You're talking about generating damn near $11k-$22k a year in passive income. Unless you're already well off that'll be difficult.

If you had a million dollar stock portfolio and got back a 2% average dividend rate you'd generate that.
Actually, its super easy barely an inconvenience.

Malarkey. You cats just don't have any hustle in you. I did my first +200 designs myself, using GIMP and Inkscape, because I got tired of waiting on my punk ass brother, who happens to have a graphics degree, to create basic shyt for me. As I stated in a previous post, I just logged into my Merch account I never used, last November on a whim, and got started. The overwhelming majority of my designs are just text of bullshyt quotes I either made up or paraphrased from some work in the public domain. Hell, I've made some of those quotes from peoples posts on here. I've never put in more than two hours a day doing this shyt. If I see a font I like, I either pay for the license, if reasonable, or create my own font similar to the one I found.

A regular month of revenue for me is between $850 to $1.1K a month. I made $1.8K in November. This is my first Xmas season selling Merch and I've almost reached what I made last month and it's not even the half-way mark yet.

My only cost, in the beginning, was a monthly MerchInformer subscription at the Newbie leve. I upgraded to the Pro after I found a 75% discount code ($14.99) shared on Reddit. MI ran a campaign offering a lifetime Yearly Pro membership for $89.99 in April which I purchased. My only other cost is submitting a collection of all my templates, at the end of the month, to the US Copyright Office which costs me $55.

Just caught this juicy morsel.

I use this program called Outscrape (cost $99/yr) for scraping websites for data. It only takes me about five minute to create the template in Outscrape to scrape this site. Once it's created, I just click start scraping and it does all the work for me. When it's done, it's saves it in json format which I then upload to an online json to csv conversion site.

Easy, peasy 20 bucks.

I also use it for myself and others to scrape data off of county websites for real estate leads (probate,tax delinquent, pre-foreclosure, etc.). I start at $0.25/lead. More if they require more data per lead.

See y'all late tomorrow. Amazon just activated Expanse season 4 early. Thanks to Sandmann79 for creating the Amazon Prime Video Kodi plugin and thanks to the California State Community College system for allowing me to sign up for an .edu email so that I can get Prime for the next four years at the student price of $6.54.

What exactly do you do on here?

Mostly surveys. I do batch work every once in a while if I can get a good hourly rate doing them.

That 500 dollar batch was automated. I did the first page manually and created the mouse movements and clicks using xdotool on Linux. Windows/Mac users can use the AutoHotKey tool to do what I did. The requester needed 9000+ records changed. Once I plugged in the X,Y mouse pointer & click locations, page down/scrolls, my script did the work for me. If I only had one machine doing it, it would have taken about 11 hours. So, I fired up 5 Amazon EC2 instances, and split the 90+ pages in fifths. Computer 1 did pages 1-20, Computer 2 did 21-40, etc. I had to watch them every four or five pages as the web pages would sometimes freeze or refresh slower than average and that would mess the script clicking up where it would bypass some records. This was my first time using that level of automation and it worked out well.

In this vid below, everything is automated. Once I figured out the distance in pixels between the center of where I wanted to click on each row and where the next row I need to start on when I scrolled, it was basic addition. The mouse movements/clicks, in the popup window were the same for every action of the rows. I just had to figure out the delay times between movements in order for everything to work right (between 500 and 1000ms in some parts and 2000ms for a page change). I think it took about 7 minutes and 30 some seconds per page automated.



The key to doing well on MTurk is not caring about making money on day one. You're in a race to get to 1000 approved HITs as quickly as possible within your first ten days (limited to 100 approved a day for the first ten days). I don't care if you have to do zero money HITs, bite the bullet and do them anyway if they're really easy i.e. select an option and click the submit button. The decent/good HITs open up at 1000 as most requesters use that as a minimum to do their HITs.

The MTurk FAQ for Newbies on Reddit is a good place to get started.
I wish I read this post when I got started which gives a guideline on how to get to 1000 as quickly as possible.

Now, I use Turkernator. It's cost $10 a month to use, but you don't need that. All you need is the MTS extension better known as the MTurk Suite. It's made by the same guy who makes Turkernator. Instead of having to install Tampermonkey and a bunch of scripts for Panda Crazy (where you can accept and scan for HITs while you work automatically), everything you need for accepting HITs while you're working is contained in one extension. The extension works on Chrome & Firefox.

Installation & Howto For MTurk Suite


I will say that if I were you, pay for a TurkerView subscription. It's free for the first 30 days. After that, it's $4.99 a month. It's a user contributed rating system for MTurk requesters and their HITs. Once you add your TurkerView API key to MTS, the HITs in MTS's HIT Finder will be color coded. Green = good hourly rate, Yellow = okay hourly rate, Red = below minimum wager or bad requester. However, red doesn't always = bad. You could hire a coder to make a script for a red HIT were they can make it easy to the point where you can do them fast thereby increase the hourly rate to Green level or higher.

Also, I can't stress this enough. Always look for closed quals. That's where the real money is. These are HITs released by requesters, randomly, that lead to work that everyone doesn't get access to. They'll be terms in the HIT title/descriptions like qual, qualification, access, test/testing, validation, etc. that you need to look out for.

If you have any questions, ask them here.

P.S. It cost me a grand total of a whopping $0.41 cents to load up those five EC2 instances.

I also used Amazon's Transcribe service to transcribe audio for a $30 transcribe HIT. A little correcting here and there, formatting and correct labeling of the speakers, according to the HIT instructions, which took me less than 20 minutes. That only cost me $1.57.

@MasterOfAllHeSurveyz How many EC2 instances can you create on one desktop computer?

Not on my computer. It was on Amazon's cloud service. EC2 is the acronym Amazon uses for their VPS instances called Elastic Compute Cloud. I just used it for that one job. That's not a regular occurrance. There's no limit on how many instances you can spin up. Your only limit is your wallet.
