make so much of cash on the site for just sitting online and this could wait, kind of be productive, I guess.
