What you usually do on Facebook? Your answer might be adding new friends, updating status, playing games, filling up quizzes. Isn’t it? Now you can turn your Facebook time into dollars.
You probably heard the phrase “Make Money on Facebook” while looking for some sort of online business or some ways to make few extra cash online. Usually, “Make Money on Facebook
” is offered by the online marketers or social media optimizers who claim to promote your business or website on Facebook to turn some users to customers or regular visitors and thus offer you to make money on Facebook.
CloudCrowd is the first money making opportunities that I found that enables users to make money online on Facebook. Well, to be precise CloudCrowd basically just uses Facebook as a platform to promote and introduce their money making opportunities website. CloudCrowd looks just like a freelancing job website that works around Facebook.
CloudCrowd is a company situated in San Francisco. The company has been featured on NBC, USA Today and TechCrunch. It’s a fairly large company with about 15000 registered workers. CloudCrowd helps companies increase efficiency by breaking large projects into smaller tasks. These small tasks are then distributed to their proprietary virtual workforce. That’s how we get the work tasks and make money completing them. If you’ve been working as a freelancer for some time, I’m sure you’ll get used to the work tasks at CloudCrowd easily. Most of the work tasks are simple and easy. If you have additional skills like programming and understands several languages, you’ll have the upper advantage. Some of the example tasks include written text grading, editor, summarizer, translations, image editing, information research, documents editing and many more. Each task is price rated differently according to difficulty and time consumption. Payments are done via PayPal. Sign up are free and you need a Facebook account. I couldn’t find the minimum pay out required so I’m assuming CloudCrowd pay every penny the next business day. If you’re able to complete the work and approved before 5pm Pacific Time, you’ll get paid.
Previously, there was no such way to make money directly on Facebook for the general folk except skilled one who is able to develop Facebook application & put sponsored ad on it.
Cloud Crowd is a small company that allows you to make money directly on Facebook without having any skill. Cloud Crowd is a Facebook application that let people work online. In your free time , instead fo completing those silly quizzes on facebook or playing games, you can now put in a few minutes of work and get paid for it.
How Cloud Crowd works?
Cloud Crowd is a Facebook application that attempt to connect people who need work done with people who want to work. Cloud Crowd has been providing works via their Facebook application since September, 2009. You may heard about MTURK, an Amazon backed home based money making scheme. Cloud Crowd is also more or less like MTURK. They are small company & the Facebook application is still in Beta.
Types of Works/Assignments:
Typical projects include image and video tagging, finding information online, and quick writing and editing projects. Work ranges in difficulty, and longer tasks typically pay more.
They plan to roll out more types of work but at the moment you can:
|Find Websites for Non-US Companies ( Online Research)||About $0.17 each|
|Review Websites Selections (Categorize, Tag & Label)||About $.02 each|
|Edit badly written English paragraphs||About $1.44|
|Grade written text (Categorize, Tag & Label)||About $.05|
How Much you can earn?
Will it make you rich? The ans is No. How much you can earn depends on what type of work will you do & how much time you have to spend. They are a small company and the application is still in Beta, so don’t expect to make a million dollars.But you sure can earn a little extra money for a few minutes of easy work online.
I found some people writing about the amount of cash they earned from Cloud Crowd on different money making forums and on their own blog.Lets see how much they earned.
“This application is through facebook. I did not want it having access to all my friends, etc, so I created a second facebook account just for this. In about 1.5 hours, I’ve accumulated about $25.”
“I made $8.54 yesterday for about 15-20 minutes of work. Not enough to make me rich…but enough to pay for me and my daughter’s stop at Culver’s yesterday!”
“If you can rewrite quickly, you can make about $10-$15 an hour.”
So, earrning range from a nickle to several dollars that are enough to buy lunch or coffee!
There is a credibility score applied to accounts by the system and your work is graded. Future opportunities and pay may be related to that score.
The best part is you get paid DAILY via paypal. Work approved by 5:00PM Pacific Time will be paid by midnight of the next business day.
