When you have filled in your profile and accomplished at least one evaluation test Smart Crowd can send you job offers by email. Don’t be surprised if they don’t send them immediately. They will send you most likely a few jobs per month. The more and better skills you have, the more chances you have to get their jobs. However, sometimes the fastest guy gets the job (not the smartest guy).
As I mentioned above, Smart Crowd offers mainly data entry and translation jobs. The reason why many companies want to outsource their data entry jobs is that almost anybody can do it and it’s not complicated. On the other hand, the salary is also very small. Nowadays it’s easy to find people who can do jobs for a small salary.
Your actual earnings may vary a little bit. The payout is anywhere from 0.20 cents per 1,000 keystrokes to 0.60 cents per 1,000 keystrokes. You can quickly see that the salary isn’t very big. Most likely you’ll be earning much less than a minimum wage if you are living in the U.S., U.K. or in other western countries. Usually, you won’t be earning even close to $10 per hour on Smart Crowd.
Then you can earn money also by translating texts. However, I recommend other websites because there your earnings will usually be higher. I have used it sometimes and you can earn even $50 per hour. The more languages you speak/write, the more offers you’ll get.
To increase your hourly earnings you need to accomplish your work fast accurately. If you are living in a country where the cost of living is cheaper like Philippines, Indonesia, Eastern Europe, Africa or Latin America, it’s easier to make a living and live comfortably.
