How does Clickworker work?
Using Clickworker is very simple and straightforward. Firstly, after signing up to the website you have to complete your user profile. Then you complete short assessments to see which type of job category or categories suit you the best. If you have good results from the short assessments then this would ensure many jobs for you to take on. When you complete these jobs online you can start getting paid on a weekly or monthly basis.
Benefits for you with Clickworker
If you deliver good quality work, then your earnings can increase. The great thing about ‘Clickworker’ is that you can work from home and complete work in your spare time. So even if you have a day job you can still earn some extra money on the side. ‘Clickworker’ takes care with the distribution of jobs to you and they take care of all the payments for you. You can get paid through SEPA or Paypal on a weekly or monthly basis.
When you have signed up you need to fill in your profile such as filling in your contact details as well as your interests, hobbies and experience. This will give Clickworker a good idea about which types of jobs are best suited for you. Once you have set up your profile the jobs start populating your profile. When I first signed up I was presented with 4 job opportunties. Three of them involved using my mobile phone or tablet, two of which required me to make videos. One job was a based on filling out surveys. I was also presented with a special promotion, which involved me recruiting others to ‘Clickworker’. The deal was that every time any new member that I referred earned 10 Euros I would earn 5 Euros.
The profile page has a good and clean design and is pretty simple and easy to navigate. There are various options to explore on the user friendly profile page. The home page contains a bulletin board with the latest jobs available to you. Each job ad contains a title for the jobs which includes a brief description of what you have to do. There was only one job when I signed up that didn’t have a brief description of what I had to do, but instead said ‘for smartphones and tablets only’. Therefore, there are some jobs that require you to be using a specific devise like the ones stated. Some jobs even tell you how much money you could earn. For example, the very first job I recieved was a job where you had to ‘Record 3 selfie videos about your shopping experiences’ and it stated that you could earn 15 euros for each job. Each job advertised contains a time limit, for example the time limit for one job was 480 minutes, where another job’s time limit was only 60 minutes.
Next to the ‘All Jobs’ tab there is a ‘Offers & Promotions’ tab and these are provided by partners of Clickworker, and it is clearly stated that the offers provided have no relation to the services provided by Clickworker. Your profile seems to be updated with new jobs on a regular basis, because when I signed up I recieved a new job about 20 to 25 minutes after I first logged in, adding to my orginal 4 jobs making it 5.
There is a news column linked to Clickworkers blog is to the right of the ‘All Jobs’ and ‘Offers & Promotions’ tabs. The blog seems to have article pieces on apps and technology and other articles talking about quizzes and competitions that you could take part in to win prizes.
My thoughts on ‘Cllickworker’ so far
Clickworker seems to be a great website to earn some extra cash in your spare time. From what I have experienced so far, they definately deliver in terms of small jobs that can be completed quickly. However, from the looks of it not all jobs would appeal to me such as making selfie videos, which might be preffered by some one else. I’m more of the survey or proof reading guy and I’m sure I’ll recieve those types of jobs too sooner or later.
