I have tested MinuteWorkers.com for you, a service that offers you to complete quick micro-jobs for a small payment.
Review At A Glance

MinuteWorkers.com is a site that offers very simple and cheap micro-jobs. You can use it either as an "employee" completing tasks that are offered to you, or as an "employer". Or both.

Pros:

  • Rather easy to use

Cons:

  • Employee: your proof can be denied by the employer for no valid reason.
  • Employee: do the maths. Several minutes spent on a $0.10 "job" means you're working for 1 or 2 US dollars an hour! And the jobs that pay more are usually longer to complete.
  • Employer: from an Internet Marketing point of view, this is a waste of time and money, no real results are to be expected.

I have recently discovered MinuteWorkers.com and decided to give it a shot, both as an "employee" and as an "employer" - note the quotes, we're not talking here about real legal employee / employer relationships. There are members who offer tasks and members who realize them in exchange of a very small payment - usually less than $1 (minimum $0.10).

My experience as an employee:

translatorjobs 125Although this wasn't what I was looking for I decided to test this part of the site first, just to see how it looks like, and to help me create the right tasks offers at a later stage. So I completed a couple of "jobs" for $0.10 each. When You complete a "job" you must provide a proof, the proof to provide is clearly stated in the job's description. So as long as you comply with what's being required, you should get paid.

  • For each of the jobs I completed, the task was: sign up to some site, confirm your subscription, and log in at least one.
  • The proof required was, in each case, the e-mail used to sign up and the user name. I'm guessing here the "employer" intended in both cases to verify I had actually logged in at least once as he required.
  • I did sign up and log in, then submit my proof as required.

So here I was, I had completed two jobs and was waiting to get paid twice $0.10. The next day I had two messages in my account, saying my proof had been denied by the employer. The reason: "Please remain active". Now please read one more time my points above about the jobs I chose to do: where does it say "stay active" as a required condition and what does "stay active" means, exactly? I have no idea. So my next action was this:

  • My proof has been denied for the wrong reason.
  • I make an appeal - as every member has this possibility - saying the job description didn't require me to "stay active", neither does it states what "stay active" means.
  • According to their procedure the guys at MinuteWorkers.com take every appeal into consideration and you're being asked not to appeal several times concerning the same job

It's been over a week... I haven't heard back from them, and haven't received my $0.20 either. They don't have to worry, I won't appeal twice... Actually I won't waste my time with them I have better things to do, especially for a few cents when the task takes me at least 3-5 minutes and then I'm not even sure of getting paid. Even for 3 minutes, you have 20 times 3 minutes in an hour (20 x 3 = 60), so at $0.10 for a 3 minutes work it's... $2 an hour. Who would work for $2 an hour???

As an employer

I decided to give the employer side a shot before getting the above results. I loaded my account with $10, thinking I could offer simple Twitter "retweet" tasks for $0.10 each and then have 100 retweets... But actually, not all tasks can be offered for such a low price, certain categories have minimums. And to have a tweet re-tweeted by people who have at least 100 followers or more (which is nothing, really...) it's $0.40 minimum. If you want people who have 200 followers or more (still nothing... Twitter gets interesting once you have several thousands followers) it's $0.65.

Since my account was loaded it was too late so I decided to give the $0.40 one a shot... I've been able to offer my re-tweet task to 21 people. And indeed I got 21 re-tweets but:

  • They're not targeted. I have no idea who these people are and if their followers may be interested in what I have to offer!
  • I haven't had any other result out of those re-tweets. My new followers are still growing at the same rate, and I didn't get any clicks on the link included in the tweet.

Of course I had to approve each "emplyee's" proof which is quite an easy process as long as you give them a good and simple explanation on what the required proof actually is. I had asked for the direct link to the re-tweet but some didn't understand - although it's not that complicated - still most of them managed to give me at least the link to their Twitter profile where I have been able to see the re-tweet they had made.

Conclusion

To me, MinuteWorkers.com is just a waste of time, for both employers and employees. The only ones making a profit out of it are the people offering the service. In my opinion I've lost several hours trying it, as well as $10, but I've done this so you wouldn't have to do the same so I consider it was worth it. Now this is my opinion and you don't have to agree so if you want to give it a shot go ahead, it's quite easy to sign up and use.
